Every year on the first Saturday in May,
National Scrapbook Day Invites us all to Celebrate the Art of Scrapbooking
This year we challenge Scrapbookers to gather the result of “Spring Cleaning” (as we have all been isolated for some time)
Using paper and scraps to compile a layout and share your unique crafting techniques to show off what you can do, while at the same time not letting anything go to waste!
Did you know?
Scrapbooking dates back to the 15th century!
Memory in general is very subjective; a person’s significant memories are unique to that person.
A collection of personally significant images keeps people connected with their unique environment.
May is traditionally the celebration of National Scrapbooking Day and lots of cropping events and get togethers. Due to the current situation we have substituted the absence of a group gathering with a CHALLENGE TO SCRAPBOOKERS!
We have designed a fun project with an opportunity to share your ideas and give everyone a chance to do some creative scrapbooking. Of course there will be prizes!
How to Participate:
1. Go to your paper scraps (I know you have them!)
2. Sort a pile of coordinating colors. Designs don’t matter much. (I chose my favorite teal and green with a violet accent color which happened to be a flower.)
3. Gather shape dies, a ruler, punches and kiwi templates … anything you have to make shapes and borders. Don’t forget a corner rounder!
4. Now move those paper pieces around and design a layout. Below is what I came up with. Hope this inspires you and I don’t mind if your design is so much better!
When you’ve finished playing take a picture of your layout!
