Ali Edwards announced today via her blog that the December issue was her last Studio A column for Creating Keepsakes magazine.
Edwards has written the Studio A column for Creating Keepsakes since January 2006, a run of 3 entire years for the popular column. She was “discovered” by Creating Keepsakes after being one of the winners of the 2003 Hall of Fame contest. Over her time with the magazine, she has also written four titles for the magazine’s book imprint: A Designer’s Eye for Scrapbooking, A Designer’s Eye for Scrapbooking with Patterned Paper, Life Artist, and Sharing Your Story: Recording Life’s Details with Mini Books. Edwards’ handwriting is iconic in the scrapbook industry, available for download as a popular font and as part of the many products she’s been designing recently.
With the Studio A column ended by “mutual” decision with Creating Keepsakes’ editors, will readers see any more of Edwards in the magazine? She says that at this time that “nothing is currently scheduled” but that “you may potentially see some feature articles from me in the future.”
So what will Edwards be doing in the future with her column to occupy her creativity? She says that she plans to concentrate on her wildly successful blogging, and on her product lines for Designer Digitals (pictured above) and Technique Tuesday (pictured below).
