3 Scrappy Boys NSD blog hop!!

Well, it's here! That celebrated day all year! National Scrapbook Day! In honor of it, 3 Scrappy Boys is having their very first BLOG HOP!

As a new design team's a little about me: My name is Jennie and I'm a stay at home mom to 3 boys {9, 8, and 3} in Southern California. I've been scrapping since 2001 and I'm also a part time photographer ( I LOVE 3 Scrappy Boys and it's the first kit club I stalked or ordered from.

Here's my NSD challenge to you: create a card from scraps and stamps. ONLY. Okay, maybe you can throw a little something else in there, too. The point is that I like to make cards, but I rarely do. I look at all of the gorgeous cards out there and I love them...but my sensibilities won't let me make them with all of the embellishments and pain staking techniques. I want to send beautiful cards but I don't want to spend copious amounts of time or money on them. So, thus the challenge was born. To make a lovely card with scraps and stamps. How did I do?

I used my May Trio Kit and whipped this up. I didn't cut any full sheets of paper and I only added the shipping tag (which, shipping tags are very inexpensive!)

The challenge: make a card like this with only scraps and stamps. Link it up in the comments (you must be a follower to participate) and I will choose one participant to win a sampler pack of twine (from the Twinery!) and shipping tags (a couple sizes and a few different colors)! Then, head back over to the 3 Scrappy Boys blog!

Happy NSD and win that May kit, courtesy of 3 Scrappy Boys!!


  1. I have the same problem with cards, it is hard to me to give away , when they have so much embellies. This is a great challenge. Hope to upload one pretty soon. TFS! Yara

  2. Love this one and really need to do it, too!

  3. Cute card, Jennie! Posted mine on 3SB! :)
