You know how they say “be careful what you ask for”? Well, we asked you to choose the cover of our next Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks special issue, and wow—did you ever respond! For a week, all three cover options have been neck and neck, each barely inching out the others for the chance to win. At one point or more, each option was in the lead. What a close race!

But after more than 1,200 votes, the winner is clear: option number 2!

Ta daaaah! The scrapbook layout on this cover was made by the talented Linda Barber.

In case you were wondering who the talented scrapbookers behind the other options are, they are CK Dream Team member Wendy Sue Anderson behind option #1:

And CK contributing writer Mou Saha behind option #3:

Thanks to all of you who voted. We appreciate you input and are excited to feature the cover YOU chose for this issue, which will be on sale in May.

There’s something really liberating about having choices, isn’t there? We know it’s satisfying to pick out just the right ribbon or button as a finishing touch for our pages. So we wanted you to gain that same satisfaction from choosing a part of our upcoming special issue.

The second of four Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks special issues for 2010 is almost ready to go to the printer. But . . . it’s missing a cover. And that’s where you come in. We’d like YOU to tell us which cover to put on this issue. “But Jennafer,” I can hear you saying, “how can I choose the cover when I don’t even know what the issue’s about?” Great question! Here’s a little bit of info to help you.

In case you missed it, the first Scrapbooking Tips & Tricks special issue was all about organization. This is its cover:

Adorable, right?

This second issue is all about paper. Patterned, shaped, laced, and die-cut papers, scraps, and more—this issue has hundreds of ideas for how to use this wonderful supply in unique ways for your scrapbook pages. We asked three talented scrapbookers to create layouts for this issue’s cover, and they are all so adorable—we just can’t decide on a favorite!

So we need your help. Which one should we feature on the cover? See the covers and take our poll between now and March 15, 2010, to let us know your vote.

Thanks for your help!
