Hooray for Friday! My kids are finally both out of school and the pressure to make lunches and get them up in the mornings is over. Yay! I also like for them to have a chance to run around and have fun when it is so hot outside. So not only am I thrilled that it is Friday, but I am thrilled that summer vacation has begun. You can see from this photo that my son is glad for the summer holidays as well.
For me, one of the ways that I know summer is here is that my copy of the new summer issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today arrives at my door. I absolutely love this magazine, and lucky me, I live around the corner from the publisher, Catherine Tachdjian, so I get my copy as soon as the magazine is back from the printers. I love the feel of this magazine in my hands and the nice thick cover and inside pages. I love the smell of the ink. This magazine makes me happy!
Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine is published four times a year. The Summer 2015 issue released last Friday. It is available for viewing online here 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.
Here are a few of my favourite layouts that were published in the Summer 2015 issue.
As a special gift, the first 100 people on Friday and another 100 people on Saturday to each Scrapbook Expo event will receive a copy of the latest Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine! If you have not had a chance to check out this magazine, you should take advantage of this opportunity. Once you get your hands on a printed copy, you will be hooked!
