Let's get ready to celebrate with a couple of awesome magazines as we kick off the holiday card-making season the world over TODAY, Saturday, Oct. 4!
Now in its third year, World Card Making Day is a day to connect with fellow card makers around the globe and to celebrate the creativity and joy of this craft! Hobbyists, beginning card makers, manufacturers of card-making products, retailers, and educators, are all making plans to share the excitement of World Card Making Day with workshops, online galleries, parties, contests, sales, and other special events.
To celebrate with Paper Crafts magazine, you can visit www.worldcardmakingday.com for ideas and unique ways to celebrate this holiday, including:
o Creating your own handmade cards from the dozens of sponsored ideas in the Inspiration Avenue section
o Sharing your unique designs with the world in the Creation Corner Gallery
o Finding and visiting an Official World Card Making Day Retailer for classes and activities that will help you connect with other fellow card makers
o Planning your own fun activities with friends and family with ideas from the Celebrate section
Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine is also hosting a fun day of cardmaking celebration over on their blog where they are featuring cards and how-tos by a variety of artists! There are ideas galore to get you started handcrafting your cards. And the best part? All the cards created for their event will be donated to their “bring a smile to a child” campaign (for more information on this campaign, please visit their website at www.scrapbookandcards.com).
SO of course I have an awesome giveaway planned for today! If you create a card today (by midnight eastern time!), post it in any online gallery and link me up here, you'll be entered to win the latest issue from each of these magazines - the fall issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today and the special issue Cards, Gifts, & More from PaperCrafts. Talk about some serious inspiration!
And to get you started, I'll volunteer off my own card that I created for Scrapbook & Cards Today's campaign - an Urban Prairie Birthday Card! HAPPY CREATING!
