Welcome to Freebie Friday! We just got in our copies of Holiday Cards & More, Volume 5! It may only be September, but I always look forward to this merry mix of projects that celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and New Year’s.
Hitting newsstands next Tuesday, our latest special issue is bursting with 338 creations for everyone on your list. Discover new ideas for holiday cards, gift wrap and tags, ornaments, seasonal gifts, festive home décor and much, much more!
All next week we’ll be giving you a sneak peek of our fifth volume of Holidays Cards & More. In addition to all the fun we’ll be having here, we’re partnering with creative editor Cath Edvalson and her Moxie Fab World blog. Both sites will be spotlighting projects from this issue, as well as giving away some spectacular prizes.
Next week on Paper Crafts Connection:
Magazine Monday – We have so many amazing projects in Holiday Cards & More, we just had to share a few…or 25! Join me on Monday as I spotlight three of our exclusive online bonus projects and link to where you can find supplies and instructions for all 25. And if you’re a fan of Go-to Gal Teri Anderson (and who isn’t?), you won’t want to miss this fantastic giveaway!
Tuesday – Editor Susan R. Opel will spotlight the Simple Sentiments section of Holiday Cards & More and show you where you can download them for free! She’s also giving away a sentiment stamp prize package to one lucky reader!
Groovin’ with the Go-to Gals (Wednesday) – Paper Crafts Go-to Gal Jessica Witty will talk about her very cool digital card that’s featured in the Mail-able and Mass Produce-able section of Holiday Cards & More. And you guessed it, there’s another fun giveaway up for grabs!
Thursday– Editor-in-chief Jennifer Schaerer will spotlight a digital gift from the Season’s Giftings section that can be made in minutes! And if you’re always running out of time, we’ve got a great giveaway that will not only help you organize your busy life, but free up more time to paper craft!
Freebie Friday – We’re bringing you another fun blog hop where 12 is the magic number. There’s 12 designers, 12 brand new projects and 12 Christmas collections that will go to 12 winners. Scratch that…12 Christmas collections that will go to ONE lucky winner! (That’s much more exciting, right?)
So, are you ready for a little holiday cheer in September? I know I am!
Here’s to Holiday Cards & More Week!
Cute card, huh? Leave a comment telling me your favorite thing to paper craft during the holidays. Cards, tags, gifts, etc. I’ll pick three winners to take home a copy of Holiday Cards & More, Volume 5 AND some goodies from Fancy Pants Designs’ Frosted collection – the same collection Kim used in her card above. All comments must be received by midnight on Sunday, Sept. 12.
P.P.S. In magazine land, we’re currently working on our March/April 2011 issue. (Which explains why we’re celebrating Christmas next week!) If you’re interested in submitting projects for this spring-infused issue, please click HERE for all the details. Deadline: Monday, Sept. 13 at midnight (MDT)
