When I started working in the UK magazine industry, I was incredibly lucky to land two magazine gigs at the same time...one was for a cardmaking mag (Simply Cards & Papercraft) and the other was, at the time, doing scrapbooking for a very small scrapbooking section of an existing general craft magazine (Practical Crafts). The Practical Crafts gig evolved into it's own title dedicated purely to a scrapbooking magazine, Scrapbook Magic. I was on the DT for Scrapbook Magic for about the first 4-6 months of it's existence until Practical Publishing (who publish The Scrapbook Magazine, Simply Cards & Papercraft, and Papercraft Essentials) asked me to work exclusively for their titles. I agreed just because Practical Publishing has treated me so incredibly well, but I still loved all the Scrapbook Magic team and magazine.
It was announced today to their design team, that the magazine is ceasing to publish. I am just gutted. Those girls have put their heart and soul into that magazine and it continued to get better and better. I am so sad for them all today. So for all you girls on this team ((((((((HUGE HUGS)))))))) to you. I am sooooo sorry!!! Scrapbook Magic will be missed!
