"Who me?" it's been saying. "Whenever all y'all are ready for pinky pastels and cards full of lovey words, I'll be here waitin' on ya. Just say the word and all this inspiration I carry inside of me will spill forth in an ecstacy of pure paper crafting joy."
Whoa there, Jan/Feb. I think you're getting a little carried away with yourself. But really, can you blame her? I mean, she's got a clean new cover design, two new columns, and our six new Go-to Gals are officially in print. Not to mention all the inspiration that's waiting to spill forth in an ecstacy of pure paper crafting joy. :)
Well, wait no longer Jan/Feb! We are ready to crack your spine, dog-ear your corners, and rest our coffee mugs on your soon-to-be-worn cover while we run full-boar with arms flailing into the next room to foil the impending and quite inevitable toddler disaster!
In fact, I'm inclined to celebrate the January/February issue with a challenge! For friends, as I mentioned, there's a new column in town and she can't wait to get your crafty juices flowing!
I give you the newest member of our 2010 column line-up: Color Play!
Hosted by our moxie fab editor Susan R. Opel, Color Play is, in her own words, "a brand new column that's sure to inject your creativity with a shot of color." And guess what? You get to play, too, right here in the Moxie Fab World.
Here she is in all her inaugural glory--the January/February Color Play combo:
To inspire you further, here are three moxie fab cards created with this luscious combo exclusively for Paper Crafts magazine:Groovy Love Card by Kim Kesti, p. 28
Be Mine Card by Courtney Kelley, p. 29
