I have a confession to make…spring is most definitely my favourite season. Why do I love spring so much? Two things—Easter and my birthday! Easter has always been at the top of my list of holidays. As a child, I always got a pretty new dress to wear to church (new dresses are my fave!), and then there are those super delicious black jelly beans! And I am most definitely one of those people who loves my birthday. Presents, please!

This year, I have a gift for you: the first 2018 issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today! Here’s a look at what’s in store:

For 2018 we’ve added some new columns to teach and inspire! We’ve brought back the popular Designer Challenge (pg. 14) and added two new columns called Design School (pg. 37) and Product Play (pg. 34).

Our Designer Challenge (pg. 14) pairs the same products with three designers challenging them to create with only those products (and a few other basic supplies). You’re going to love the creative ideas our designers came up with!

Learn the elements of design and more in our new Design School (pg. 37) column. This year we’ll share valuable lessons to give you more confidence as you sit down to create.

In Product Play (pg. 34), we’re excited to focus on the products that are at the heart of our industry. Heidi Swapp’s creative team dreamed up three inspiring letter boards to dress up your home.

If you love background stamps, five fabulous stampers will give you fantastic ideas for making the most of them in our newly expanded Creative Cards (pg. 51). Their designs will (seriously) blow you away.

I bet you’re excited to turn the page! Breathe in the fresh air of the spring 2018 issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today.
