Let me tell you about the "Papeles y Más" magazine. A Puerto Rico's scrapbooking magazine that is provoking a real revolution in this hobby's world locally. There's a lot of talent in our island and this magazine has provided room for different styles. It is also very valuable because there are just a few sources of inspiration in Spanish around the world and our language is kind of different vs Latin America and Spain. We have a lot of influence from US and even our measures are using the English system... We are unique... we are Puerto Ricans! So this magazine is covering for a lot of needs... and is awesome!
Mari Esposito is the leader behind this beautiful magazine that has published for almost 2 years. She's a very genuine person and she really understands scrapbooking is about diversity of styles, there's no right or wrong but lots of heart and fun when making a project. She's also very organized and responsible, qualities I really appreciate a lot. Tks Mari!
I've collaborated with the magazine in the last two issues and I've been published. I feel that this being a local effort, we have certain responsibility to support somehow. Not only buying the magazine, but also spreading the word and in my case, helping to generate content they can publish.
I will share some of those projects I've had published, in future posts... but today I wanted to share great news with you. The magazine has its first Design Team to be featured in next issue (December)... and... I was invited to be part of it!!! Isn't that amazing? I'm so blessed to have the trust of Mari and her team... and I am going to have so much so much so much fun!!!!
We met the entire team last weekend.
We have people from different towns of our beautiful Island. I already knew some of them or have heard about them but it was really exciting to meet them in person and share for a little while. Some of these girls have a long trajectory in this hobby and for some this is a business...
We even had an individual shooting...
... and I had to see how the photo turned out, you know!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can enjoy this magazine. You can get information in this Facebook page HERE. Talking about Facebook... I will soon have a Wine, Cheese & Scrapbooking fan-page in Facebook... Pending to details coming soon.
