Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays-Week Nine
Happy Monday Everyone,
We hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
The weather here in Austin this weekend was amazing and we enjoyed some time outside (enjoying it while we can, before the “normal” Texas heat kicks in!).
Magazine Mondays, Week Nine
In Honor of Summer

This week’s papercrafting inspiration:
- Papercrafting Inspiration: Magazine Mondays – Week Nine Inspiration Piece
What are you focused on?
- the soft, but rich colors
- the neutral background
- the foreign characters
- the water and beach
- the young woman’s clothing
- the layers of images
- or, maybe something else?
We can’t wait to see what YOU create this week!
Not sure how to use this cover as inspiration?
Simply leave a comment (comment link above) and we’ll do our best to assist you.
This papercrafting challenge is not just open to cards or scrapbook layouts (which have both been popular entry categories), but to ALL papercrafted creations!
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 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, before midnight (central time) on Friday, June 7, 2013.
- 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 daily 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 at the end of the week 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 Saturday, June 8th, we’ll randomly choose one participant from the previous week’s papercraft entries to receive a fun prize!
Having a hard time remembering to check our blog for each week’s inspiration piece?

What is Magazine Mondays All About?
It’s a weekly dose of papercrafting inspiration courtesy of magazines. We’ll be offering you peaks at their covers, pages, topics, typography, colors and type in hopes of inspiring you to create.
And, most importantly, it’s a chance for you to show off your papercraft creations and win fun papercrafting prizes!
PaperCrafter’s Corner (PCC) has been known for being a papercrafting information resource (store, event, retreat and kit club directories; industry news; product roundups, etc.) and provider of entertainment (product sneak peeks, challenges, giveaways, etc.).
Now we want to become your number-one source of inspiration…more specifically, papercrafting inspiration!
Magazine Mondays – How To Play Along
Each Monday we’ll post a magazine here on our blog and encourage you to use it as inspiration to create something of your very own.
You’ll create something (ANYTHING papercrafted) and add a comment on the blog post, including a link to your inspired papercraft creation, before midnight (central time) the following Friday.
We’ll “pin” each week’s magazine – as well as everyone’s creations – to our Magazine Mondays Pinterest board to provide even more inspiration for our community.
And, we’ll link to all the creations from our Facebook page so everyone following our Facebook timeline will see the creations our community has shared!
And the best part?
One lucky winner
(chosen randomly from all entries received by midnight [central time] of the Friday following the inspiration piece posting)
will receive a prize for participating!
And, the winner will get to see her/his papercraft creation on the cover
of our Magazine Mondays Pinterest board until the following challenge!
Play along and Good Luck!
