Have you gotten your January issue of Creating Keepsakes yet? Page 46 has an advertisement for "Club CK." Have you heard of it? I hadn't either! We are invited to join "Club CK" for only "pennies a day" to receive a "$250 value," but no specifics are given.
According to the advertisement, benefits include:
"A subscription to Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks — a NEW magazine from the editors of Creating Keepsakes featuring simple design solutions, fun techniques, time-saving tricks and the latest products. From organization, tools & techniques to inspiring scrapbook pages, you won't want to miss a single issue!
Discounts & Deals
Free online access to our Font Library & clip art
Community, contests and fun
And lots more!"
There isn't much more information provided, other than a URL and a toll free number. The URL takes you to a plain looking web page with a "coming soon" type of announcement and a place for you to enter your email address so you can notified once they launch.
Rumor has it that the regular magazine will move to being published only 8 times a year (with current subscriptions being extended to compensate for the reduced number of issues per year) and the new "Tips and Tricks" magazine will be published 4 times per year and priced separately. (This is unverified information at this point.)
Of course, I signed up for the email notification so I'll let you know as soon as I know more! Anyone else hear any rumors about this? What are your thoughts? I'm wondering if this is part of an effort by CK to eventually move most of the magazine online instead of printed?? I hope not! Even though PaperCrafter's Corner is a web online publication, I still enjoy curling up with a montly magazine when I can 🙂
