National Scrapbook Day a Success!

I hope that everyone had a great National Scrapbook Day. I accomplished what I set out to do and which was to complete one album. Here are a few pages of the Easter Scrapbook Album that I would like to share with you.

I wanted the pages to have a nice spring look so I gathered up all the April scapbooking ideas I could. Some of our family from the East Coast joined us in the great southwest for the week of Easter and I wanted to capture in this scrapbook everything that we did in one week. My niece is in these pictures with us and her fantastic smile will put a smile on anyone’s face.


I also got creative for the last page of my scrapbook and did what I call “A Week in Review”. I wrote down just a little one line caption of what we did each day, and then added some embellishments to coincide with what we did.


I feel good about accomplishing what I did and we now have an Easter Scrapbook that we can enjoy forever. What did you do on National Scrapbooking Day?

Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!

Celebrating One Month at a Time….April Scrapbooking Ideas

If you are overwhelmed with the idea of Scrapbooking and Journaling, why not take the approach of Celebrating one month at time.

I write in a journal every day. Some may call it writing in a diary, I call it journaling. I write down things that I have done that day, how I was feeling, what struck me funny, what made me sad. I also always have a camera with me whenever I leave my house. My friends call me “Auntie Flash”, because I am always taking pictures of something.

Since the month of April is now in the history books, I am going to make a Scrapbook page just for the month of April. I have pretty cool April Scrapbooking ideas. I will go through my journal, take a highlight from each day and some pictures that I have taken during the month and let my artsy juices flow. I am going to incorporate my own handwriting along with some computer generated thoughts that I will print it out on cool paper.

Some April Scrapbooking Ideas that you can add to your scrapbook page can consist of; April fools, Easter, Passover, Earth Day, and some birthdays and anniversaries were on my calendar; maybe you had some on yours as well.

This also is a good way to use seasonal papers and embellishments that you have hanging around your craft studio, or a great reason to go and buy some new ones. For example, you can use bunny or Easter egg brads to adhere your scrapbook page. There are so many ribbons with the theme of Easter and spring. The same goes for paper, stickers, rub-ons, and anything else that you can think of.

Join me on this April scrapbook challenge. It will be fun. One month at a time.

Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
