Tell Me How

As a long-time scrapper with very little time to devote to my hobby, I would love to see more instructions in your magazine-the how-tos for the great cards, embellishments and pages. I love Creating Keepsakes magazine and wish you lots of luck. Keep it going!

-Paul Ann Eutenier, San Jose, CA


Editor's note:

Thanks for the input, Paul Ann. We definitely agree with you. Look for more instructions and step-by-step instructions in future issues of CK.




Searching for Journaling Templates

I have been searching everywhere for journaling software with templates that would allow me to journal inside a heart, flower, circle, square, etc. Could you please give me any advice as to where I could find something like this?

-Lisa Guzik, Bondsville, MA


Editor's note:

Great question, Lisa. Though they may or may not be exactly what you are looking for, here are a few options that might work:

* Aviary: A free photo-editing program

* Serif's Digital Scrapbook Artist: Basic digital techniques that let you journal on a shaped path

* Simple Scrapbooks Scrapbook Boutique: Customizable templates from Simple Scrapbooks magazine

* ACDSee Photo Editor: Digital design tool with how-to lessons.

Good luck!




Just Have to Rave!

Okay, I just cannot keep silent any longer. I am absolutely thrilled (did I say absolutely thrilled!) to be receiving your magazine by subscription. I just received the latest issue, and I'm still marking ideas from the last one! I think it's so great that you make sketches available to us as well as all the fantastic ideas and tips in the magazines. I can hardly believe that I have so much information available to me from the magazine and from your website as well. Thank you so much for continuing to be superior and for giving us a great magazine-keep up the excellent work!

 -Lorna Perkins, Quispamsis, New Brunswick, Canada
