This Saturday we scrapbookers will celebrate National Scrapbook Day, so we thought we’d start the celebration a little early with an NSD Week Design Team Blog Hop today! Our designers have whipped up some amazing inspiration for you, and we’ve got a fabulous giveaway that you won’t want to miss as well. Here’s how this works:
Visit each of the designers’ blogs listed below to see their beautiful projects and leave a comment. Then return here to the We R blog and leave a comment with a project you saw during the blog hop that inspired you. We’ll randomly select one comment to win the new Flower Punch Board from We R. With the simplicity of punching and scoring, beautiful flowers can be created from 3” to 9” in diameter using any paper, in addition to creating leaves in multiple sizes. These customized flowers are perfect for any special occasion such as baby showers, weddings, birthdays, holidays, parties and more.
If you haven’t yet seen the Flower Punch Board in action, check out this video here.
While you’re here, we’ve got a little spring scrapbooking inspiration for you using the new Farmer’s Market 12×12 Page Kit. This kit includes plenty of papers and stickers to create several full size scrapbook pages like the one below. I used my Floral Burst Lucky 8 Punch to create a border along the right side of the page, and added some yellow hand stitching with my Sew Easy Tool. I love that the Washi Tape colors match with this and all of We R’s paper collections. That makes crafting so much easier!
The kits also include paper that can be cut apart into Albums Made Easy journaling cards to create easy layouts with whichever Photo Sleeve you select. Here’s an Albums Made Easy page I created. For this page I used the cards together with some stickers from the kit. Again, it was easy to add some Washi Tape accents since they coordinate perfectly!
Here’s the list of designer blogs to visit. Start at the top and work your way down. Each blog should have a list of all the blogs to visit so you can find where you need to go next. If you get “lost” at any point during the blog hop you can always return here to get back on track.
