Whether it’s about embracing new crafting supplies or exploring unique story ideas, each issue is exactly what you need to spark your creativity.
  • Integration with Daily Pages: Dive into 5 specially designed Daily Pages challenges for each theme, encouraging you to explore new perspectives and techniques in your scrapbooking endeavors.
  • Book of Me: Each month you’ll have a story prompt and a style prompt to choose from, encouraging you to make at least one page a month in your Book of Me.

How to Access Lens Mini-Magazine

You’ll have access to our monthly Lens mini-magazine PDF below as part of Feminist Scrapbook School or a paid Substack Membership (if you’re an FSS student you get complementary access to the paid Substack — If you don’t yet have your access, put in a ticket that includes the email you use for Substack). If you are a student at Feminist Scrapbook School, you’ll also get access to our classroom (must be logged in) for each theme!

If you’d like to check out our older lens magazines (pre-pandemic), they’re all archived inside the Feminist Scrapbook School Library of Resources and available to FSS students right now.

And reminder! We’ve still got our amazing ALP Sticker Club going strong in 2024! Engage with our community and classes to earn points, and get delightful stickers mailed to you every month. It’s our way of saying thank you for being a part of this journey.

Can’t wait to see what everyone makes each month!
