I have seen in a few places (swaps and such) where someone asks someone else if they would like slightly used magazines. What do you use them for?

If they're scrapbook magazines, then for layout ideas, inspiration, etc. i just got 46 back issues from *bay for $10. i only had 4 of the issues already. it was Creating Keepsakes, Memory Makers, Simple Scrapbooks, Scrapbooks, etc, and scrapbooking & beyond.

Old magazines are on our class supply list for the SmashBook class. They said we would look through them to cut out things we like, words or phrases, titles, etc. It could be food, fashion, neat scraprooms, vacation, etc.

Yeah, I have three scrapbook magazines I got from a co-worker - they're several years old and they're the only ones I own, but they're nice to look through for ideas.

I don't know of very many. a few lately have stopped production.

creating Keepsakes.....they have a website with a subscription link. These are also available in the magazine section at walmart and barnes & noble.

memory Makers and papercrafting are also available.

I've kept all my sb mags and I still go through the older ones and get ideas. I think lately I've gotten more inspiration from looking at the mags that are several years old than I have from looking at the newest mags...probably because all the latest stuff I've seen on here already. The old mags gives me inspiration for using new stuff in a different way or for pulling out my old supplies and using them, "because no one else is using those supplies", so they look new and fresh.

I was in Hobby Lobby this afternoon, they have a stand by the cashiers with all sorts of magazines for different crafts, there were 2 or 3 different ones dedicated to scrapbooking. Unfortunately I can't remember the names of them. I think one of them was called "Scrapbooking and More" or something like that.
I have several shelves in my scrap room closet filled with scrapping and craft magazines, I go to them whenever I need inspiration.

If they're scrapbook magazines, then like others said, for inspiration and such.

If they're not, then I use the images sometimes in my art journals to make collage pieces.

Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooking and Beyond are two titles, then there are some cardmaking publications as well, like Papercrafters. Unforunately, the best, in my opinion, was a BH&G mag called Scrapbooks, Etc, and it is now defunct. Boo hoo.

Joann's sells a few scrapbook magazines including several published in Europe. Great for inspiration and the European ones come the way they sell most magazines there - with supplies featured in the mag.

Nothing beats looking through an old magazine and going ' oooh I've got that stuff ' LOL. It is always good to look at older work and use up your stash. : ) angela

Is your SmashBook class online? If so, I would love to learn more about it. Thank you!

Ditto!! GREAT card making ideas!!
Also-- if you go to large bookstores with a magazine section, they often have a good selection.
Unless you're getting a subscription, they can be quite pricey, though.
