Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking pays for publication.
And on the other piece of conversation, I appreciate the free product that comes with being on a design team. And after reading your post Jen, I tend to side with what you are saying. Sure it would be AMAZING to have monetary compensation for the work I've done in the past but, really and truly, I don't mind. Whether that's good or bad, fair or not, I'm happy with the product. In fact, I've ended up saving a LOT of money by designing. haha! Because Lord knows I would have spent $100's on product if it hadn't come in the other way.
And, thankfully, there are publications that still pay like Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking. It's fun to get those little checks (when I remember to submit and get something accepted!) but, it has never been an expectation. Maybe if I did it full time or didn't have another career that pays me. This is just icing on the cake and helps to enable my hobby.
