happy scrapbook day!

((If you are here for the inspiring Kiki Art Blog Hop(scotch), click here.))

It’s May 1st, and that means it’s a day to celebrate our LOVE for scrapbooking! I wanted to wish everyone a wonderful and creative HAPPY SCRAPBOOK DAY! In honor of this creative holiday, I thought I’d do a giveaway of my own. Just comment to this post by Sunday, May 2nd at 11:59 pm, and tell me what your favorite part about scrapbooking is! By doing so, you’ll be entered to win this:

To increase your chances of winning, share the giveaway elsewhere online, or subscribe to my blog via email. You can do this by entering your email on the left side bar. …and just so you know, I will NEVER share your email with anyone. 🙂

I also wanted to draw a name from the IFS Autism blog hop that I participated in not too long ago. Congratulations to…

Shoot me an email at redoaklines@gmail.com, and I’ll send you some scrapbook goodies to play with.

On another note, I can’t believe that we are almost half way into this year. With that being said, the beginning of the month means that Imaginisce has a new sketch! This month, the talented Robyn shared the following:

When I first saw this sketch, I wanted to use Imaginisce‘s To Love & Cherish line. However, instead of using these papers as a love/wedding theme, I created a Halloween layout! What is with me with taking themed paper and using it for something completely different?! 🙂

…so how in the world did  I turn a wedding theme into a Halloween theme?! I misted various shades of purple and green all over my patterned paper; pretty simple, right?! Also, on the black flowers, I added pops of red using Stickles.

Anyway, enough about my layout, let’s talk about yours. Use the above sketch, and you could be entered to win a handful of goodies from Imaginisce! Remember that the products you use need to be mostly Imaginisce products.

Lastly, don’t forget to visit the blogs listed below. Your name might be selected as the lucky winner to receive FREE products from Imaginisce. Don’t believe me?! …I believe more than two winners were actually selected from my blog comments! 🙂















….and because today is YOUR day as a scrapbooker, if there’s something on your never ending wish list, make sure to pick it up today. Your excuse can be, “…but it’s MY holiday!” 😉

Happy Scrapbook Day to all of you creative ones!

  15. conniemelancon

    Happy NSD! my favorite part is watching my children, grandchildren and my mom when they look at my LO’s. I love the stories that my LO’s are telling and that now those stories have a way to be remembered and told.

  16. My favorite part about scrapping (other than the shopping!) is having a finished product that people can look at from years to come!

  17. Kat

    cute layout with the pups on halloween…i love your talent for turning a specific themed paper into a layout about something completely different (am still amazed at the 4th of july paper on the wedding layout!)

    happy nsd!

  18. My favorite part of scrapbooking is seeing the results, and being able to share them.

  19. Love your layout Sarah! It is really fabulous. You are such a sweetie to list all of our names to make it easier to hop. Must remember to do that next time.

  20. Those are awesome pumpkins on your layout!! Thanks for sharing! My favourite part of scrapbooking….it’s a tie between the classic “preserving my families memories” and the therapy of the art and creating itself. Oh, who am I kidding…I love it all 🙂

  21. Happy NSD Miss Sarah!! The title “Howloween” is seriously so FUNNY! I love it!! Lets see, my favorite part about scrapbooking is playing with buttons and vintage trims. I have a horrible weakness for both 🙂

  22. My favorite part of scrapbooking is knowing I am leaving a creative way for my daughter to look at her pictures. I feel like she will appreciate it more than a regular album.

  23. Woops, think I commented on the wrong post! Love your Halloween work with that paper. Great work Sarah and happy NSD!!!
