I was contacted by the publishers of Stampers' Sampler-Take Ten to write a review of their magazine. I gladly said yes. It has been years since I've picked up a copy and enjoyed perusing through the pages. It was so fun to see all of the familiar names and see their gorgeous work. And I am in awe of people who can acutually make a card in 10 minutes or under! Because as we all know....that would not be me! LOL!
I liked how the magazine was organized. Two pages shared a common color theme or technique. I also liked the many ways to use the same stamp. The style of stamping ranged from CAS to artsy vintage. My favorite artist from this issue was Caroline Stuart. She has such a great sense of style and I loved her work! And lastly, the back pages were filled with close ups of the techniques the stampers had used. It was a cool way to draw attention to something I probably had missed in the beginning pages.
Was there anything I didn't like about the magazine? Not really. As with any magazine there might have been projects I wasn't over the moon about, but I still feel like I was able to pick up a technique or sketch I didn't have before.
