TGIF friends!  Take a deep breath and get ready to plunge in to a great weekend!  We have just finished packing up and are heading out to set up at ScrapFest in Kitchener, Ontario.  If you are planning on attending, we hope you'll stop by our booth and say "hello!"  

We are also excited today to share some happy news and announce a new SCT partner!  Please give a warm welcome to our friends at Echo Park and Carta Bella!  With bright happy colours and beautiful patterns and designs, it is a go-to company that we welcome to the SCT family!  Of course, they wanted to join us in style and offer one more birthday gift to you!  In fact, in true Echo Park style, they have gone one step further and have offered TWO birthday prize collections – Birthday Wishes Boy and Birthday Wishes Girl designed by Alisha Gordon!



"Getting ready to celebrate a birthday or party? Echo Park has just released our newest Birthday Wishes Collections! Two collections for boys or girls. Includes 6 sheets double sided, alphabet and a element sticker with solids to match."

Can you just imagine creating with these collections?  For any opportunity to win one of these collections, please leave us a note below and tell us your favourite birthday memory!  How fun to hear what made you smile on your birthday!  Be sure to leave a note below by Thursday, April 16 at 6:00 p.m. EST.  Good luck!

We would also love it if you could hop on over to Echo Park's facebook page and give them a wave, a "welcome to SCT! and a "thank you" for such great prizes today!  We've told them that SCT readers are loud and proud so leave a comment if you can!  

We also gave lots of prizes away over the last week and we have some winners to announce!!!

I would love to win a spot in the class – Ali is such an amazing person, and I'd love to learn how to use type/fonts/incorporate more journaling in my PL spreads 🙂  Posted by: Michelle C. | April 05, 2015 at 08:33 AM
