The gold and the glitz of this layout caught our attention
immediately. Aymee layered a gorgeous photo over a variety
of textures. The soft feather with the rough cardboard and
the scratchy lace set off by gorgeous papers and a handmade
flower. Aymee's attention to detail inspires us to start
the new year off scrapping!
You, too, might see your layout or card on the cover, but you have to submit first! All items submitted to article calls are looked at, and the top eye-catchers are chosen by our Editors and put in a voting poll for our crew to select the cover winner. So get those layouts, cards and projects in everyone!
Take a second look at our front cover.
