It's Our Day

Happy Scrapbooking Day!!!  What are you scrapbooking enthusiasts going to create on our special day?

This event makes me miss my planet more :(  

I haven't done a layout for more than a week.  I purposely left some blank pages on my sister's scrapbook, so I can make some pages here in Manila.  I have been here for two weeks already but I haven't done any major craft shopping.  I'm looking forward to our Divisoria trip so I can buy craft materials for a good price.  It is going to be a challenge making a scrapbook page here with limited supplies, especially when I'm used to having everything I need in my craft room.  I did look around SM Megamall today because they are having a 3-day sale.  I first saw the Simplejoys shop.  They sell beading and scrapbooking supplies.  And because it's a mall-wide sale event, a lot of their items are on sale.  A variety of scrapbooking embellishments/materials are P50 (about $1.25).

None of them I've ever seen in the states, and it seems to me that the quality can match those being sold in the US.  I did try to stop myself from buying so much, because there are still a lot of shops to explore.  I just decided to buy one ribbon set because I like the color combination.  Six 1 yard ribbon strips for that price is really not that bad.I saw another craft store, but I wasn't impressed with their items.  Then I just had to go to Papemelrotti again.  I saw these notebooks perfect for sketching scrapbook layouts.  It's only P14.40 after the 20% discount (originally P18).  That's only about $0.59. 

These notebooks can be altered too!  I bought quite a bunch of these :)This week, check out your favorite scrapbook stores (online too!) and they might be having special deals for National Scrapbooking day.  I'm kinda sad because I'm not in the US for this.  But in a way I'm glad because I'm actually saving money.  QVC is celebrating this event and they have a lot of cool scrapbooking stuff.  Check them out here, here, and here.  They will be having two more scrapbooking shows consecutively at 5 pm and 6 pm Eastern Time.

For you digital scrapbookers, Scrapbook Elements has close-out specials which you can browse through here.  Another favorite of mine, Designer Digitals is having their quarterly sale where everything is 30% off using the coupon code 148694.  This offer expires on May 6th, Tuesday at 7 am ET.  They will also have an all day chat event tomorrow, May 3rd, Saturday where they'll be giving away freebies and other goodies every hour.  Also on Sundays and Mondays, they have 2 items for only $0.25.  If you're reading this on a Sunday or Monday, click here now for that really good deal.

By the way, check out Scrap N' Art Scrapbooking and Papercrafting Ezine's premiere issue by clicking right here.  I have seen it and it's really cool :)  Try submitting some of your work for their September/October issue and take a shot on being published.  For more information, click here.
