Let's get artsy! Call for submissions for February/March '09

We already know our contributors are a creative bunch. Now's your chance to demonstrate just how true that is! For our February/March 2009 issue, we want to see your passion for art revealed. We're doing a special issue on art & love, and we're eager to see what you have to share on either topic.

Check it out, and get ready send your awesome creations our way.

T3: Tips, Techniques and Tutorials
Our hands-on how-to column, "T3," features both cutting-edge techniques from our Creative Team and tips and tutorials from our talented readers. For this issue, we'll give special consideration to submissions featuring artistic techniques or treatments or seasonal (especially Valentine's Day) themes.

Here's what we're looking for:
Tips. Have you found a great way to use layer blending modes? A quick fix for less-than-perfect photos? Send us your tips of 50 words or fewer on any digital scrapbooking subject, along with a layout or project that illustrates the tip in action.

Techniques. Busy scrapbookers are always looking for ways to make scrapbooking quicker and easier. Send us your time- and stress-saving tricks, along with a layout or project that shows how you've used them to create.

Tutorials. Send us your projects featuring intermediate- to advanced-level techniques, along with complete instructions for achieving the look. (Check out the step-by-step tutorials in any recent issue of Digital Scrapbooking to see what we're looking for.)

Submissions are due no later than August 27. You can submit using our handy-dandy online form.

As always, thanks so much for sharing your work with us!
