  207. I read friends’ issues for a year or so, then my husband surprsed me with a subscription of my own about a year ago. :-) I really look forward to each issue! I have let all my other magazines expire.

  208. I have been a fan of SBE for 4+ years. It was the first magazine that I purchased when I started scrapbooking and needed ideas and instruction. If I am ever stuck for an idea, I just flip through a few of the back issues. Love this magazine!

  209. I have loved SBE for years, I’ve only subscribed for 1 1/2 years though. Keep the fun ideas and AWESOME pages coming!

  210. Over 3 years. It was the first scrapping magazine I ever picked up and it is still my favorite!

  211. I have been a subscriber for over a year but have loved it for a long time: ) Thanks for all the ideas…currently working on the Valentine’s Day candy cards for my daughter’s 1st grade class. She can’t wait for her Valentine’s Day Party. She is so excited to take her lollipop Valentines to school: )

  212. 2-3 years? At this point it is the only one I will re-up with. Getting one by “default” but doesn’t really do it for me.

  213. I’ve been reading for probably 5 years and subscribing for 2 now… Yours is the only one I still read!

  214. Look at my back issues. The oldest is Oct. 03!

  215. A reader for 5 years or so and brand new subscriber! Can’t wait for all the new inspiration in my mailbox!

  216. I’ve been reading and loving your magazine for close to 2-1/2 years now,around the time I started seriously scrapbooking.I also love the weekly e-newsletter and facebook group;you guys make us feel like family!

  217. Brand new subscriber…just started scrapbooking and love your magazine !!! The ideas are very helpful.
