Submission call for January issue of CREATE

Scrapbook Generation’s CREATE is thrilled to announce its first-ever call for readers gallery submissions. CREATE is a free digital download magazine that will launch in January in conjunction with SG’s expanded online store.

CREATE will center around sketches and how to use them to best advantage, but will also feature other paper-crafting topics and articles. Best of all, we'll be bringing you inspiration from the top manufacturer's design teams every month as the team members show what they can do with the very latest paper collections and SG sketches. The first issue is projected to contain 120-150 pages!

Starting with the March 2014 issue, readers gallery submissions will be based on the four sketches featured in the magazine. January’s sketches will be used for the March gallery, February’s for the April gallery, and so on.

For the first two magazines, we’ve chosen other SG sketches to be used, and today, we’re sharing the sketches for the January 2014 readers gallery. Choices are single-page layout, double-page layout, or greeting card. All three sketches were designed by Allison Davis, well-known for her inspiring style, and her ability to shine the spotlight on photos and journaling.

How to submit for the January 2014 issue of CREATE:
• Submissions should be sent to

• Submissions must be based on one of the three sketches above.
• An individual may submit more than one project, but each project must be sent in a separate email.
• All files should be under 1MB.
• Include your name and address.
• If your submission is chosen for publication, we will contact you with information about sending a second photo meeting more specific requirements, plus a supply list.
• The call for the January 2014 issue ends November 20, 2013. 

We're so excited to see how your style merges with SG sketches!

I'm really looking forward to a new scrapbooking magazine! And 120-150 pages worth that I can read on my iPad is awesome!

Even though I'm not really a digital reader, I'll be stealing my hubby's tablet for this one! My favorite sketches every month? Woo-hoo!
I have 2 submissions ready to send in, and I'm really thinking about making more of that card sketch - it's so much fun!
