(Editor’s note: Yowza—I’m clearly having difficulties with my photos posting correctly. I’m trying to fix this—thanks for your patience!)

It was the dead of winter when we were working on this warm and sunny June issue! In fact, the SBE crew got stuck in the Great 2011 Chicago Blizzard on our way home from the Summer CHA show.

But thanks, fully, we made it back to finish the issue! And we got a few of our favorite picks from the show into the issue, including the SMash Book from K&Company. Contributing Editor Leah Fung and I got our photo taken in the K&Co booth:


Everyone coveted the SmashBook we featured in the Show & Tell column, but, sadly, we had to send it back!They also have fun accessories we werne’t able to show in teh magazine, including some decorative tape. this was one of my faves:


We’re also featuring the Pink Paislee Daily Junque chalkboard stickers. I loved the candy display in the booth!


In other behind-the-scenes news, our cover girl happens to be my niece, Reece. I tried one of the layouts for the cover (my first try), and though I loved the Lisa Storms design that ended up on the cover, I’m happy to have one for my scrapbook! Here is Reece a few weeks ago when she came to visit me at work.


What do you think of the issue?

  1. Hi guys, Question: did you reduce the # of issues you publish annually? It seems like I have been receiving SBE less frequently than you used to?

  2. Can you tell me where I can find the names/brands of supplies used on the cover of the June 2011 issue with the soda bottle “Picnic Party”. I’ve searched and searched and can’t find it :) Thanks :)
