Welcome back to Freebie Friday! I hope you have all had a fabulous week! I am very much looking forward to having some downtime this weekend. Sometimes with kids it feels like I am always on the go. Keeping busy means I have lots of photographic moments but not always a lot of time to relax. When I do have some time to just sit, I enjoy both reading and scrapbooking. One of my favourite magazines to both flip through and read is Scrapbook & Cards Today. This magazine is available in a printed version as well as online for free. I am a very visual person and I love all the white space that this magazine has to offer. Not only do the projects inspire me and make me happy, but I love the actual layout and format of the magazine. It is nice and clean and does not make my brain feel overwhelmed with too many visuals.
Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine is published four times a year. The Winter 2014 issue that released in December is available for viewing online here or for free download. All back issues are also available for viewing online. Here are a few of my favourite layouts that were published in the magazine in 2014.
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!
Scrapbook & Cards Today also hosts Crop & Create events across Canada. These events combine fun and educational classes from some of the industry’s top teachers, with loads of cropping time, make n’ takes, and a host of fabulous prizes! Now in their fifth year, these crops not only have a following within Canada where some attendees fly across the country to attend, but also a number of attendees from fly in from the UK in order to attend.
The magazine has a global reach so in order to bring a little of the Crop & Create experience to all of their readers, they also offer Crop & Create Delivered Kits. Imagine beautiful, seasonally-inspired papers and embellishments, mixed with exclusive sketches, custom stamps, cutting files, video tutorials, and so much more!
“Even if the tulips and daffodils aren’t blooming quite yet, you’ll find plenty of colorful spring blooms in the latest Crop & Create: Delivered kit – Blossoms & Breezes!
