Creating Keepsakes July/August 2013 - Free Digital Issue

I hope you are enjoying summer!  We certainly are.  After a tough spring, the weather has been picture perfect this week. 
I am excited to tell you that Creating Keepsakes July/August 2013 issue has been officially released and I am even more excited about this issue for several reasons.  First of all, it is loaded with great ideas and layouts to inspire your summer memory keeping.  When I get an issue, I cannot wait to go through it and study the layouts.  I left this issue feeling very inspired and as a scrapbooker, it doesn't get any better than that.
The second reason that I am super excited about this issue is because of what you see below!

Yahoo!  This issue contains the first of hopefully many digital scrapbooking inserts.  When I first started digital scrapbooking, Creating Keepsakes had just started a new digital scrapbooking magazine and my beloved friend Pattie Knox was one of the contributing editors.  I soaked up everything that I could in that magazine and it inspired me to try new techniques and to see new possibilities for my photos and memory-keeping.  I was very sad when the decision was made to cease publication of that magazine.  I have all of the issues and STILL will refer to them from time to time.

I heard earlier in the year, they would have a digital scrapbooking insert and was overjoyed.  When I went out to Salt Lake City in April, I learned that they REALLY wanted to reach out to the digital scrapbooking community, my heart was pounding.  I was so excited.  Well, this is the start of hopefully a whole lot more.     Creating Keepsakes is very excited about this and I hope you are too.  In fact, they are so excited that they are giving away the digital edition of this issue for free to each of you.  You need to go here for your free issue.

I hope you enjoy it!
