And now,
let’s see what your fellow papercrafters created…

Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays –
Week 131 Submission by Beverly J.

Beverly created a super cute card that’s perfect for staying in touch, and for an upcoming holiday!

She was inspired by the white space and the layered images (the trees, which she traded for cute critters) on last week’s inspirational magazine cover.

I love the way Beverly stacked her critters along the right side of her card and that way she added pops of red to tie into the card base – so cute, Beverly!

Be sure to stop by Beverly’s blog to see what else she’s been up to lately.

Week 131 Submission by Camille S.

Camille created an adorable birthday card that any birthday boy or girl would love to receive.

She was inspired by the colors from our inspiration piece.

I love the way the birthday penguin pops off the background with many shades of blue – great job, Camille!

Be sure to stop by Camille’s blog to check out her other projects.

Karen L.

Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays –
Week 131 Submission by Karen L.

Karen created a wonderful Christmas card – yes, Christmas card!

She says she’s thankful for the inspiration to start working on this year’s holiday cards and we couldn’t be happier to hear it!

I think I’ll take the hint and start mine now too!

She was inspired by the winter theme, snowy hillside and trees, and the blue and white from last week’s magazine.

I love the way Karen created a sloping, snow-covered hill with a curved edge and tree punch (or perhaps a die-cutting machine?) – clever, Karen!

Be sure to stop by Karen’s Flickr stream to check out her other papercrafted projects.

Jean M.

Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays –
Week 131 Submission by Jean M.

Jean did a bit of watercoloring after being inspired by last week’s magazine cover.

She didn’t mention what inspired her, but I’m sure we can all see the similarity in her design and last week’s inspiration piece.

I love the quote Jean included in her project and I especially love the “swirling” snow!

Hey Jean, care to explain how you created the swirls?

Be sure to stop by Jean’s blog to say hi!

Beatriz S.

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays – Week 131 Submission By Beatriz S.

Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays –
Week 131 Submission by Beatriz S.

Beatriz created a very interesting paper project.

She was inspired by the white theme and color from last week’s cover design.

I love the white on white and the way the paper appears embossed and debossed – come on Beatriz, you have to share how you created this!

Be sure to stop by Beatriz’s Flickr stream to welcome her back to our challenge – you’ve been missed!

Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays –
Week 131 Submission by JPSCRAPS

JPSCRAPS created a soft and lovely “natural” card.

She was obviously inspired by the trees from our cover.

I love the look of this – it reminds me of an etching! Great look, JPSCRAPS!

Be sure to stop by JPSCRAPS’ blog to see the other projects she’s been working on – she’s been very busy!

Suzi M.

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays - Week 131 Submission By Suzi M. (image)

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays – Week 131 Submission By Suzi M.

Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays –
Week 131 Submission by Suzi M.

Suzi created a fun scrapbook layout featuring, yup, you guessed it, her darling Sequoia!

She was inspired by the snow and the trees from last week’s magazine.

I love that Suzi used “leftovers,” pieces from the photo mat borders she punched, to create snowflakes on the background of her page – clever and resourceful, Suzi!

Be sure to stop by Suzi’s blog to hear about her latest adventures.

Isn’t it awesome how everyone’s projects are so different?

We LOVE it!

Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays –
Week 130 Submission by JPSCRAPS

JPSCRAPS created a lovely card that could be used to inspire a loved one, friend or colleague, or sent as a means of just staying in touch.

She was inspired by the rich black in our inspiration piece.

I love how JPSCRAPS picked one strong element (the color black) to focus on and the way the image and sentiment really pop off the stark, white background!

Be sure to stop by JPSCRAPS’ blog to check out the many (and I do mean MANY!) projects she’s submitted to our challenge over the last few years.

Leonor C.

Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays –
Week 130 Submission by Leonor C.

Leonor, who’s participating for only the second time, created a fun scrapbook layout about “her guy.”

She was obviously inspired by the black and white and red from our cover, but also seems to have been drawn to the smattering of small dots and dashes that filled the cover’s background.

I love that bold black and white stripe edge, and the pops of red, and the way Leonor included both in the frame around her photo – a great way to tie the elements together to make her guy really stand out!

Be sure to stop by Leonor’s post on Scrapbook.com to see what else she’s created.

Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays –
Week 130 Submission by Hazel H.

Hazel’s back (yay!) with a beautiful notebook layout featuring her Mom (and Hazel as a little girl?).

She was inspired by the bold, black title and doodling from this week’s inspiration piece, and the colorful background from the Week 129 inspiration piece we posted.

I love that Hazel chose to take inspiration from several places, especially since they were both inspiration pieces we shared!

And how awesome is that notebook cover? Beautiful, Hazel!

Be sure to stop by Hazel’s blog to learn more about why Hazel chose to create with a photo of her Mum and what she thinks of when she thinks of her. So precious.

Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays –
Week 130 Submission by Suzi M.

Suzi created another cute scrapbook layout featuring her cutie-pie granddaughter, Sequoia.

She was inspired by the little lines on the background of our magazine cover, as well as the crowns above the cover model’s eyes and including a model front and center!

I love the cute chalkboard banner Suzi created to top her page and that Suzi included her handwriting, a REQUIREMENT in last week’s challenge!

Be sure to stop by Suzi’s blog to say hi and to encourage her to create with us as often as possible.


Sad because you missed out on last week’s challenge?

Papercrafting Products Videos from CHA’s MegaShow 2016

by Stephanie Hackney

Papercrafting Products Videos from CHA’s MegaShow 2016
Papercrafting product walk-thru’s and demos, and chats with designers, oh my!

Yup, it’s that time of year again!

It’s time to share walk-thru’s and demos, and time spent with your favorite artists and designers, from the craft industry’s annual Craft and Hobby Association’s MegaShow (#CHAShow2016), which took place in Anaheim, California (USA) January 7-12, 2016.

Welcome to the CHA MegaShow - Winter (January) 2016 - Anaheim, CA, USA (image)

Welcome to the CHA MegaShow – Winter (January) 2016 – Anaheim, CA, USA

We’re back from CA and just wrapped up the process of downloading, editing, titling, uploading, tagging and writing the descriptions for the 21 videos Steph shot at this event!

We’re ready to give you another “insider” peek into the industry’s largest, U.S.-based trade event for crafting (and more specifically, papercrafting!) – ready to be inspired?


The five days Steph spent at this annual craft industry event – the Craft and Hobby Association‘s Mega Show – attending business sessions, checking out manufacturers’ workshops, chatting with other industry folks (and celeb spotting) and walking the show floor from one end to the other (multiple times so nothing was missed!), were captured “on film,” and there are not just videos to shares, but more than 1k pix too!

And we promise this is MUCH better than sitting through Uncle Milt’s vacation slides or home movies – these videos, and the 1000+ photos shot, are so much more fun and interesting ’cause they’re all about papercrafting and being inspired to create!


Since this event is not open to the general public, this is a chance for YOU to take a peek inside and see what goes on “behind the scenes” through the lenses of Steph’s cameras.

This is about showing you the stuff that makes us all ooh and aah, the fab NEW papercrafting goodies that’ll soon be making their way to your favorite local papercrafting stores, and the amazing projects your favorite artists and designers have created with them!

And the best aspect of the videos WE shot? You’ll find some unique content – tips and tricks shared in response to attendee questions, philosophical shares about what creating means to the artist being filmed, funny tidbits and more!


Steph’s focus was, of course, on all the new papercrafting products, but she always checks out products for all sorts of creative and crafting pursuits and she works hard to find and share something you might not see anywhere else.

This year’s “hot” finds?

You’ll just have to check out our videos and photo galleries to see if YOU can spot them!

Steph had pre-event meetings with potential business partners and then once the event was underway, she got busy with:

  • popping into some of the business sessions and workshops to see and capture what was being shared and/or created;
  • visiting 100+ booths (where her video camera and DSLR were always active!);
  • attending fun media and invitation-only events;
  • and, running into and catching up with old industry friends, as well as making some new ones!

And, she was one of three industry representatives invited to participate in a CHA Wrap-Up video series shot on-site – stay tuned for links to those wrap-up videos as well!

The “recorded proof” of this whirlwind five days is just a click away!
