My Pink Stamper National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop

Happy National Scrapbook Day! 

If you are coming from my friend Carissa's blog "Sprinkled with Glitter", then you are in the right  place! :)

For this special My Pink Stamper blog hop, we decided "anything goes" as far as what kind of project we made or which My Pink Stamper stamps we used. 

I don't know about you, but I CAN'T WAIT for summer to get here!  Every year, my husband and I try to find time to go to Panama City Beach for a few days.  There's something about the sound of the waves hitting the shore that is so relaxing. 

The problem is, every time we go on vacation, I take lots of pictures but rarely do I write down what we did each day.  So, I decided to make a library pocket album  for our next trip.  It contains lots of tags inside so I can keep track of all our fun activities. 


Recipe

Create a Critter Cartridge - crab cut at 2 1/4"; sun cut at 2 1/4", whale cut at 2 1/2" (fit to length button turned on); sandcastle cut at 2 1/2 (fit to length button turned on).
Life's a Beach cartridge - lawn chair cut at 2 1/4"

And now....how about a GIVEAWAY?!  Robyn was kind enough to allow each of us to give away one stamp set of our choice.  I thought in honor of NSD, what set could be more appropriate than the My Pink Stamper Scrap-alicious set?


 Just leave a comment for your chance to win.  The winner will have one week to contact me to claim their prize.

Your next stop on the hop is my friend Helen.  And in case you've missed anyone along the way, here is the entire list again:



Thanks for stopping by.  Have a nice weekend!

Hi, this is my first comment on your blog! :) I just bought a Cricut Expression yesterday online and I'm so excited for it to arrive. I'm new to the crafting world but got my interest really piqued through Pinterest. I'm looking forward to seeing all the projects you showcase on your site. In honor of National Scrapbooking Day I'm hoping to find some projects to create with my new purchase. Thank you!

very cute mini.love all the fun images.

Sheri R said...

What a cute idea! I may have to try that, because I would think the excitement of the activity could be captured in words at that time. Much easier than months later trying to remember the feelings at the time the picture was taken. Thanks for the idea!

Love the little pocket album. Thanks!

Val said...

What a great idea! I do the same thing....so many pics, but no journaling. This little book is the perfect solution. And since u have it made ahead of time, each night when ur back at the hotel u can write down what u did that day! I love it! TFS!

Felicia said...

The album is adorable!! That is such a great idea to write down things on your vacation as you go. I know you think you can remember everything that happened, but once you get back home you lose the details of your trip.

Audrey said...

Love the album, easy and fun. Thank you for the chance to win! God Bless

Maria said...

What a great idea!!! I need to make one of these for myself.

Missy said...

Great album Shelley. Good idea for how to keep track of vacation memories, the sentiments & images are perfect!!
