Celebrate the weekend with a giveaway!

Celebrate the weekend with a giveaway!

Happy Friday!

While Catherine is away traveling, I get to hold down the SCT fort and give some great stuff away! I always enjoy the chance to jump in and visit with all of our online readers, and since it has been a while since I hosted a giveaway on the SCT blog and I am super excited to be here. I wonder what I will be giving away.  You will have to keep reading to see what I am planning for you. 

This weekend, Catherine and the Crop & Create team are in beautiful Moncton, New Brunswick hosting a three day event for our friends in eastern Canada. Don't these ladies look like they would be a ton of fun to spend a full weekend with. Of course they are! I can only imagine what they are doing right now!


And, for those of you who have not attended a Crop & Create event yet this year, we have some exciting new surprises for you, including ….

No peeking

No peeking! I wonder what these little goodies could be?

So, I have looked through the office and want to give away something that I love and that I know many of you will love as well. First let me say, that I am not a card maker. I do however enjoy receiving handmade cards and I love to give handmade cards. I have therefore decided to give away some card making inspiration. These two special issues include many amazing cards, sketches, free cut files and yes, lots of great techniques!


One lucky SCT reader will receive a copy of both Creative Cards Vol. 1 as well as CardMaps Vol. 4. Sound good? I think so! For an opportunity to win these amazing special issues, please leave a comment below by Thursday, April 14! Good luck!  

We will also be announcing all of the winners from our 10th Birthday Celebration on the blog next week. Check back to see if you are a winner!

Until then, have a fabulous weekend and remember to Get Crafty!

~ Jen
