It has been an extraordinary day and we are so happy you joined us to celebrate one of our favourite days of the year! If you have been with us throughout the day, we hope you enjoyed all the inspiration and thank you for spending your Saturday with us. If you just joined us or checked in throughout the day, we hope you'll view each post and of course leave a comment for an opportunity to win all of today's incredible prizes!  If you take up our challenges, make sure we see them.  We love to see your work! YOU are the reason we do what we do and we love doing it!

A big thank you to our very talented team and guests for the beautiful artwork they shared today. Let's give them a round of applause. If you're alone at your computer, it's ok, they hear you! If your family is nearby and giving you sideways glances as you clap, just smile and do it anyways! We can all be a little crazy sometimes right?  I feel fortunate to work with this team of supportive women who continue to amaze and inspire me with their creative talents. 

A final thank you to all our generous sponsors today. When we send out an email saying we are celebrating they celebrate with us. Thank you for taking the time to thank them on their Facebook pages. It's the easiest way for them to see your appreciation and as our next big event will be our "12 days of Holiday Giving" they are sure to remember all of today's lovely comments.

Our final prize today is from a company that offers us a great deal of support for all that we do here at SCT. American Crafts and all their brands are good to us. If you've been to a Crop & Create event, purchased one of our Crop & Create Delivered kits, read our magazine or our special issues then you know they are right beside us.  It seemed only fitting to end the day with our friends from American Crats and this fun prize…


The Documentary collection is a colorful, fun new collection from Dear Lizzy. Sweet florals, geometric patterns, and polka dots join icons of cameras, typewriters, pinwheels and more in this darling collection that features an eye-catching color palette of cool aqua, bold pinks, and cheerful yellow. Colours, patterns and textures oh my!  You'll also see some of this new collection in our winter issue and our 2016 Planner which, surprise, is currently in production!

And since it's World Card Making Day, we have a few copies of our brand new Creative Cards Vol. 1 special issue to give away! We will draw three different winners for that!


To be entered in to our final prizes of the day, please be sure to leave a comment below telling us what you enjoyed most today. Was it the challenges, the tutorials, the prizes or just joining like minded crafters from all over the world to enjoy this day creating cards for loved ones.  We would love to know what spoke to you!

Leave your comments by Friday, October 9 and we'll announce all the winners next Saturday, October 10th.  One final good luck!

To give our friends at American Crafts a big thank you, be sure to visit them on their Facebook page. We appreciate you for doing that!

And that's a wrap SCT friends! Have a wonderful day!
