Happy NSD – I guess we should call it iNSD because CM has The First Annual Creative Memories Worldwide Virtual Crop happening right now!! CM, and thousands of scrapbookers, are sharing ideas and inspiration from around the world in celebration of the iconic event that Creative Memories is famous for inventing in the mid '90's - National Scrapbook Day!
Pop in at your leisure to this super fun Facebook event from your favorite scrapping spot for just an hour, or stay the whole day! CM is providing page sketches, inspiration and tips and PRIZES!! Don’t worry – there is plenty of support to encourage you to complete pages, card projects, or even just organize your photos! Whatever's on your creative "to do" list is fair game. It's always more fun knowing there's a whole great big group of folks being creative with you, even if they're creating on their own turf, yes? :)
I hope to see you pop on for however long you can stay and also that you will share pictures of your finished pages and projects to inspire other crop attendees!
The ideas will stay in this event, too – so be sure to “join” the event so you can see them after the Virtual Crop is over. Do this by clicking on the event link or searching FB by using hashtags. The hashtag for this event is #cmworldwidevirtualcrop be sure to include it when posting ideas. You can search for ideas from past virtual crops, too, by searching Facebook for #CMVirtualCrop1, #CMVirtualCrop2 and #CMVirtualCrop3.
