If you have attended a Scrapbook Expo event in 2015 and were one of the first 100 people in line each morning, then you will have received a copy of Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine. Isn’t it lovely?! I especially love the feel of this magazine in my hands. Personally, while there are so many opportunities to interact with books and magazines in a digital format, I am still one of those people who prefers the feel of the paper in my hands. I have piles of books and magazines all over my house. I love to flip through this magazine and I enjoy how nice and thick the paper is.
Scrapbook & Cards Today releases four issues a year to coincide with the change of seasons. Today, the fall 2015 issue was released. The magazine is available in local scrapbook stores or via subscription. It is also available for free viewing online or for free download. You can download the PDF for the entire magazine, you can download the magazine in four parts so that the file sizes are smaller, or you can download the PDF for a specific article. Whichever way you want the information, it is available for you. All back issues are also available for viewing online.
With each issue, they also provide free sketches, cut files, and printable files. I especially like the fall cut files that Cathy Zielske created. These images are great for using on layouts or smaller cards for pocket pages. What fun!
Here are a few of my favourite layouts from the fall issue:
A few times a year, Scrapbook & Cards Today also releases special issues. The latest special issue is Creative Cards Vol. 1.
To celebrate the release of these two issues, Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine would like one lucky Scrapbook Expo friend to have the new fall 2015 issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine as well as a copy of Creative Cards Vol. 1.
