A Friday giveaway and some winners!

A Friday giveaway and some winners!

Happy Friday! Or TGIF right? If you're in Canada then you're getting ready for the first long weekend that kicks off SUMMER! And oh how we've missed all things summer – bbq's, pools, flowers and of course longer days. Here is the interesting thing about being in publishing and media though, we've actually been working on our summer issue for the past six months. So we're really excited to see summer coming as that means the summer issue is around the corner! As we are finishing up the final design and photography, we can't wait to share the cover soon! 

Without a doubt it's been the busiest six months SCT has ever had. We have hosted events in new cities, we've launched SCT in Barnes & Noble and Books A Million, we've increased our kit business and just last week launched a new online education platform. All while creating our regular quarterly issues. And now it's catch up time! Here's a few prizes that need a loving home 🙂

Taylored Expressions Easter Bundle

My favorite birthday was when I went to buy scrapbooking stuff and I spent all the rest of my birthday having fun with it. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway! Love the bunny stamp. Posted by: Sharon P. | February 10, 2016 at 03:36 PM

  1. Denise C. May 20, 2016 at 10:07 am

    Oh please pick me and my BFF! She and I adore your magazine and would love to take your class together. Seeing as she lives in another state, this would be a perfect way for us to “attend” class together! Thank you so much for the chance to win this awesome SCRAPBOOKING adventure!

  2. colleen Fathers May 20, 2016 at 10:08 am

    I would nominate my friend Sarah A. She has been going nuts lately worrying about her younger son’s confirmation, older son’s Eagle award and High school graduation, plus helping this boy make a few other milestones in his life. She really needs something fun for herself.

  3. lisa808 May 20, 2016 at 10:09 am

    My friend Jean is kind, generous, and creative – I can’t think of a more deserving crafter to win a spot in your on-line class.

  4. Dee Brown May 20, 2016 at 10:10 am

    If I won I would share it with my friend and sister….we live in different areas of the province so this would be a fun project to do together while we are thousands of kilometers apart….p.s love the sentiment and might just print it off and hang it by the front door 🙂

  5. Dolly May 20, 2016 at 10:19 am

    My Friend deserves this because…well she’s just the best and she’s like my scrappy twin, we love the same stuff! and we always do classes together. She’s just THE best I tell you so she deserves a free class! 😀

  6. barb macaskill May 20, 2016 at 10:20 am

    My friend Linda Chidster deserves this because she is taking care of her mother at her Mom’s house and still maintaining her own house and family. She loves to create and even though we have never met in person we are great friends! It would be nice to share this with her!
    Congratulations to all the listed winners!

  7. Lynn Gauthier May 20, 2016 at 10:27 am

    Oh My Gosh…I would LOVE to win this for my Friend. We are the best of friends through e-mail and she is always sharing cards and projects with me to make. We make them together and then share pictures by e-mail. I would so LOVE to re-pay her by winning the class for her!!!!
    Thanks so much for sharing with us! You guys are AWESOME!!!

  8. Sandy Clinton May 20, 2016 at 10:57 am

    Sarah & I do all of our scrapping & card making together, so this would be perfect for us!

  9. TracyM #6773 May 20, 2016 at 10:59 am

    CONGRATULATIONS to the winners!!!
    I nominate my friend Donna Woods.
    She is already a very talented crafter and I think she would appreciate having the opportunity to add some more awesomeness to her creations in between facing health challenges and helping with the care of her Grandchildren. A caring, sharing woman who deserves some online pampering 🙂

  10. Chris Baker Cox May 20, 2016 at 11:01 am

    I nominate my friend Tracey G. She is so much more creative than she gives herself credit for. We are always bouncing ideas off of each other. She inspires me.

  11. Linda Tupper May 20, 2016 at 11:12 am

    Big Congrads to all the winners! I would love to win a class as I never have had the opportunity to be in one before and I would nonimate my sister because I love her. Thank you so much SCT for all you do, share, give to your readers. You’re the best!
    Have a great long weekend!

  12. MaryAnn N May 20, 2016 at 11:18 am

    I nominate my daughter and best friend, Jo-Ann. She holds a full time job as well as ensuring that her children have all kinds of activities from theatre classes, swim team , dance , sports, and still has some time to scrapbook with me. This is her relaxing time after all the fun times with her children.
    Her layouts and projects inspire too.

  13. Mel H May 20, 2016 at 11:30 am

    My niece needs this class. Jennifer recently lost a hard drive full of her kids photos and she is now struggling to finish pages with the photos she’s been able to find and back up and print. I think this would be the inspiration she needs after this sad setback.

  14. Helen Gullett May 20, 2016 at 11:45 am

    I know my friend, Grace, will LOVE this class because she just got her Silhouette Cameo!

  15. Kelly A. Crowl May 20, 2016 at 11:46 am


  16. theCook May 20, 2016 at 11:47 am

    That class looks interesting, would love to win a spot!

  17. Mary Holshouser May 20, 2016 at 12:24 pm

    My daughter would love to attend this with me.
    thanks for the chance.
    We love to work together, making greeting cards.

  18. Betcei May 20, 2016 at 12:25 pm

    My friend Loly at work makes Every Single Birthday, Retirement, Good Luck, Best Wishes, Sympathy and Anniversary Cards for the staff at our library! She watches the training videos on her breaks to learn new techniques, she shares her tools with classes at the library and is extremely creative with our displays! She would love to participate in your class!

  19. Teresa Medeiros May 20, 2016 at 12:41 pm

    I’ve already signed up for the class, but would love to win it for my BFF. She’s the one that introduced me to this wonderful hobby back in 2004 through a Creative Memories party (she had to drag me to it!). And I’m so grateful for that. Because of that initial introduction, I have documented cherished memories for my family and connected with so many lovely people in this industry. 🙂

  20. Sue D May 20, 2016 at 12:49 pm

    My stamping friend is essentially a shut-in so this would be fabulous for her.

  21. Carolyn Wright May 20, 2016 at 1:09 pm

    Wow. Thank you so much! I won the ali Edwards giveaway. I’m so thankful & a little blown away but such generous giveaways! I am already signed up for the exciting online class but I’d love for my sister to be able to take it so maybe I’ll remind her about these awesome blog posts that I usually check everyday but Teresa Medeiros was so sweet and let me know I should check the blog today! So thankful for my crop & create ladies! Cannot thank Jen enough for putting us all together. Wow you always go above and beyond but this made my day! So awesome! Thank you SCT team!

  22. Carla Hundley May 20, 2016 at 1:14 pm

    Congrats going to
    all the winners!
    My sister, Dena
    Hoff, would enjoy
    this as I got her
    into making cards.
    Carla from Utah

  24. Cyndi May 20, 2016 at 1:20 pm

    Thank you SCT for this opportunity. My friend and I often take the same online classes. We meet up every month and check in with how we are progressing through the class material. This keeps us accountable to completing the projects. I would love for her to win this class. She often helps me with colour choices or designs if a project is challenging. She’s smart like that!

  25. lisascreativeniche May 20, 2016 at 1:27 pm

    This would be so awesome! Thanks for the chance!

  26. super stick chick May 20, 2016 at 1:28 pm

    I would love to share this class with my friend Rhonda! We are always trying new techniques and pushing our creative limits together. We had so much fun on iNSD playing along with your challenges (so inspiring). It would also be fun to review your new class on our very active blogs and social media.

  27. Jane Z. May 20, 2016 at 1:37 pm

    Congrats to the lucky winners!!! I would share this class with my best friend and sister. We love craftin’ – and she is an avid scrapbooker, while I am a cardmaker. We never get to see enough of each other and she has now a bigger challenge than most with scrapbooking. She was just declared legally blind, but uses a magnifying glass to help her see some and continue to scrapbook!!! Wow – now that is dedicated! 🙂

  28. jennifer reynard May 20, 2016 at 2:03 pm

    I’ve already signed up for your awesome new class, but if was given the chance to give away the class, I would pay it forward to my friend Debbie Selby and Jeanette Yee. Thanks for all the fun days you offer to the scrapbooking community!!

  29. Gramma Dee May 20, 2016 at 2:06 pm

    Congratulations to all the winners!
    I would share this class with Jacqueline, who will have the summer to get crafty! We could use it at one of our “play dates” when she comes here or I go to her house to get some scrapping done.

  30. Brenda May 20, 2016 at 2:11 pm

    I would share it with my friend who loves scrapbooking and card making as much as I do! She is always there for me and I would love to do something for her in return.

  31. Lynn W May 20, 2016 at 2:36 pm

    I would love to win this prize and be able to share with my 85 year old mother who is an avid scrapbooker. But she is more than a scrapbooker she is an amazing lady who has helped me with so much over the years, but over the last few months she has been by my side helping me so much as I suffered a terrible fall down the stairs and fractured my pelvis. She has been there for everything for me and I would like nothing more than to be able to share some fun times scrapbooking together! It would be a win win for both of us!! Thanks for the chance to win such an amazing prize!!! ?

  32. Karen Lingel May 20, 2016 at 2:45 pm

    My friend Frances deserves this because she works hard, has a long commute, and is the most creative person I know. When we scrapbook together, she always makes suggestions that really improve my layouts! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  33. Cathy May 20, 2016 at 3:18 pm

    It would be awesome to win this gift for my best scrappy friend, Nina! She has had some health issues, but always has a smile on her face! Her daughter is getting married too and this would be a great stress reliever. Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  34. heather wehrli May 20, 2016 at 4:14 pm

    If I were to win this I would give this to Dee – she organizes for all of us to get together to crop and create – I have met some wonderful ladies through scrapbooking and it has become a wonderful outlet for me as I don’t have many friends here in Canada…

  35. Kathleen May 20, 2016 at 5:05 pm

    I would love for my mother Sandra to win this. We have both been reading the magazine since the beginning and the easy, detailed, expert article was always one of our favourites. We enjoy scrapbooking together and find it a great mother/daughter bonding time. I think taking the class would really help to rejuvenate the brain into trying some different layouts and trying something new. It is always great to get new inspiration. My mom is always so busy volunteering for others that it would be really nice for her to have something for herself. Thank you for the chance to win!

  36. Nina Oelke May 20, 2016 at 5:32 pm

    I think my Sister, who is my best friend, deserves to win this because she retired this year and now has time to spend on making cards and her jewellery making. She would so enjoy this class as would I. I scrapbook and she makes cards. Thank you so much SCT for giving us this opportunity. 🙂

  37. Cara Feeney May 20, 2016 at 6:27 pm

    I have been trying to convince a friend to start scrapbooking. I think she is a bit overwhelmed with all the info online so having a structured event might be the way to get her started. Thanks for the chance to win.

  38. Julie B May 20, 2016 at 7:44 pm

    My online scrappy friend absolutely needs this….she used to work two jobs but recently quit one as the first job was taking over her life with lots of OT and weekends. We’ve never met “live” but have become fast friends swapping stories, ideas, even a pocket letter. She loves surprises!

  39. Joyce Shaddick May 20, 2016 at 9:16 pm

    Eleanor Bishop is so deserving of this. She gives and gives to her family and friends never asking for anything in return, never taking time for herself. She would be beyond excited to take the class and it would force her to have me time :). Thanks

  40. Barbi Lewis May 20, 2016 at 9:39 pm

    I would love to win with my sister Carolyn Wright. She has looked after me for the last year driving me to doctors appointments, taking me to the hospital for my surgeries as I am not well. I would love to take some time to have her help me create and save memories for my children and husband. They have all been through so much this year and I know Carolyn would love a prize like this as she has been so busy with me and my illness she hardly takes time for herself! Thanks to all the sponsors and SCT and Catherine for sending me get well messages! SCT makes you feel like you are family xo

  41. Kimberli Bean May 20, 2016 at 10:45 pm

    I would love for my friend Chris to win, she’s always doing everything for everyone else, so she definitely deserves to have this fun class for herself! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  42. Deborah Rikard May 21, 2016 at 2:17 am

    My friend Cindy deserves to win this class because she is so kind and always shares her scrapbooking skills with others.

  43. Janet May 21, 2016 at 6:42 am

    I would love to win this class for me and my friend Pat Coleman. She is just now starting to scrap and this class wold be amazing for her. Thank you for the chance to win!!!

  44. Regina Harris May 21, 2016 at 7:20 am

    I would share with my sister-in-law who makes the most interesting cards.

  45. Lisa May 21, 2016 at 2:05 pm

    Thank you for a chance to win. My friend Elaine loves to learn new techniques for her pages. She loves scrapping with others to learn new ideas. She hasn’t been able to get out much lately. This class would chear her up and give her new ideas.

  46. Angela A May 22, 2016 at 8:40 am

    I nominate my friend Carli. She would love this class! She just got a Silhouette last year and loves to find out all the new things to do with it!

  47. Dorina D May 23, 2016 at 1:05 am

    Congratulations to all the winners!…..What fun you are going to have. What a fun giveaway and my friend is a cardmaker, but I love that your tips work for scrapbookers and card makers. Looking forward to the classes.

  48. Lee May 23, 2016 at 8:00 am

    My friend Kim would love this class and would not be able to sign up as she is on a budget – I would love to take this with her! thanks!

  49. Sandy Clinton May 23, 2016 at 11:49 am

    Well my BFF is my daughter, Sarah. We’re a bit stressed lately as we’re both preparing to sell our houses & buy one together! We do almost everything together & we all get along really well, so we’re working on this major lifestyle change. The only thing that never changes is our love of getting together to create things!

  50. Sandra Lugo May 23, 2016 at 2:52 pm

    I know my friend Mary would love to learn some new techniques to scrapbook all those pictures she has on her phone!

  51. Pam Kubala May 23, 2016 at 11:42 pm

    The delivered on line class sounds great. I would like to share the class with my friend Wanda. I know that she would love it as she makes cards for a tuck shop in one of our hospitals and she does a great job. So I know she would love the class and would become even more talented.

  52. Nadine May 24, 2016 at 6:56 pm

    I would love to win this for my mom. We both love to scrapbook, but can’t always enjoy our craft together because we live so far apart. This would be a great way for us to connect without the long drive!

  53. Sonya May 24, 2016 at 6:58 pm

    I’m sure my wonderful friend Karen Mroczek would love this just as much as me! We both love your magazine!

  54. Darlene Ragon May 24, 2016 at 8:56 pm

    I would share this class with my friend Betty. She loves to scrapbook as much as I do and I am always telling her how much I enjoy taking online scrapbooking classes. Thank you for the chance to win a spot for both of us!

  55. Tenille W May 25, 2016 at 12:21 am

    If I won I would share with my mom Ronda! She’s an amazing grandma to my kids and the love for Scrapbooking we have would be great to plan scrap nights for the two of us to spend quality uninterrupted time doing what we love with one of my best friends! Thanks for the chance to win! Always learn something new from your teams ideas!

  56. Melodie Ellison May 25, 2016 at 12:45 am

    The friend of mine who deserves to win this class is my mom, Rhonda. She deserves to win because not only is she kind, giving, and fun, but she is the most enthusiastic scrapper I have ever met! Besides all of her wonderful qualities, she also deserves to win because she really needs a joyful scrappin’ pick-me-up. She recently unexpectedly lost her best friend (and fellow scrapper). Normally, this is the sort of contest they would enter each other in, in fact. My mom deserves this class because no one is more enthusiastic about paper crafting than her, and she needs a little extra joy in the face of her recent grief.

  57. Leanne S May 25, 2016 at 9:39 am

    I’ve never had the opportunity for an online class. I would be delighted if I won a seat as I’ll soon be free on summer vacation. I think I would love my godchild Kaitlyn win this class as she’s very creative and a keen learner.

  58. Rosie Spicer May 25, 2016 at 9:51 am

    I would love to win this prize for my best friend, Kelly. She has been the 4-H scrapbooking project leader for our club for a few years now, and has taken a break this year, because she feels lacking in new ideas and inspiration. She needs to “get her groove back” before she can offer new ideas and techniques to teach the 4-H kids. This could be a step in the right direction.

  59. Althea May 25, 2016 at 11:04 pm

    I would love to win and share a spot with a friend who has been ill. This would lift her spirit. She and I could learn a lot from the classes and I love the blog and magazine. I can’t lie; I love everything!!!
