With the world economy the way it is, many of us have resolved to save more money or, inversely, spend less money as part of our new year’s resolutions. But many of us also have a goal to scrap more this year. Think these two worthy goals can’t coexist on your new year’s resolutions list? They can! And happily too. Let Creating Keepsakes show you how you can create more without spending more: just check out two of the great articles in our January 2010 issue.

Fast, Frugal & Fabulous

“Fast, Frugal & Fabulous” will help you save both time and money while still creating great pages. Contributing designers Allison Davis and Brigid Gonzalez show us two examples.

Make the Most of Leftovers

Once you’ve stored up some fast and frugal ideas from that article, for additional fabulous ideas turn to one of our new columns for 2010: “Make the Most of Leftovers.” In this column, you’ll learn how to make the most of your leftover scrapbooking supplies. Every month, we’ll feature a different contributor using a variety of products in new, surprising ways. In the January issue, Suzy Plantamura shows you how to use leftover paper, sticker negatives, and pages from your journal to add surprising and fun details to your layouts—all without spending a cent.

So if you’re one of the many scrapbookers who want to save money and still create more layouts than ever this year, let CK help you out! We hope you enjoy our January issue and all the new columns it contains.

If you have a great use for your leftover supplies, we’d love to hear from you. Shoot us an e-mail at editorial@creatingkeepsakes.com, and put “Make the Most of Leftovers” in the subject line.

Best wishes for a fabulous and frugal new year!
