It’s hard to believe, but before you know it, summer will be here! Even though it’s only February and our minds are on Valentine’s Day and Easter, Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine is getting excited thinking about our next issue, and we’re about to begin work on our Summer 2018 issue!

Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine is the leading paper craft publication and read in 120 countries.

Scrapbook & Cards Today’s sketches are always inspiring and this one is no exception.  Download the sketch here, use it to create a scrapbook page and then submit it to us for possible publication. We encourage you to be creative with this sketch. Play with embellishments, mix up patterned papers, flip it, or copy the design exactly — it’s simply a blueprint to get your ideas flowing! This is for our summer issue, so we ask that you keep seasonality in mind (as outlined in the themes above) when creating.
