Layouts from NSD Weekend

In honor of National Scrapbooking Day (May 2), I spent my weekend scrapbooking. It was exhilarating. I haven't scrapbooked in quite some time. In fact, the last time I scrapbooked was to work on a baby album for my sister. Besides that, it has been two months since I scrapbooked for me. Unbelievable!

Side note: I go through craft cycles a lot. Sometimes I spend a lot of time scrapping. Other times it might be sewing, cross-stitching, embroidery, cooking, etc. Just depends on my mood.

I participated in two NSD online crops: Two Peas in a Bucket and Studio Calico. I absolutely love Two Peas! There is a great online community there with tons of free classes. Plus, they carry nearly every product I want. Not quite all, but not bad. I try to support my LSS (local scrapbook store), but let's face it - sometimes they don't have what I want, and sometimes they are too expensive! Did you know that Two Peas always has something on sale? Plus, if you save up and have $50 or more to spend, you can use the free shipping code that is in their newsletter.

The other online crop I participated in was Studio Calico. I subscribe to their monthly kits, and let me tell you - I LOVE THEM! Exactly my style! The prices are reasonable and the kits have the coolest looking papers and supplies. Plus they always come with an acrylic stamp designed by Studio Calico. There's a vintage eclectic feel to their stuff. If you haven't checked it out, I urge to you take a look. You'll be tempted, trust me!
