Welcome to Paper Crafts new blog! After our magazine column, we’ve named it Paper Crafts Connection because we want it to be the place you connect with friends who share in your enthusiasm for all things paper crafted! We’re excited to unveil it so early in the New Year and can’t wait for you to come along on what promises to be one very fun and creative ride!

This blog will give you a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what goes on at our creative office. We will also feature projects from our current issues, inspiration from our PC Pros, as well as fun contests and giveaways. To give you a little heads up on what’s in store, I’ve attached some fun names to a few days of the week.

Magazine Monday – I’ll post every Monday with a little insight on what it takes to put together this magazine. Perhaps I’ll follow Stace into the photo studio… Maybe I’ll take you into one of our submission judging meetings… And if you’re really good, I’ll show you pictures from our break room where we eat lunch every day and come up with our best ideas. It must have something to do with the food!

Here's a little peek at some of us making cards at Card Play. Despite popular belief, we actually DO spend 99% of our time working on the magazine.

With the Pros Wednesday – Here our four PC Pros will take turns writing a blog post for your enjoyment. They’ll show off new projects and product, share tips and techniques, and write about all things paper craft-related. Trust me, these ladies are very good at what they do!

The Fab Four: Wendy Johnson, Susan Neal, Alisa Bangerter and Kim Kesti

Freebie Friday – Why not get the weekend started a little early with some free prizes! Each week you’ll find fun quizzes, trivia games, and challenges that are all attached to fabulous giveaways! Disclaimer: You’ll have to earn your prizes, so start putting your thinking caps on!

How would you like to win this fabulous prize?! All you have to do is play along!

My goal is to make Paper Crafts Connection one of your favorite blogs that you’ll visit for inspiration and of course, connection!
