mingle GIVEAWAY.........Stampington's newest magazine & MORE



The publishers of Somerset Studio, Somerset Home, Artful Blogging, Art Journaling, Belle Armoire, and many more, have decided to come out with a new type of magazine–Mingle.


I was asked to do a review of the new publication from Stampington, and I must tell you, it is glorious!
 

I don't think I've seen a publication that quite captures the essence of a gathering of Artists as beautifully as the pictures found in this magazine. They speak to me.


The tag line, “Creative Ideas for Unique Gatherings” is perfect for this fabulous collection of recipes, ideas, articles and the most wonderful photographs you can imagine. They take you into the celebrations and retreats, the kitchens and shopping trips, the weddings and renewals, with Artists and people in all walks of life, trying to capture the essence of friendship.


And they were extremely successful.


The thing I loved was the advertising, what small percentage of the pages it takes up, is all in the back of the magazine. Nothing interrupts you from a non-stop journey through the entire publication. You can sit back, relax and enjoy the entire trip through all the articles.
 

Then read the ads!



Here is the Contents page...

"The much-anticipated premiere issue of Mingle is finally here! Readers will delight in all the fun and unique ideas for gathering and celebrating we've put together. From a Thankful for Friends party thrown in the woods to extraordinary tips for hosting exceptional gathering with a creative flair, we're hoping to inspire you to find more reasons and ways to celebrate. This issue also explores two intimate artistic retreats - Pen & Paper: A Be Present and Do What You Love. There's so much eye candy in this issue you won't want to miss is."
~Stampington


So, if you’d like to win a copy of Mingle  just leave a comment here on the blog.  I'll throw in another PRIZE. A Chunky ATC kit for fun!!!




You have to leave the comment on the blog....not on FB....OK?


If you already took the ATC class, you can make one for a friend!


We’ll have a drawing next week for the winner.

  2. Hi Linda -

    Sounds like a really wonderful magazine. But then Stampington always has the most amazing publications. So anything they put out has to be great. And how generous of you to include a Chunky ATC kit. Now THAT is awesome in my book!

    Heading off to play catchup with what you've posted the last few days. Been out of commission, badly sprained ankle and no pc access, oh the agony, no pc, no blogs - yikes!
