Happy National Scrapbooking Day!

I hope you are enjoy some crafty fun this weekend! I have to say that I had a little of my creativity come back for a simple page yesterday afternoon that I’m actually happy with… and it’s the first in my “official” wedding album. You see, I’ve scrapped a bunch of my wedding photos, but there in all different styles and colors and I want to create an album that is sort of a unified look for the wedding. I’ve decided to use the Parisian Breeze Speciality paper from Stampin’ Up as my color scheme. It’s very pretty and classic. I didn’t want to make the pages too over the top either as I want this to be a classic album rather than trendy. So here is the first page:

The journaling reads: 1. The ceremony Shoe 2. The dress 3. The centerpiece 4. The cake 5. The Provincetown Inn 6. The reception shoe
Very simple, but I’m happy. Hopefully I’ll be able to get a few more pages — either of the wedding or anything else for that matter – done before the end of the weekend. I love how you get the “bug” once you finish a page… It’s like all you can think about is getting back to scrappin’!
Anyway, enough about me…. how are your scrappin’ projects goin’? Well, I’m hoping I may be able to help with a little giveaway! In honor of National Scrapbooking Day I’m giving away a package of the 12 X 12 Pink Pirouette patterns designer series paper from Stampin’ Up. It’s a very cool color – one that I will be sad to see go when the In Colors change this year!
If you’d like to enter to win just tell me your favorite Stampin’ Up product in the comments below and I’ll draw a winner next weekend – by May 10.
Also be sure to check out my website for a couple of new Stampin’ Up promotions to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day. The first is a free designer series paper campaign where if you buy three you get one free and the second is a special where you can sign on as a demonstrator for just $75 with a special scrapbooking themed starter kit.

Happy Scrappin’!

    How can I choose a favorite, I love it all. If I had to pick, I would say the stamp sets, I can’t choice a specific one. I do love the paper, punches, inks, chalks accessories and embellishments too though!

    Oh my, I love the papers … the colors and the patterns are gorgeous! I recently bought several stamp sets that I love too. But, I’m with Tracy, how can I choose just one item? Although … after giving it some thought, I believe my one Stampin’Up! favorite would be the instructor, for without her, I wouldn’t be making any of these new, wonderful designs. Card-making is such fun!!! Thank you, Jen!

    Have loved all the stamps I’ve gotten since my first Stampin’ up party in CT with my daughter and her friends (? 1995). The papers are the best. Can’t name any one thing except perhaps the demonstator and the friends I’ve made along the way. Thanks,Jen

    Well there are just too many cool things to pick from. But if I had to pic one, it would be the paper. I love all of the colors and how they match perfectly. HAppy NSD to you too!
