Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

I have looked at Card Maker Magazine off and on for a couple of years; then I finally subscribed.  With the print subscription, you have access to the digital format which goes back for several years.  I now am looking at the digital ones and I noticed that many of the designers have work and articles in this magazine, including Melanie Muenchinger, Carolyn King, Tami Maybury, and Gina K in past years.  Do any of you recommend other magazines in the paper crafting or card making categories?  Oh, if I left other designers off of my list, I am truly sorry; I just remembered those names.

I found StampTV by reading CardMaker mag. I like it because they usually have Gina K stamps and it gives another bit of inspiration. But I too would love to hear about any other mags pertaining to cardmaking. 

My favorite is Stamp & Scrap Arts. I cut way down on my magazine subscriptions and am trying to give all of the old issues of my other subscriptions away, but it seems no one wants them. I do have the option of giving them to the library for their annual sale, which I might do. Also the thrift store will take them. I am only getting two subscriptions now and I might cut down to one. Only magazines I kept were the ones I was published in. My kids said I should keep those, so I did. And, that is plenty to have around. These days one can get so much information from the internet.

Verna, have you thought about schools or nursing homes?  School art teachers love craft magazines because it gives them new ideas.

Nursing homes often have people who do activities with residents, and it would help them also.

Just a thought.

I've had a digital subscription to Cardmaker for over a year now. My biggest gripe is that I prefer print magazines, but it's not available here in Australia, plus, they won't ship to Australia - subscription or not.  Boo hoo.

I took out a subscription to an Australian card magazine, and I am loving it.

I subscribe to Cardmaker as well as two magazines from England that are much better than any that I  have seen here.  Also, the English magazines come with a free card making product; stamps or paper and they are very nice.

After you have been replying, my memory has been kicking in.  I have purchased the following over the last few years:

Paper Creations

Cardmaking &  Papercraft   This is a UK magazine and has a stamp or paper attached.  

Just Cards from Scott Publications.

Paper Crafts  They have gone mostly digital now, printing very few pages in their magazine.

I am into the digital world now, so I keep looking for magazines I can read on my Kindle Fire.  Scott Publications has a free app where you can purchase individual magazines from them.  It is easy to put Card Maker back issues onto it, which I have done.

I have to agree that the internet has a lot of videos and blogs.  I love the blog hops and vidoes here at Stamp TV along with the stamps and paper.  Those are not replaced with magazines.  But sometimes, it is nice to page through a magazine in print and get away from those digital devices.

Thanks for the many replies.

I totally agree there is nothing like thumbing thru an old issue and finding just what you need.

I am very disappointed that old fashioned magazines have gone digital. I do not have a smart phone or tablet, and my computer is in my bedroom, not in the basement where I craft. I love magazines, but the prices have gone crazy out of control! I love watching the videos, and the blog hops. I keep a notebook, and draw the card, as well as make notes. Pinterest is another good place to find cards and scrapbooking ideas too.

I also found StampTV from an ad in Card Maker. So happy I did, because I learned how from Gina's videos and all the the DT's, and the gallery. :)

I have them advertised on the radio for free. If I don't get response from that, then I will take to the library and the Thrift store. The Thrift store locally sells them and the money goes for those in need in the county. I think that is a good cause.

Paper Crafts is a good one. That one and Card Maker, of course! You can go to Paper Crafts site online and get more craft inspiration that's in addition to what's in the magazine. Love it!

What a great idea, Cheryl! Thanks for posting it.
