American Crafts National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop


National Scrapbook Day is a thing?! Yes! An excuse to scrapbook all day long, enter challenges, connect with fellow scrappers? Yes! Maybe it should be a monthly thing? Yes! ;) The American Crafts Design Team had to get in on the action, of course. If you're here on the hop you've probably heard that we've decided to celebrate by coming up with our own challenges. So fun! Yes? I love a good challenge.

Mine is to create a traditional scrapbook page using a Project Life card. Here's what I came up with…




In the interest of celebrating all things scrappy and all of you scrappy people I decided to offer a giveaway. To enter you just need to become a follower of this blog and write a comment about what your favorite day to celebrate is… Mothers Day, Secretary Day, Chocolate Appreciation Day. I plan to give away a large assortment of Project Life cards as well as some Studio Calico stamps and a few other surprises! 

Happy Scrapbooking!
