what's inside this issue
Color Workout
The color green symbolizes nature and is recognized for producing a calming and soothing effect. Ever hear of the “Green Room?” All television studios have what is known as a “green room” where guests can go to relax prior to their appearance before a show's audience. But, just like any color, green can go from being calm and sedate to neon-charged, funky, or drab…and everything in between. The pages that follow all use the color green for the major part of their layout, yet each evokes a different feeling depending on the shade of green used and the colors selected to complement.

Simple Notions
Ribbon embellishments in all forms are one of the most frequently used accents on scrapbook pages. The collection of layouts featured here all share one thing in common, yet they remain as diversified as the designers who created them. They use simple sewing notions, threads, ribbons, and ribbon look-alike papers to add drama, color, and a sense of play to express their own unique style.

We Have a New Puppy

We Have a New Puppy!
“Changes” is a column that devotes itself to all types of women’s issues ranging from daily trials, tribulations, and triumphs to illness, divorce, and loss. It is a place where you can be free to express who you are, what you think, and how you feel…a place where your voice will be heard and your images shared. Sometimes just one word spoken or one image seen can be an important turning point for someone else.

Knowing that you’re not alone can make all the difference. In every issue, we have reserved pages for all of the women who have faced life’s changes with personal courage, enduring love, and even a sense of humor…who have made a choice to somehow change their lives or to better the lives of those they love.
Scrapbooking the events in one’s life holds the powers of healing, immortalizing, and remembering both joyful and painful changes that we all experience on this all-too-brief journey in time. What a wondrous thing it is to behold, and how fortunate we are, if preserving these memories through scrapbooking helps to move us, or perhaps someone else, forward on life’s shared path.
If you would like to share your story with us, please send your submission to with the subject line entitled “Changes.”
