    I’m a real Newbie to scrapbooking! The Tips and Tricks is my favorite because I am always looking for new ways to do things!

  8. Justin says:

    I don’t actually get the magazine but I LOVE taking a peek whenever I’m in Target or the library and can find a copy to look through. There are always great and inspiring ideas. I’d say my favorite part was the cover. Loved it!

  9. Melissa says:

    I like seeing all the layouts with circles. I busted out my Creative Memories circle cutters. It was fun using them again. Glad, I have NEVER parted with them. Hope I am talking about the right issue. I love your magazine. Please, come back to the news stand at Walmart in Milton, Florida.

  13. Tami Smith says:


  14. Doris says:

  15. Kim Thomas says:

    I just loved the CK Sketches this month. The layouts were amazing. Thank you for the inspriation. Take care. :)

  16. PaulaRC says:

    I love CK! I am getting ready to go to my first CK scrap convention and I can’t wait!!! Only a couple more weeks! Yay!!!

  17. Gail B. says:

    I really liked this month’s CK Sketch. It is just right for some pictures I have.

  18. Cathy Broom says:

    I enjoy the magazine immensely and cannot wait for the next issue to arrive; however, I have noticed in recent years that the amount of content is shrinking. Is it because people are no longer submitting material for you to print? If so, put a plea out in the magazine!

  19. Lois Culler says:

    I always like putting lots of pictures on my pages and cutting them into different shapes to achieve this. The circle layouts gave me lots of ideas to use on my pages. I also enjoy the Tips and Tricks section!!!

  20. Sheri Todd says:

    Along with the tips and tricks I love the inspiration I get from the magazine

  21. Amy says:

    I like all the inspiration I get from photos from cover to cover. I especially love getting journaling ideas. Telling Stories With Pictures is pretty interesting.

  22. Tanya hall says:

    My sister laughs at me whenever she catches me reading my Creating Keepsakes Magazines. She says she has never seen anyone take so long in reading a magazine. We traveled to CO together this past winter and she kept asking me if I was still on the same page! I love the magazine, I get such wonderful creative ideas from it. The one fault I find with it; it continues to get smaller and smaller. I pulled out a few of my older ones from a few years back and they were almost twice the size of the magazine now. Please go back to the old way and send more magazine each month!

  23. Robbin says:

    I recently attended a Dr. Seuss birthday party, so I loved the quotes!

  24. Venka says:

    The techniques are what keep me coming back month after month. Either by refreshing my memory, or giving me new ideas, it continues to elevate my experience with memory keeping projects.

  25. Juliann says:

    Love it all! Tips and Tricks are my favorite.

  26. Like the sketches.

  27. Marlae Sandefur says:

    I really like the list of props even though I am past the baby stage PTL, I still loved the ideals. Plan to share the ideals with friends. I’d like to see more prop ideals for older children.

  28. Julie says:

    What is there NOT to love about CK Magazine!?? It’s the only magazine I get that I actually read every single page!! I look forward to each and every issue!!

  30. Teresa Bailey says:

    Always inspirational! Love the pictures and seeing new product in use.
