National Scrapbooking Day with Stampin'Up!

Every year I wait with great anticipation for this day on the calendar.

Yes! Is coming, this Saturday May 6th is National Scrapbooking Day.

A day to remember all the beautiful memories and do something about them.

It amazes me how many times I think I WILL remember something, and then time flies and the memory of those details is gone.

I don't want to forget the good things...it brings me joy!




Things I discovered in the last months:

1. I like both traditional and pocket pages soooo, I am mixing them.
Allows me to use more pictures and coordinate materials. 


2. I REALLY love starting with the story. 
I used a sheet from Simple Scrapper that helped me to list the stories I wanted to tell. The TV series Duck Dynasty ended on April, it made me realized we will no longer be meeting in the Family room to watch the "newest" episode of Will and Si! Yeah, my kids looove Uncle Si and his craziness. Not all shows we watch with the kids, but Duck Dynasty was one of the fews. The Profit is more for Mom and Daddy time. :)

THAT story, started these pages. 


3. I totally love hiding my journaling. Is so much fun! I love leaving little notes in unexpected places on my pages.
I used a real popcorn bag I had leftover from a party (found them in Michael's) to insert a Project Life card with my journaling. Fun fun!


 4. Sketches make my life easier! 
Plus embellishments make it fun! I found these stickers at a store, since I ALREADY knew I wanted to make this layout I purchased them and used them all! Fun fun! A sketch shared at the Simple Scrapper community helped me with this page.

Jeniffer Wilson, from Simple Scrapper, sent me an email a while ago where she shared her creative process to start scrapbooking. Much of it similar to mine! That was motivating! Check it below!

 Five Step Quick Start for Your Next Layout
  1. Choose 1-4 images that tell a story and make you happy.
  2. Find a sketch or template the fits the number of photos selected.
  3. Select a non-thematic digital or paper kit that goes-with-anything.
  4. Assemble the layout, layering from the bottom up.
  5. Rearrange if needed, adhere and embellish the layout.

Each of these steps can be completed in a separate sitting and can take as little as 10-15 minutes. Set a timer if you need help making decisions. Focus on moving forward over perfection.
