American Crafts NSD Blog Hop

4 May 2013


Welcome to the American Crafts National Scrapbook Day Blog Hop! Today we celebrate scrapbooking and all the joy and memories it brings! If you have followed the hop order, you have come from Carina's blog. I am the last stop before you head back to the American Crafts "headquarters" ;) ! You might have noticed but all the DT girls have a little challenge that might just get you scrapbooking today. Don't forget to leave a comment on the American Crafts blog to have the chance to win a super duper prize. I too have a little something up for grabs. I'll be giving away a $10 gift voucher (a lot easier as shipping from Europe to the USA is hefty). All you have to do is leave a comment in the comment section. 

Here is the layout I created for this special day. I used my new favourite product: MODELING PASTE. I applied a thin layer onto a mask and then let it dry. It creates a beautiful textured design.  My challenge is to GET ARTSY. Use gesso, modeling paste, watercolours, ...... and have fun! 







Here is the full blog hop list:


Your next stop is the American Crafts blog.

Happy National Scrapbooking Day.
