So it's National Scrapbooking Day, but I am being super cheesy and saying that NSD stands for "Nora's Special Day" (told you it was dumb). I made the incredibly selfish decision to ask my mother if we could delay plans to clean out her garage so I could spend the day scrapbooking. After this kind of bad news week I really wanted a fun day. A day full of music, snacks and patterned paper.
It's a good thing I have such a nice mom.
Speaking of my nice mom...I have shared before on this day how she is responsible for getting me started on this hobby fourteen years ago tomorrow. Last year I shared my favorite layouts from over the years to celebrate the day. A couple of years ago I spent the day scrapbooking and updated the post with each layout and that is my plan today.
Every time I get one finished I'll post it, but to make it more fun I will share a little extra of what I used to make the layout. Just leave a comment on the post and I will post winners on Monday morning. I'd love to know what you have going on for NSD...or if you're making layouts today also please share a link because I'd love to see them.
Here's the first one (that I actually made over the last couple of days)
I have a couple extra tags and frames along with some tiny scallops punched from the black text paper.
I kind of kept adding to details to this one.
I packaged up some extra scallop "eggs", some flowers, labels and a strip of masking tape to giveaway.
And you have a minute check out my mom's lengthy comment...she can tease me like no one else can.
And yes Mom, ALL of my creativity came from my crafty father.
Had to document this...hopefully so I can look back on it one day when I've got it all figured out.
I punched extra photo corners, stamped two messy "For Your Information" title boxes and have a blue lined journaling box with a gray tree stamped in the corner waiting to be sent out to someone.
Okay change of plans on the cousin layout...that'll be next...took this photo this morning, printed it, and got it onto a silly layout...
I have an envelope with a bunch of polka dot daisies and green paper to make stems and leaves...and a strip of stamped deer...because every layout needs stamped deer, right?
The cousin page is done...probably will be the last one I share for the day...
I have some punched houndstooth stars & stamped polka dot ones to share.
So that's five envelopes total to share...make sure you leave a comment if you'd like one.
Thanks for hanging out with me while I scrapped...NSD was pretty much a perfect day.
