    Hi, I have pinned several of these into my Pinterest account Journals and stamps.

    http://www.pinterest.com/dmssmg/journals/

    Still love my Sommerset!

  2. Jen East says:

    That’s difficult! Somerset Studio and Belle Armoire are usually my favorites, and I’m currently exploring nuno felt due to the piles of serape scraps and tapestry yarn ends. However, I’d have to say this time around that I find the Where Women Create BUSINESS spread most intriguing since I’m in the process of reimagining my fine and functional arts and artwear clothing background and my current teaching jobs and looking to create a more cohesive business.

  3. My favourite mag is “Somerset Life” because it contains all the things I like, cards etc., thanks for the opportunity to win!

  4. Nita says:

    Belle Armoire is my all-time favorite, and this issue looks to be well-representative of the articles and projects I love. (Have to say Art Journaling is a close second!)

  5. Sue says:

    It is so hard to choose just one! At the end of the day, though, Somerset Life is the one most irresistible for me at the magazine rack! I pinned it to my ‘Favorite Things’ boardhttp://www.pinterest.com/pin/169025792239511410/

  6. Ann says:

    Somerset Studio – 2014 July Issue When Somerset Studio hits the rack I know its going to be a great week of fab ideas, mixed media projects,& new techniques to try. My All-time FAVORITE MAG: Somerset Studio has a touch of everything . Though I must say that Somerset Life comes in at number 2, with Gallery, Workshop, Apprentice, Stampers Samplers! Whats not to love! Thanks for this wonderful opportunity to win a mag.

    Somerset Life……..I love to extend art beyond a canvas and this issue appears to tantalize that urge!

  20. Carole says:

    I pinned Art Journaling. I thoroughly enjoy that magazine because I journal. It’s a great way to express yourself. I don’t know where to find my link. I pinned it to my Art and Collage board.

  21. Angela Alcott says:

    I am intrigued by Art Journaling!! I love to junk and journal. What a great way to bring two passions together. It’s “outside the box” and it makes me think! Love it!! ***I liked on FB and left a review!! Blessings!

  22. Karen Mary says:

    I pinned Mingle: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/233765036883094616/
    There’s always something to celebrate at our house, from the arrival of a 5th grandbaby to the acceptance to med school of a son, to the engagement of a daughter, to the blooming of the peonies in the yard. Love the fresh ideas in Mingle!

    • Gabriela says:

      Wow Karen, congratulations! You need to have lots of parties. Don’t forget to take pictures and submit them, you may end up on the pages of Mingle!

  23. Diane Dainis says:

    Somerset Life has always and I think will be my favorite of the magazines.
    It helps us all create a more beautiful life of our own.

  24. Jeanne Elliott says:

    It is a tough one, but I would say Somerset Studio as I love the variety of work you offer there. (Sew Somerset, not one of the choices here, is my absolute favorite in general as somehow collage and stitching really delights me.)

  25. Lisa M says:

    I’ve been a Somerset Studio fan since Day One (and it’s almost time to go get my copy from the book store!), but Somerset Life has really been growing on me lately. Eye candy to the max!

  26. Erika T says:

    A really tough choice!! I usually love the jewelry mags but IF I won-which would be so fabulous!-I would choose Where Women Create. I have wanted to start a business for so long, but scared & poor. I bought Belle Armoire this month so I can’t afford any more this month I hope I win!!

    • Gabriela says:

      Good luck Erika! The economy is tough for sure, but if you have a dream for a business I hope that you’ll pursue it! Even if it’s small scale to begin. :)

  27. Connie M says:

    I love Sumerset Studio. I love the inspirational articals and yummy eye candy.

  30. Jeannette W says:

    I’m a die hard Somerset Life fan, but I’m intrigued by Art Journaling! It’s something I’ve been thinking of getting into.

  31. carol viggiano says:

    Always get inspired by each mag layout… mingle makes me happy… dye and gone to heaven beautiful… art journaling is a passion of mine as well as jewelry making… but I must say that Where women create business is my favorite. It is not only beautiful but is enlivening and full of energy. Thanks for the opportunity!

    • Gabriela says:

      I agree, Carol – Where Women Create BUSINESS is a great magazine. It’s always so great to see creative businesses taking off the ground and doing well.

  32. Ella says:

    This is tough! I love Jane Austin and Somerset Studio always inspires me. Renee Zarate’s art pops in, The Stampers’ Sampler~ I love the heart piece! But, I love the party inspiration in this issue of Mingle. I am gearing up to throw my daughter a going away party. She will be leaving for college in August. Time seems to be flying~

    All the selections are stunning!

  41. Stephanie says:

    I am so excited about the “Unleash Your Inner Jane” feature in Somerset Studio!
