Paper Crafts magazine has really been working hard to revamp their website and has some fun things you may want to check out!

Their blog is updated regularly and we all take turns posting interesting tidbits about our personal lives and the industry.  Right now you can try your hand at winning an Ellison Tote for die-cut storage!

There is a new Simple Sentiments section that lists unique sentiments for cards, separated by category.  I think this is a fantastic resource that I will turn to again and again!

Paper Crafts website also hosts one of the biggest swap boards around!  Check this list out.  Members are updating it regularly!  There are so many types and themes of swaps going on, it is hard to pick just one to participate in!  And you never no when you might get to swap with  042207_tab_2
Stacy or one of the Pros!  We pop on there about once a month and host a swap of our own!  This is a card I made for a swap I just hosted called Spring Showers & Flowers where everyone utilized floral stamps and a watercoloring technique. (As a side note, I discovered that the Circle of Friendship images from SU! can fit this round tab punch from McGill by just using the center of the images in conjunction with a 5/8" circle punch.  I also stamped a "dot" from Butterfly Kisses in the center to help tie in my accent color).

Check out their free downloads as well.  They are so fun and make it quick & easy to put together something really unique!

While referencing the magazine I thought I would also link you up to the fabulous felt resource I found while creating for the PC101 column in the April/May issue of Paper Crafts magazine!  The company is called Artgirlz and they carry a plethora of unique "artsy" supplies that could be used for paper crafting and other hobbies.  Their felt is the best quality I have found because of it’s density and it comes in SO many pretty colors!

    I love papercrafts magazine and I super love all the stuff on their website…but can you tell me why the webmaster can’t fix the header on papercarfts website? I don’t like how it bumps everything down on the page and it takes up so much room and leaves that huge gap. I don’t surf on papercrafts website because of this design flaw. Someone might want to check this out because it probably annoys others too.

    Wow, thanks for all the links! I was looking at that issue of Papercrafts (my favorite magazine) this weekend and thinking I could CASE your cute card using the Green Thumb set since I don’t have any felt on hand! Love that article!
