Scrapbook & Cards Today Winter issue RELEASE DAY!!!

I have to say I am coming out of my non-blogging-ness due to the fact that it's RELEASE DAY for the Winter issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today!!!!

I am always excited when the new issue goes live but, this one is extra special for me because my layout was selected for the cover. :)

I even broke out the glitter for the snowflakes. Anyone that knows me, knows my disdain for glitter... But they sure do look pretty!

The issue goes live at 10am EST online. You can download it for FREE here when the clock strikes 10! If you are lucky enough to live in an area that has a local store. Call them and/or stop in to see if they carry Scrapbook & Cards Today. It's FREE with purchase at your local store. They never last long in store because the magazine is even better in person!

So, if the magazine release wasn't fabulous enough, today is also release day for the 2013 Scrapbook & Cards Today/PageMaps calendar!

The calendar is full of amazing pages and PAGEMAPS sketches by Becky Fleck! You can find this calendar in some of the stores that carry Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine and you can order it online here. It's $9.95+ $2.50 (shipping). 

Make sure you check both of these out!

psst... I have 1 of each to giveaway. Would you like to win them? Simply leave a comment below and I will pick a winner next Friday. (Please leave your email address in your comment so I can contact you if you win)

Have a great weekend!
