The spring issue is now available! And we’re kicking off our 10 year celebration!


Happy Friday SCT friends! We're so glad you’re here today as this is a BIG day around the SCT office! Today marks the launch of our 41st quarterly issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine and marks 10 amazing years in the papercrafting industry.  In these 10 years we’ve seen a great deal of changes, as with any industry, but what we continue to see and feel is passion. A passion for keeping memories and telling stores, a passion for sharing our papercrafting obsession with others and, let’s be a little honest, a passion for beautiful products that speak to each of us! At each of our Crop & Create events we see a passion for learning, on each issue’s pages we see our team’s passion for sharing their creativity and as a media company, our passion is sharing too.  Thank you for being the reason we look forward to the next 10 years! Say it with us…"long live print!"

In our new spring issue, you’ll see a beautiful issue that our team poured all of their hearts and talents in to. We have a few new articles we’ll be sharing this year like PicTips, Make it Mini and Pocket Play! You’ll also continue to see beautiful, easy to read articles and step outs showcasing all the latest and greatest trends, products and techniques. This team is not short on ideas to inspire you! We’ve also expanded our Inspiration Gallery, answered some reader requests and have more additional content you can download than ever before. Are we proud of issue 41? You bet we are! We invite you to take a walk through this new issue and share what you loved the most. What spoke to you, what made you go “a-ha!” or what made you want to stop, drop and scrap immediately.  We want to hear it!


download or view HERE


Now, let’s get the par-tay started! Starting on Monday, March 21st until March 30, we will spend 10 full days celebrating. We are celebrating you, we are celebrating our team and we are celebrating those industry partners who have championed our success over the years. Each day our team will share a fun birthday themed project and each day we’ll have a fun “loot bag” to share with a lucky reader! We also have another fun little challenge we will share in Monday’s post. With over $2,000 in prizes, this is the place to be over the next 10 days. We want you to share this will all your friends and if you do, be sure to tag us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as we’ll be watching and offering prizes randomly for social “shares.” It’s all about that sharing isn’t it?


We could not leave today with a wonderful giveaway from our friend, Heidi Swapp! One lucky winner will win a brand NEW 10” Marquee HAPPY! Marquee Love Letter Kits are perfect for eye-catching displays. These large letters are customizable and offer the perfect opportunity for creativity. Each kit includes a letter, light strand, clear bulb caps, and one tracing template! Pair with Marquee Love accessories for a custom, trendy project that will light up any room!

Wouldn't this be a fun addition to your scrap area? If you would like an opportunity to win, be sure to leave a comment below! Good luck!

Let's also give some love to Heidi by visiting her facebook page with a big "SCT thank you!" We know she will appreciate it!

There you have it friends! Thank you again for stopping by to kick off this amazing birthday celebrations with us. Please be sure to download/view the issue or visit your local scrapbook store to pick it up! Join us Monday!
