National Scrapbook Month (NSM)

The first Saturday in May is National Scrapbooking Day for those of us in the paper crafting hobby or business this is a big day, we celebrate all things paper but really it is so much more that paper. For me and many I know scrapbooking is way more than just paper. Scrapbooking for some is a creative outlet, it is a chance to go back and reflect on past memories while scrapbooking them...desperate to get caught up, for others it is a chance to save those precious family moments that would be long for gotten and for others it is a a fun hobby or business, or all of the above. Whatever your reasons are for scrapbooking and I am sure there is more than one....it is a time to reflect and cherish the memories we are preserving for future generations!

You have all month to celebrate with us!  We want to see your scrapbooking/memory keeping in whatever form you love.

And now on to some samples that we hope will inspire you from our design team:

We would love to see what you have for this challenge, show us your favourite layouts featuring at least one Close to My Heart product. This challenge is open all month, so you have until May 31 to upload your project. We can't wait to see your projects!

Happy Times

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge! 

Since it is just after the Easter weekend, everyone should be HAPPY, right? For many of us, Easter involved chocolate in some form, and that makes almost everyone happy :) 
What a perfect reason to have a HAPPY TIMES challenge! 

Bring on the good times - and this can be happy moments in the form of a scrapbook layout, a card, or perhaps using the So Much Happy paper collection from Close To My Heart. There are so many ways to show us your happy times, so let's get rolling. 

Here is how the design team chose to demonstrate their Happy Times. 

Come and share your HAPPY TIMES with us here at Heart 2 Heart! 
Be sure to use at least some Close To My Heart products in your project. 
You have until the end of April to link up - we can't wait to see what you create!
