National Scrapbook Day Recap

Well, I hope your day has been as lovely as mine has, there’s nothing like a whole day to celebrate SCRAPBOOKING :)! I know I was only able to see a tiny portion of the events going on in the scrapbooking world – but I almost prefer it that way, it can be a bit overwhelming to see SO many sales, and SO many freebies, challenges, chats, prizes etc! Phew!

Speaking of which, I’m sorry if I have overwhelmed you by posting so many times today (especially you, email subscribers)! I don’t usually do that, but I haven’t had a chance to blog in so long, and my husband was soooooo sweet to watch Gabe for me today while I helped host the Prima Hybrid Crop, surfed a few other events, shared tons of my most recent projects, and of course, got some scrapbooking done!!! (Thanks Babe)!!!

Anyway, in case you missed some (or all) of my NSD postings in all the excitement, here’s a little recap for you. If you are reading this on Saturday night or Sunday, you might still be able to catch some of these :)!

Prima Hybrid Flower Girl Blog Party: Click here to grab my free template and blog hop to find lots more too!

Shabby Miss Jenn: Big sale with tons of super adorable kits for $1 each!!!

Weeds and Wildflowers: Click to learn more about the huge sale and my NEW quick Album :)! Also, I shared a mini review of Heidi’s revised kit.

Prima Hybrid NSD Crop Party: Click to read about my Layout Challenge ALSO Click to read about my Prima Flower Challenge, they end Sunday night :).

And here are a few other things I came across today that should be noted:

1) A fun and funky FREE kit by Emily Powers can be found here.

2) ScrapArtist is selling a super-sized collab kit for only $3.33 (for their 3rd Birthday :)!

3) If you are STILL looking for more, I’m sure you can find all you need at the DigiShop Talk {I}NSD Forum!

Wow, I blogged eight times today! That has to be my all-time record :)! Hmmm, how shall I celebrate? Leave me a comment on any of today’s (May 3rd’s) blog posts telling me your favorite thing about National Scrapbook Day, and perhaps I will choose one or two people to send a little gift too ;)!

Hybrid page using free NSD template

I resized the template down to 8×8 to make a digital page out of it last night and printed it. Then, this morning I threw together this quick and easy 12×12 hybrid page :)! I used Rue 88 digital coordinates for the digital part, and Rue 88 cardstock and chipboard for the physical part (plus some Prima flowers, of course)!

Don’t miss the freebies at these other participating blogs – check back if you don’t see the freebies yet – they’re from lots of different time zones, so they could be snoozing right now :)!

Happy National Scrapbook Day!

Well, this has been a fantastic scrappin’ week for me! So many great developments :). On Tuesday, I finished creating my very own digital scrapbooking kit. On Wednesday, I found out that I was chosen to be part of the design team at my LSS – it’s my first time being on a design team, and I’m so excited :).  On Thursday, I offered you all a little flower freebie, which has had such a great response, and I have been showered with sweet comments here and over at 4shared! Yesterday, I finally finished my huge scraproom organization project!!!  I posted the before and after pics in this thread in the Scrapbook Lifestyle forum. 

I was originally planning to attend a crop at my LSS today, but I didn’t register in time, so they are totally booked.  So instead I plan on scrapping at home in my fresh and new looking scraproom :).

I plan to also be stopping by these NSD hot spots today, so if you see me (screen name “Scrapbook Ideas” or “JessGordon”), say hi!

Folk Art Kit at Song Bird Avenue

This GORGEOUS kit that I instantly fell in love with is now available at a brand new site called Songbird Avenue. This completely beautiful site that donates 100% of it profits to charity! And what makes the first kit all the more lovely is that one of the contributing designers is none other than Shabby Princess :).
