Sad news for scrapbookers


I'm not a monthly buyer of magazines- I prefer books. But, of all the scrapping/crafting magazines I do own, and there are plenty, there are definitely more of Simple Scrapbooks than any other.

The sad news to be found at several sites, including the Simple Scrapbooks Blog, is that the magazine is shutting down. SS was the very best of the scrapping magazines for me. It focused on the pictures and the story and not on over-embellished pages or the latest trend. They are saying that the Simple Scrapbook ideas and techniques will continue to be shown in Creating Keepsakes, so I am hopeful. I REALLY hope that Stacy Julian will continue to write her wonderful books on the Simple Scrapbook concept. For the saddest commentary on the demise of SS, see Stacy's blog.

Isn't it awful? Stacy Jullian alluded to something the past 2 days on her blog, but didn't post until today. I guess she had to wait for the official announcement. So sad....

I really liked that one too. More than CK actually. Sigh.... I guess its a sign of the times. Hopefully things do not get too much worse before they get better.

I'm sorry to hear about your uncle. I hope you are starting to feel better. I'm sure this brutal weather is not helping.

I don't scrapbook, but I am still sorry to hear they are closing. I am kind of worried about a lot of the rubber stamp, etc. stores with our economy where it is.
