Magazine Life


A labelling error occured in the Spring issue of Canadian Scrapbooker magazine – in the Passport to Creativity section.  Not just on one of the pages – but perfectly incorrect – on all three!  I probably could not have done it that way had I planned it! These three wonderful ladies from Manitoba Lisa Tottle Amber Dutka and Cathy Schellenberg …were kind enough to let us into their scrapbooking worlds – and we messed it up!  The layouts do not belong with the artists.  We are so very very sorry! Please take a minute to visit our website where we have posted an apology and where the layout credits are given to their rightful artists. Once again Lisa, Amber and Cathy – we are very sorry Kind Regards

We are saying good-bye to Leica Forrest here at Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine. Leica’s contributions to our magazine over the last few years have been tremendous – both in terms of her designs, her energy and her support.  All of us here at Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine wish her so much success in her future endeavours. From the bottom of our hearts  – best wishes to you Leica Lots of Love

My Dad is also a scrapbooker at heart!  This year he helped my mom cut out all the poinsettias and adhered them to the fronts of all the cards! My Mom did so much on these cards and I never took one single picture!!!!!!!!!!!  Sorry Mom!
