Call for Submissions: 2017 Spring call


It’s nearly a new year, which means a new issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine is in the works! Won’t you help us kick off 2017 by sending your spring-themed projects for us to review and potentially include in our Spring 2017 issue? Please find specific info on what we’re looking for below:

Inspiration Gallery

We would love to see your artwork—including layouts (single and double pages), pocket scrapbook pages (ex. Project Life), cards, and other paper projects with the following themes:

  • spring festivities
  • outdoor excitement (new flowers in bloom, gardening, etc.)
  • Easter celebrations
  • spring break
  • family time
  • Mother’s Day
  • and any other spring-related theme

What catches our eye at Scrapbook & Cards Today:

  • well-balanced, double page layouts
  • multi-photo, single page layouts
  • journaling (large enough font that it will show up when sized down for print)
  • innovative card designs
  • overall creativity

Sketch Savvy

SCT’s sketches are always inspiring and this one is no exception. Use it to create a layout or card and then send an image of your design our way for review. We encourage you to be creative with this sketch. Play with embellishments, mix up your patterned paper, flip it the orientation, or copy the design exactly—it's simply a blueprint to get your ideas flowing! This is for our spring issue, so we ask that you keep seasonality in mind when creating.




Email a well-lit image of your project (smaller than 1mb) to ideas@scrapbookandcards.com with the subject line “Spring 2017 SCT Call.” Please include:

  • Your name (as you’d like to see it published) and contact info (not published)
  • A brief supply list
  • Any notes you feel might help us better understand what makes your project unique.
