TGIF friends! Can we all say a collective "what a week!!!" Has it been a crazy week for you? Around the SCT office is was an exciting week as the first copies of the summer issue landed in the office on Wednesday! You would think that after 41 previous issues that when the new one lands in the office it wouldn't be such a big deal but let me tell you each one is just as exciting as every issue before that. To see 6-8 months of work wrapped up in a pretty, colourful magazine is thrilling. To see all the hard work our team and host of contributors have put in is even more thrilling. I may just pinch myself a little to have the opportunity to work with all these incredible ladies. If you're a subscriber, your issue is shipping out starting today! If you would love some information on how to subscribe, you can do that here. It's an beautiful and inspiring issue that we can't wait to share with you next Friday. Mark your calendars!


If you're just joining us for the first time, welcome! If you've followed us for a long time then you know it's Friday and we LOVE to give things away on Friday. Yesterday we had our sweet friend Taylor VanBruggen, owner of Taylored Expressions, here for Card Cafe Thursday. Taylor created a beautiful card and shared one of their brand new products…INK! 

Taylored Expression_InkDon't you just love those names? Wouldn't you just love to welcome these lovelies into your crafty space? And maybe, just maybe you might share them now and then with a friend? Ok, maybe not 🙂 Well our friends at Taylored Expressions would love to give away a prize pack that includes a full set of Taylored Expressions Mini InkPads (all 12!) along with the newly-released Fresh Florals stamp set Taylor used on her card here yesterday.


For an opportunity to win, please leave a comment below! Leave your comment by Thursday, June 16th and in your comment tell us what your favourite colour of ink is to use. Good luck! 


Last week we gave away an Alphabet Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers. The lucky winner chosen by our random integer friend is:

Oh my gosh – how amazing would it be to have such a versatile tool in my toolbox!? I have, and love, the WRMK Gift Bag and Envelope Punch Boards – adding the Alphabet Punch Board would be fabulous! Thanks for the chance to win! Posted by: Deborah Smart | June 07, 2016 at 12:32 PM
