Good morning SCT friends! Welcome to Day 2 of our 13th Birthday Celebration. Inspiration, cheer, and prizes, oh my! If you’re joining us for the first time, welcome! Be sure to click HERE to join in on yesterday’s birthday kick off!

Today, design team members Virginia Nebel and Jen Gallacher are here along with our friends from Simon Says Stamp, Pink & Main, Doodlebug Design and Echo Park Paper to help us celebrate! Ready to get started…let’s go!

Happy 13th Birthday Scrapbook & Cards Today! Sending a huge shout out to Catherine (and her family) for their amazing success! Today I’m sharing a page celebrating friendship and community through the Crop & Create events. I’ve scrapbooked some beautiful smiles and memories with the exclusive Crop & Create stamp set!



Many that have attended an event will recognize the beautiful fan wall in the photo booth and I’m sure have snapped a photo or two! You can choose to colour the fans with markers or I just stamp them on patterned papers and then punch them out. There are two fan styles and by using various sized circle (1”, 1.25” and 1.5”) and scallop circle punches you can create many different sized fans.

The journal die cut frame and speech bubbles are created from a free SCT cutting file (Spring 2014 pocket cutting file set) which you can download from the SCT website.


Here is a birthday card using the fun Let’s Party collection by Echo Park. I used the fans from the Crop & Create stamp set to add a little flair to the card.

Supplies List: PATTERN PAPER:Echo Park; STAMPS: SCT Crop& Create; STICKERS: Echo Park, American Crafts


Happy Birthday SCT, wishing you another awesome year ahead!

Jillibean Soup offers several different shaker fillers including beads, wood veneer shapes, sequins, foam balls, and more; but you can also use real candy or other items in your shaker cards. Adding realistic items makes this card just a little bit more special.
