Ten Ways to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day (May 3,2008)

May 3, 2008 in Scrapbooking
  1. Take some time to GET ORGANIZED! If you know where all your ‘stuff’ is it’s easy to jump into a project anytime.
  2. Make a page for a friend. A layout celebrating baby’s first birthday will be a cherished gift for the mom of a busy toddler. At least baby will have one page in her scrapbook! :-)   
  3. Try something different. Use your scrapbooking supplies to make party decorations or to create a home décor item. 
  4. Go Shopping! It’s always fun to find new products!
  5. Take some time to reflect on the importance of what you do. Not only do you have the chance to express your creativity through your artful scrapbooks, you’re also a family historian! Be proud of the work you do that many generations to come will enjoy.

  6. Make a page for yourself. Have someone take a photo of you scrapbooking and create a page celebrating YOU, the scrapbooker.
  7. Attend a group crop event. Surrounding yourself with others dedicated to your craft can be the perfect inspiration. Use my Crop Party invitation to organize one of your own.
  8. Spend a happy hour looking through scrapbook magazines. Mark or tear out inspirational pages and products that you’d like to try.
  9. Try a new technique. National Scrapbook Day is the perfect time to learn a new skill or technique.
  10. Organize a supply swap with scrapbooking friends. A swap is a great way to clear out duplicates, papers that don’t work thematically, or excess embellishments as well as to build your stash with excess items from your friends.
  11. Bonus idea. Send photos of some of your favorite scrapbooking projects to Debbie! I'd love to see what you are up to!
