2. Cards to include in our PageMaps column
Scrapbook & Cards Today’s sketches are always inspiring and this one is no exception. Download the sketch here, use it to create a card or layout, and then submit it to us for possible publication. We encourage you to be creative with this sketch. Flip it, adjust it, or copy the design exactly — it’s simply a blueprint to get your ideas flowing! This is for our spring issue, so we ask that you keep seasonality in mind (as outlined in the themes above) when creating.
All submissions, including submissions for the PageMaps call, can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a well-lit photo (less than 1 mb) of your project, your name (as you’d like to see it published), address, phone number (your contact information won’t be printed), and a brief supply list.
Compensation includes a fabulous box of product from our sponsors including a great collection from Photo Play Paper plus a copy of this issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today! You will receive the product and issue when your project is returned to you. We look forward to seeing your work!
