National Scrapbooking Day: 12 Ways To Celebrate

Apr 27, 2008
Scrapbookers have their own holiday. National Scrapbooking Day is the first Saturday in May. As the hobby has grown so has the popularity of this celebration of all

things scrapbooking. Don't let the day go by without making it special. How can you celebrate? Here a just a few ideas to make this year's National Scrapbooking Day


1. Check out your local scrapbooking store to see what activities they are offering. Many local stores have sales, but quite a few offer make-and-take projects,

special workshops, or crop time just for National Scrapbooking Day.

2. Learn a new scrapbooking technique. You can do this all on your own. Pick up a scrapbook magazine and try a new skill. It can be something simple or complex.

Now make a page layout using that technique.

3. Shop for a new scrapbook tool. We all have one of the latest tools on our scrapbooking wishlists. Indulge yourself this May with one on your list. Take it

home and try it out on a new project.

4. Gather your friends for a crop party. Throw a National Scrapbooking Day party with your fellow scrapbookers. Just add some refreshments and lots of workspace for

scrapbooking and you're ready to enjoy your favorite activity with your friends.

5. Browse your local bookstore for a new scrapbook magazine or book. It's fun to find out what the latest trends in scrapbooking are. Books and magazines are a

great way to keep up to date on your design skills.

6. Shop for new supplies online. Online scrapbooking stores are known for running fantastic sales on the first weekend in May just for National Scrapbook Day. You'll

find some of the best deals on Saturday, but many will run the sales through the whole weekend. Check your favorite online stores first, because some run the best

savings during early bird hours or night owl specials. Be sure you know what time zone they are in so you don't miss out.

7. Introduce a friend to scrapbooking. Do you have a friend who has always wanted to learn how to make an album? National Scrapbooking Day is a great time to show

her how. Either invite her over to scrapbook with you or take her to an event at your local store.

8. Attend an online crop. Check scrapbooking message boards for online crops. Many offer virtual crops. You and other participants scrapbook at the same time and chat with each other online as you create pages. Many crops will have challenges to see who gets the most pages done. Some will have contests, and some may have a gallery where you can upload your designs.

9. Take some photos. If you can't get out to a scrapbooking event, take some time during the day to photograph the special people in your life. Upload them to your

favorite online printer and start to plan your next album.

10. Organize your scrapbooking space. You just might find some supplies you forgot all about. A little organization can help you get more pages done the next time you sit down to create a page layout.

11. Attend a scrapbook convention or go on a scrapbook retreat. Check your area for expos and scrapbooking events. The weekend of National Scrapbooking Day might be a great time to organize a getaway with your girlfriends.

12. Read "A Page Out of Life" by Kathleen Reid. This novel is about a group of very different women who belong to a local scrapbooking club. While they share their love of scrapbooking, they uncover secrets hidden in their photos. The book will be released just in time for National Scrapbooking Day.

Enjoy this year's National Scrapbooking Day! No matter how you decide to spend the day, remember to enjoy your hobby with family and friends.
