With the recent discontinuation of Digital Scrapbooking Magazine in its print form, digiscrappers have been left to seek inspiration in print magazines on traditional scrapping or bring their dollars to e-magazines. This post will highlight the monthly e-zine options available to the digi community. Since we’re on this journey together, I’m interested in finding out from YOU which publication is totally worth the money!
