Digital Artist Magazine Special Issue


The birthday edition of the Digital Artist Magazine is finally out. Let me tell you, I know I am biased because I just joined as a contributor, but it truly is AMAZING!!! The magazine has a new look and it is jam packed with inspiration, tutorials, reviews and amazing freebies :)

Inside, I have a hybrid calendar tutorial, a digi to hybrid page, a digital page and a fun exclusive freebie calendar:

Playful Calendar Stamps

I am soooo excited to be there I am going to give away a copy of the magazine for a random commenter on this post.



***************************
I forgot to mention on my last post I treated myself to a couple of things this weekend. I bought a sewing machine (yes, for scrapping, LOL) and a new printer. You might have noticed I do NEED a printer and the one I had was giving me a hard time. It was so bad I was starting to lose my mojo because I had to worry how to print everything. The problem was that it would have a blank "band" on my high quality prints. If I printed in draft it would be all right, but as soon as I selected high quality I would get my images with bits missing. Now, with the quality of paper I use, can you imagine how annoying and frustrating that was???

Anyway, I upgraded the software and did everything I could to fix it, to no avail. Nowadays, printers are so cheap it wasn’t even worth taking it anywhere to be fixed. So we just went out and bought a new one. It is not a specialty printer, it is a multfunction, I bought an Epson RX690, it has a nice scanner and 6 ink slots (which hopefully will help me save on ink). I just printed a project here and I love the quality. The other good thing about it is that it has a 200 years guarantee on the prints. So I am glad to know I will not be here when my projects start to fade :)

P.S. Notice I have no excuse for having bought a sewing machine LOL

I have lots more to share, but once again it is way too late and I should go to bed. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a great week!

I came here hoping to see a sneak peek of what was in the magazine.... and I find that you're giving a copy away instead! What an awesome surprise. I suppose being first commentor won't help very much, but it's okay. LOL. Adorable calendar!

I hate printing, I like in fear of my printer, nothing ever comes out right! hence, I am not very hybrid-y! I too have a mini sewing machine from my paper day. I have some fear of that too, just the threading part! I love the stacked temp from the other day and I am hoping you will offer more in your store!
Oh, PS- I like cals starting with Mondays too!

Maybe I need to check out this Digital Artist Magazine. It seems to be all the buzz in the digi-community, but I've not had time to figure out why.

But, if YOU are in it, must be good stuff!

scrapbookideas said...

Wow, sounds like a great issue!! I hope I'm the lucky one :)! I love using my sewing machine for scrappy stuff, I know you will too! I also have been having major printer problems, but I'm kind of waiting until it officially dies to buy a new one, because I have a ton of ink I need to use up! -xo Jess
