  1. Tammy Gill September 21, 2018 at 2:23 pm

    Hello Catherine. Thank you for the contest. I am asking for a subscription for Christmas. Fingers crossed! What I love about the magazine besides the beautiful picture and inspiration, is the Page Maps section! It really helps to inspire some ideas and keep me from the same old layout. Would love, love, love a free issue for me and my bestie!

  2. Claudia September 21, 2018 at 2:23 pm

    Oh, I’d love to create together with my friend Jenny who had an accident and is presently wheelchair-bound. Thanks for a chance to win!

  3. CJS September 21, 2018 at 2:41 pm

    The whole magazine is scrumptious, but I really love the 3 T’s section!

  4. Janice Chandonnet September 21, 2018 at 2:49 pm

    Hi Catherine,
    Was so excited when I discovered your magazine. There is nothing like holding a copy in your hands. I really love the top quality of the magazine – the size, thickness of pages, and all of the inspiration it provides. It always inspires! I really enjoy seeing the new products offered and all of the ideas and projects, all on beautiful colored pages. Would love the newest copy for my daughter and I.💕

  5. Glenda Thorne September 21, 2018 at 3:04 pm

    Awesome give a way as usual. I would love to give a copy to our daughter who inspired me to start scrapping 13 years ago. Love the whole magazine but enjoy the Pagemaps sketches. Thanks for being you, SCT!

  6. Dorothy Duran September 21, 2018 at 3:07 pm

    Love the magazine…there are so few good ones available. Thanks!!!

  7. Jan C. September 21, 2018 at 3:13 pm

    Hi Catherine,
    Was so excited when I discovered your magazine! I love the size, and quality of the magazine – nice thick pages and very inspirational. There is nothing like holding a copy in your hands! Love the presentation of new products, projects, and ideas! Would love the newest copy for my daughter and I.💕

  8. Pam Sohan September 21, 2018 at 3:14 pm

    Love the whole magazine! But the Take 2 & 3 articles and the 3Is section are my favorite.

  9. Heather Boswall September 21, 2018 at 3:24 pm

    Front to Back! My favourite part of the magazine is 1. the colours, 2. the paper thickness, and 3. the double-page layouts!

  10. Cndy Thick September 21, 2018 at 3:30 pm

    I love looking at the beautiful scrapbook pages and the PageMap sketches. I also start from the back and work forward. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  11. Regina Harris September 21, 2018 at 3:52 pm

    I savor every page but particularly like the sketches so I have a recipe for a page. I look through them based on the number and size of photos for a page.

  12. Carol Bryan September 21, 2018 at 4:22 pm

    I love this magazine! It gives me so many ideas an truly gets me motivated! Thank you and your crew!

  13. Christine Kiehl September 21, 2018 at 4:58 pm

    Yes! I read every little thing as the product ads are just as exciting as all the projets and step by steps! My favorite part ARE the how to’s and directions as I am still learning! Thanks for the great download!!

  14. Alma Dirpaul September 21, 2018 at 5:11 pm

    Since I don’t Scrapbook anymore, I like anything to do with cards.

  15. RPomeroy September 21, 2018 at 5:21 pm

    Is there a favorite? I guess I am a sucker for sketches and how to change them up to work in different ways. I read it front to back. Maybe I should try it the other way?

  16. Laura MacCumber September 21, 2018 at 5:30 pm

    Omg … it’s so hard to pick my favourite part of the magazine as I LOVE it all. I received it on Tuesday and have read it front to back everyday. You are not alone Catherine 🙂 I can’t seem to get enough of it! I would have to say my favourite part is the essentials – 10 most wanted – starting on page 11. Would love my BFF Vicki to receive a copy. Once again, you all did a great job putting the fall issue together – Thank you!,

  17. Nylene September 21, 2018 at 5:38 pm

    I read front to back and read every word. Impossible to pick a favorite part. I love it all and wish it were monthly.

  18. Lisa September 21, 2018 at 5:42 pm

    Favourite? Can we say the whole thing? I love to pour over everything even the ads as I love to see the new stuff. I always like the take 2 and 3 and the designer challenges where we see people use the same products differently. I love getting new ideas for doing cards and layouts and using my supplies. I also liked the Most wanted section with the new products. Who doesn’t like to see new trends and products? Shopping is a key part of this hobby is it not? Sorry though, would love to have your back but I read it front to back. You do you though nothing wrong with that 🙂

  19. Jean Marmo September 21, 2018 at 5:54 pm

    Yes – front to back! Love the sketches and how people use them! Thanks for such a great magazine filled with inspiration!

  20. Lori A. Geise September 21, 2018 at 6:19 pm

    I love that you still offer an actual hard copy of your magazine. I love to actually physically hold it in my hands so I can read it cover to cover. Usually more than once.

  21. lisakrewenka September 21, 2018 at 6:26 pm

    I read the magazine front to back, every page and advertisement. Love the sketches as they are so inspiring. I may need to go to Barnes and Noble and pick of a physical magazine, then I can read while waiting on things.

    • lisakrewenka September 21, 2018 at 6:27 pm

      I would love to share the magazine with my sister. She loves to craft also.

  22. Lynne Haflett September 21, 2018 at 6:30 pm

    I read every issue I get cover to cover, earmarking pages and then storing it right at my scrapbooking table. I like the hard copy a whole lot better than digital, just because…

  23. Susan H September 21, 2018 at 6:46 pm

    I love reading your magazine from cover to cover! So many inspirations and so little time.
    Page maps are awesome and I think that’s a favorite of mine.
    I also keep past copies forever as a reference.

  24. jazzie.rollins September 21, 2018 at 6:48 pm

    Love having it in my hands! The colors are beautiful and the ideas shared between the covers are very inspiring. I love checking out the scrapbooking store listings to see what’s new. Please dont ever stop publishing such a great magazine.

  25. Cara Feeney September 21, 2018 at 7:32 pm

    My favorite part of the SCT magazine is Takes 2 & 3. I really don’t know how you choose the cover as they all are so beautiful! I’m not like you, I read it front to back.

  26. Frances September 21, 2018 at 7:40 pm

    I love this magazine! It gives me so many ideas with all the sketches and fall layouts, great inspiration! Love to read it both ways front to back and viceversa. Thanks!

  27. Greta H September 21, 2018 at 8:29 pm

    I’d love to win a hard copy of this issue & one for my friend, Rosemary. We both lament the loss of so many hard copy magazines. It’s very generous that you provide a free on-line issue, but for me there’s nothing like a hard copy! Yes, I read it cover to cover. Being a cardmaker–I especially love the cards.

  28. Alison C September 21, 2018 at 8:35 pm

    My favorite is the 10 most wanted. I don’t have a lss any more so that article keeps me up to date with what is new. I read the magazine entirely. I usually jump all around and don’t go from front to back.

  29. Mel H September 21, 2018 at 9:13 pm

    I love the sketches and all of the inspiring layouts.

  30. Nina Oelke September 21, 2018 at 9:42 pm

    You are not alone, I read all magazines from back to front! The layouts are my favorite parts of the magazine. They provide so much inspiration. But I also love to learn about the new products on the market. So I do enjoy those ads. ❤️

  31. Karen Lingel September 21, 2018 at 9:46 pm

    My favorite part of the magazine is DOUBLE-PAGE layouts! Love to see those. I’d love to see, for instance, someone take a 1-page sketch and create a double-page layout of it. That would be a useful skill for me to learn. Thanks for the opportunity to win. (And my friend Frances thanks you too.)

  32. janet sisk September 21, 2018 at 11:03 pm

    Love the whole issue, but especially the cards. I make cards, but I can pull inspiration from page layouts, too. Thanks for all the tips and ideas. I would love to share a copy with my scrappy friend, Debbie. I recently moved to another state and miss her so much. She was my stamp/scrap roommate twice a year for about 7 years! Thanks again.

  33. Meghan Kennihan September 21, 2018 at 11:06 pm

    Don’t make me pick a favorite! The whole magazine is amazing back to front! I really love the 3 T’s section!

  34. Jeanette Y September 22, 2018 at 1:00 am

    Love your magazine which I usually read front to back. Your magazine is a wonderful source of information. Love Pagemaps for the great sketches!

  35. Denise Bryant September 22, 2018 at 2:31 am

    Love this beautiful cover! Gorgeous fall colors!
    I often read a magazine back to front! My favorite part is seeing the cards ideas!
    I’d share with my stamping pal, Laura!

  36. Ann Laforet September 22, 2018 at 6:16 am

    I like to look front to back, you never know what you will learn so I don’t want to miss out. I like the seeing the cards & the tips,tricks & techniques section. Thanks for the great magazine 🙂

  37. Deepa Lakshman September 22, 2018 at 7:04 am

    As soon as the new issue comes up, I am engrossed with my IPad the whole day looking keenly into every single detail. I like the readers contributions and also love the sketches. Having a paper copy is the best coz then I don’t have to look at a screen all the time.

  38. Tish Schneider September 22, 2018 at 7:10 am

    I love your magazine. And like another person commented, it’s very generous of you to offer it as a free download, but there’s nothing like holding the printed copy in hand. Love every part of it but the sketches and double page layouts are my fav. My scrappy friend, Karla, and I would love to win a copy!

  39. Christine September 22, 2018 at 1:09 pm

    I read it front to back the first time but then I like to read it back to front the second time! Don’t ask me why!
    It’s hard to pick a favourite part of the magazine but I always enjoy the gallery of layouts submitted by readers. My favourite scrapbooking buddy is Melissa and I’d love to win a copy of the magazine for both of us.

  40. Arianna Barbara September 22, 2018 at 2:39 pm

    Wow! I use to read the online version. I love the sketches. I would love to win a copy for me and my crafty friend Barbara.

  41. Beneta Brown September 22, 2018 at 3:25 pm

    I love looking at the 10 most wanted article. It is always fun to see the new items out there that are available.

  42. Mary Holshouser September 22, 2018 at 5:00 pm

    10 Most Wanted.
    I love to keep up with what’s new (and usually feel like
    I have to have it – so it’s good to get a review).
    The magazine is wonderful. I start at the front
    and work towards the back. thanks for
    offering a copy of the newest edition.

  43. Laurie Black September 22, 2018 at 5:42 pm

    The cover on this issue is gorgeous. Thank you for generously offering the free download every issue! I love seeing the new products, the inspiration and great sketches, but my favorite part is 3Ts.

  44. Marilyn Erickson September 23, 2018 at 8:13 am

    I always look forward to the release of a new issue, I’m excited to sit down and read cover to cover! I love the quality of this publication, the motivation and creativity I see in each issue. Thank you for offering such a great giveaway!

  45. Cathy September 23, 2018 at 10:55 am

    Love the magazine. I was buying for a craft a while ago. They went out of business that is where I got my from. Glad to see it back. I found a article in one of my old books on how to color bads I loved that. I have one special friend that I know who I would share this with. She is always willing to help me. Also going out of her way. I don’t drive so when she has a craft day she is willing to pick me and my mom up then bring us back. Also sharing all her crafts things with us so I don’t have to buy everyone. Thanks

  46. Cindy P. September 23, 2018 at 12:53 pm

    Thanks for the chance to win! Front to back!! My favourite part of the magazine is the 3Ts.

  47. Kirsty Vittetoe September 23, 2018 at 1:42 pm

    I find my inspiration from this fabulous magazine! And I read from from to back! : )

  48. Katherine Wallis September 23, 2018 at 8:35 pm

    Sadly I have let my subscription lapse as family responsibilities have reduced my scrapbooking time. However, I just retired and will now have more time. I always relied on the page maps and read it cover to cover. Still have all the issues. I would share with my friend Robin who is my retreat buddy…

  49. Brenda September 23, 2018 at 8:43 pm

    I always read it front to back and pretty much the minute it arrives in my mailbox! I love everything in it but my favorite is always the sketches and seeing what the different designers do with the same products. I can’t wait til this issue arrives in my mailbox! I would love to give my friend Jodie a copy, we have been scrapbooking besties for over 10 years and if I won since I already get a copy I would give the other copy to another scrappy friend (Camille)

  50. Shelley Prain September 24, 2018 at 9:03 am

    I always look forward to each issue for inspiration. My favourite is the sketches and tips n’ tricks sections.

  51. Jennifer Davis September 24, 2018 at 11:00 am

    I love all the visuals and all the project photos! Seriously gets me moving to create! Thanks for the fun giveaway and as always, for all of the inspiration your publication provides.

    Jen in Wisconsin

  52. Lynne Jardine September 24, 2018 at 4:29 pm

    Love it all, so much inspiration! I’m a fan of sketches, so the page maps section is probably my fave 🙂

  53. Penny Hanuszak September 25, 2018 at 12:13 am

    Such a great magazine! It’s not hard to find inspiration within It’s pages. I’m a cover to cover reader and that includes each and every ad and picture…don’t want to miss a thing. What grabs me every time are your fantastic covers…. wow they grabs my attention and invite me in! Luv, luv, luv this magazine!

  54. Lisascreativeniche September 25, 2018 at 9:48 pm

    I always love seeing the three different ways one layout is created for the cover, I like seeing how different people saw how to use the same things differently.

  55. e.breen September 27, 2018 at 12:09 am

    I always love any information/ideas about card making in this magazine.
    I always read magazines from back to front. I believe it is easier that way because I am right-handed.

  56. Shannon Yates September 28, 2018 at 5:28 pm

    My favourite section is the 3I’s! I use to get the paper copy and then started reading it my iPad. I much prefer the paper copy and I am sure one of my daughters will to. Thanks kindly!

  57. BarbMac Vt September 28, 2018 at 10:02 pm

    My favorite part of your magazine is that it is a PRINTED magazine! I love the feel of it in my hands and the scent of it in my nose!
    My 50th Birthday is October 4th and I would be tickled pink if I won this! TFS!

  58. Karla Yungwirth September 29, 2018 at 10:23 am

    Thanks so much for all the work you put into making this amazing magazine! I love the Designer Challenge and seeing how each designer creates something different with their supplies. Of course, I read it cover to cover!

  59. Anastasia M. September 30, 2018 at 4:54 pm

    3Ts is my fav part, always! I’d share with my friend Polina.

  60. DUMONTIER Marjorie October 1, 2018 at 4:28 pm

    Thanks for the opportunity to win this new issue ! Love, Marjorie

  61. Giorgia Rossini October 2, 2018 at 1:54 am

    I was so lucky to receive one of past issues for winning a challenge here – I hope to be lucky again.
    I love the sturdy pages and quality of the projects.

  62. lee October 4, 2018 at 10:50 am

    I love this magazine! Such inspriration! Especially the Take 2 and 3 articles.

  63. Pat McMullin October 8, 2018 at 1:12 am

    What a beautiful issue! I would love to share it with my daughter that also loves to scrapbook.
