This is the first year in YEARS that I am not attending a National Scrapbook Day event ON National Scrapbook Day!!!! It's a little nuts. My good friend Jen Cushman is visiting California and teaching metalsmithng classes this weekend so we will be hanging out on the actual National Scrapbook Day. On Sunday, I'll be heading to Orange County for a local crop with my pals from Who Gives A Scrap?.
Not being at a crop on National Scrapbook Day got me thinking – what would I do if I had no local stores or events to go to on National Scrapbook Day? Well, crop online of course! I've gathered up all of the online National Scrapbook Day events I could find and put them all here in one place for you. If you see another one or you're hosting one, please add the link in the comments!
I was surprised there weren't many online events BUT the ones that are going on are really amazing!!! Check out this list:
Scrapbook.com is hosting an all day long online party with challenges, prizes and more. Check out the challenges, even if you are going to a traditional crop, because some of the contests don't end until June 1 so you can always enter later (and win hopefully!)
