This gorgeous layout by Lisa Swift offered everything we could
hope for as our September cover. Lisa mixed the bright
colors of summer with just a hint of fall brown to allow her
hues to transition us to the new season. She capture back
to school with a bold joy that just warmed our hearts and had us
ready to shop for new backpacks. Lisa will receive a gift
of supplies from our generous sponsors. We cannot wait to
see what Lisa creates next!
You, too, might see your
creation 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! Each month, the cover winner receives a prize package from our sponsors filled with yummy supplies.
Take a second look at our front cover.
