12 Days of Holiday Giving – Day 1!

12 Days of Holiday giving 2017

Good morning SCT friends! We’re so happy you’ve joined us to kick off our annual “12 Days of Holiday Giving” SCT style! If you’ve joined us in previous years be prepared for our biggest year yet. If you’re new to this celebration we hope you’ll join us each of these 12 days to see the inspiring projects our team has created AND see all the amazing giveaways we have in each of these 12 days! Our partners have truly outdone themselves and are excited to share so many prizes with our readers. They know what we do…that you’re the best! We also asked our team to share their favourite holiday memory and hope you’ll share yours with us too.

Let’s get this party started and ring in the holiday season with our Editor-in-Chief Susan Opel!

“Greetings from Utah, dear readers! I hope you’re having an AMAZING December so far.

There’s something about the holidays that gets my creative juices flowing, and I’m sure you’ll agree that there are all sorts of Christmas-themed products that you just can’t HELP but use! But I’m a rebel from way back, and one of my favorite things is to take non-Christmas product to create Christmas-ey designs. Add in a non-traditional color scheme, and I’m super happy about that! Yeah, in my bedroom, I have pink and orange trees, so I’m all about the unexpected.

Susan Opel 1 for Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine

I recently attended an event with some of my favorite card makers, and I was delighted to sit at the same table as Yana Smakula. If you don’t follow her on Instagram, I suggest that you do! She creates the most elegant and lovely cards.

One of Yana’s signature designs is to stamp and heat emboss a background on dark cardstock and then color the design in with colored pencils. It looks amazing and really isn’t very hard! So inspired by her, I stamped the Kaleidoscope Leaves background from Simon Says Stamp on dark grey cardstock and heat embossed the design in white. In a few minutes I had colored in a few sections, and voilá! — instant impact.

Susan Opel 2 for Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine

After that, I added the sentiment treatment using the Stained Glass Greetings stamp set from Simon in coordinating colors for a lush jewel-toned design. It reminds me of the church windows on Christmas Eve!

I can’t wait to send this card to a friend to bless her Christmas. What a joy to share the love via something handmade!

And Christmas does bring me such joy. I have such happy memories from my childhood, and probably my favorite (spanning many years) was when I was in elementary school. My dad was the principal of my little Lutheran school in the country, and each Christmas Eve, we put on a Christmas pageant at church. The church (built in 1912) is one of those glorious old gothic buildings.

Susan Opel 3 for Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine

We’d enter the sanctuary singing as snow often fell outside the darkened stained glass windows. But inside we were warmed by the hiss of the radiators, the soft candlelight, and the arrival of baby Jesus. At the end of the pageant after singing Joy to the World, we’d all file up to the tree for a brown paper bag filled with peanuts, crackers jacks, and an orange. It was simple and like a storybook. And I’m so glad it’s a part of my story.

May the light and love of the season bring you warm memories you’ll cherish for a lifetime!” ~ Susan R. Opel

Thank you Susan for sharing such a beautiful non-traditional card and a sweet memory!

    What an opportunity. Christmas in Australia is usually warm no snowflakes or sweaters for us BUT that does not mean we don’t use them on our layouts and cards. My sister and I have a tradition in that after Christmas lunch (or later in the day or on Boxing Day if busy) we scrap together. Thank you to your partners for their generosity meryy Christmas all.

  18. Alison Day December 9, 2017 at 11:21 am

    Creative Memories and American Crafts!

  68. Janet Sisk December 9, 2017 at 1:06 pm

    My favorite holiday memory is visiting my parents church on Christmas eve. They had what they called Christmas Eve in the round. They would set up chairs in the gym in a huge circle (lots of rows) and in the center would be the musicians/speakers. It would all be done in candlelight. We would spend an hour singing carols and hymns with people reading scriptures in between. It was always the perfect start to our evening of opening gifts and remembering Jesus’ birth.

    I would love to share this prize with my crafting BFF, Debbie. She would love to get some goodies. Thanks for the chance to win and Merry Christmas! 😀

  69. Jean marmo December 9, 2017 at 1:07 pm

    It’s a frozen glacier here in Michigan today! What a wonderful collection of goodies! Love the card. I know Jennifer taylor would love this too! My favorite memories are all the traditions we carried on with our children from cutting a tree – long hikes in the cold, snow ball fights, complaining -, to a dated ornament each year, to making and frosting cookies, to photos with Santa. Now that they are married and one lives across the country we have to start new memories and traditions!

  70. Elizabeth C December 9, 2017 at 1:08 pm

    What beautiful winter collections! Thanks SCT! Looks like we’re in for another year of fantastic prizes!

  71. Joan December 9, 2017 at 1:16 pm

    Beautiful things! I can hardly wait to get my magazine. I so look forward to it!

  72. Mel December 9, 2017 at 1:22 pm

    I know my crafty friend Darlene would love some goodies! And my favourite memories of Christmas would be pretty much everything we did with my kids when they were young! Thanks for the chance to win!

  73. Sue Kujawa December 9, 2017 at 1:29 pm

    My sister Nancy Pennington is my crafting buddy. We don’t always see things the same way so we encourage each other.

  74. Debbie December 9, 2017 at 1:30 pm

    Amazing gifts! How exciting!

  75. Suzie Quebedeaux December 9, 2017 at 1:35 pm

    What a beautiful card!!! It DOES remind me of the stained glass windows at my church. I love that memory. We have 2 very special traditions with my boys. The first is going the local Hallmark store to let them pick an ornament. They write their name and the year on the box. When they move out they will get to take their ornaments with them. When we put up the tree they love to talk about the wonderful memories of getting the ornaments and what happened each year. We started this tradition the year our oldest was born (of course, their first few years we pick their ornaments for them). The other is that we bake and decorate a cake on Christmas Eve to be served as dessert. We sing Happy Birthday to baby Jesus.

  76. Janice December 9, 2017 at 1:38 pm

    Merry Christmas, I would share the Creative Memories gift pack with my mother-in-law Joan. She is my crafting inspiration.

  77. Shelley December 9, 2017 at 1:40 pm

    Decorating the house is always my favourite part of Christmas. Watching the kids bring out their ornaments and listening to their stories and memories.

    What a great prize pack. I would definitely share with my crafting buddy Carla A.

  78. Krista Elder December 9, 2017 at 1:40 pm

    These colors are beautiful! Would love to do some crafting with my mom Nancy over the holidays!

  79. Janet December 9, 2017 at 1:41 pm

  82. LJ December 9, 2017 at 2:02 pm

  83. Sandi Marson December 9, 2017 at 2:08 pm

    What a wonderful start to the 12 Days of Holiday Giving! I absolutely love the Glacier collection by Creative Memories! Such a generous prize! Sweater Weather by American Crafts is such a sweet collection and I know that my sister-in-law and crafting companion Julie Marson would love to win this as well! (I would be in her good books for a while as we both love your Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine!!!!!) Thank you SCT for such a great start!

  84. Renee Hoffer December 9, 2017 at 2:08 pm

    After such a hectic afternoon fighting crowds it was such a fun surprise to open my email and see that the twelve days of dreaming of wonderful crafting prizes was here! I look forward to seeing all the awesome products…and dreaming about what I would make if they magically appeared in my craft room.

  85. Sarah Souza December 9, 2017 at 2:11 pm

    Such wonderful prizes! The snowflake punch is so cute!

  86. Sandy Clinton December 9, 2017 at 2:13 pm

    So excited that the SCT 12 days has begun! I would happily share the prize with my good friend Fay! As for a Christmas memory……Just after I was married, I did a crewel embroidered picture of a blacksmith shop for my father in law. In his younger days he had worked as a blacksmith. I changed the kit a bit and put his name over the door. The man actually shed a few tears! When he passed away and my mother in law moved into an apartment she gave it back to us & now it hangs in our family room!

    What a wonderful way to start the 12 days of Christmas. I started scrapping with Creative Memories and I love this new line. Thank you for a chance to win it and an actual paper copy of the the winter and holiday edition of SCT. I have a daughter who lives down the street and I’d love to share with her. My best Christmas memory was 50 years ago when I married the love of my life!

  88. TAMLEVER December 9, 2017 at 2:28 pm

    Susan’s card is gorgeous and it was lovely of her to share a favorite Christmas memory. My favorite memory was when I took an overnight Greyhound bus on Christmas eve from Calgary to surprise my parents in BC on Christmas morning! The look on my mom’s face when I showed up at the door was worth the whole long ride!
    Beautiful prize packs and I’m so excited for the giveaway. My crafty friend that would like the bonus prize is Kathy Lamb
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  89. SueinMtVernon December 9, 2017 at 2:30 pm

    Such awesome prizes for today! A favorite Christmas memory is being in the kitchen with my two cousins and my sister washing the Christmas dinner dishes. (We we’re all elementary school age.) All the dishes had to be cleaned and put away before any packages could be opened. Boy, we’re we fast dish washers!
    I would like to share this prize with my friend, Cherri Carpenter.

  90. Kathy Berger December 9, 2017 at 2:44 pm

    Thank you for a chance to win a wonderful prize!

    I would love to share one of these prizes with my friend Pat Barton. She and I met on the internet years ago, but on our first in-person meeting, I felt like I had met the sister I never had. Even when we don’t get together for years I always feel like we have never been apart! She and I share this crazy love for Stamping and die cutting, and making beautiful cards together whenever we can!

    As for my favorite holiday memory…there are actually two that stand out. The first was when I was about 11 years old. My eldest brother was in the US Army, and had been stationed overseas for over a year, and wasn’t expected home for another several months. We knew he had badly injured his back (3 broken vertebrae), and were worried about him, and missing him terribly. Well…on Christmas Eve we were all getting dressed up to go to midnight mass when the doorbell rang. My mother went to answer, and let out a scream…standing at the door is his dress uniform was my brother! He joined us all for mass, and for the best Christmas ever. And he was home to stay, having been given a medical discharge.

    The second special Christmas was another surprise homecoming. My daughter had been studying abroad for several months, but was due to come home a short time after Christmas, once her exams were complete. Since she is an only child, I was feeling a little blue that she wouldn’t be with us for the first time at Christmas. And I was also feeling blue because I had had a second surgery on my ankle that didn’t work, and had left me with a nasty permanent and painful condition. And to top it off, I had slipped and broken that same leg a few days earlier. I was LOW. But that all changed when my daughter showed up totally unexpectedly on Christmas Eve. She had petitioned to take her exams early, and caught a flight, standby, just to be home with me. My mood flipped completely, making the holiday one of my happiest ever.

  91. Valerie W December 9, 2017 at 2:48 pm

    I would like to share the gift with my dear friend Ros Crawford, I met her 7 years ago in blogland, then we met in person in London, I remember very clearly the moment she walked into the revolving room where I was waiting, I have tears in my eyes, like meeting a long lost sister!

  101. Johanne December 9, 2017 at 4:51 pm

    The 12 days of Christmas are always outstanding. My crafty friend is Tania Powell and she would love this.
    My memory of Christmas, when I was little was following the Quebec tradition of celebrating on Christa,s eve. I grew up in that province and it’s very typical to eat, celebrate and open gifts that night. I could spend all day on the 25 playing with my new toys. I usually got paper or pencils or something artsy which was fantastic. Now that I no longer live in that province my husband and I continue our two traditions, appies for dinner and one gift is allowed to be opened.
    Good luck to everyone who comments.

    wow – what a fabulous way to begin the 12 days. Such awesome inspiration. Love the rich look of the royal colors and the white embossing. Can’t wait to see what’s next. And the awesome prizes for some lucky winner – Thanks for a chance

    My favorite holiday memory is Christmas Brunch. Every year, the kids could open their stockings and then we’d all sit down to yummy brunch dishes – chipped beef gravy and biscuits, hash brown casserole, omelets, bacon…. the list goes one. Everyone is usually in the kitchen helping out. Now with grandbabies to snuggle, we still enjoy brunch all together.

    I’d like to share (if I win) with my crafty friend Lauri who opens her house to fellow crafters once a month to get together and hang out, creating what every we feel like.

  154. HeatherH December 10, 2017 at 7:41 am

    Love the embossed card! Great giveaways-Sweater Weather is very cute!
    I have lots of great Christmas memories from childhood. On Christmas Eve we would always go to the family service at church with lots of carol singing and then to a get together at friends’ house with lots of yummy food.

  155. Kim Gallant December 10, 2017 at 7:42 am

    Wow what a great prize I would share with my friend Susan.

  156. Cara Feeney December 10, 2017 at 7:56 am

    Love this time of year when gifts are being given by all the companies I support throughout the year. What I enjoyed about this time of year as a kid was all the ice skating we used to do. We never cared that it was cold out.

    I am in awe over this card. It is truly beautiful! I love card making with my daughter Miranda. Thanks for sharing such lovely craft projects.

  165. Teresa Medeiros December 10, 2017 at 10:03 am

    Thank you for sharing your lovely story with us Susan. Some of my fondest Christmas memories revolved around church also and attending midnight mass. Something so serene and magical about all the candles lit up, the choir singing and baby Jesus in his manger at the altar. I love your card. It’s so beautiful.

  166. Shelly Greybeck December 10, 2017 at 10:19 am

    I haven’t been following this blig, so I guess now is a great time to start. I love the card, Susan; it clearly demonstrates your outside-the-box style. And those sweet pink and orange trees…so cute!

    What a great giveaway! My favorite holiday memories are of my brother and I finding the tallest tree that would fit in my mom’s living room and decorating it while listening to Elvis on the record player. I love seeing all the old ornaments every year and bickering with my brother on who made the monstrosity of tied together straws dipped in gold glitter, neither of us wanted to take the blame. (I still say it was him).
    Thank you for the chance to win.

  173. Roni Anderson December 10, 2017 at 11:53 am

    Such a fabulous way to start this event. Great prizes and great card that Susan shared!

  203. LC Lamothe December 11, 2017 at 2:13 am

    Such an amazing and incredibly generous way to kick off the 12 days of giveaways! As odd as this may sound, my favorite Christmas memories are the years I spent Christmas at the beach. Very little decorations or gifts, just a delicious meal and time spent with family. As much as I love a white Christmas, I instead dream of a beachy Christmas. I very much miss the smell of the ocean and the sound of the waves. I would love to share a crafty prize with my outstanding Mom. She’s truly the best and I know it would make her day to receive something so fun in the mail! Thank you so very much Creative Memories, American Crafts and SCT for this exciting chance to win such an awesome crafty prize!!!

  204. Bethany Sanders December 11, 2017 at 2:44 am

    My favorite childhood memory was decorating the tree and telling the story about each ornament. I’m so lucky to have many of those same ornaments on my tree now for my kids to enjoy!

    Love this gift pack. One of my favorite holiday memories is the doll house I received as a child. We didn’t have a lot of money, so my parents had my sibling s make the furniture for it. 40 years later, I still have every piece.

  224. Dawn Johnson December 11, 2017 at 12:57 pm

    I never would have thought of that technique but I am so in love with…definitely on my to try lost now. We just lost mom this year and Christmas will be bittersweet as she was a mom that always made Christmas special for us! One year, the year cabbage kid dolls came out and were impossible to get or afford, my thrifty momma got me a coleco vision game system that just so happened to come with a voucher for a free cabbage patch doll….I may not had her on Christmas morning to open but she came eventually….when it was a near impossible gift to have gotten that year!! I still have Gabby in my doll collection!!! Lol

  225. Cheryl December 11, 2017 at 1:04 pm

  255. Bonnie December 11, 2017 at 10:46 pm

    Wonderful package – I am loving that snowflake punch. One of my favourite memories is when I was younger, still in university, I would spend my holidays with my big sister, so I could spend time with my young niece and nephews. My niece and I share a love of reading and I often would read to her or make up stories for her at bedtime. I was in my bed one Christmas Eve, reading, and she climbed into bed beside me with a book I gave her, and told me that I always read to her, and said it was her turn to read to me. It was such a lovely thing, she was only 5, and I felt like that was such a sweet Christmas present for me

  256. Naomi Harner December 11, 2017 at 10:58 pm

    My friend Donna would love a copy too, My favorite memories of Christmas are the past 5 years… since my son was born, Christmas has been so different. It was always a rough holiday for me until then, now it’s full of fun and crafting and smiles. Every year it just gets better and better… despite the fact I am mid divorce this Christmas, it’s awesome because I still have him..and that is what matters.
    We decorated the tree together this year, something he usually did with his dad. This year he asked me to do it with him and that made my heart melt. Tree is decorated, the presents are under it.. and the apt is full of love. Best Xmas present ever!

    Thanks for a fab giveaway, good luck everyone… and Merry Christmas!!

  283. Lori Scholz December 12, 2017 at 11:01 am

    Both of those lines are adorable. The Creative Memories line reminds me of winters in Wisconsin, when I was little. Seemed like snow on Christmas was never a wish, it was just how much. My friend, Jennifer Halleck, and I need some inspiration, so the SCT magazine would be great. I did get the Winter issue in the Sleigh Bells kit – both are beautiful.

  284. Sarah C December 12, 2017 at 11:43 am

  308. Karen Kuschel December 12, 2017 at 6:19 pm

    One of my favorite holiday memories is the year we didn’t put any ornaments on our tree, but I cut a box full of Christmas Ornament die cuts in pretty patterned papers and each night each family member would write a random act of kindness they had performed that day. By Christmas our tree was loaded and we felt very grateful to have been a part of so many acts of kindness through the Season. I would love to share with my friend Debbie if I win!

    I cherish a long-ago memory of a pink ceramic tree with a music box that plays Silent Night… made by my mom with her own loving hands, ceramics class was [I’m sure] her ‘get away’ from us nine kids!
    Being a part of this card-making community has been a life saver for me … Kristie Goulet is one of my longest blogging friend – who might have been the first to exchange Christmas cards with me! We’re on our fourth Christmas now, and I look forward to her gorgeous card each year! I mailed out 70 cards to U.S. friends, and 24 global, this year!!!
    Kristie, thank you… SCT thank YOU for using my card in this issue – a first-published card for me! Christmas is surely special this year!

    Nice way to start this 12 days of giveaways. All of the sponsors are wonderfully generous. One of my favourite memories of Christmas was the big dinner my parents spent the week shopping,cooking, preparing for. My dad was a great cook. He would play Mario Lanza on our Hi Fi stereo system . drowning out all the other noises and would sing at the top of his lungs. He made this wonderful pastry filled with honey and nuts and it was such a treat to eat. My mother cooked the turkey and all kinds of vegetables. The house smelled so wonderful. The smell of food cooking,music playing and family together was always a happy memory for me.

  322. Sue Tersmette December 12, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Thank you for running this giveaway again. Just finished your online Winter edition cover to cover. So many pretty layouts! One of my favourite Christmas memories growing up, was attending the midnight service with my high school friends who never attended church. When service ended, the huge oak doors of the 100-year-old church opened, the green Christmas had been replaced with an inch of pristine white snow, and the snow continued to fall softly. It was magical.

    as a family and Willie Nelson was singing on the radio. It was
    just a few minutes of pure BLISS….it was wonderful.

    What a great start to the holidays. 🙂 We had an advent wreath when I was a child. It’s a wreath that hung horizontally from a stand with 4 candles in it. Each Sunday we’d light a candle and sing carols. By Christmas all 4 candles would be lit, creating a cozy glow.

  447. Vikki December 15, 2017 at 2:56 pm

    Wow, these are fabulous. I would share with Krysten for sure! I have so many wonderful holiday memories, it is hard to choose just one!

I think my friend Anne-Marie Marcoux would love the AC collection but she like me, already subs to your lovely magazine so for that part I would have it as a prize on my FB group :). One of my favourite memories, but it is recurring every year, is most definitely my town’s lighting ceremony 🙂

  449. Katie December 15, 2017 at 3:42 pm

    Happy Holidays!

  450. Mary-K. Hardy December 15, 2017 at 3:43 pm

    Wow. There is never a better way to end the year that watching the 12 days unfold on SCT. My favourite family Christmas tradition is the hiding of Harold, a macrame Christmas angel that my Mom got from a secret Santa when we were kids. All through the Christmas season he would end up being tucked under someone’s sheets or pillow — or even in the shower — to surprise some unsuspecting person. The best one happened when my niece was 7 or 8 and she (with the help of her Mom, my sister) tucked in the back of my vehicle. It took a bit until I ‘discovered’ Harold but then a year later I put him back in the same place they had put him knowing they were going to be in my vehicle and Quinn’s squeal when she saw he was still in the same place as last year!!

  451. Debbie Meyer December 15, 2017 at 3:53 pm

    I would share the prize with my dear friend Lynne, she got me into paper crafting and has been a dear friend and support through the highs and lows of life.

    I was thinking of all the traditions we do as a family, some are new, some are old. I think mine would have to be the advent calendar. I started it 20+ years ago with Jingles the elf leaving a treat (sometimes a small toy, sometimes a chocolate) each night for both kids and is still going for the youngest….he asked me to keep doing it 🙂

    Wonderful prizes – good luck to all! Thanks SCT and all your fantastic sponsors!!

    One of my favourite holiday memories as a child was heading to our cottage on Boxing Day after all the Christmas festivities were over and to ring in the new year. There was always so much snow there and the whole family would be there. We would clear the snow on the lake to make a skating rink, toboggan down the hill from our parking lot to the lake and New Years Eve pop the champagne corks on the deck at midnight. So many happy memories!

  546. Angela L. December 19, 2017 at 7:06 pm

    Christmas has been tough to get used to since becoming an “empty-nester” so I haven’t dragged out the Christmas decorations/tree for the past few years, including this one… Don’t get me wrong because I used to totally adore the holiday but with little family and my husband working in retail security, the holiday spirit just seems to float on by and before we know it, it’s that time. Last year, we were headed to Connecticut on Christmas Day because my husband’s sister was in a coma, thankfully we made it for him to be able to see her before she passed away……. so another reason for the Christmas blah….. however, this year we’ve been blessed to meet some amazing people from our church and were invited to join the group to go Christmas caroling and refreshments last night…. I’ve never done anything like this and it really brought on some holiday joyfulness so I am hoping for this to become a new yearly tradition for us…. Thank you for the Christmas cheer and chance to win some goodies…

  547. Shirley December 19, 2017 at 7:08 pm

    Those sweater die cuts from the sweater weather collections are the cutest!!! I would share this collection with Melanie. We could wear our ugly Xmas sweaters, drink hot chocolate and craft a cold winter day away!

  548. Julie Bechtel December 19, 2017 at 7:10 pm

    Awesome giveaways! Thank you for all you do to inspire our creativeness. My friend Kim would love to win too!

  549. Pauline Zarlenga December 19, 2017 at 7:12 pm

    Great prizes… my sisters and I would love to win them. My favourite memory is my husband haling out the biggest Christmas tree we’ve ever had out of the forest. We decorated it together with the kids. It is always so much fun.

  550. Kathleen Sawyer December 19, 2017 at 7:22 pm

    Thanks for the 12 Days Of Christmas giveaways – finally some time to comment on all the lovely prizes. My most crafty friend is Emillina (she is addicted!). A favorite memory from Christmas past is the year we could not afford a tree and someone from my mama’s work brought one to our house – I was so excited to have a real tree (our cats liked it to).

  551. Amy Morris December 19, 2017 at 7:22 pm

    My favourite Christmas memory is of going to Christmas Eve service with my Dad, He would come to my place (when was married) and he would come and stay for a few days! Christmas Eve we would go to church, than come home and have my siblings and Mom over we would exchange stockings and have lots of food and laughs and build amazing memories, every year! When he passed Christmas was forever changed, and now my sister and I make heat and hygiene packs for the homeless and hand them out and McDonalds gift cards to the homeless all day Christmas eve and than I go to church and sing and remember my Dad and all those that are spending Christmas in Heaven!! I would use the prize to make Christmas cards to put in the packs!
    Thank you for the chance to win, and Merry Christmas!!

  552. Deborah Dvorak December 19, 2017 at 7:22 pm

    Love the paper set! Would love to win and a magazine too! Thanks

  555. Sherry Shumay December 19, 2017 at 7:47 pm

    OMG I absolutely love the beautiful prizes. My crafty friend is Kim Hyshka, she always inspires me with a lot of her “bling”, she is just that kind of glitter girl. We share our scrapbooking weekends whenever it is possible. Scrapping wouldn’t be the same without her.
    One of my Christmas memories was when we had no snow and my sister had bought me a tea set and we played out on the front step with it. Things were so much simpler then. So looking forward to this Christmas and making some new memories to scrap!

  556. Lainey M-R December 19, 2017 at 7:49 pm

    Beautiful card! So simple and elegant! Wonderful prizes to start the 12 Days! My favourite crafty friend and mom is Gwen McCaffrey, her and I both started our scrapbooking adventures together 15 yrs ago with many Creative Memories albums, papers and punches! And many of those tools we still use today!

  557. Dana M December 19, 2017 at 7:55 pm

    Wow, so much fun! What a great event. My most crafty friend is Karla. My favorite Christmas memory is the candlelight service with my grandma and family

  558. Karan December 19, 2017 at 8:02 pm

    The 12 days of incredible prizes, offered for Christmas, are sure to be a huge blessing for each winner! I love Scrapbook & Cards Today. I appreciate that so many sponsors are gifting such wonderful prizes to your readers, in honor of Christmas and Hanukkah. Good luck to everyone!

  559. Sharri Niehus Reeves December 19, 2017 at 8:05 pm

    Susan Opel, I too went to a small Lutheran school for 8 years, and the highlight of Christmas Eve was always the school program. It almost always started with all 8 grades processing into the sanctuary singing “Oh Come Little Children”, and ended with us all getting brown paper bags full of candy and apples and oranges.
    My crafty friend is Judy Sublette.

  560. Cindy Dubois December 19, 2017 at 8:12 pm

    Love this. Thanks for all you do. My crafty friend is Kathy.

  567. Sharon Gosling December 19, 2017 at 8:45 pm

    Such great prizes !!!

  568. auntie em December 19, 2017 at 8:55 pm

    Well, I couldn’t post on your FB page so this is the message I was going to leave…
    Merry Christmas and a large Thank you for organizing and sharing all the great prizes for the giveaway on your blog. Wishing everyone at SCT all the best for 2018!

    I love that you and and AC are both sharing with a crafty friend. I would share with Joanne Carr. She is a great crafting buddy. Not only do we share supplies and ideas but we share a lot of laughs and tears while we are crafting. Its amazing how we can share while we are playing with paper.

    The holidays always make lots of wonderful memories. I guess some of the best were our daughter and son’s first Christmas. Its always so amazing to see your children’s delight in the pretty lights and the decorations. Taking them to see the Santa Claus parade and letting them taste their first candy cane (while secretly panicking they might choke). Those special days fly by way too fast. Keeping these memories makes scrapbooking so important!

  569. Helen December 19, 2017 at 9:15 pm

    What an awesome prize. Thank you for sharing.

  570. Kathy Nelsen December 19, 2017 at 9:19 pm

    SCT partner prizes are always amazing! Love the Glacier blue and Sweater Weather sets. Definitely need to give the card technique a try. Thanks so much SCT!

  571. Kathy Lang December 19, 2017 at 9:34 pm

  574. Lynn Best December 19, 2017 at 10:33 pm

    wow thanks for the opportunity to win! Merry Christmas from Nova Scotia, Canada

  575. Kimberly December 19, 2017 at 10:54 pm

    my crafty friend would be Kristine Lagerstrom, we both love scrapbooking and pictures, as for a holiday memory I remember when I recieved my first bike on Christmas morning, it was blue and white with a banana seat, oh so wonderful with a pretty white basket on the front thought it was amazing that Santa would know just what I was dreaming of

  576. Sonya E December 19, 2017 at 11:10 pm

    Love the ugly sweaters. Of course I had quite a few of them myself and I got rid of them the year before they became popular.
    My sister laughed so hard when she saw that I still had them and then told me it was time for them to go. Oh well. I would share
    with my crafting buddy Margaret. We always show each other what we are up to and take classes together.

  577. Anabela Teixeira December 19, 2017 at 11:33 pm

    Thank you SCT magazine for all the fun this year. I am loving that Sweater Weather by AC and Snow & Cocoa collections.

  578. Joyce December 19, 2017 at 11:40 pm

    I have very similar memories of our little country church at Christmas, Susan. Our bag of goodies always had a life saver book and candy cane. And we always got a new Christmas outfit. Thanks for bringing back such lovely memories. I neeed that today.

  579. Abbie Liu December 19, 2017 at 11:58 pm

    Merry Christmas, SCT! and thanks for brightening up dreary days with your beautiful msgs and posts and especially, awesome giveaways!!! My new crafty friend, Miranda would really appreciate these prizes. My fave Christmas memory – watching The Sound of Music with my family. My mom used to work 12/hrs, 7 days/week and it was a treat to see her at home.

  580. Jocelyn Prang December 19, 2017 at 11:59 pm

    What an amazing card! And I love the story about the old church. It brings back good memories of my childhood too. In addition, I too have started making all the Christmas cards I send out each year. I do have to be careful to put on the extra postage, but I think of it as sending each person on my list a little gift! That’s 50-60 gifts every year! I’d better start on next year right now! LOL

  581. Kim Hyshka December 20, 2017 at 12:20 am

    I love that I found this magazine this year as it is amazing. This year I have done more crafting for Christmas then ever. I love this time of year where family is together but it is also hard as 7yrs ago I lost my mom on January 2nd I miss her so much. Merry Christmas everyone!!

  582. Barb in AK December 20, 2017 at 1:05 am

  607. Joan VanCourt December 20, 2017 at 12:33 pm

    Whew, this took me forever to find the end of the comments. Lol. Beautiful card. Must try that technique. My favorite memory of the holidays is when my dad and brothers would go tree hunting in the woods for the PERFECT tree. Then after my dad strung the lights, we got to hang the ornaments. Then, my brothers set up the train to go around the tree. I could watch that train forever. Thanks to the sponsors. Merry Christmas

  608. Anne December 20, 2017 at 12:48 pm

    Beautiful card and great prizes!

  609. Cari C December 20, 2017 at 12:58 pm

    Any time with family was full of great memories. I used to love going to my Great Uncles place for dinner on the 26th, it was a small, dingy bachelor pad cabin with a couple pieces of plywood placed on top of tables to hold all the food. But it was full of my family, lots of love and cheer. I loved staring at his blinking lights on his Christmas Tree. I would share the prize with my mother, Darlene.

  619. Stacey B December 20, 2017 at 1:54 pm

    My crafty friend would actually be my mom. She would LOVE a copy of the brand new winter issue!

    My favorite holiday memory is from just a few years ago. We met our 3 children that we adopted out of foster care in 2014. They moved in with us just days before Christmas and that was my first Christmas as a mom. We’d done 5 rounds of IVF and they had failed. But…I was finally a mom!

  620. Carrie Lindner December 20, 2017 at 3:20 pm

    What a wonderful way to get the Christmas season started. I love all the products and samples that come with the magazine AND the ways to use them.

    Day 1 of 12 starts with a bang! Thank you so much to all the sponsors! My favorite Holiday memory was when I was 7 years old and I woke up at the crack of dawn to go peak under the tree. I saw a shining new drum set that Santa had left for my brother. It was shining in the first rays of sun coming through the living room window. It was just like magic!! My scrappy friend Christine would love to receive a gift too!

  646. Kim Klinkovsky December 20, 2017 at 6:22 pm

    Like many people, I built my stash of paper and tools with Creative Memories. I LOVE their products – especially their albums and pages. I would love to win any of the prizes – and especially want the Winter SCT issue. I live in Maryland but my crafty friend, an avid scrapbooker and card maker, lives in British Columbia. I would love to win FOR HER!

    Thanks – what a great start!

  671. Loly Borda December 21, 2017 at 12:07 am

    My favorite holiday memory is when all my cousins came over our house on Christmas day. Our house was always the gathering place. As for who I thought would enjoy these goodies, my dear friend Trinh Arietta comes to mind. She’s one of my very dear friend who I met through card making. 🙂

    One of my fondest memories is the hours spent after Christmas doing crafts. Our 4-H club added crafts to their list of projects so our parents gave my sister and i a huge box of craft kits. Many happy hours that have become a lifetime passion

    What a beautiful card that Yana made! I love the Glacier pack! My friend MaryJo Boyus would love the magazine. My favorite memory is when I was about 4 and we walked back into a field and cut down our own tree and decorated it. There was snow on the ground and I remember filling my dad as he carried the tree Home. It was a nice day

  683. Alyson Mayo December 21, 2017 at 9:43 am

    That card is just stunning! My favorite Christmas memory is going sledding at my grandma’s house for hours. How we did that as kids I will never know. My grandma would always greet us with hot chocolate and cookies when we came back in to warm up.

  688. Shannon December 21, 2017 at 12:32 pm

    Simple but sweet memories are the best. Ooh, glacier goodness and cozy sweaters – yes! I chose my daughter Aimee to share the love.

  689. Carolyn E December 21, 2017 at 12:50 pm

    Beautiful card!
    My favorite memory is the new tradition my sister, mom and I just started last year…we pick a country in our genealogy book my Gram made me, and make food from that country for our Christmas dinner! Last year, all three of us were cooking German food and having such a wonderful time, and this year it is an Irish Christmas!

    The holidays are so amazing, maybe the time that we went to midnight mass with our family and Santa had been there while we were at church and we got to open a present before going to bed!!

  716. Tara Finch December 22, 2017 at 12:44 am

    Love the colors!!

  717. Cheryl McQuaid December 22, 2017 at 1:49 am

    My favorite Christmas was spent eight years ago. Our 20 year old son was successfully battling brain cancer, our first grandson had survived a brain bleed. I remember the gratitude I felt that day. We had 3 of our 4 kids with us, our grandson, my son’s Jewish girlfriend experiencing her first Christmas, our adopted grandmother AND in the true spirit of Christmas we invited my husband’s first wife to join us, because I couldn’t let her be alone on Christmas. Everyone had presents under the tree, great food, and jolly happy company. I am teary thinking about that hodgepodge Christmas. It was truly blessed. My sister Kathy who helped become a crafter is my nominated friend.

  718. Janet Zeppa December 22, 2017 at 10:30 am

    I always love your 12 Days of Christmas. So much inspiration!! I know that my friend Leesa would love these goodies too!

  720. Ange W December 22, 2017 at 12:22 pm

    Wow! Such a fun, beautiful, awesome and generous prize! My crafty friend Amelia would LOVE to share these fun goodies with me.
    I have lots of great memories, but one of my favs is when our little town would have their lighted xmas parade. They would turn off ALL the lights on Main Street (back then that was actually dark) and then hit the switch to light all the xmas lights down the whole street. It was awesome!!

  721. Heather Rambow December 22, 2017 at 12:39 pm

    My favorite memory is when my Grandma’s neighbor would dress up as Santa, ring sleigh bells and pound on the house saying ho ho ho. We would start screaming “Santa is Here”. He had a big bag of presents. We thought he was the real deal for many years. I would tag my crafty sister Janet. I really hope I win one of these gifts. Thank you so much.

    Susan’s card design is really gorgeous. I will definitely be trying that technique soon. Thanks for an exciting first day of inspiration and giveaways. One of my special Christmas memories is going out shopping with my dad for gifts for my mom. We had such a nice time together, shopping and talking, just the two of us. It was the only time of year we did that because Dad hated the mall. ?
