National Scrapbooking Day


Happy National Scrapbooking Day to our friends in cyberspace!

Are you scrapping away today?

Are you hitting up the sales at your local scrapbook store?

Are you cropping into the night while eating Hot Tamales, Snickers, and Diet Coke? (Oh you're not? I guess you know what we'll be doing tonight!)

QuicKutz wants to reward you, our favorite crafters, with a sweepstakes to win some of our new large-format dies. To enter to win, simply leave a comment telling us what you plan to do on National Scrapbooking Day. (And if it's just running errands and chasing kids, that's okay, too.)

Have fun today!

I can't think of a better way to spend NSD then to be in my craft room scrapping away with my Quickutz! Went shopping yesterday and I'm going to scrap the day away today and then go out to eat with hubby and come home and scrap some more! Happy NSD!

*charygirl said...

Getting my scrap on of course! But it also happens to be free comic book day at our local comic book store and if you wait around long enough Darth Vader's going to show up. It's like small town Comic Con for my boys! So, I'll be a good Mom and take a break and let them get their comic on. ;)

Gail said...

I have a lot of birthday cards to make this month - the QK embossing folders and Letterpress plates will make them stand out! Would love to get more dies though!

Lots of soccer games today, but I'm hoping to find some time later today to do some scrappy stuff... some new QK dies to add to my collection would be the icing on the cake for me today!

My ideal plans are to scrap,surf & blog (possibly at the same time!)....but since it's a beautiful day out I'm sure we'll end up outside. Which is ok too since I'm positive my camera will be with me & that'll give me MORE pics to scrap! LOL!! Happy NSD to everyone!!!

I watched the footballgame my son played, in the pouring rain. Very cold. And I forgot my camera, so I couldn't take any pictures, so stupid.
After driving home (2 hours) I did the shopping for next week, and now I'm making some cards. I have to do some scrapping on NSD!

Debora said...

I went to Stamp Your Heart Out in Claremont Calif. and bought some QK for 50% off! I'm wondering if I should go back tomorrow and buy Studio in the 2X2 size and maybe some more dies (50% off...how can I resist)?

Working on a card swap that's due Wednesday and making 3 birthday cards and a few Mother's Day cards!

PamS said...

I am sitting at home looking through my bookmarks on my computer. I have walked the dogs and have the rest of the evening to myself. I have some pictures to scrap and I also need to make some cards. The last part will involve some QuicKutz, I am sure.

Chelle said...

I took my daughter to her dance rehearsal, then assisted a photographer at a wedding (turned out the groom was one of my cubs 13 years ago). I was going to scrapbook but a headache nixed that plan.

Just Jen said...

I moved a couple days ago so I spent most of my day unpacking boxes. I wish I could have been scrapbooking!!!

marlis said...

Had a great day demoing the epic 6 and using the new box die!! how cool that is. WE made some cute little boxes with that die and some monograms. Couldn't have had more fun if I had been scrapbooking for myself.

*sigh* I would've loved to be scrapping today, but I had kid events all day, and then a neighbor's party tonight. I am getting to blog surf my favorite scrappy sites tonight, though...so hopefully I can scrap a bit tomorrow! Happy NSD - and thanks for the chance to win. :)

Scrappin Cheryl said...

I belong to an awesome group of wonderful women - we call ourselves the Mag7! We all scrapped together in one of our homes and had a GREAT time! Love these girls and love to scrap with them!

Hit up a local warehouse sale, made a few baby announcements, and make and takes at Archiver's. That's a lot for me - maybe it should be once a week!

Fay said...

I went to several LSS to buy supplies. They all had sales, so I was very happy to get what I want for a great price! :)

Lorraine said...

Getting ready for a crafting weekend away in 2 weeks and it takes time to pack when you normally only scrap at home! Plus the weather is gorgeous and family movie time must be squeezed in also.

Anonymous said...

Doing something different this year. I am cleaning out my scrapbook room for an upcoming scrapbook yard sale. No worries, not parting with any of my QK products! Anyway, it is time well spent. Out with the old and hopefully in with the new from the proceeds from the sale and benefiting other scrappers at the same time.

Also blog hopping and watching some tutorials on making all of the fabulous flowers that I'm seeing on layouts these days.

Later, I'll be working on some unfinished projects that I came across today. It's amazing what you find when you clean - LOL!

Great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win!

Had a wonderful weekend scrapbooking a story telling book on my mother's life for the next family reunion. Had even more fun using the basekball QK die for the pages on the mothers PTA Basketball game from many years ago. Now I get to play with all my new dies that I just got. Can't wait to try them out. I love the ideas I've gotten from viewing everyone's pictures and suggests. Thanks

I am actually making pages (for photos I haven't even taken yet) and ordering dies online! Oh, and I am reading "How to be an explorer of the world" by Keri Smith, to brush up on my journaling skills and to get ideas on how to photograph my real life.

CardMakingGirl said...

Trying to scrapbook right now!!!

Vicki said...

I wanted to participate in the lss NSD crop but couldn't because my air force son is home from a 7 month deployment so he gets all my time right now. Hubby did give me some money to go shopping when I have some time. I was able to make 4 pages while the guys were watching a movie. I participated in some of the NSD challenges on the Scrapyland blog. It was fun, wish I could have done more but was glad to get 4 pages done.

I wish I could say I had been able to craft the day away! It was my birthday, and I got to clean house for company, go to my son's baseball game, then got home in time to order pizza and fall asleep watching "Twilight" - which was at my request!!! I did get the matchbook die today, though!!

Charlie said...

I spent the weekend preparing cards and information material for a future cardmaking day to support the Danish soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Last meeting before it all goes in action is this morning. Busy and exciting weekend and we can't wait to put our QK dies in action for this good cause. =0)
