Scrapbooks, Etc. Project Call

Scrapbooks, etc. has a new column, and we’re searching for submissions. The column will be called “Etc.” and it is all about using your scrapbook supplies for home d├ęcor and gift ideas…projects other than scrapbook pages. As one of our editors (the fabulous Michelle Rubin) said, “This is about getting your supplies off the page and using them in new ways.”

If you have the April 2006 issue of Scrapbooks, etc, this column will be very similar to the ideas featured in our “Deck the Walls” column…wall art, memo boards, keepsake boxes, etc. (hence the name of the column!). We’d love to see your most creative and unique ideas!

Send photos of your projects to us at, and put “Etc.” in the subject line to ensure your samples make it to the right people. Email submissions must be 500k or less. We will have an ongoing need for this type of project, so please send them at any time.

This column will first appear in the August/September issue. If you’d like more information or would just like to keep up-to-date with Scrapbooks, etc. you can always check out our blog at:
