Wow cool christmas candy. I didn't know SU had these books out. I really love the SU catalog for stamping ideas and also Paper Crafts Magazine. I am always amazed at peoples talents. Really love reading your blog on most mornings too. You show some of the best stuff. Happy Holidays

Wow !!! Great Candy, sweetie !!! My favourite stamping magazine is "Cards"...tons of ideas and I love the shape of it....it's smaller and feels more like a book than magazine. Creativity oozes out of this magazine and I use it for ideas all the time !!!

Love ya...
Me (Corinne :)

wow Im number 2 !!I like tye paper Crafts magazine, I love the samples and I really like the sentiments page in the back!

I love paper crafts, great samples and stuff I can actually do!

I love PaperCrafts magazine. they have such great samples and good directions!

I really haven't bought any mags in so long that I don't know what is out there. I would love a mag filled with SU ideas. I wonder why there isn't one published. I do hope to check in tomorrow maybe. If I don't get back at you, Dawn, Merry Christmas and I wish for you to have the very best 2008!

I am a new stamper so I have only looked at a few and don't remember which is which. I CAN tell you I visit splitcoast stampers several times to get ideas and inspiration, as well as awesome blogs like yours! I like it because you can see ideas from beginners and experts and everything in between!

Golly, have I been living under a rock? I never knew this SU book of ideas existed! how fabulous that book must be! Thanks for offering one for a prize. My favorite magazine WAS the rubber stamper, but it's now been changed to Crafts n Things. TFS such wonderful prizes with your readers in the spirit of Christmas :) You go girl!!

Actually, I don't have a favorite, except for The Stampin' Up catalogs. I've never really looked at anything else up to this point. I did buy a subscription thru my son's magazine fundraiser to try Paper Crafts, but it hasn't started yet so I don't know if I'll even like it.

I really enjoy RubberStamp Madness. It has lots of do-able projects and articles on how techniques were done. It goes into more detail than many magazines and there are also articles on organizing supplies, how to use 1 design multiple ways, etc. Really a informative magazine! Would love to win that SU book!

Good Morning Dawn! My favorite craft magazine would have to be Card Maker. It has a lot of sample, especially of Stampin' Up! and they have great ideas. Sorry, I haven't commented in awhile, I have been really busy. Thank you for the chance of some great candy and congrats on your mile stone. Merry Christamas and a Happy New Year to you and your family. Take care and God Bless!

My favorite magazine right now is Just Cards, because... well... it's just cards. (clever name for that magazine!) I like how it's just pic after pic of cards. I did like Rubber Stamper a lot but it's gone now. :(

O I haven't seen this book in a long time...and regretted I never bought it. But the real prize is your Cd of samples!! ;)
My fav magazie is probably the Rubberstamper.
Thanks so much for all your sharing this last week!!!
Happy Holidays to you and yours!!!!!!!!!

My favorite magazine is probably Creating Keepsakes. It helps jump start me when I'm trying to scrap and am "stuck". I get layout ideas from it.

Merry Christmas, Dawn, Jesse, and Rich. I KNOW it will be a wonderful one!

Merry Christmas!! Thanks for such a fun filled 5 days of RAK! You ROCK BLOGETTE! WOW...this lucky stamper will be lost in their stamp room with this sweet giveaway just stamping away with all this inspiration...and I hope it's ME ME ME! I love so many magszines that have anything to do with stamping, but I tend to have more Paper Craft. I like the inspiring samples and they show an idea 2 or 3 different ways. The sentiments are a nice touch in the back too.
Thanks for a chance.

Good Morning Girl!
Hope all is going well for you!
I don't really read magazines often. My SS that I get mailed...lol. Sometimes I buy the Paper Crafts Magazine. Checking your blog daily for ideas is WAY better than paying for a magazine...LOL!!!
Have a FAB day!

My favorite magazine was The Rubber Stamper until it was sold. I also like Scrap & Stamp Arts. I used to purchase every stamping magazine but lately I am much more picky. My reason for getting magazines is to get ideas for cards. I taught stamping classes up until about 6 months ago.

I love Take Ten. There are not lots of ads, just pages and pages of samples! They are all quick to create, too. I'm only sad that it only comes out quarterly! Thanks for this fun run for blog candy :) Happy holidays to you and yours.

Unfortunaletly I don't subscribe to any stamping magazines. What is probalbly why I enjoy your blog so much everyday!

I love Paper Crafts, they have such a great assortment of projects and they keep it fresh.

WooHoo... my favorite mag is PaperCrafts! It is always full of the latest and greatest ideas and great samples and projects!

What a great week reading all your posts and seeing the goodies you are giving away. Love your blog and in fact I check it out every morning as soon as I fire up my puter. I love that you are so diligent in updating everyday. It is a little suprise every morning to see what you are going to share with all of us.
My favorite magazine was Rubber Stamper. So sad that they were boughtby Crafts and Things. (Broken Hearted) I originally started reading it about five years ago because I loved the comentary at the end (the authors daughters name is Dayna) Then that was taken out and I held onto the promise that it would be replaced with new and exciting things.....no such luck.
Now I am off on my quest to find my next favorite stamping magazine. I will be sure to see what every one else is reading these days.

Oo, Oo, Ooooo this looks so cool! I'm newer to Stampin Up!, so I've never heard of this. But, my favorite stampin' mag is SU!'s own Stampin' Success for all of the wonderful samples they provide. And, because I'm a homeschool mom I don't actually get out to craft stores much to go looking at other magazines (nor do I have a whole lot of extra time for it). So, this book really caught my eye!
Merry Christmas, Dawn!

I like all the crafting magazines out there but my favorite is...the SU! Catalog! Even after having it for six months I could look through it again and again and find something new! :o)

I would have to say Paper crafts would be the one I buy at the store for their inspiration. I go to all my SU catalogs for the majority of my inspiration & now your wonderful blog for even more creativity!! Thank you & have a very Merry Christmas!

Paper Crafts is my favorite stamping magazine...simply because it has so many ideas. I have also enjoyed the new products that are featured in it.
(I have to agree that the SU catalog is what I turn to first though when I want an idea...mine is tattered and WELL used.)

I like Paper Crafts. You can take alot of their ideas and use stampin up supplies, tools etc. I wish that Split Coast Stampers would put out a magazine. That would be the best. Merry Christmas to everyone.

I love Papercrafts because not only do they have cards but altered items too!

What great blog candy. Thanks for sharing. I only buy a few magazines a year. The last one I bought was Cards. It had a lot of SU samples. Merry Christmas. Mary

I don't buy that many magazines. I usually use my SU catalog and the internet for most of my ideas. I go to splitcoast and many different blogs. Have a Merry Christmas!!!

I don't really read any other craft magazines besides SU cattys! I just don't have the time for it. I have a few paper craft magazines that my sister gave to me that I like. I just check out SCS and your blog when I'm looking for inspiration or something cute to do for a class! Happy Holidays!

I love Paper Crafts magazine. They have such great projects and easy to follow instructions. The mag. is great but my favorite source for ideas is SCS!!


Well my favorit magazine would be Paper Crafts and Scapbooks ect.tey both have help me get ideas to try.but dawn your the number one.Because you have helped me with my fisrt wedding and baby albums you rock thanks again and happy hoildays...

Hi Dawn, I've loved every day of your give-aways..the questions were so much fun and reading everyone's answers was great..I got my first copy of Paper crafts in a blog candy and I totally love it.
I would say it is the best..


Oh without a doubt my favorite magazine is PaperCrafts! Why? Because of the all around cool ideas I get from it! Blessings! and Thank you so much for the totally fun blog candies you offer! Merry Christmas!

As of 10 minutes ago, when the UPS man rang the bell, my new FAVORITE is the 2008 SU Spring/Summer.
I don't love the regular magazines so much because I need more SU!!!!! I wish SU would go into the magazine publishing, who knows, maybe someday.

SU is only just beginning to make its way across the pond to the UK so I'm not familiar with its products.
I enjoyed Stampington's Inspirations, and am sad that its publication has been reduced to once a year. I love the variety they achieve with a limited range of stamps.
Thanks for this offer.

Hi Dawn, my favorite magazine is PaperCrafts. The samples are easy for recreate and I like that they often introduce new products. Love your blog. Happy Holidays!

I have many favorites since I get ideas from everywhere. Paper Crafts has simplified ideas, Creating Keepsakes keeps me up to date on tools and merchandise with great scrapbook layouts..and so does Cherish and Imagine from CTMH even though they are books and not mags..they have great directions for layouts.

Hi Dawn. I would have to say Papercrafts as it is so diiferent to what we get in the UK. I really like their style of publishing and the card ideas, very easy to follow and very inspirational - with lots of stamping! I also think their website is great as there are lots of cardmaking projects online and free downloads (handy as I can't get the mag very often) and also I have been able to order their extra publications like 'Joy of Cardmaking' direct from Amazon. It's also great that they feature so many projects with Stampin' Up! stamps and products in them.

I haven't really ventured into the stamping magazines so my favorite "magazine" for inspiration is the Stampin' Up catalog. I get so many ideas from browsing through it and am anxiously awaiting the new one. Thank you, Dawn, for all of your creative ideas and inspiration. I love reading your blog and it makes my day:)

Wow, time sure does fly by, doesn't it? Right now my fav is the SU catty, I luv looking at the stamps that I would luv to have & I like get some ideas for cards as well. I have a scrapbook mag that I luv called Lasting Moments from CM, but since I'm still new to stamping, I have to say that I have not looked at a card magazine...yet!!! I'll have to go out & buy one soon. Thanks Dawn for all your help through out the year.

There is only one true stamp magazine left and that is Rubberstampmadness. It was one of the two I bought first day I found them. I just couldnt choose between it and Rubber Stamper. I used to get all the stamp mags, but its the only one left that doesnt incorporate other crafts.

wow, I don't read any stamping magazines, if I need inspiration I look at blogs or go onto split coast stampers. I find I can get so much more inspiration this way then though a magazine

My favorite magazine has to be PaperCraft. There is ALWAYS plenty of ideas to C.A.S.E. but more importantly.....LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing someone I know with their cards published-See them most in this magazine....and it makes my heart SMILE when I know the person. Thanks Dawn for this FABULOUS Blog Candy-I'm Keeping My Fingers DOUBLE Crossed tonight. Kadie

My favorite magazine has to be Paper Crafts. They have quick and easy card ideas as well as, more involved card ideas (for the people who really appreciate the hard work involved). The also have great ideas on altering items with suggestions on ways to use them. I love the magazine so much that I gave gift subscriptions to my sisters, (3 of them) that also create cards. It's a must have for card making enthusiasts.

Paper Crafts. I like the easy cards that they do! Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Dawn!!
OK, first off, since I never seem to leave you messages, thans for all the inspiration you share with all of us!! I know *I* Appreciate it - & CASE you often!! LOL! OK, fave stampin magazine to read - well it WAS the Rubberstamer, now I am searching for a new one. I LOVED all the samples, the techniques shared, etc...but after getting my first copy of their new magazine Crafts & Things, I will have to find my inspiration elsewhere. :( Maybe someone else's fave mag will inspire me! But I have to agree with one of the posts - blog inspiration is the BEST!!
(((hugs))) Tessa

oh my gosh!!! what an awesome prize! my favorite stampin' magazine is paper crafts. i know it isn't totally stamping but i get a lot of great ideas in there!

regina cornelius

My favorite magazine has to be Paper Craft. They have ideas for someone that likes to do simple cards or something alittle more difficult.
I just love your blog, I have to check it out everyday. Your doing a great job!
