Freebie Friday – CardMaps Vol. 5

CardMaps 5 Giveaway

Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

Happy Friday! I love Fridays, but I am very excited for the next few days. We have been having crazy up and down weather for weeks. We even got snow today, but tomorrow, tomorrow is supposed to be the beginning of warmer weather. Right now, it is -7 C (19 F) but by Monday, we are supposed to be at 22 C (72 F). I am SOOO ready for Spring and flowers and green grass. Are you?

Are you a card maker? I enjoy making simple cards using dies, and am slowly learning to colour with copics and watercolour markers on stamped images. I wish I had more time to practice! I do really enjoy receiving handmade cards and look forward to giving more cards that I have made myself to my family and friends.

At each Stamp & Scrapbook Expo, we host a Card Swap. These events have been a huge success over the last few years and often sell out. How fun to be able to spend time with fellow card makers and swap your cards with them too. I love that idea!

Today, I would like to tell you about CardMaps Vol. 5. This special issue magazine is from Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine and includes exclusive card sketches from PageMaps.

CardMaps Vol. 5


Loaded with inspiration and creativity, CardMaps 5 includes 88 cards, 50 exclusive CardMaps sketches, how-to photos featuring trendy, must-try techniques, step-by-step instructions for every card, free cutting files, and as always, so much more! From everyday sentiments and birthday celebrations to seasonal holidays and cards of thanks, this special issue has all of your card making endeavours covered!

    I have been a Scrapbooker for years, but last year at the Expo I got excited by card making. My cards from my classes were beautiful and I have been making them ever since. I’m excited to come back to the Expo for my third year. Please keep coming to Akron!

    I make cards for our missionaries. I am always looking for ways to make them a little quicker. These “maps” seem like a great way to do that. Hope I win!
