Today’s the day! Yes, our January/February 2013 issue is officially on sale today, and I’m here to celebrate this awesome magazine!
It’s always exciting to embark on a new calendar year in the magazine world, and we’ve got a few fun changes in store that we think you’ll like. Make sure to read the editor’s note by Editor-in-Chief Jennifer Schaerer to see what’s new. I’m particularly excited about the Fresh Face icon!
So, about this issue. . . . From our previous Reader Survey, you’ve told us that you struggle with masculine cards. Our answer to that is a whole feature called Valentine Cards for Guys. You’ll find 33 manly ideas to express your love. I must admit, this card by Betsy Veldman makes me giggle!
Our reader survey tells us that you make a LOT of cards for birthdays. In our Milestone Birthday feature we have cards to celebrate every birthday from 1 to 100. You can get a whole slew of ideas for whomever’s birthday is next on your list. Emily Branch made this funny and clever card for a 50th birthday. You’ll find 6 additional ideas in the digital issue! Don’t forget that if you’re a subscriber, the digital issue is yours for free. Stop by this blog post for how to sign up if you haven’t already.
Survey says – you love to stamp! Maureen Merritt’s wintry card is sweetly stamped in red and blue. It just makes me want to curl up on the couch with a good cup of coffee and a thrilling book. Her card is a part of our Cozy Winter feature. And yes, 6 more projects waiting just for you in the digital besides the thirteen that appear in the issue.
Let us know what you’re excited to see in this issue (or what you like best if you’ve already peeked at the digital issue). One commenter will win the Coffee Cozy stamp set and dies from Lil’ Inker Designs. All comments must be received by Thursday, December 13th at 5 pm MST.
We hope you love this issue as much as we do! It’s a keeper for sure!
We’re all ears when it comes to our readers,
