    I love CS magazine and had the honor of being published in it’s pages last year. I usually just grab a copy now and then but would love to win a free subscription! In my opinion, it’s the best on the market. Super thick and chock full of inspiration. I’ve learned and tried many new techniques after pouring through it’s pages!

  100. Nicole Nardi says:

    I’ve seen the magazines at joann’s, and have thought about putting a subscription on my wish list. Winning one would be great. Looks like there are many great ideas shared.

  101. Sandra L Hayes says:

    I would love to win a subscription to this scrapbooking magazine. I have not seen many crafting magazines in our local stores lately. I love the ideas shared on the Weekly Scrapper, also.

  102. Kim Hicks says:

    I miss not getting a scrap magazine in the mail. When magazines were more popular I would get at least one or two a month. It’s sad to to have a copy in hand to try new ideas or get motivated to scrap. I would be very happy to win a year subscription!,

  103. Monica says:

    I love stepping away from the computer to relax and look through a magazine. I am on a computer for several hours a day for work, so that is a time to “shut off” and relax.
