Magazine Monday with Editor-in-Chief Susan!

Happy Magazine Monday, my SCT friends!

If you’re one of our readers in Canada or the United States, you just might be celebrating Labour Day (or Labor Day for our US friends). While it’s a day to commemorate the working class, for many of us it heralds the last long weekend of summer. I’m not going to lie — I’m sad to see summer go, but I’m excited that later this month you’ll have your hot little hands on the Fall 2017 issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today!

While the content you’ll see has a distinctly autumn feel that you’ll fall in love with, you might be surprised to know that we’ve been working on this beauty for a LONG time! I scrolled back in my emails and found evidence of fall issue planning dating all the way back to the month of May!

Yes, magazine time can be confusing. I spent my weekends by the pool in blistering hot 100+ degree temperatures, and my weekdays were spent writing about cozy fall projects. So when the big box stores pull out the holiday décor, I fully understand.

In July, Catherine and I attended the Mixed Media Event in Salt Lake City, UT (my home base), and there we connected with manufacturers and saw what’s new and hot. You’re gonna love it! We loved being able to connect with creative friends, too, and of course, when Vicki Boutin is one of the gang, there’s bound to be one of her famous selfies!

So what’s in store in the Fall issue? Here are a few things you can look forward to:

  • Techniques for stamp masking and using reactive tissue paper.
  • Design tips for using repetition.
  • Clever uses for your manual dies and huge embellishment stash.
  • Ideas for layouts that don’t feature your children.
  • Fun sketches, online freebies, fabulous reader inspiration, and so much more!!

Today I want to share a sneak look at what’s in store!
