The end of Simple Scrapbooks......


Last week the publishers of Simple Scrapbooks magazine announced that the May/June issue for this year will be their last. Apparently there just wasn't enough advertising around to keep both Simple Scrapbooks and Creating Keepsakes (also published by them) in print. It looks like Creating Keepsakes will be changing to accomodate some of the Simple Scrapbooks content and some of the staff will be moving over. Its a bit sad because they were very different mags and had a very distinct appeal - we stock them both and don't often send them out together.


The good news is that the February issue of Creating Keepsakes was delivered today along with the Feb/March issue of Digital Scrapbooking. They both look really fab, I was very impressed with the Digi Scrapbooking mag despite not being a digi scrapper myself. There were loads of step-by-step tutorials for enhancing your photos which is something I certainly need to get better at! If you are into digi scrapping or like playing in Photoshop you might want out check out this site http://www.obsidiandawn.com/ where you can download masses of gorgeous brushes and tutorials for FREE!!
I'd like to wish all the best to the staff and contributors of Simple Scrapbooks magazine, I'm sure they'll go on to do even more amazing things in the future!
