Mini Crop - National Scrapbooking Day - Chat

Postby Funky Fairy » May 6th, '17, 7:07 am

Hi Ladies!!

I'm setting up a place for all the creative chat today.
Feel free to introduce yourself and say 'Hi'.

I'm Lisa and I'm your host :)
I live in England and have been scrapbooking for about 14yrs or so.
I love it and rarely go a day without doing something creative in one way or another.

Hi! I'll be in and out and hopefully scrap and create a thing or two today because although I don't scrap every day, I still love all the goodies, friendships and fun!

Happy NSD everyone!

I have my 3rd cup of coffee going now (stayed up too late last night) and am starting to gather some photos and ideas for pages. Just went and had a look around the internet to see all the iNSD challenges, and the best ones are here! I'll be playing along until nap time. ;D

Hi guys! Popping in to say hi this morning! We just got back from T-ball, which is probably my favorite thing ever. Now we are on our way out again. The older kids are in a dance at the capitol. I have to bring the costumes and I'm face painting all the performers. The kids have a playdate later and I hope I can get some time scrap then!

HI I am Jennifer. I am presently in a nasty divorce from my husband of 14 years. I haven't been able to scrapbook since his friend committed suicide and spurred on all this mess. I told myself that I was not going to miss out on NSD and that I needed to spend today just being creative. Of course I may spend more time organizing my stash in its new space than actually crafting but I am still happy to be here and doing this for me. Hope everyone has a great day!

Hi Niru,

Lovely to see you. Sounds like a busy but fun day.
I hope you get some scrap time in :)

Hi everyone!

I'm Lydia from BC, Canada. I haven't been around here in far too long, but was overjoyed to see that there is a mini-crop going on here today. CD crops are the best! I've been out to a fencing tournament this morning and might do a bit of gardening this afternoon since it's the first nice day in a very wet spring. But will be spending most of the afternoon and evening in my craft room. Can't wait to dig into the Scrap Yourself and Journaling challenges. ;D

Jennifer, so glad you're in your scrap room today. Hope you find solace there.

I've been working away at Challenge #2 (journaling) this afternoon, incorporating the mist stencil technique that Lisa showed us in her video. I've never misted a stencil before, so this is new to me.

My fellas just came home with dinner, so I'm taking a break, but will try to finish up and post by tomorrow.

I have gotten some organizing done, though nowhere near complete. ;) However, I have enough done that I have been working on pages. I have finished one and am on to the second one. I am just not sure yet how I am going to upload any photos to the site as my camera computer cord is missing and my computer doesn't use a memory card. But, at least I am enjoying myself! Hope you are all too! ^-^

Hi Ladies,
I hope you've had some fun scrapping today.

It's been a work day here but with a family meal and also a walk thrown in :)

Hi Lisa! Glad you are having fun! I have managed to complete 3 layouts with 2 smaller gift size versions of the layouts so a total of 5 layouts. Now I am taking a break spending time with my sister that flew in to the state for a few days and having dinner before I go back to scrapping. I really want to finish all the fun challenges that I found on 4 different sites! I really missed doing this! It is so fun! :D
