We love Fridays.  Who doesn't love Fridays.  But Friday's before we go to print are always fun around the SCT office.  That means it's been a busy week putting the final touches on the issue and then, on the Friday, we get to reveal the cover.  And with all the snow around the office right now, we are loving the fresh breath of spring in this cover!  Have a peek…


This issue is full, yes FULL, of creative inspiration for the beautiful spring season.  Each of our designers and contributors have given their very best and our new Editor-in-Chief Megan Hoeppner and our new Art Director, Cathy Zielske have brought it all together for one outstanding issue!  It will be delivered to homes, in stores and online for free viewing on March 20th!  If you would like to subscribe to receive this beautiful issue in your hands, now would be a perfect time!  You can do that HERE.  We ship all around the world!

Friday's as you know are also the day we get to feature one of our sweet partners and today's company, Taylored Expressions, is one of the sweetest around!  Good people.  Yesterday in our Card Cafe Thursday post, we shared some beautiful cards from their design team.  Today you have the opportunity to win a fabulous prize package of those dies, stamps and papers!


Today's winner will receive a beautiful prize package that includes:

For an opportunity to win, please be sure to visit their website HERE and tell us what your favourite new stamp or die is!  Be sure to leave your comment below by Thursday, March 12!  Good luck! And if you have a second drop by the Taylored Expressions facebook page and say "hello" please do.  Taylor would love to hear from you.

Now let's see who won last week's Crop & Create goody bag!!!  The winner is:

 I'm a new subscriber and just received my first issue – real paper! I love all of the content and have read it several time already – I especially liked the watercolor 101 article, as I'm just getting into using watercolors on my projects. I read your blog every day – there is always something new to try. Thanks for all of your great work!  Posted by: Margaret Roberts | February 27, 2015 at 02:20 PM
