It's our second annual "partner celebration" for the month of August! We have 31 partners and 31 days. Sounds pretty perfect! Join us each day in the month of August for not only our regular blog content but for giveaways each and every day! The magazine business is a tricky one to navigate these days and where so many magazines have closed their doors, we are fortunate to have not only amazing reader support (THANK YOU!) and a great team (LOVE THEM!) but we also have incredible industry support. This month we are going to share who our partners are, they are going to share a giveaway (AWESOME!) and each day we are going to share all the links to where you can find them. We hope you'll continue to support our partners which means we can continue to bring all that we do at Scrapbook & Cards Today to you! 

But first, let's take a selfie! No, just kidding. Today we have another amazing video from designer Tracy Banks (aka Mercy Tiara) in our "Find Your Mojo" series. Take a look…


In this "Find Your Mojo" video, the prompt Tracy offers is to start with a photo strip! Tracy will share not only how to use them as a starting point but also how to print them! Tracy uses the Millie & June line from Fancy Pants designs which are beautiful! Join Tracy as she shares her process from start to finish.



To kick off our Partner Celebration we want to celebrate our friends at Close To My Heart and the launch of their brand new 2016-2017 Annual Inspirations Idea Book TODAY! We are not going to lie when we visited the Close To My Heart offices a few weeks ago, we were pretty excited to see it! It's filled with all that you've come to expect from Close To My Heart and so much more. From your basic fundamentals for papercrafting, to trendy products, stamps, inks, organization…oh my! Spend a little time creating a wish list like we did!

These products make completing cohesive projects easier than ever before! And our friends at Close to My Heart would love to give away this bundle to one lucky reader!
