Last week our friends from Taylored Expressions were here and we gave away a selection of their brand new inks!

The winner of this fabulous prize package is…

What lovely colours in the ink pads. Chocolate truffle, saltwater taffy, oreo, and cherry pop. They are making my mouth water. I use black ink pads the most often, but I am pretty sure I own every shade of blue ink pads on the market with the exception of these two. Blue is my favourite colour for sure. Thanks for the opportunity to add to my stash, and for the inspiration of the card. Posted by: Dianne Lemay | June 14, 2016 at 08:12 PM

Congratulations Dianne! Please send your address and telephone number to me directly at with "TE winner" in your reference line. We'll be sure to send that off to Taylored Expressions so they can get the prize on it's way to you!

Thank you all for joining us today. It's always on release day that I like to publicly thank our incredible team who works so hard on each and every issue. They are a group of extraordinary women. And yes, sometimes I pinch myself that I actually have the opportunity to work with them. Their talents are extraordinary. We truly hope you enjoy our latest issue and all the other things we have to offer at SCT! Do you want a little hint at what we were working on this past week? Our second online class in partnership with PageMaps AND our 2017 Creative Planner…that's growing again! Let's just say the rest of the year is going to be as fun-filled as the first part of the year was. And we're thrilled you've come along for the ride with us!

Have a wonderful weekend celebrating all the amazing men in your life this Father's Day! I'm headed off to New York for a few days next week with almost NO agenda. WHAT??? While that's a little foreign to me, I'm looking forward to discovering new places and meeting new faces. Follow me on Instagram @catherinesct to see what I discover along the way!
