Bella Crafts Quarterly introduces its winter issues entitled Winter Journey! One thing is certain…there is no such thing as too much crafty inspiration! Now if you are not familiar yet, we’d like to introduce Bella Crafts Quarterly™, the #1 completely FREE downloadable digital craft magazine. Finally, a craft publication designed for everyone. OH….before I forget, I'm participating in a Blog hop and giveaway with Margot Potter this week….so check at the end of this post to find out how to participate and what prizes you can win! That's right…prizes…plural.
On October 1, 2012, Bella Crafts Quarterly™ launched its first issue, a Halloween Special Edition featuring Halloween crafts and a variety of relevant, industry related articles. This issue was listed #8 of MagCloud’s top 15 popular magazines. A smaller Thanksgiving Special Edition was created for the month of November. These publications have been well received by the crafting industry at large. On December 1st, Bella Crafts Quarterly™ released it first full Quarterly Issue called Winter Journey. This issue has been greatly anticipated by readers!
Each issue of Bella Crafts Quarterly™ is filled with a variety of craft projects designed to inspire readers and foster a love of crafting. However, the publication offers much more than inspirational projects and fabulous eye candy. Bella Crafts Quarterly™ introduces readers to craft industry professionals through its Artist to Artist and Blog Star columns. It also serves to educate through its column Lessons with Lisa where readers can glean valuable information to improve their crafting skills. Photo Talk deals with taking better photos for craft business. The topic of photographing jewelry is being addressed in the winter issue. That’s not all!
In addition to being seasoned craft designers, Ann, Carol, Lisa and Theresa are business owners with decades of experience between them. Aware that many of their readers are also craft business owners, the Bella Creative Team strives to offer its support. With this in mind, Bella Crafts Quarterly™ features several columns to specifically address craft business matters. Socially Sensible is an example of this endeavor as it is designed to help craft business owners get the most out of their social media.
Finally, in the spirit of encouraging others to recapture time in their week for creativity, the Bella Creative Team features a “quick craft” in every issue of Bella Crafts Quarterly™. This column, aptly named Cre8time™, is designed to support the Craft and Hobby Association’s Cre8time™ foundation. The Bella Creative team is thrilled to show their support to an industry they adore.
