We can finally share the summer issue!

We can finally share the summer issue!

Good morning SCT friends! If you've checked in with us online over the last few days then you know we experienced a severe server crash about an hour after we released the brand new summer issue. The reason? So many readers coming to the site and downloading/viewing the new issue! While of course a server crash is a terrible issue to have, the silver lining is the reason why it happened. Excited readers. Looking back over the last year, our online traffic has grown 4 times what it was. For the small publisher out of Canada that said 11 years ago "we're going to launch a free magazine," crashing a server Friday showed that armed with an outstanding team, a very supportive industry and YOU, our amazing readers, each issue is still very exciting. While our IT team is still working on fixing the issues and we hope the server is stable, we can finally share that our summer issue is LIVE!

This issue includes:

  • 120 sizzlin' ideas for summer
  • hot trends spotted – see what's on trend for the season
  • the coolest card ideas – charming scenes & interactive elements
  • make it mini – save summer stories on a smaller scale in a Traveler's Notebook!
  • terrific titles – cool ideas from Lisa Dickinson
  • meaningful journal & photo ideas
  • free online downloads
  • … and an inspiration gallery that is full of stunning projects!

We hope you will enjoy all the inspiration our amazing team and contributors have put together for you in this issue! It was also our new Editor-in-Chief Susan Opel's first issue with us and she did an outstanding job!

Of course with each issue release we LOVE to give away a few copies!  Be sure to leave a comment below by July 6th and we will choose three winners! Good luck!!!

Thank you everyone for all your support as we dealt with the server issue. A great deal of hard work has gone in to ensuring the site is restored so that you're able to visit us as often as you like! If you subscribe to get the issue delivered to you and have this issue in your hands, we would love to know what your favourite part is! Leave it in your comments below. Our team always loves to know what has inspired you! For any other comments you may wish to share, please feel free to do that by emailing me directly at catherine@scrapbookandcards.com!

    I love your magazine. I keep hunting the local Barnes & Noble for the magazine but never seem to find it there, so to get a free copy to hold will be truly wonderful.
