Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays – Week 93 Inspiration Piece

What do you think of our newest magazine inspiration piece?

I chose this magazine because it’s totally where my head’s at right now –
I’ve been an Easter papercrafting fool for the last few days!

And I’ll be sharing the projects I’ve been working on all week!

We can’t wait to see
what this week’s cover inspires YOU to create!

This week’s magazine cover/layout offers:

  • A dual-colored headline/title
  • A red call-out in the upper right corner
  • A soft teal background
  • Bright and beautiful Easter eggs
  • References to “Spring Ideas by the Dozen” and “Garden Fresh”
  • Little Spring flowers
  • And, perhaps you see something else?


What are YOU going to create this week?

Not sure how to use this week’s magazine as inspiration?
Simply leave a comment (comment link above or below) and we’ll do our best to assist you.


The Deadline & Creative Options

The deadline for submitting your papercraft projects this week is Sunday, April 5, 2015, at midnight (central, GMT-5).

As a reminder, this papercrafting challenge is not just open to cards or scrapbook layouts (which have both been popular entry categories), but to ALL papercrafted creations!

And, it’s open to ALL papercrafters,
wherever you are in the world!

How about creating something for your home or office or as a gift?

Whether you like to make home decor items, work in your art journal, create “repurposed” projects out of paper products, make cards, enjoy creating scrapbook layouts, or prefer book-binding, quilling or origami, or some other form of papercrafting, it’s all welcome!

Love this week’s inspiration for a Project Life or 365 entry or page?

Create and enter that! 

The ONLY requirements for entering the Magazine Mondays papercrafting challenge are that your entry must be a papercraft project – it must somehow incorporate paper – and that it must be submitted by the deadline. 

Playing along with this week’s papercrafting challenge is easy:

  • Go create something – any papercraft project – based on this week’s inspiration (above)
  • Come back to this post and leave a comment, including a link to where you’ve posted your papercraft creation, by midnight (central time, GMT-5) on Sunday, April 5, 2015.
  • Check back often to see what others have created and posted (and show your fellow papercrafters love by commenting on their creations!)

We’ll be checking the comment section of this blog post for comments and links to papercrafting goodness, and we’ll pin all the creations to our Magazine Mondays Pinterest board and link to them on our Facebook page so everyone can be inspired. (Note: be sure your papercraft creation is not blocked from being pinned if you want it added to our board.)

Then, on Monday, April 6, 2015, we’ll randomly choose one papercrafter from this week’s papercrafting challenge entries to receive a fun papercrafting prize.

And, their winning entry will be called out as ***THE WINNER*** on our Magazine Mondays Pinterest board, and a link to their entry will forever live in our Facebook timeline!

Having a hard time remembering to check our blog for each week’s inspiration piece?

Subscribe to our daily blog feed

Week 92 Submission By JPSCRAPS

JPSCRAPS created a bright and colorful birthday card.

She was obviously inspired by the cake from our inspiration piece.

I love that she did some stashbusting, not only using supplies she had on hand, but tools that haven’t been used in a while. Way to go!

Be sure to stop by JPSCRAPS’ blog to see the other cards she created last week.

Week 92 Submission By Tracy M.

Tracy created an elegant 40th birthday card.

She was inspired by the birthday theme of our inspiration piece.

I just love all that texture, don’t you?! With the popularity of gold and glitter right now, I’m sure this card will be a hit!

Be sure to stop by Tracy’s blog to see what else she’s been up to (we sure are happy to have her join in!).

Week 92 Submission By Karrie

Karrie created a lovely card that’s perfect for most any celebration.

She was inspired by the celebration theme and incorporated her own version of a circle – doilies!

I love the color combination and the way she cut out some of the doilies and layered them – lovely!

Be sure to stop by Karrie’s blog to learn more about her and what she likes creating.

Rebecca created a flashy birthday card for her Dad who’s turning 60 this year.

She was also inspired by the birthday theme of our inspiration piece.

I love the design in the panels on the card front and the way the cake really pops!

Be sure to stop by Rebecca’s blog to get to know her and to see her other projects.

Week 92 Submission By Suzi M.

Suzi created a “Celebrate” card that’s perfect for a birthday as well as other celebratory occasions. 

She was inspired by the red border and the birthday theme, and used last week’s challenge as motivation to catch up on birthday-card production. Yay!

I love the hexagon shapes and the way she created a visual triangle with the darker sequins – nice job!

Be sure to stop by Suzi’s blog to hear her thoughts on store-bought cards (I’m right there with ya, Suzi!).

Oh, and by the way, we’re glad “we won” and you joined in again last week. :)

Scrapbooking Mystery Giveaway Winners!

by Stephanie Hackney

Scrapbooking Mystery Giveaway Winners!
Who’s gonna be reading a fun new scrapbooking mystery?
We have two winners to announce!

Scrapbooking Mystery Book: Gossamer Ghost by Laura Childs (image)

Scrapbooking Mystery Book: Gossamer Ghost by Laura Childs

We have two more giveaway winners to announce – think you might be one of them?

We were provided with TWO hardcover copies of Gossamer Ghost, the newest book in the scrapbooking mysteries series by NY Times best-selling author Laura Childs, and TWO of our lucky scrapbooking-mystery loving scrapbookers have WON a copy!

What’s the book about?

From reviewers…

Scrapbook aficionados rejoice! Ms. Childs creates a charming mystery series with lively, quirky characters and plenty of how-to…Serving up some hors d’oeuvres of murder and mystery, creativity and fashion, she has a winning formula to get even the laziest of us in a scrapbooking mood.Fresh Fiction

“Delves deeply into the Big Easy’s food, culture, and fashion scene.” Kirkus Reviews

“Fast-paced with plenty of action…Terrific.” Midwest Book Review


From the publisher…
Carmela Bertrand knows that Halloween in New Orleans means a week of rabble-rousing, costumed craziness—and she can’t wait to get the party started. But when a local antiques dealer turns up dead, Carmela suddenly finds herself in a real-life dance macabre… An evening’s work deciding on the class schedule for her scrapbooking shop has put Carmela in the mood to kick up her heels. But after some strange noises draw her into Oddities, the neighboring antiques shop, Carmela’s night is abruptly put on hold when a bloody body falls out of a curio cabinet—and into her arms. While shop owner Marcus Joubert was known for being an eccentric with a penchant for eclectic merchandise, Carmela never thought he was the kind of man who could inspire the passion required to kill. But when Marcus’s assistant—and fiancée—Mavis reveals that a priceless death mask was also stolen, it becomes clear that murder wasn’t the culprit’s sole intention. Carmela can’t resist the urge to investigate the growing mystery, but as the list of suspects increases, she realizes it’ll take every trick in the book to unmask the killer thief before there’s another night of murderous mischief…

Ready to see if YOU are one of the lucky winners?
Congrats to our two winners…
Anastasia M.

Week 92’s Papercrafting Inspiration:

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays - Week 92 Inspiration Piece (image)

Papercrafting Challenge: Magazine Mondays – Week 92 Inspiration Piece

What do you think of our newest magazine inspiration piece?

I chose this magazine because I love the collage feel of the background.

And because we are celebrating my son’s birthday tonight!

Now, while my “little boy” certainly didn’t turn 40,
we will be celebrating with many candles tonight at his birthday dinner.

We hope this week’s cover inspires you to
grab your papercrafting supplies and PLAY along with us!

We can’t wait to see what YOU create!

This week’s magazine cover/layout offers:

  • A bold headline in an outlined typeface (I love the white around the edges of the word “TIME!”)
  • A heavy red border
  • A birthday cake
  • Candles
  • A collage background
  • A “dog-eared” corner which reveals a photo and additional contents
  • Historical events (that baby boomers are sure to recall)
  • The words “Baby” and “Boomers”
  • The number 40 (or 4 and 0)
  • And, perhaps you see something else?


What are YOU going to create this week?
