the Summer issue of Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine (and a weekend giveaway)

Good Morning!  Today is a fun day because it's the release of the summer issue of SCT.  It is always an honor to contribute to this inspiring publication and this month was no exception.  

I participated in the 3 Designer challenge for this issue.  We were each sent the same supplies, a kit of sorts, and asked to create a project from those supplies.  This is what I came up with:


I loved the American Crafts goodies and couldn't stay away from the turquoise polkadots.  I thought they went really well with the orange from Payton's sunglasses.

Circles were the theme inspired by the dots so I used that in various punches and also stitched in a circular pattern as well.  The blue bumps placement was inspired by the popular mist splatters.  Fun to place them where I wanted them to be and to have a dimensional element too.

Weekend Giveaway:

I hope you have a chance to check out the summer issue of SCT, you can view it online, but if you'd like to see it in print and you aren't already a subscriber or don't have access to a copy at your LSS, I have an extra copy right here I would love to use for a weekend giveaway, along with a little box of goodies from my stash.  Good stuff, I promise.  Simply leave a comment and let me know if you take time to check out SCT each release, and if you like the online or the paper version.  I'll draw a name on Sunday night and post it first thing in the AM on Monday.  Sound good?  (P.S.  US only.  I love you, my international friends, but shipping is expensive).  

thank you and have a great Friday!  I have some work to do for classes tomorrow (Saturday classes are a stinker), and the annual swimming lesson extravaganza continues with lessons for the kiddos.  Fun times!

  2. I am always so happy to see the latest issue of Scrapbooks and cards today!! I get so much inspiration from them. I usually see the online version and have never had the pleasure to hold a paper copy. I'd love to win!!

  3. I just downloaded it and can't wait to look through it tonight after the kids fall asleep! I'm not a subscriber, so having an online one is great, though I do prefer the paper version!

    I usually download it and read it while I'm nursing my little girl. It would be really fun to see a physical version! Thanks! :)

  8. I didn't know there was an online version, is it free? Thanks for the chance to win!

  9. I used to see it more often when I went to LSS but now never see it anymore since my LSS went away. I prefer paper version since I work with computers all day long.

    I've always love the inspiration in SCT. I will go to check out online version now. Would love to get a recent copy to see what I'm missing.
