Getting ready for National Scrapbooking Day!

Hello lovely likers!

It just occurred to me that you may not see much happening in here in the next couple of weeks as I get ready for NSD.

What is NSD, I hear you ask? It’s National Scrapbooking Day! Funny it’s called “National”, because it certainly is not just national, but INTERnational! The day started in the US and hence why it’s called National, however this “holiday” has been adopted by many other countries in the world! It will be happening on the weekend of 5th-7th of May.

I am taking place in two separate events (although they are both connected!). The first one is for For the Love of Pretty Paper facebook group. The event starts on Friday evening and finished on Sunday mid afternoon. In these two days there will be lots of challenges, prizes, games and chat. I am taking part in 5 challenges! Since I am hosting, I get to know the challenges in advance and prepare for them.

The second event is for UK Scrap Addicts. This event only takes place on Saturday, but there will also be lots of videos, challenges, prizes and blog posts. I am taking part in five of the challenges, so that means that I am very busy at the moment!

Hopefully you will be able to join us either on Facebook, on the UKSA blog and on YouTube that weekend!

Good morning!

Today I am in the Midlands taking part in another fantastic Birds of a Feather workshop with Paige Evans. I honestly can’t wait to show you all the gorgeous layouts that we are going to be creating today!

However, before I can show you any of that, I have to showcase my very first layout as a UK Scrap Addicts Design Team member!

Please pop over the UKSA blog for more info on the layout πŸ™‚

UK Scrap Addicts

Hello all!

Today I want to tell you about UK Scrap Addicts, a new initiative to bring a spotlight to British scrapbookers. It is run by a bunch of very passionate ladies, and the aim is to make the world realise that we are not a “small fish” at all!

This is their mission statement:

β€œThe UK is a small fish in the large pond of scrapbooking, and perhaps sometimes we feel a little overlooked. We want to recognise and showcase the UK scrap scene, UK designers and UK manufacturers, both small and large. Our plans include increasing the number of UK scrapbookers and showing the world we have a huge amount of talent to share.”

-To recognise the scrapbook scene in the United Kingdom, UK designers and UK talent.

-To grow the UK scrapbooking community; to encourage new scrappers.

-To share the UK scrap scene with the world.

They did a callout for a Creative Team back in early February and I emailed them straight away. This is something that I feel passionate about and I was eager to participate! So I was completely over the moon when I was chosen to be part of the team! Just today the team was announced over at Instagram.

So stay tuned! Blog posts will start appearing on their blog very very soon. There is also the aforementioned Instagram account and also a Youtube channel! Exciting times!
