Scrap 365 Magazine {UK} June/July Issue & Sneak Peek!

Have you seen or heard of Scrap 365 magazine?

It is a brilliant English scrapbooking magazine that employs a large
& diverse international team & I am one of them!  Lucky me I know!!

It is a dream come true & our editor, Ali Parris, is one heck of a gal
& really rocks her job!  Times are tough for print mags & it can get
disheartening when so many people are spoilt by too much free
 information being so readily available online so to keep on thriving 

You can buy the issue for under 5 quid {no GBP key on my laptop!}
RIGHT HERE or better still subscribe for a year & save 5 pounds!
SUBSCRIPTIONS PAGE HERE.  Issues can be shipped anywhere
in the world & you can get a price estimate for your location.

The June/July issue has a loose "recyle/upcycle" theme going on & my contribution
to the issue is an article on how to create using office/stationery/household supplies.

My page cost me next to nothing to create.  
This is important for internationals as not all of us 
are blessed with access to cheap crafting supplies.

  Many of us in the world have to buy imported product that has had shipping costs 
& duties added on to it & hence it has become up to SIX times the actual cost! 

And no discounts,coupon codes or Black Friday sales around here!!  
Product can be YEARS old & still selling at top premium price!

Of course we all love our new stash, even if it costs more for "internationals"
{I ain't ever giving up my addiction to special brands!} but at the same
time there are things you can do to stretch your dollars or your rands
& I lay them all out in this article!

I love a REAL magazine & take it with me in the car for while I am waiting
for kids at soccer practice in the evenings etc & love having some bed-time
reading material too. 

There are some places where only the REAL THING will do!!

Follow the Scrap 365 BLOG to get a taster of the talented team!
Whatever your style Scrap365 is INSPIRATION OVERLOAD!!
Go get your weekend reading now :)

Loved your layout in the mag Helen, it's brilliant what you can do without using any actual scrapping stash as such. I'm in this one as well, very exciting. I like to read mine in the bath first! Then it sits next to me on my workdesk for a whole month's worth of inspiration :o)

Helen you are an international celebrity, but nice to see still proudly South African. You are so right, the printed word is still the best for the senses.
