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.
