National Scrapbook Day Projects

I am finally getting around to posting some pics from my National Scrapbook Day fun.  My LSS (Scrapper's Edge) hosts an awesome day every year for NSD.  The first half of the day is usually a smattering of classes, followed by a crop in the evening from 3pm to midnight, with food, games and prizes for 25 crafty ladies.

The first class I attended in the morning was Pixie Stick class, which is a childrens class,  taught by my very talented friend, Saundra James.   We made bottle cap charms.  Estella made an awesome fairy collaged pendant, and I made a super-cute magnet.  I have no idea where Estella has hidden her necklace away, but I do have pics of my magnet that I made.  

How cute is that!?  It's a little french bulldog wearing a crown.  Too cute!
Saundra also taught a class using the new Tim Holtz dies.  We made a beautiful flower with his flower die and some used books and glimmer mists.  

And we made a very cool looking ornament out of grungeboard with the bird and cage die.

In addition to these projects, I took two classes taught by Ranger Certified Instructor,  Sondra Kirtley.  Every year for NSD Sondra designs a layout all about NSD.  Last year, I got a chance to preview the layout she had designed for NSD 2009, and I dressed myself and my daughter in clothing that would coordinate with my layout! 

This is such a great idea, Sondra actually takes photos of all of the participants throughout the day, and prints them for us to use on our layouts,  so we could actually have a photo of ourselves working on our layout-to put on our layout!  How great is that?  This year Sondra even emailed me a preview peek of her design so I could plan my wardrobe accordingly.  I tell you-it doesn't get any better than that!

Here are two cards that Sondra K. designed for us to make on NSD also.  I love anything with dimension, bling and kraft card stock!


  1. I love everything you made. You have so much creative talent. I am so in love with Tim Holtz dies but didn't know he had a flower one. Gonna have to add that to my wish list.

  2. Great job! Wish I could have been there with you.
