‘Scrapbook Inspirations’ (UK)

One of my personal favourites - the magazine scrapbooking enthusiasts from Britain really enjoyed - though the November 2009 edition was sadly the last of its type.

It is about to ‘morph’ into something else, almost certainly a quarterly, though we’ll find out soon enough. This is a direct quote from Rosie Waddicor and the Editorial team –

“Your favourite scrapbooking magazine will be back in 2010, in a new format. Work is already underway on the first of our quarterly specials, scheduled to go on sale in February”.
