I cannot begin to describe how excited, nervous, flustered and flattered I was when I received an invitation to take part in the National Scrapbooking Day celebrations at Big Picture Classes! To be called one of the '10 experts' and pictured there alongside people like Ali Edwards, Becky Higgins, Stacey Julian, Heidi Swapp..... well basically the whole darn lot of them... is like something out of a dream. I'm still can't believe it's real!
But I'll let you in on the secret of Trick No.1 and that's to scrap with a kit or collection. Basically anything where the difficult choices of which products to use has already been made for you. Today for my layout I'm using the Blue Note Kit from Studio Calico - which was/is one of the kits available to purchase for just $10, so many of you might now have this kit in your hands?
But whatever you're using, and however you're preserving your memories I hope you're enjoying National Scrapbooking Day. It's not too late to sign up and register for the Big Picture Classes 10k event. Each of the 10 teachers are sharing their own video with tips about speedy scrapbooking, and after having watched them all myself I can tell you I've learned so much and gained a really fresh perspective on this hobby.
Don't forget when you're sharing your layouts on Instagram to use the tag #NSD10k and @BigPictureClasses to be in the running for some fabulous prizes as well as help us achieve our goal of swamping Instagram with 10 000 layouts. Check out all the details here.
I'll be back later with my Studio Calico NSD layout as well. But in the meantime, check out all the events on the blog.
