Sleigh bells ring. Can you hear them? Or is that the sound of glasses clinking to welcome the New Year? I guess it could be the jingle of Cupid’s arrows as he flutters about. It all depends on when you choose to read this issue. But it’s safe to say, it’s a regular Winter Wonderland, with ideas stretching from the first snowfall of the season to romantic evenings in February.

This is one of the most popular seasons to create. Between holiday cards and love notes, card makers keep themselves busy sending words of good cheer across the miles. And there’s no shortage of themes or happenings to scrapbook as merry moments unfold. We’re here to keep you inspired all winter long. Let’s take a calendar-based stroll through this issue:

DECEMBER: There’s still time to get those holiday cards made and sent. Turn to page 29 (Sketch Savvy) for ideas. And don’t let all the celebrating this month intimidate you in the scrap room. Our Document December article (pg. 43) shows how you can scrapbook an entire month, even a busy one, on a single project.

JANUARY: Time for outdoor fun and New Year’s celebrations. Snap gorgeous photos of these and other winter themes following the advice laid out in our 10 Years: 10 Photo Tricks article (pg. 21). While you’re at it, look to your Instagram account and our Pic Tips column (pg. 12) for ways to keep the winter blues away using your images.

FEBRUARY: Love is in the air. Check out Card Cafe (pg. 59) for heartfelt Valentine’s Day designs for everyone on your sweetheart list.

Of course, this is just the quick calendar of events. There is so much more to be found. From cozy pom pom techniques (pg. 19) to a remarkable assortment of layouts, cards, and pocket pages in Inspiration Gallery (pg. 63), you’ll have much to choose from when it comes to getting your winter craft on. From all of your friends at Scrapbook & Cards Today, we wish you and yours a happy winter season full of light, kindness, and creative joy.
