National Scrapbook Day and Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine!


Thank you for blog hopping with the Scrapbook & Cards Today team today! For your chance to win a one year subscription to SCT from my blog, please leave a comment on this post. Be sure to visit the other SCT team member’s blogs mentioned today on the SCT blog for more chances to win a one year subscription. You have eight chances in total! Winners will be selected on Monday at 6:00 p.m. EST
Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine is available online, but a hard copy of all the inspiration within is a must have. Remember what I did for the Spring issue? Good luck!
And as it is National Scrapbook Day, the team at S&CT thought it would be fun to see what each of us would do if given a sketch. Becky was gracious enough to create one for us:

And this is what I came up with:




Supplies: Bazzill Swiss Dot cardstock, Dear Lizzie from American Crafts, some yummy SC exclusive paper from the May kit at Studio Calico, JBS crepe paper ribbon and some Doodlebug alphas.
I thought this sketch was really easy to stretch to a two page layout. And it gave me a perfect opportunity to scrap our recent Easter gathering. I know there are 12x12's, 8.5 x 11's, two pagers, and even a card made with this sketch for inspiration. Be sure to check all the blogs to see what the other girls have done!

Oh, and the letters you are looking for on this blog are SI! Be sure to visit all the blogs and unscramble our newest advertising partner’s name and send an email to ideas@scrapbookandcards.com for a chance to win a prize from this great company as well.
Have a wonderful National Scrapbook Day!
