Our Fall issue cover reveal and a May Arts giveaway!

TGIF!!!  It's been an incredibly exciting week here at SCT headquarters.  Wednesday we received the brand new Creative Cards Vol 1 issue in the office and yesterday afternoon our beautiful fall issue landed! 



subscribe here

This inspiring issue is all about fall themes, gratitude, pets, letting go and more! It's already shipping to subscribers this morning so watch your mailboxes next week! And for those that read it online, it will be available next Friday, September 18th!

To celebrate the cover reveal, our friends at May Arts would love to share an opportunity with you and also offer one lucky SCT reader a $25 gift certificate too!  Read on!

From our friends at May Arts:

"Over the years, I have heard the same question quite a lot: I love your ribbon, but where can I find it? And, unfortunately, it has never been an easy question to answer. To locate the exact ribbon you want, without having to buy the whole spool, is a bit like finding a needle in a haystack…until now! Yes, we have finally answered that age old question! Ribbon Resource is proud to announce that we will now be now selling the same May Arts Ribbon you have come to know & love- but in smaller, budget-friendly 5 yard bundles!"

May Arts would also love to offer one lucky SCT reader a $25 gift certificate.  Be sure to click on over and take part in their giveaway and then tell us what your absolute must have favourite ribbon is from their website!  For me it's always their grosgrain.  Could have miles of it…and maybe do!

This gift certificate giveaway will remain open until next Thursday at midnight but the Ribbon Rack giveaway on the May Arts blog is open all month!

Have a wonderful weekend!

  14. Jeanie L September 11, 2015 at 1:28 pm

    I like all their ribbons because I think it depends on the card, so you always need a variety of ribbons. I do really like the adhesive ribbons though because of the practical aspect. Thanks for the giveaway!

  19. Lisa September 11, 2015 at 2:19 pm

    Be still my heart, there is something wrong with how happy a picture of all that great ribbon makes me! I love all ribbon as my very large stash will attest to, but am a sucker for collecting burlap ribbons currently.

  26. snazzy jj September 11, 2015 at 3:30 pm

    Moxie Craftie

  32. LC September 11, 2015 at 4:43 pm

    Awesome fall issue cover! I can’t wait to see all the great ideas and articles inside! I’m totally intrigued by the article titled ‘take note! our list of 10 must-have papercrafting products”. I have learned so much already about fabulous new-to-me products on this blog so I’m sure that there will be lots of great things to add to my evergrowing wish list. I appreciate the breadth of your team’s papercrafting knowledge and experience. Their ideas and hints help inspire my creativity.
    May Arts has so many beautiful ribbons to choose from. It’s difficult to choose just one. I can see myself putting the ‘Olive green jumbo leaves’ to great use on a card with a floral background or flower accents. Thanks for the chance to win this very generous gift certificate and for sharing the news about the ribbon rack giveaway!

  33. shartl September 11, 2015 at 5:42 pm

    I am so happy to hear that May Arts ribbon will be available in smaller amounts online! My favorites are also the grosgrain ones but I love the Chevron striped twill as well! Thanks for the chance to win

  34. Kristen September 11, 2015 at 6:04 pm

    Love MR ribbons!

  35. Karen Lingel September 11, 2015 at 6:16 pm

    I like wide satin ribbon. It’s great for wedding layouts, Christmas cards, sympathy cards, ribbon flowers, tying bows on packages. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  36. Regina Harris September 11, 2015 at 6:57 pm

    The ribbon rack would be a great way to organize my ribbons so they do not get all wrinkled.

  37. Janice September 11, 2015 at 7:04 pm

    Anxiously waiting for the fall issue of SCT to be released. Like the velvet corduroy ribbon from May Arts.

  38. justasiam September 11, 2015 at 7:15 pm

    I have a real weakness for some of that tulle!

  39. Dorina D September 11, 2015 at 7:54 pm

    So tough to choose a favorite but any holiday ribbon would be awesome.

  49. Helen Van Daalen September 12, 2015 at 10:22 am

    I like the 1/2 inch woven burlap. It would be a good ribbon for masculine cards.

  50. Judy September 12, 2015 at 12:41 pm

    Fall is my absolute favorite time of year, sunny warm days and cool nights. Love the new cover and love May Arts ribbon.

  51. Carey Nusbaum September 12, 2015 at 4:09 pm

  52. Brenda September 12, 2015 at 5:38 pm

    LOVE the fall cover and what a fantastic giveaway! I LOVE May Arts ribbon and am so excited about the new place to purchase it – my LSS carried May Arts but unfortunately they closed their doors last week. 🙁 I am in love with the satin cutouts, the twisted burlap and especially the new linen with swirls ribbons!!

  53. C.D. McK September 12, 2015 at 8:22 pm

    Love this fall cover! Cannot wait to get it. I really need the ribbon rack to control all my ribbons. I especially like the printed ribbons!

  54. Tona September 13, 2015 at 12:42 am

    I love May Arts burlap ribbon.
    The cover of the magazine is fabulous.

  55. marylouh September 13, 2015 at 4:05 pm

    I like the ribbons with the different pieces – boats, hearts, etc.
    I can use these in my greeting cards as a part of the embellishment.
    The cover of the fall issue is so pretty – really speaks fall.

  56. JoAnn H September 14, 2015 at 9:48 am

  57. Charmaine September 14, 2015 at 11:12 am

    Looking forward to the download next week! I love all kinds of ribbon, so it is hard to pick just one! I like May Arts grosgrain ribbons and a number of the sheer ribbons, along with the very pretty rosette ribbons which look great on cards – and are easy to mail!

  58. Heather Wehrli September 15, 2015 at 3:33 pm

    I have been looking all over for the mini pom pom ribbon as I purchased a roll in Switzerland many years ago and have only just used it for the inside of a flower but I did not have enough – so now I can finish my lamp shade for my daughter’s room – very happy indeed – looking forward to receiving my SCT magazine – hopefully it will arrive this week.

  59. Sheryll Matheson September 15, 2015 at 10:30 pm

  64. Dorina D September 16, 2015 at 3:12 am

    Love May Arts ribbons, especially the grosgrain, but I have to say, my favorite every year is their holiday ribbons. They always have such cute holiday ribbons like the belt buckles this year and the gorgeous colors. Looking forward to getting the magazine this week.

  65. Kristina (CraftyPaws) September 16, 2015 at 6:56 am

  70. Cheryl September 17, 2015 at 4:02 pm
