WOW! What a day! Thank you all for joining us to share in this amazing and inspiring interNational Scrapbook Day! We have loved your comments, your emails, your messages, your tags and your posts all day long. We are happy you connected with our "inspired by" theme in the same way we feel we connect with YOU! It's truly been a great day but it's not quite over yet.
As many of you know Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine just celebrated 10 years and released issue number 41. A great milestone when the publishing industry has been challenged over the past 6 years. Our readers (YOU!) have been there every step of the way as we've grown and you've helped champion our success. From our first special card issue in 2007 to the release of several special card issues, our first wall calendar in 2010 to the release of several calendars (and now the Creative Planner!), to our first Crop & Create event in 2011 (we've now hosted 28!) and then a few years ago our first Crop & Create Delivered seasonal kits. We now do several kits each quarter and some custom ones too. Your support has meant everything and inspires us to look at new opportunities to engage with you. And with that kind of support we are ready to share a new division of SCT. Please join us in welcoming SCT Delivered: Online Classes!
“SCT is very excited to roll out its online education program this interNational Scrapbook Day with a class that is sure to inspire everyone! Based on the popular Easy-Detailed-Expert column in Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine, we’ve taken that concept and applied it to an online class. Designers Nicole Nowosad, Lisa Dickinson, Virginia Nebel, Sarah Webb, Sheri Reguly and Paige Evans have created technique-driven, trendsetting layouts to round out this six-week course. Your online content will be delivered directly to your inbox every Friday for six weeks, and includes complete step-by-step instructions, sketches, electronic cutting files, close-up and step-out photos, designer tips and tricks, supply lists and so much more!
Registration begins Friday, May 13th and week one of this inspiring class starts Friday, May 27th. Don’t miss out on this fantastic inaugural class that kicks off SCT’s amazing online education program."
If you've never taken an online class, you're in for a treat! The material will be delivered as a pdf straight to your inbox. The class is self paced so absolutely no stress friends. Take in the material at your leisure. If you have taken an online class, know that we've worked with a team of experts and you're going to love the format. The best part? The cost is only $22cdn/$20us plus applicable taxes. A great deal of education and a great way to use the supplies you have on hand. We're SO excited and hope you'll join us for this first class! More details will be released in our e-newsletter prior to registration. (sign up here)
