Happy Magazine Monday, friends!

Have you had the chance to curl up with the Fall 2018 issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today?  It’s always so exciting to think that all over the world YOU are reading and enjoying it! And we have SO MUCH FUN putting it together for you.

Today I want to give you a little peek into the issue and share with you…


  1. Storytelling

Our design team dug deep and told fantastic stories about their families! While I love ALL of the stories they came up with, I was particularly struck with the fascinating story of Lisa Dickinson’s grandparents’ elopement that she shared in this layout.

  1. Stencil savvy

Jen Gallacher shared some awesome ways to uses stencils in our Product Play column, and this gorgeous fall frame makes my heart skip more than one beat!

  1. Design School

Good design makes all the difference when something just doesn’t feel “right” in your designs, so I truly enjoy our ability to teach design skills to make it right. Jen Schow’s pretty layout teaches an essential design skill called the psychic line. Check out the article for more.

  1. Reader submissions

As a former teacher of teens, I love seeing layouts about them. And did you see how Monique Liedtke stitched the letters in her title? WOW! You can see Monique’s layout and lots of other fantastic fall-inspired projects in the inspiration gallery.
