When the weather starts to get cooler and the leaves begin to fall, I always think of my mom. Orange was her favourite colour, and autumn was her favourite season, and time spent with family was one of the things she cherished most. Over the years she gathered boxes and boxes full of family photos that are rich with history and love, and I am so thankful to be a part of this industry where memory-keeping and family history are so important. We hope that this issue of SCT fills you with gratitude for the many blessings that fill your lives!
We can’t wait for you to see the beautiful designs just waiting to be dogeared and emulated. Let’s take a look at some of the things you’ll find in the pages of this edition of Scrapbook & Cards Today:
There’s something about fall that ignites our creativity, don’t you agree? Our Handmade Embellishments (pg. 21) article will spark your desire to make something unique and extra special on your next design. We’re adding handmade touches in our autumn-themed designs and sharing steps to create some of the embellishments you’ll see.
When you’re stuck in a creative rut, you can always find inspiration in our PageMaps (pg. 29) article! Not only do we provide you with totally free sketches that you can use, you can check out how four designers have interpreted four different PageMaps.
If you’re like me, you like organizing your craft room as much as you love creating. If that’s the case, you’ll go gaga for our Product Play (pg. 34) article! We’re giving you a peek into Vicki Boutin’s amazing studio, and you’re going to love the colourful haven she’s created. So inspiring!
So let’s get to it! Grab a cup of cider and nestle into your easy chair, because it’s time to enjoy the fall 2019 issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today!
