New Look and New Calls!

Scrapbook News and Review Magazine has a new look, and it's awesome! Join now for the inspiration of a lifetime!
 
 Submit your artwork for publication in Scrapbook News and Review.  The March Magazine calls are available now.

Scrapbooking
Deadline: February 26, 2012
Free for All (Formerly Known as Strut Your Stuff)
In each issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine, we spotlight scrapbook layouts of any size, style and genre with any theme you prefer. Please note that this call is for paper scrapbookers only. The digital sign-up is below in the digital calls area.

Inspiration:


Two-Page Layouts
For this call, we're looking for two-page layouts only. They can be of any theme or topic, but submissions cannot be one pagers.
Easter
From darling divas dressing up to religious ceremonies, Easter is a day to be celebrated with faith and fun.
Growth/Change/Missed Opportunities
We all have them. Those moments that touched us for the better, made us grow and caused changes. Or maybe there was a time that you look back on now as a missed opportunity. Even if you don't have a photograph, scrap the moment and share it with us.
My Wish For You
Do you have something meaningful you would like to say to or share with someone special? Get it out on a layout and let your heart express your true wish for them.
Monthly Series:


All About Me: Things I Love
Things I Love:  Over the course of 2012, we'll be featuring a monthly series called All About Me that will help you develop an album that focuses mainly on you and your life and your feelings and anything else you want to share.
For March, we're looking for pages that are centered on "The Things I Love" but this does NOT have to be the title. This is the subject only.
Color of the Month: Green
How will you use green on your page? Projects can be of any theme or subject but you must use at least 80% of the "Color of the Month" color(s). So think green with a couple other colors to balance it out.
KISS - Keep It Simple, Sweetheart
We're on the hunt for Clean and Simple or Modern and Graphic pages. Layouts that rely more on the subject or photo rather than a lot of embellishments or dressing up the page.
One Word Title: Fly
Please note that the title must only be one word (the word of the month) and cannot have more than that word, but you can use other words for a sub-title.
Recipe Challenge (Not Food Related)
We're excited to roll out this new call for 2012 and it's sure to be a lot of fun! Please submit layouts that follow this recipe:
  • A pinch of paint
  • A dash of dry embossing
  • 1 Felt Accent
  • 1 Banner
  • 2 Photo Corners
  • 3 Patterned Papers


Scrap Your Stash: Buttons
For this call, please only submit layouts that feature buttons and handmade embellishments made from buttons on them – nothing else will be accepted for publication.
Sketch of the Month
The following sketch is up for interpretation as you see fit. You can create with it as-is, use bits and pieces or turn it on its ear to create a fun layout that is still true to the sketch. All submissions must be layouts.

Cards and Stamping
Deadline: February 26, 2012  

Inspiration

Border Punches
There is such a variety of border designs out there and whether punched directly or switched up to make a different pattern or embellishment, we want to see how you use them on your cards.
Favorite Fairy Tale/Nursery Rhyme
Cute and cuddly or freaky and funky, fairy tales lend a certain magic to any type of card. Nursery rhymes, with all their whimsical charm, are welcome, too.
Rainy Day/Weather
It's not quite the rainy season, but before we're ankle deep in mud puddles, let's have some fun with rainy day and weather elements. They can be traditional paper scrapbooking supplies or stamped images.
Found Objects/Trash to Treasure
 Think of it as an exciting treasure hunt! What trash can you rescue from your home to make into treasure? Such items include food packaging, junk mail, old clothes, unloved toys, and so much more!
Product: Crate Paper
Readers have asked that we feature a company each month as it's a great way to show a variety of uses for popular lines or items that we have squirreled away but aren't quite sure what to do with. This month, the company in the spotlight is Crate Paper and you can use any collection or item from this amazing brand that you like.
 Sketch of the Month
The following sketch is up for interpretation as you see fit. You can create with it as-is, use bits and pieces or turn it on its ear to create a fun layout that is still true to the sketch. All submissions must be cards.

Technique of the Month: Paint
Do you love to add paint to your cards? No matter if it's a pinch of paint or a whole heaping of it, we can't wait to see your creations!
Digital Scrapbooking
Deadline: February 26, 2012  

Free for All (Formerly Known as Strut Your Stuff)
In each issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine, we spotlight scrapbook layouts of any size, style and genre with any theme you prefer. Please note that this call is for digital scrapbookers only. The paper sign-up is below in the paper scrapbooking calls above.
Brushes
Brushes are one of the fabulous tools available to digital scrapbookers. Show us how you rock out digital brushes.
Project 365/Project Life
Whether it's a photo-a-day, documenting each week, or creating one layout a month for the year, Project 365/Project Life is all about capturing everyday life. No matter what your approach, we want to see your digital or hybrid pages.
Quick Page Base
Use a digital quick page as a base for your layout and show us how you make it your own!
Style: Pretty/Shabby Chic
Soft and feminine, with lots of distressing, layers and embellishments characterize the pretty/shabby chic style. Send us your digital layouts featuring this style.
Mixed Media
Deadline: February 26, 2012   

Please Note:

All mixed media calls are for artists of all styles and categories including traditional paper, hybrid or digital.
Artist Trading Cards: Alice in Wonderland
There's something so visually appealing about Asian colors schemes such as red, black and gold, or more vivid colors schemes such as red, pink, orange and aqua. For this call, we're looking for ATCs that feature Asian images, embellishments and/or colors schemes that lend themselves well to the Asian theme.

Artist Trading Cards: Free for All
Grab your 15 minutes of fame and send in ATCs featuring any theme, style or color scheme.
Inchies: Clocks/Time
Time seems to be a trendy topic lately and there is a plethora of embellishments, stamps, die cuts and papers out there that sport our theory. So dress up your inchies with clocks and other time related pieces or go for a time theme, such as a Moment in Time, and send them in to us.

Tags: Everyday Things
This call can be interpreted in many but mostly, we're looking for tags that feature everyday things from your life. Things can be inconsequential or exceptionally meaningful but give us a small snapshot into the everyday things that are a part of your world.
