Good morning and happy Friday to all our SCT friends around the world! It is just that kind of happy day at SCT headquarters. You know that feeling when it all comes together and you want to burst? It's that day! As we mentioned a couple of weeks ago we have been very hard at work and this morning, this beautiful spring issue went off to the printer...

We could not be more excited for this issue as it is jam packed with amazing inspiration from an incredibly talented team of amazing designers. With new features this year, Ali Edward's continuing to share her love of journaling and showcasing all the wonderful new products on the market, it's going to be a great year that kicks off with this fun issue. We've also added to our design team and can't wait to share that news with you on the 21st when this issue releases in stores and on our website.
For readers that have asked, SCT magazine can only be found in select independent stores across North America (locations here) and not in the large format retailers like Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Jo-Ann stores, grocery stores or book stores. Why you ask? Well its pretty simple, we LOVE our independent retailers where the magic of education and products come together. We have always wanted to provide our independent store owners with a little something special that people can only find in their stores. They work hard and we love to support them. If you don't have a local scrapbook store in your area then you can always subscribe (for postage and handling only!) or you can view or download any of our issues online, for FREE, anytime here! This new spring issue will be on our website and in stores on March 21st so mark your calendars.
But wait there's more! Not only have we been working on the spring issue, we have been working on this fabulous special issue, CardMaps Vol. 4! CardMaps Vol. 4 will begin shipping on April 25th and is bigger and better than ever. With 24 additional pages, more cards, more sketches and beautiful cut files, it's a must-have!
