*CLOSED* National Scrapbooking Day *NSD 2010*: 1ST Giveaway!

UPLOADING A VIDEO SOON WITH THE WINNER!!!!



***** NOT MANY DAYS LEFT TIL MAY 1ST!!
HURRY AND LEAVE A COMMENT ..GOOD LUCK EVERYONE! ******
**drawing is May 1st **

NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY (NSD) is right around the corner!!! And this year NSD falls on May 1st - a beautiful HAPPY SATURDAY!! TA-HEEE!!! I have to tell you.. NSD is one my favorite scrappy events! It ranks just below CHA, EXPOs, conventions, ETC.! And this year I'm even more excited because I'm doing a giveaway!

Normally, my NSD day activities are quiet SIMPLE and usually goes something like this:
  • I visit ALL my favorite ON-LINE scrapbooking stores: look for exciting deals/specials, browse creative NSD projects, participate in fun challenges, etc.
  • Days before NSD I do my local scrapbooking store research...I find out if they are having special classes, promotions, sales, whatever? Unfortunately, many of our local scrapbooking business have closed so that doesn't leave me with much to research. So this year I will focus my NSD activities mainly ON-LINE :)
  • I make sure my 'scrapbooking' wish list is updated and sitting right next to my computer monitor.. so when I get into my 'frenzy MUST BUY' state on NSD.. I'll have my little list to help guide me. Sounds like a good plan right? hmm.. I'm curious to see how it goes!
  • Oh! and I have my favorite BLOGs that I love to blog hop on NSD!! :)
  • But lastly, this year for NSD 2010, I want to have JUST A BIT MORE FUN! So, in celebration of National Scrapbooking Day, I will be doing5 'With A Grin' GIVEAWAYS on Saturday May 1st!!
  • So.. while YOUR doing YOUR NSD blog hops...Come join me @ With A Grin on NSD & leave a comment for a chance to win! Just stop by and share how your spending your super fun NSD DAY!! :)
Doesn't May 1st seem so far away... It does to me!! So I'm going to start it off early by posting my 1st NSD Giveaway!!

** A NSD Mini Album Kit ** using all my favorite brands (Webster's Pages, Tim Holtz, Prima, 7 Gypsies, etc.. )




Leave a comment on this post for your chance to win!!!
{TELL ME WHAT YOU USUALLY DO FOR NSD??!!! GOT ANY GREAT TIPS OR MUST DO'S??!!} A winner will be selected May 1st.

* * * GOOD LUCK!!!! * * *
FYI - This weekend I will be posting a YouTube video of my NSD 2010 KIT that I will be giving away on May 1st! No worries, I will be using comments on the YouTube video AND this post comments! ;) Remember, this is only the first of the five giveaways.. the others you can visit my blog of May 1st for a chance to win those!

  3. I will be making up for national scrapbook day by celebrating "playing for pleasure" every day of the year. I have been trying to visit the craft loft everyday, if I do nothing but take out the trash I'm committed to trying to play everyday!!
    Vinnie is taking me on a cruise the first of May so I will be "out of pocket" so to speak, but taking tonz of pictures to play with later! lol
    The Beach is having a huge online virtual crop and I've heard some of the plans and I'm bummed that I'm missing so much that is going on but I'm really appreciative that I get to go on my cruise... :-)
    Enjoy the fun on your blog and on line.

  4. Okay first thanks for letting me know about all the NSD Deals online! I had no idea! I have been scrapping 4 years but have only recently (the past 6 months) been branching out through the internet. Most (which is almost all!) of my friends don't scrap so I have kept mostly to Michael's and Jo-Ann's. I guess for my First "Official" NSD day I will be shopping online and will call my LSS to see what's going on. Thanks for the chance!

  5. What a great giveaway! Well, I am in Brazil, but I am going to follow US NSD! ;) I did not know about special deals on that day. So, now this is my must-do: shop. By the way, May 1st is my birthday! It is going to be fun to play along my scrap friends in US! Hugs

  6. Love it!!! This year I'll be over at Life on the scrap beach and i'm sooo excited. i have never been able to celebrate nsd before because i was either working or busy so i'm stoked this year to participate. I plan on scrapping all weekend. I even took the day before off of work to prepare ;) CANT WAIT :D

  11. What an AWESOME kit giveaway! Hooray for NSD! I think I might spend the day going to the farmer's market in the AM, maybe hit up some local flea markets and check out the deals online. Happy Scrapping!

  12. WOWZERS!! Thanks so much for offering 5 giveaways...hope to make it back on the first but that is the weekend we have friends from Germany visiting so we will see. As for NSD...I have only been doing paper crafting since last July so I haven't been able to celebrate that before. Doesn't look like I will get to do much this year either with company. But I do certainly hope with all I got that I win this mini kit!!! FINGERS CROSSED!!
    Thanks!

  30. How fun! This will be my first NSD and I don't have any specific plans just yet but I'm thinking that it would be a great time to spend a scrappy day with my nieces (5 & 7 years old) who now have the scrappy bug (or maybe it's a scrappy gene :-)). I've been wanting to make explosion boxes with them and I think this will be the perfect occasion to do just that.

    Thanks for sponsoring the blog candy!!

    ReplyDelete

Doing challenges if I can but mostly going to watch and be inspired. thanks for the chance to win!! Yay!

  48. Steff, you really know how to put a kit together! Beautiful! I love NSD!! I can't wait to visit some of my favorite sites on that day to see what the deals may be. Then later I will indulge in some assembly line scrapbooking - cranking out some layouts with some of my stash and then add the pictures. My goals is to get 20 layouts done that day! Love your videos. Hope you will show us something you created on NSD! ~ Di

  50. I usually spend time with my family...everyday is scrapbook day for me since I just enter my paradise room and scrap away!!!!!!!! Seriously I just go shopping online and check out what bargains to be had! Love to celebrate anything related to scrapbooks! CHA etc. Shopping with my sisters for scrap stuffs is the best!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. No shopping for me on NSD! Nope nope and NO. I spent too much money at Expo in March. I have so much and more to last me a life time. Finding old stuff is kinda fun, cause I want to use it. I have sat myself down to have a talk with myself. I have to stop spending so much money on this passion of mine. Ok, seriously, storage is a problem too. But that's what happens when you've been scrapbooking for over 10 years...how exciting, a "withagrin giveaway"! Hugs, Velma

  52. I'll be checking in on the Scrap Beach during the day AND checking for some great deals online too!!! Thanks for this wonderful kit - whoever wins it is a lucky duck, for sure :o)

Such a great stress reliever... except when I need to clean up my space....ugh~ Your give away is absolutely gorgeous. Thanks so much for the opportunity! Happy NSD!

  74. Hiya Steff!
    I've never celebrated NSD before, I just got into the craft ::addiction:: in January when I made a mini for my brother's 40th birthday. So this will be my first NSD and I will mostly likely be shopping for scrappy stuff and working on some projects (aka glimmer misting the bojangles out of anything that can't outrun me) :)
    ha!

  75. Steff - I need to just shop in my own scrapbook room but can't resist all the great sales and I don't want to miss anything. I will pick a few of my scrap buddies and we will check a few of our favorite scrapbook stores. Thank you for including me in your drawing. Hugs, Mary

  77. Hi! Stephanie,
    I am new to making these sweet little mini scrapbook albums, but I did watch one of your videos three weeks ago, and I made one! It was so much fun!

  80. What an amazing kit - breathtaking! Last year was my first 'official' NSD, and I spent it by treating myself to a few new things and working in my craft room. So, not much different than any other day - ha!

    ReplyDelete
  81. lOVE this kit. and NSD is a great day here in Manchester, NH -- the Creating Keepsake Convention is in town. I have been volunteering at CK-Manchester for the past 3 years and will do so again this year. This is the first time it has fallen on NSD. The vendor faire is where I spend all my coins that I have saved for the year, haven't counted this year's yet, but I usually get enough to buy all the things I want. I'd still like to win this kit, though. Thanks, Barbara

    ReplyDelete
  82. Love the kit, I'll spend the day with my baby girl watching the online shops and wishing I had a bit of money (I was fired while on maternity leave) to buy a couple of things I like, love Tim Holtz!. Hope you have a great day and you enjoy your shopping. Hugs. Patt

    ReplyDelete
  83. This kit is beautiful! I love Tim Holtz and Prima, but I've never used Webster's Pages! This is my first year really getting into scrapbooking so I will be blog hopping and shopping for great deals! Thanks for the chance to win this awesome giveaway!

  85. Steff, I hope to be spending May 1st with my family, in Denver...seeing my sister's new house and playing with my sweet 20 mo nephew & 24 mo neice...squeezing in some time at Archivers is naturally A MUST! Life is good :-) Thank you, Bonnie :-)

  88. I found out about NSD last year for the first time. I live way up north and not many people scrapbook around here, or at least don't put the time and effort into it that I 'try' to. I missed your blog and am glad you're back! You're such an inspiration to me, and I'm sure I speak for others too! Thank you for your generosity!! Happy NSD!!

    ReplyDelete
  89. This is my first NSD so I'm looking forward to the experience. All the goodies you've put together will a nice addition to anyone's stash. I'm getting ready to create my first mini album for my DIL for Mother's Day!

  91. I've just currently got into scrapping and ATC making so I will probably spend the day in my jammies with tea in hand working on some art. I have a couple orders placed for goodies so I hope they come in in time. I've never done a mini but I am so captivated by all the pics I see. Especially the one Velma did for you! I might dive in and try one. Definitely if I'm the winner of your contest! I think it's so fun that your doing this! Great way to get more people involved! Thank you! ~Lee Ann

  97. I usally take the day off from work and watch the scrapbooking marathon on QVC! For some reason this year they don't have a full day scheduled as they used to but that may be because the famous Lisa Bearnson of Creating Keepsakes is no longer with them....boo hoo. :)

  101. What a great giveaway! oh please put me in for the drawing. I just celebrated NSD early with my Creative Memories chickies but on May 1st I normally watch QVC and see what all goodies they have. They put together some really good deals with tons of stuff. But I also check out the local sales as well. While I'm watching QVC though I'm scrapbooking cause I get so many ideas and find so much inspiration. Thanks so much for having the giveaway and hopefully I'll get lucky....love your blog by the way.

  102. Now that I'm retired, I have tons of time to scap. I love it! Please enter me in the drawing. I just found you on UTube and will be coming back a lot to see what you are doing. From what I've seen so far, I'm hooked on your blog and Utube. On the first of May I'll be scrapping and also shopping online for some great bargains and ideas. Thanks a chance to win!

  103. Can't wait till May 1st...I will be spending it with one of my two partners in crime..my 12 yr old grand daughter. We are sad, her Aunt, we got both of us into scrapbooking, has to work.

    We have a full day planned...out to breakfast, stop off at few yard sales for goodies, then off to do some shopping...then back at my house to scrap acrylic albums. I think we'll finished off the day with a walk to the beach and journal about our day in new books. Finally dinner and watching Avatar...maybe do a few tags at the same time.

    Would love to win the stash...and share it with her. She loves to do layouts and alter journals.

  105. Steph, What a beautiful kit. Lucky will be the artist to recieve it! This is the first time I really pay attention to NSD. I guess it's because my Virtual friends like yourself are giving us the information we need to understand what it is really about! So for that, I thank you so much Girl! Looking forward to joining you on May 1st!

    Just found your blog as I was checking to see what my local scrapbook stores are doing for May 1st. Thought I was the only one that was hooked so thoroughly. My friends and I are starting our celebration early too by meeting at one of our stores and doing their free make and takes. We will then go to lunch and on to another store for it's Freaky Friday sales. On Sat. I plan to be in line at a third store at 8:30 a.m. to be one of the first 20 to receive a free gift when they open at 10 a.m. Then I will come home and get on the computer. No more QVC as they are no longer celebrating the day - big mistake, but we can still have fun, can't we:)

You are a lovely lady and I enjoy watching all of your You Tube Videos. I missed you while you were gone from You Tube. I plan to shop today to try to find some excellent deals online, etc. Im thinking about making up some mini kits to give them to some girls at work who dont scrap, but are really stressed out right now and maybe would enjoy this wonderful hobby. I would love to introduce someone new into scrapbooking and all it has to offer. Have a great day!!!! Amy
