Hello SCT friends!  We have a special treat for you today so we're glad you're here!  Recently we had the pleasure of spending a weekend with Ali Edwards at Crop & Create Markham. Her philosophy to memory keeping is about keeping it authentic and keeping it simple.  She is real and her way of teaching is amazingly insightful.  "All stories are worth telling" she says and we could not agree more. Ali has graciously offered a spot in her brand new workshop "Type" to one lucky SCT reader!


"Join Ali Edwards for a 12-week investigation into working with type in memory keeping projects. Focus in this workshop is on finding fun ways to incorporate and emphasize type (letter stickers, letter stamps, fonts, and handwriting) to get your stories told. Watch the video HERE and check out the schedule for a look at the specific topics covered over the 12-weeks. 

What you'll learn:

  • The basics of type: kerning, choosing, pairing, contrast, etc.
  • Composing paragraphs: what to keep in mind, watch out for, etc. 
  • How type can support the stories you want to tell
  • What rules to break and which ones I think are worth following
  • Fun, creative ideas for playing with type
  • Tips and suggestions for hand-lettering
  • Adding type and alphabets directly to photos (both digitally and with physical products)"

Sounds like an amazing class!  For an opportunity to win a spot in Ali's "Type" class, be sure to leave a comment below by Thursday, April 9th!  Winner will be announced on Friday, April 10th.

But wait, there's more.  Ali has also offered a 20% discount on this class until April 6th so be sure to sign up before then HERE.  If you are the winner of today's giveaway, your class fee will be refunded.

More great news too.  Ali and Katie will be joining us at Crop & Create Abbotsford, BC on April 16-17, 2016!  More details to follow!

Wishing all our readers a wonderful Easter weekend!  Will you be running away from the chocolate or will you be running to the chocolate? Or maybe a little bit of both!

Tomorrow is Stampin' Up! Saturday and on Sunday we will announce all the winners of our 9th birthday celebration.  You can still enter all the giveaways until tomorrow at noon by starting HERE.  Huge prizes so be sure to enter each day!
