Full of more than 350 scrapbook tips, techniques and ideas, the expanded (32 more pages!) Top Ten issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine is now available on newsstands. Let’s take an insider’s look at this inspiring new issue!
Insider Info #1: Divisible by Ten
All six featured articles and nearly all eleven columns in this issue have ten tips or ideas in them for your scrapbooking inspiration and instruction. Several favorite columns, including CK Sketches and Tips & Tricks, have been expanded to make sure they fit ten ideas in each!
One feature article, “Terrific Tips from 10 Fresh Faces”, showcases projects from ten talented, never-before-published scrapbookers with scrapliftable tips for each. Several of these inspiring projects were found from fans sharing their layouts on our Facebook page, including this one from Kathleen Skou.

These adorable little monsters were created by two talented contributors!
