For all you Cards magazine fans out there...

...they are online now! Yep, up until now, the amazing Cards magazine (and Bead Trends, Scrapbook Trends and Idea Books) have only been available in print form, but they are online now! And at a discount price!

To give you a taste of their online magazines, they are offering a free download of their Mini Albums 2008 Idea Book! You can click on the link below or the blinkie on my sidebar to download it. I checked it out and was pleasantly surprised. I really love Cards magazine, the care and devotion they put into each issue is top notch. I was wondering how that would translate into the digital world (cause you know I am NOT a digi girl!! -LOL). But, I was very impressed.

I love how the pages come up on the monitor side by side, so you can get the feel of the magazine and double page layouts (unlike some other downloads where you have to scroll down for each page). Another really cool thing they do is highlight in red any clickable links. So as you are looking thru the pages all email addresses and websites (for staff, advertisers and such) show up briefly in a red box. Then it goes away, so it's not intrusive while you are reading, but it's there to show you what you can click on! Pretty cool! Oh and this Mini Albums 2008 Idea Book has 167 pages of amazing ideas, so I encourage you to check it out.
