A lot goes into the interactive elements of each issue and my goal is to make sure we’re using them, myself included. So each issue, we’re doing them together!

For 5 weeks, beginning a week after the issue releases, we will begin with a weekly challenge that focuses on one piece from the magazine.

The challenges will all be sent via email (not posted on this blog) so if you want to participate, please start by signing up for that email list here. If you are already on my newsletter list, you’ll need to sign up for this list as it will be special for this challenge.

Here’s the typical schedule and how it will go after each issue is released.

Current Issue releases! This week we are giving you time to print materials or wait for your printed copy to arrive in the mail.

Week 1: Challenge 1 email delivered on Friday

Week 2: Challenge 2 email delivered on Friday

Week 3: Challenge 3 email delivered on Friday

Week 4: Challenge 4 email delivered on Friday

Week 5: Challenge 5 email delivered on Friday

If you purchase the magazine in either format, you’ll have access to all of these items so just play along with your physical or digital pages. OH! If you buy the physical from blurbbooks, be sure to download these pages in digital format so they are easier to work with. Use the code for the printables (found on page 5) to grab them for free!

If you don’t purchase the magazine, first of all, what are you waiting for? You can grab it here when it releases in the shop! But if you just want to participate in the challenges, the printable pages are available for free through the Thursday before week 2 only, then they will be available at the regular price of $3.50. They will available in the shop when the current issue releases.

Once I send the weekly email on Friday mornings, you are welcome to begin posting your projects using the hashtag #RHMagProjectChallenge and we’ll continue to use this for future issues and challenges! You certainly aren’t obligated to take the entire week to complete one challenge, you can take as much or little time as you need. Some friends will join late and that’s okay too!

I’m super excited about the interaction and fun we’re going to have together! I hope you’ll come along!

Stay hip & crafty!
