Happy National Scrapbooking Day!! Plus a sneak peek!

Hello there, Connie Nichol here today wishing you all a very happy National Scrapbooking Day.  It is  an unofficial holiday observed every year on the first Saturday of May and an opportunity to celebrate our hobby and share it with others.  I have been scrapbooking since 2002 and my love for preserving memories has not waned a single bit since that time.  And that's what it's all about - preserving memories.  We forget, so quickly, the details of why we took a photograph, when it was taken and sometimes even who is in the photo.  Be sure to capture the story behind the picture;  at the very least, jot down the date and the names of people in the photos.

I am very excited to show you a very sneak peek of one of the Way with Words dies that will soon be released by Elizabeth Crafts Designs.  Stay tuned for further information.....  The word  'Memories', in Suzanne Cannon's beautiful calligraphy, is a die that is just perfect for many scrapbook page titles, either alone or paired with other words as I have done here.

This is a simple layout, using mostly just cardstock and a variety of Elizabeth Craft Design dies but the memories it captures makes me smile every time I look at it.  These are the Way with Words dies that I used - Memories (not yet released), Friends, the 'with' from With Sympathy and the Flourish from Calligraphic Elements 1.  

I also used other Elizabeth Crafts Designs dies - the palm tree, the stitched circles and the crab.  The leaves on the layout are ECD velvet leaf stickers that I grabbed from their clearance section, but you could easily cut these leaves in whatever colour you wanted with the ECD Triple Leaf die.  I also used a little of the Through the Lens Wood patterned paper.  Happy Scrapbooking!


Supplies Used:  Core'dinations cardstock, Elizabeth Craft Designs dies, stickers and patterned paper, Colorbox Smooch ink, Brother sewing machine.
