Some fun things coming your way…and of course, a giveaway!

Some fun things coming your way…and of course, a giveaway!

Good morning SCT friends!  This is one of my favourite parts of the day when I get to sit down and reach out to you through this blog.  Whether it's sharing great projects from our team, introducing some guest designers and their work to you or my personal favourite is Friday when we can end the week with a giveaway!  

Before we get to the giveaway, I thought I would take a minute (or five!) to share some exciting things with you and because I love lists, I'm going to do in list form πŸ™‚    

  • If you are on Facebook then you may have seen that we're about 250 fans away from 100,000.  Yes, I really did just type 100,000!  That is a huge number that makes me smile every time I see it.  But want the great part here?  We have not one but TWO big prizes to give away when we hit 100,000.  (I just typed that number again and smiled!!!)  BIG PRIZES!  So, if you're on Facebook but have not followed us yet, it may be a great time to do that here!
  • In just 7 weeks and with the release of our spring issue (March 20), SCT magazine will turn 9.  NINE!  When we launched what we thought would be a little regional publication in March, 2006 we had no idea it would be international by the next issue.  Blessed and humbled are the words that come to mind.  A very talented design team, supportive industry partners, fabulous retailers that distribute SCT and of course, YOU…our incredible readers is what made that happen.  It is why we could not let this birthday go by without doing something really special.  I'm not going to share what it is just yet but mark your calenders for March 21-29!  It's going to be pretty awesome!
  • "Are we a print magazine?"  That is a question we get often these days and the answer is YES!  "Do we have plans to go ONLY digital?"  is another question we often get and the answer is NO!  I won't lie.  We love paper, we love ink, we love the creative process of bringing each issue to life four times a year.  While we do have a digital edition of each issue that you can download for free anytime, we will always have a print edition that you can subscribe to or pick up in a local scrapbook store.  For subscribers it comes in a pretty white envelope right to your door.  Subscription is for postage only friends so if you would like to order a subscription, you can do that HERE.  And, just know we print on really high quality paper that you're going to fall in love with.  If you're a store owner, we have a great distribution program, just contact me at catherine@scrapbookandcards.com for information.

SCT_winter_2014_cover_sm

  • On that note, why don't we get to today's giveaway which is not one, not two but THREE copies of our newest winter issue!  Just leave a comment below by February 5th and you know what I'd like to know?  What is your favourite part of each issue?  Is it a certain article?  Overall how-tos and information from our team?  The feel of the paper and smell of the ink?  We would love to hear what you love about SCT.  And by the way, we are going to use some of those comments on our website!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend friends!  We are very busy preparing for Crop & Create Markham which is just four weeks away!  Imagine Ali Edwards, Doodlebug, Vicki Boutin and Virginia Nebel all under one roof!  After that is Crop & Create Moncton and then Winnipeg!  And between all those events, we will be at ScrapFest and Creativ Festival.  Five events in 8 weeks…I call that a happy spring!

    I love all the inspiration…going through it quickly the first time and dog-earring pages…then going through again slowly. and again, and again πŸ™‚

  2. Shel Anderson January 30, 2015 at 10:11 am

    OF COURSE THE INSPIRATION IS A GIVEN….BUT MY FAVORITE PART OF EACH ISSUE IS SEEING THE WAY THE PAGE DESIGNERS USE ITEMS IN DIFFERENT WAYS THAN YOU WOULD THINK TO USE THEM YOURSELF. I THINK THAT IS COOL.

  3. Heather H. January 30, 2015 at 10:12 am

    From the first issue, SCT has been my favourite go to scrapbook magazine. I can’t wait to get each new issue and see all of the yummy inspiration!

  4. Gisele January 30, 2015 at 10:21 am

    Holy smokes, you are HOT!!!
    Thanks for the great magazine, I am always going from cover to cover several times looking at all th e eye candy and trying some sketches or scraplifting not to mention finding out was is in!! And new!!!

  5. Jeanne B January 30, 2015 at 10:25 am

    There isn’t just one thing I love about this magazine, it’s all good!

  6. diana January 30, 2015 at 10:35 am

    My favourite part is the cover when I first get my copy. Just looking at the cover makes me anticipate all the inspiration that I know will be inside. πŸ˜‰

  7. Sheri M January 30, 2015 at 10:39 am

    Your magazine is the best scrapbooking magazine I’ve ever come across. The photography is beautiful and ideas are so creative. There is so much inspiration in your pages, but the first section I like to check out is the Colour Suite, always fun!

  8. Iris Soscia January 30, 2015 at 10:40 am

    I love seeing what other crafters are making and learning what is trending. So much beautiful eye candy.

  9. MaryAnn N. January 30, 2015 at 10:42 am

    I also like the cover and choosing if I like one of the other samples made for the cover better. Sometimes I do and sometimes like your choice. I love a paper magazine and SCT is the best of the best.

  10. Tracy Wallace January 30, 2015 at 10:52 am

    I like the downloads and Pocket style sections – thanks!

  11. Judy Stiles January 30, 2015 at 10:58 am

    I can’t just pick one thing I love about this magazine … because I LOVE IT ALL! The inspiration I gather from it is priceless!

  12. Jennifer S. January 30, 2015 at 10:59 am

    I love the how to’s but I really just love seeing all the layouts and cards. Inspiration can come from anywhere.

  13. Betty-Ann January 30, 2015 at 11:06 am

    SCT is a terrific magazine…the quality (Paper! Colour!) is what hooked me from day one almost 9 years ago!

  14. Myra January 30, 2015 at 11:07 am

    It is the greatest mag! I love it all especially new DIY techniques.

  15. Roxanna January 30, 2015 at 11:13 am

    I would love to win one of your magazines, I don’t think I have ever seen your magazines. I use to subscribe to all the scrapbook magazines until they went away or digital. I will have to look for your magazine the next time I am at a store. Thanks for the chance to win of the magazines.

  16. Judy January 30, 2015 at 11:18 am

    Besides being the best of everything, it just wouldn’t cut it if I couldn’t hold it in my hot little hands. I, too, have almost 9 years worth of your magazines and refer to them time and again.
    Keep up the good work and keep them coming.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

  17. Sheila January 30, 2015 at 11:20 am

    This may sound stupid but I always try and scrap lift your front cover. You always such fun, easy and enabling ideas. LOL

  18. Ange January 30, 2015 at 11:26 am

    I would love a copy! I’ve looked at the magazine racks in stores but haven’t found any scrapbook mags for a long time. I’d love to check yours out!

  19. Mary Holshouser January 30, 2015 at 11:34 am

    As a card maker I enjoy looking at the pages and figuring out how I can incorporate the designs into my cards.

  20. Cheryl Sager January 30, 2015 at 11:36 am

    I rip open the envelope and flip through the pages upon arrival. I then sit and slowly savor every word, every photo . . . ALL OF IT!! (and I love that I can turn the pages – – no digital for this girl!)

  21. Tracey Gallacher January 30, 2015 at 11:54 am

    I love the inspiration, seeing the new products and some ideas on how to use them!

  22. Debbie Lou January 30, 2015 at 11:57 am

    Inspiration is my number 1 pick. Love the DIY too!

  23. Sue D January 30, 2015 at 11:59 am

    My fave part is all the creative inspiration.

  24. theCook January 30, 2015 at 12:16 pm

    I love the inspiration. Love going through the pages quickly, picking up layouts and colors, then diving into on specific page for the actual text, especially when there are tutorials.

  25. Tricia January 30, 2015 at 12:27 pm

    I love all the different techniques. People are so creative and I love to look at all the layouts etc.

  26. Kailash January 30, 2015 at 12:39 pm

    The magazine has the inspiration for my creative juices to flow. The articles on different techniques, ideas are also just so helpful:-). Thanks for sharing projects that are simply amazing!!!

  27. Margaret Roberts January 30, 2015 at 12:49 pm

    I’ve just started my subscription and haven’t received any issues yet, but I know I will love each and every part! Just to hold a real print magazine in my hands and look at the gorgeous pictures will be so much inspiration. I know I could have it for free online, but – call me old-fashioned – I need the real thing!

  28. Vicki Smith January 30, 2015 at 1:05 pm

    I’ve never had the pleasure of receiving a copy of your magazine as I’m on a tight budget but since magazines have been my addiction for a LONG time I would love to win this prize and experience it.

  29. Sandy Lewis January 30, 2015 at 1:09 pm

    I love the 3 T’s. My favorite of everything is the 3 designers that use the same products to make a layout. I learn so much and am inspired when I read your magazine. Thank you for publishing – thank you for making it free online and thank you for the chance to win!

  30. cindy r January 30, 2015 at 1:16 pm

    Just really love to unplug and hold the magazine and turn pages, oohing and aahing…..

  31. debra January 30, 2015 at 1:17 pm

    I quickly peruse the mag then I go back slowly and mark up for scrapbook and embellishment ideas, including cards.

  32. Laura Turcotte January 30, 2015 at 1:29 pm

    I am so happy to read this post! I love your magazine, and I love the fact is an actual print/paper mag! So rare these days!
    Congrats on being 9!!!! Love SCT!

  33. bernice January 30, 2015 at 1:32 pm

    I enjoy checking out the layouts and getting ideas from them!

  34. barbara macaskill January 30, 2015 at 1:44 pm

    The inspiration and all of the amazing tips, tricks and sneak peeks are what I look forward to the most!! Would love a copy to share with friends also!

  35. bunnyfreak January 30, 2015 at 1:48 pm

    Never had a paper copy. Love the sketches.

  36. Tona January 30, 2015 at 1:57 pm

    I love learning about new techniques & just get all around inspired while reading the magazine. Up to this point I have only looked at the magazine digitally. I would love to be able to hold one in my hands.

  37. Nancy L. January 30, 2015 at 1:59 pm

    When I get a chance to purchase it, it’s EVERYTHING! Love the props you use!

  38. Christine Kiehl January 30, 2015 at 2:01 pm

    Wow! So many “likes” and almost NINE! Congrats! Love all the inspiring shares, projects and crafters! And of course the PRINT magazine!!

  39. Pia Larsen January 30, 2015 at 2:05 pm

    New trends are what I find most interesting in your wonderful Magazine

  40. Lauri January 30, 2015 at 2:10 pm

    My favourite things are the bonus card stitches, the Colour Suite, and anything by Ali Edwards. It’s wonderful that I can access this magazine online anytime I want, love that convenience.

  41. Cammi Engelhard January 30, 2015 at 2:20 pm

    I have been a scrapbooker and card maker for years, and subscribed to many magazines, all who went away. I LOVE your magazine, and fall even more in love every time your print issue arrives. To me, the best way to find inspiration is to leaf through my past issues. Please keep publishing your magazine and mailing it to us!

  42. D Brown January 30, 2015 at 2:22 pm

    I love the free cut files and tips/tricks of using products and tools. I also enjoy the “me” time that I take to flip through the pages…sometimes I’m not even reading….just feeling that great paper and sipping my tea.
    My least favorite part is that I get caught up reading the journalling on scrapbook pages…lol

  43. terriavidreader January 30, 2015 at 2:37 pm

    I love all the tutorials and directions to make my own. Thanks for a chance to win too.

  44. Cheryl January 30, 2015 at 2:47 pm

    I actually just love the fact that the magazine is Canadian and therefore the products are ones I can actually purchase in Canada.

  45. Velma Garcia January 30, 2015 at 2:48 pm

    I love going back to print magazines time and time again for inspiration. I have some craft magazines from the 1970’s that I still look at for ideas and inspiration!

  46. RPomeroy January 30, 2015 at 2:57 pm

    I love that you are still a print magazine. I find so much more inspiration in a paper product than in an image on my computer. I don’t know what the difference is, but I can tell that I am more inspired by paper than pixels. I am also glad that I can find you online, too.

  47. Lynne G January 30, 2015 at 2:58 pm

    Always love your magazine and look forward to scraplifting all the amazing ideas inside. Would love to win a paper copy!!!!!! Thanks for the chance to win and I’m sure you will reach 100, 000 followers soon and what a triumph that is!!!!!! Congrats!!!!!

  48. Colleen Halpern January 30, 2015 at 3:22 pm

    I love seeing new products. I love the techniques. I love, love, love all the cards! I sure would like to see how the insides of the cards were finished.
    Colleen

  49. Lynn Ekstrom January 30, 2015 at 3:25 pm

    I love the whole thing from the PAPER and ink to the inspiration! I read the magazine from cover to cover and can’t wait for each new issue. My only wish is that the magazine was printed more often. I have cancelled subscriptions that went digital only. Keep up the good work and thanks for a great read!

  50. Jean Rood January 30, 2015 at 3:30 pm

    I just love the fact that it is still printed! I really do not like digital magazines and books. It is too hard to pick up on a moments notice and look at a single article or too and I do not want to always have to be connected to electronics! Your designers are great too!

  51. Marie Sellers January 30, 2015 at 3:41 pm

    Your magazine inspires me. There are not too many magazines like yours around anymore. Love your ideas for greeting cards.

  52. Dorothy January 30, 2015 at 3:43 pm

    Mm what do I like about your magazine. 1) the creative how tos. 2) learning about new products coming in the market. They keep me in the know to help others. 3) announcing new upcoming events like crops or ScraoFest. 4) it is great going to an event and feeling you already know the person from reading articles or from the editor, etc. I love the photos and links also. So keep doing what you are doing and I will continue to spread the word of how great your magazine is for me. Tks and blessings.

  53. Nina Oelke January 30, 2015 at 3:54 pm

    I love the layouts and cards. And yes the magazine so inspires me πŸ™‚

  54. Violet January 30, 2015 at 4:05 pm

    I really like the cover and the other possible covers that you feature as well as all the different techniques and layouts. I only do multiple photo layouts so I like those the best. I use your page maps a lot when I do scrapbooking.

  55. Charlotte January 30, 2015 at 4:08 pm

    I am new to the scrapbook and card crafts and I do enyoy your magazine but quite frankly I would prefer a paper issue. I didn’t know until just now that you even had paper…..so you are now on my to do list…order the paper issue!!!!!! Can’t wait to see the real thing!!!
    Thanks soooooo much!!!!

  56. Geraldine Sawin January 30, 2015 at 4:13 pm

    I love the techniques. Clear, concise and easy to follow. Congratulations on year nine!

  57. Gail L. January 30, 2015 at 4:14 pm

    This is great! I love everything about the magazine!
    I love looking for new product & techniques!

  58. Helen Van Daalen January 30, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    I love holding the physical magazine. There is something comforting about it. But when I read the digital version I like the reader’s gallery.

  59. Roxanne January 30, 2015 at 4:41 pm

    I love the same supplies given to different crafters….and the vastly different, but beautiful layouts that are created!

  60. Valerie W January 30, 2015 at 4:42 pm

    Inspiration is number 1, but like the quality of paper that the magazine printed on.

  61. Deepa Lakshman January 30, 2015 at 5:01 pm

    I love looking at all the inspiration, the techniques, the simple, better and grand pages that are done with the same pictures. There is always a lot of eye candy to see and it is always better to have a print in hand to enjoy everything.

  62. Krista January 30, 2015 at 5:13 pm

    I just love looking at all the inspiring artwork. The how-tos are helpful, too.

  63. Mendi Yoshikawa January 30, 2015 at 5:18 pm

    I love everything about your issues, but I think the thing I love most is the nice crisp pages and the fact that I can get hardcopies to hold in my hands. πŸ™‚

  64. Jean marmo January 30, 2015 at 5:31 pm

    Congrats on all of your success! I love the inspiration! I can look at designs and find different techniques that help me with my layouts.

  65. Karen Lingel January 30, 2015 at 6:02 pm

    I like the articles that show how you can improve layouts with a little more time or embellishments. I can usually get myself to a “basic” level, but I’d really like my layouts to be “wow” rather than “fine”. That’s where I need help.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  66. Lindarub January 30, 2015 at 6:34 pm

    Love The Samples of cards and the techniques.

  67. Laurie B. January 30, 2015 at 6:44 pm

    I love seeing the creative uses of new products.

  68. Karen McNamara January 30, 2015 at 7:02 pm

    Love all the great ideas and inspiration from online and magazine. Thanks so much.

  69. A Dirpaul January 30, 2015 at 8:07 pm

    Love the top ten items.

  70. Sue Moody January 30, 2015 at 9:00 pm

    Catherine you are the best :). We love your magazine and can’t wait for the next issue

  71. Manda January 30, 2015 at 9:26 pm

    I love seeing all the new product available, and the technique articles. I learn so much!

  72. Rebecca Daly January 30, 2015 at 10:08 pm

    love the inspiration, love looking through and going back later (sometimes months and years later) to gain a new perspective , also learning new techniques

  73. Denise January 30, 2015 at 10:25 pm

    I have never had a copy of the print magazine (though I would ABSOLUTELY love to have one!), but I follow you on FB and love all the great things you share. They give me great ideas and are a joy to see!

  74. D January 30, 2015 at 10:27 pm

    Techniques and new products You guys are the best x

  75. Janet January 30, 2015 at 10:32 pm

    I love that it is a magazine. I can fold back the cover, set in on my desk and create without distractions of being online.I can easily re-find inspiration instead of getting bogged down in the glut of cyber space.

  76. Dawn Skene January 30, 2015 at 11:03 pm

    I love looking at all of the great projects! They give me so many great ideas and new ways of using products.

  77. Regina Furman January 30, 2015 at 11:06 pm

    I love the card sketches, and seeing how you use all the different embellishments. You always seem to have an “out of the box” use for things!

  78. Cheryl January 30, 2015 at 11:14 pm

    I love the whole magazine and can’t wait to sit down to read it cover to cover. When I see the white magazine in the mail I am really excited and if I am not home when it comes my husband calls me at work to tell me. And, YES, it is great quality paper etc. Love it soooo much.

  79. Kelly Sasman January 30, 2015 at 11:16 pm

    My fav part of the magazine is that I can bend th corner of ever page that has something on it that I want to try, buy or case. Then I can pour over it again and again and try, buy or case when ever I want because I save my magazines forever!

  80. Debbie Meyer January 30, 2015 at 11:36 pm

    Seeing the different techniques.

  81. Rebecca Bodine January 30, 2015 at 11:44 pm

    I like the general how to’s.

  82. Pam Sohan January 31, 2015 at 12:24 am

    I love the inspiration that come with the magazine ! Love seeing how others use their supplies.

  83. Indy January 31, 2015 at 12:30 am

    I am new to your blog and haven’t had a paper copy in my hands! Going to have to change that as I love having an actual magazine in hands to look through (be inspired) over and over again!

  84. Mel January 31, 2015 at 12:59 am

    It’s so nice that there is still a print magazine out there…I am so sad when I hear another one is gone! Your colour suite is definitely the article I look forward to the most. Keep the inspiration coming!

  85. Stefanie Haluk January 31, 2015 at 1:28 am

    i love the great project idea it has for me.

  86. judy January 31, 2015 at 1:30 am

    just bought my first copy which is an old Christmas one. Loving it already and it has given me ideas already. looking forward to more, thank you

  87. Marianne C January 31, 2015 at 1:40 am

    I really enjoy the many different articles, features and stories and projects.. But mostly, it’s so cool that you are a Canadian publication. That is so fantastic!

  88. Pat Zukowski-Address is 3000-35 st Ponoka AB T4J1A7 January 31, 2015 at 1:52 am

    I love to see all the new products and have the magazine to follow up on them whenever I want to. Also love the projects to get ideas and inspiration from . The paper quality is great and I keep the old copies as well to look back for retro ideas. Wish there was a Scrapfest or Cretiv Festival in Edmonton or Calgary coming this spring .{ if there is one scheduled — I have not heard about it yet.}

  89. Sandy Clinton January 31, 2015 at 2:10 am

    So excited for you & the team that produce SCT, Catherine! I love the magazine – always full of great in print ideas & the latest & greatest methods & products! I’m so happy to have a few of those events to look forward to in the coming weeks! Can’t wait to see you I’m Markham, my friend!

  90. Leanne S January 31, 2015 at 2:18 am

    Thanks for the giveaway. Love SCT.

  91. Pauline Frost January 31, 2015 at 2:20 am

    I’m new to this site but checked it out and love the how-tos and info from the team. Hoping to learn a lot.

  92. Anastasia M. January 31, 2015 at 2:31 am

    I love paper and I love paper magazines! Yours is one of my faves (though I read it in digital form)
    My fave part has always been the 3 t’s.

  93. Christine Kosmak January 31, 2015 at 3:21 am

    I actually can’t answer that question as I don’t have any copies of your mag!! Sad to say, but unfortunately both newsagents where I live closed down a couple of years ago!! Also because of severe health problems and stays in hospital over the last 18 months and being on crutches for a few months, meant that I couldn’t travel far and only then by taxi!! Just lucky my doctor filled in forms so I got a half price taxi card!! Would love to be able to sit and read through a copy though! Then I could answer the question!!!

  94. Stephanie G January 31, 2015 at 4:28 am

    I love everything about it!

  95. Lee January 31, 2015 at 6:50 am

    I love sketches and techniques!!

  96. Diane W January 31, 2015 at 7:19 am

    There isn’t a page I don’t enjoy. I can sit with my cup of tea and peruse each page dreaming of all the scrapbook pages, cards, home decor I would love to create. A girl can dream, can’t she!

  97. Marilyn E January 31, 2015 at 7:31 am

    Thank you for all the creativity packaged into each month!

  98. Diane Smith January 31, 2015 at 8:03 am

    I leaf through & sticky note what really interests me, then later I go back & read every page & usually find gems I missed on the first run through.

  99. Dolores ~ Wisconsin January 31, 2015 at 9:03 am

    I love the great ideas and different techniques. I keep all of my magazines and love to go back to the first ones I have to get forgotten ideas. Congratulations on nearing that magic number!!! WOOT WOOT!

  100. Linda Johnson January 31, 2015 at 9:04 am

    I love everything. Spend hours looking and looking again! LOL!

  101. Linda Akin January 31, 2015 at 9:20 am

    I love the inspiration each page gives and of course the how to pages! I have a little trouble with layout but scrapbook and cards helps me with this!

  102. Courtney January 31, 2015 at 9:37 am

    I love it for the ideas it offers, which then inspire / motivate me!

  103. Roseanna Crawford January 31, 2015 at 9:40 am

    I enjoy using the magazine as inspiration to see all the different styles of cards and layouts.

  104. Shari Czerwinski January 31, 2015 at 9:45 am

    I love seeing everyone’s creativeness and learning new techniques. Nothing beats the feel of a real book or magazine πŸ™‚

  105. Cynthia Powers January 31, 2015 at 9:55 am

    I love your magazine and would love to win a print issue. I enjoy seeing all the creative ideas in your magazine which inspire me to create. Thank you for this giveaway.

  106. Cheryl Little January 31, 2015 at 10:11 am

    The layout of the cover.

  107. Carlota January 31, 2015 at 10:43 am

    love the inspiration….wonderful to see

    I always love “how to’s” but the best thing is just being able to hold it in my hands! I love paper copies of my magazines!

  117. Scrappin' Diva - Cindy B January 31, 2015 at 7:46 pm

    I love all the inspiration it gives me to do my projects!

    To pick one thing I love about the magazine is tough. There is so much creativeness in every issue that just screams inspiration to me!

  121. Jenn Zawadzki January 31, 2015 at 11:05 pm

    What a great giveaway. I can’t pick just one thing I love about SCT. I lOVE the same idea shown 3 different ways. I love the passion and artistic ways of the staff. The new products and companies advertised in the magazine. I’ll leave it at that but I can keep going on.
    Thanks
    Jenn Z

  122. Marlene O January 31, 2015 at 11:49 pm

    Love receiving paper copies so I can refer back to them when I need inspiration. Also enjoy new product information. Would love to see more card ideas. Keep up the good work.

  123. Beverly Jordan February 1, 2015 at 12:36 am

  125. Peg Bagg February 1, 2015 at 1:58 am

    I have loved magazines all my life. Mom and Grandmother too. Having a hard copy of your Scrapbook & Cards on hand is a great way to learn, copy or lift a design/concept. I like computers, but when I’m creating, there’s no real room in my work space and it’s distracting. Having the magazine, I can lay it near me, pull out a page, lay it on my lap (which is part of my workspace πŸ™‚ Thanks for the op to win a copy of your magazine!

  126. Linda Tagg February 1, 2015 at 2:04 am

    I love this inspiration and how to ‘
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  127. Michelle February 1, 2015 at 10:30 am

    What isn’t there to LOVE about this magazine? I mean it’s filled with creative ideas from cover to cover! Can’t put it down!! And when I need a shot of inspiration, I just start flipping through the pages and something jumps out at me!!
    πŸ™‚

  128. Amber M. February 1, 2015 at 11:31 am

    Truly, the whole magazine – from cover to cover – makes me happy! It’s brimming with beautiful colours, fantastic products, amazing creativity from talented designers, and inspiration galore. Thanks to you, Catherine, and your team and the generous suppliers for making sure we always have a print magazine to inspire us to have fun documenting our memories and trying new techniques along the way!

  129. Shelley P February 1, 2015 at 3:44 pm

    It is hard to pick one thing as I love very page of the magazine. If I had to narrow it down, I favour the sketches, layouts, and the DIY tricks. Here’s to 9 years and many more….Happy Birthday!

  130. SueB of Blondin Blogs February 1, 2015 at 4:25 pm

    can’t limit it to just one thing; i love the in-depth review of new products, the different takes on the same challenges/sketches, and the basic/intermediate/advanced takes on sketches! i usually start with a quick preview look, then go back and really check out the different articles. keep up the good work!

  131. April W February 1, 2015 at 7:24 pm

    I love the smell of it lol! I know that may seem weird but I’m a reader at heart and nothing beats the smell of a new magazine or book in my hands. πŸ™‚

  132. Julie A. Shearer February 1, 2015 at 9:38 pm

    Your magazine is by far the best scraobooking magazine ever! I like the quality of the paper used,the photography,the amazing designer’s and the DIY. ITS ALL JUST WONDERFUL!!! Thank you for the opportunity to win. And Congrats on nine years!!!

  133. Adrienne February 2, 2015 at 10:05 am

    I too love the tactile feeling of holding your magazine in my hands. This is also the reason I continue to do traditional scrapbooking. Digital is convenient but so far has not replaced my love for paper and ink.

  134. Carolyn E February 2, 2015 at 10:16 am

    I love any and all sketches!!! But I am loving the Petite Packs a Punch…I love (& collect!) those 6×6 paper pads and love to see ways to use them!

  135. Lynn Petersen February 2, 2015 at 11:25 am

    I would love to win a copy of your magazine! ? Thanks for the chance to win!

  136. Karen P February 2, 2015 at 12:32 pm

    I always look forward to new inspiration with each issue, and I’m never disappointed! Thanks for a great magazine and the chance to win!

  137. Mary February 2, 2015 at 3:50 pm

    I love that it is a print magazine on fine quality paper and comes in an envelope so it is clean. I sit down with it and savor every page. I find so many ideas that I want to use immediately and mark them with sticky notes. The magazine then stays on my desk or packed in my crop bag ready to use. Please keep printing this magazine and don’t go to solely digital.

  138. Casandra Bennett February 2, 2015 at 6:52 pm

    I love the inspiration, and viewing online is a great way to zoom in on some of the beautiful details.

  139. Meredith February 3, 2015 at 8:03 am

    My favorite part of the magazine are the pictures of the projects.

  140. Joan February 4, 2015 at 6:07 am

    There’s nothing like a paper magazine. Nothing. Its just fun to hold and sink yourself into! Great job S&CT!

  141. CJS February 4, 2015 at 10:22 pm

    I think the whole publication is a masterpiece – it is so beautiful from cover to cover, I do not want to ever give them away!

  145. Heather H. February 4, 2015 at 10:28 pm

    I love the inspirational ideas on every page — no matter what page I turn to there is something to capture my attention and to inspire me to create!

  146. Sandi Pressley February 4, 2015 at 10:41 pm

    What a great cover! The favorite part of your magazine for me is the pocket page section. After 3 years of everyday documenting, it helps me keep my pocket pages fresh.

  147. Colleen Halpern February 4, 2015 at 11:15 pm

    I love seeing each issue. Thanks for a fabulous magazine!

  148. Lynn Black February 4, 2015 at 11:18 pm

    Love to look through “real” magazines as compared to digital!

  149. Nina Oelke February 4, 2015 at 11:34 pm

    I would love to win an SCT magazine subscription. I follow you on facebook and my email and I must say I absolutely love SCT πŸ™‚

  150. sharon gullikson February 5, 2015 at 12:02 am

    I love the inspiration, but mostly how-to’s. I like to learn how to use tools and products in new ways.

  151. Jennifer February 5, 2015 at 1:14 am

    I like seeing all the pretty layout and cards that you have…

  152. Soleil Hurst February 5, 2015 at 2:28 am

    Mine got lost in the mail so it would be nice to win.

  153. Hilde Aaslund February 5, 2015 at 2:40 am

    I read the magazine in bed – reading magazines on the iPad never beats the feeling of a fresh paper mag!

  154. judy February 5, 2015 at 3:23 am

    just bought my first copy last week looking forward to buying more. lots of great ideas thank you

  155. Carey N. February 5, 2015 at 5:27 am

    I love EVERYTHING about your magazine! I get excited when I get my paper copy in the mail! I love the tips and ideas provided in the magazine, as well as the step by step instructions given with photos that allows me to duplicate the project myself. I so enjoy the free cut files within each magazine! I also enjoy the ads which allow me to see the latest and greatest products and to give me access to their websites to acquire additional ideas and/or to purchase products. Your giveaways are always SO VERY generous too! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

  156. Debbie Field February 5, 2015 at 6:24 am

    I love the Tips Tricks and Techniques articles in every issue. It provides me with the inspiration to branch out further with each issue.

  157. Cara Feeney February 5, 2015 at 6:34 am

    I wish I was as creative as the designers you feature!

  158. lisascreativeniche February 5, 2015 at 6:39 am

    I LOVE that you still print your magazine! It means so much, especially now days… I LOVE to be able to have the real thing with me to hold and open and tab… thank you so much!

  159. Melanie S February 5, 2015 at 6:52 am

    I love your magazine because…lots of inspiration!! One of the articles I have read over and over is the series of the PL/pocket page articles.
    The magazine is very clean looking, not overly full of ad’s. I LOVE that is a magazine that I can put in my purse and read while waiting for the kids.
    Thank you πŸ™‚

  160. ShellyJ February 5, 2015 at 7:54 am

    I love the inspiration you give four time a year! Keep up the fabulous job!

  161. Janet Cobb February 5, 2015 at 8:19 am

    I love having an actual magazine in my hands to leaf through at my leisure! So many have gone to digital format only. I love all of the inspiration in every issue, all of the different techniques presented. It is really nice to kick back in my recliner with my latest issue and enjoy reading from cover to cover!

  162. sandie February 5, 2015 at 8:51 am

    I love real magazines far too many have gone digital or disappeared completely. I used to get several magazines and now can never find them. I love all the inspirational ideas and being able o just thumb through them.

  163. Louise February 5, 2015 at 8:57 am

    love the feel of a paper magazine and being able to dog-ear the pages that inspire me

  164. Wanda February 5, 2015 at 8:59 am

    i would love to have an issue. I’m new to crafting and need all the inspiration and direction that I can get.

  165. Theresa Schmidt February 5, 2015 at 9:04 am

    I love your magazine! I like the new products you showcase & I like the DIY techniques. Keep up the amazing work!

  166. Cheryl O. February 5, 2015 at 9:36 am

    Yours is the only magazine I follow. And my favorite part? The Page Maps – they are a great guide and inspiration-starter! Oh, and all the ads for pretty paper – this addict loves paper! Thanks for all you do for us. πŸ™‚

  167. Jennifer Sun February 5, 2015 at 9:48 am

    Wow, I’ve never gotten a print issue! I’d like to win just to check it out!

    Oh, SO Sweet!! Would love a copy!! The inspiration is just what I need to get my day going.

  169. Gwen McCaffrey February 5, 2015 at 10:22 am

    I love the cover and all the pages inside! The paper quality is the best. I love the other layouts of the cover page and choosing which one I like the best. And best of all the 10 Most Wanted, it’s the best way to keep up with the new product trends.

  170. Steffanie S February 5, 2015 at 10:25 am

    I just love seeing all the beautiful inspiration. Your magazine is so well designed and fun to read. Each page is pure eye candy! Some of my favorite designers in the industry have been with you for a long time and I always look forward to seeing what they create!

  171. Cheryl Ras February 5, 2015 at 10:26 am

    I am a newbie. I have not had one of your magazines but this would be an awesome way to start. I am in need of some ideas for scrapping beautiful memories made with my grandchildren. I love the idea of holding the book in my hands – digital has its place but there’s nothing like having it “live.”

  172. Susan Poulin February 5, 2015 at 10:28 am

    Love your magasine. Take ideas from it all the time.

  173. Raegan L February 5, 2015 at 10:56 am

    I’d love to get copies of your magazine.

  175. Victoria Kelly February 5, 2015 at 3:35 pm

  176. Kim Moylan February 5, 2015 at 5:37 pm

    My Fave is the top 10 most wanted, usually I see myself using all the item’s they list!!Thanks!

  177. Marie Butler February 5, 2015 at 6:03 pm
