National Scrapbooking Day!

Yesterday was National Scrapbooking Day! Which was perfect timing, because I had recently been contemplating trying to get back into scrapbooking, so this just reinforced that desire. I was a scrapbooker before I was a cardmaker, it's how I entered into the world of papercrafting. I have a whole shelf of scrapbooks about the vacations we've been on PK (pre-kids!). But since having kids, I've done nada. The kids LOVE looking at my travel books, so I know I really need to get to work on their books, they will enjoy them so much! So... here's my initial attempt at returning to the world of scrapbooking!

I used the Hero Arts Clouds stamp, cut out with the Tim Holtz Styled Labels die. I made a little banner for the title, since banners seem to be all the rage these days. Nothing fancy - I'm not much of a scrapper, really - but I had a lot of fun making this page, and I know Carter will love it, and that's what really matters! Yay!!

I probably won't share many scrapbook pages here, but I thought I'd share this one since it's NSD and all. By the way, did you know that Hero Arts has a little NSD contest going on? Check it out HERE.

Thanks for stopping by,

  • Stamps: S5215 Clouds from Hero Arts
  • Paper: Kraft, Red, White
  • Ink: Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, Copic multiliner
  • Accessories: Making Memories Cheeky Shimmer Stickers, circle punch, staples, machine stitching, older letter stickers I have no idea where I got them, journaling from PC (Bradley Hand font)
