Santa is arriving just a bit early this year, and he's bringing the new issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today! The winter edition is available today (in stores and online download) so grab a hot cocoa and curl up with this inspiration-packed magazine. From cards to layouts to projects, it's full of holiday eye candy and ideas galore!
One of my contributions to this issue is a grid layout featuring lots of favorite holiday decor. I should note that these photos are from last year, before the Christmas Light Gremlins wreaked havoc on our strands of lights and drove me to drink an inordinate amount of adult beverages.
The page primarily uses the Sleigh Bells Ring collection from My Mind's Eye (how divine is that woodgrain paper?!?) with accents from Jillibean Soup, Studio Calico and Lawn Fawn. And I went just a little old-school with the eyelets, but I love the twine threaded through them.
I also incorporated twine and smaller accents like epoxy stickers on several of the die cuts, like the tree below. And the best part about these "lights?" They never cause me to yell decidedly non-festive words because they won't light up.
I hope you'll go grab this beautiful issue and let me know what you think. It's one of the very few remaining scrapbook magazines out there, and beyond the seasonal issues, SCT also offers Crop & Create events, scrapbook kits, and daily blog posts all about crafting. It's a true treasure trove of inspiration, so check it out!
I'll be back tomorrow with a new Simple Saturday - hope your Friday is fabulous!
