A sneak peek at our winter issue and some SCT team inspiration!

A sneak peek at our winter issue and some SCT team inspiration!

Hello Thursday!  The 2015 Planner is currently on press and guess what heads off to print next week?  The 2014 winter issue!  Would you love to see the cover we just revealed?    It's what I love to call "winter fresh!"   And aren't those two little girls the sweetest ever???    



This issue is probably one of our most creative issues ever and full of amazing artwork by our outstanding team.  As I saw the drafts of each article just might have squealed.  Ok in the interest of full disclosure, I squealed…loudly 🙂  Want a funny (not so funny!) behind the scenes story?  Moments after we shot the cover, the woodbackground gave way and fell forward smashing all those pretty glass ornaments.  Clean up in aisle 3!!!  Thankfully the air pushed the layout forward and it was unharmed.  Whew!  Cover layout is by designer Nicole Samuels.

When I see an issue come together it's always a great reminder of this amazing design team we have.  I took a few minutes yesterday to hop on to a few of their blogs and am always blown away by their creativity.  You know I'm the sharing kind of girl, so I just had to share a few that I spotted…and of course a link to their blogs.  If you haven't visited them yet, you may just want to!
