Behind the Scenes: August 2010

Aug cover US

Our August issue has been on newsstands for a week now, so I thought it would be fun to take you on a little behind the scenes tour of the magazine!

Do you see the card Michelle is holding in her editor’s letter photo? That was one of many letterpress cards she made after we got our hands on the QuicKutz L Letterpress. (It was so addicting and fun to play with that she got sucked in and created dozens of equally cute cards.)

After sharing our nicknames on the masthead (page 4), Michelle and Deb have taken to referring to me as B-Hop. (Although Michelle didn’t share this on the masthead, her nickname at a recent charity Wii bowling tournament was Michellvis—maybe I should start calling her that!)

Do you recognize the photo Leah Fung used on her layout on page 10? It’s a favorite of hers from when we photographed her scrap room for the August 2008 issue.

When we photographed the projects in “It’s Party Time” (page 43), the best part was having a slice of the cake once we were finished! It tasted as good as it looks. (Click here for the kid’s birthday projects.)

Two SBE staffers (our web guru, Sarah, and I) make an appearance in Snapshot Savvy, in what is possibly my favorite Snapshot Savvy ever. I love looking at all the travel photos, although they make me want to go on vacation! And Deb’s daughter Anna is in the photo next to us. (Side note: How cool is Tracie Radtke’s underwater photo that appears on that same page?)

What did you think about the August issue?
