Welcome to the National Scrapbook Day Virtual Crop: Challenge 1


We are so glad that you have joined us for our National Scrapbook Day Virtual Crop!

If you haven’t already, you will want to join us right on our Facebook Event Page!

If you have not RSVP’d saying that you will join us — you can do so now!

Here are some tips to best prepare for this event:

Gather some photos and scrappy supplies, get comfy clothes (or jammies) on, and crop the afternoon and evening today,  and all day tomorrow- away with us from the comfort of your home.

We will host several challenges throughout the next day and a half from our Facebook Event Page to inspire you (all Australian Eastern Time): 4pm, 8pm, and tomorrow at 10am, 12pm, 2pm, 4pm and 6pm.

All of our challenges for this Virtual Crop will include a sketch, as well as an added technique.  Make sure your project meets all of the requirements to qualify for the individual challenge prizes.  Our objective is to HAVE FUN while creating meaningful scrapbook projects–hopefully sharing a tip or two along the way.
