Getting Published in a Scrapbooking Magazine

Scrapbooking is a beautiful hobby.  It is a way to preserve memories, precious moments and personal times. However scrapbooking is an ever growing and changing industry that like any art form is constantly evolving.  Scrapbookers want to learn new techniques. Often we turn to magazines for new ideas. Magazines often look for scrapbookers to submit photos or articles to there magazine so other scrapbookers can learn from them.  It is great fun to be published in a magazine, however like with any publisher, there are guidelines that you must follow in order to make your work more favorable or printable. You have to remember that a magazine wants to be reader friendly. The following interview by Studio Calico with Megan Hoeppner of Creating Keepsakes is excellent for showing you what a magazine looks for when looking at potential artwork.
Studio Calico: Q and A with Megan Hoeppner!: "I'm interrupting the regularly scheduled blog posts to share a bit from this month's guest designer and Creating Keepsakes editor, Ms. Mega..."
So give it a try, but most importantly remember to have fun! Always remember the real reason that you started scrapbooking!
