[inter]National Scrapbook Day – Blog Hop Freebie & Giveaway!

This weekend is [inter] National Scrapbook Day, which means there are lots of fun things going on in the scrapbooking world. To celebrate this awesome day, the Design House Digital designers have created a super cool collaboration kit called Retrospect.

Here is a little peak at this awesome kit:


This kit is packed with digital goodness. And the best part? You can get it for FREE!! Yep, that’s right, FREE! All you have to do is follow along on the DHD blog hop to grab the coupon code, enter it in at Design House Digital and then download it at your convenience. If you are coming to my blog first…then head on over to the beginning of the blog hop.

I have some awesome giveaway’s for y’all, but first I thought I would share a little bit about inspiration. Where do you get your inspiration for your scrapbook layouts? Do you go to sites on the web? Look through your favorite magazines? Here are a few of my favorite websites that I go to for inspiration:

  1. » I love this website. The design of the site is clean and doesn’t distract from the content. What I love most is the trending categories—I could spend all day looking through all of the different design projects that have been posted there.
  2. » This portfolio site is packed full of graphic design work from designers all over the world. On this site you can explore by category tags and even by color. I love looking at the magazine spreads and web layouts here, and they make for a great starting point for scrapbook page layouts.
  3. We Love Typography » A website dedicated to typography—can’t get much better than this! This a great resource for examples of beautiful typography and is my go to website when creating word art or a title for a scrapbook page.
  4. » This blog is full of layout inspiration. Lot’s of tips and tricks, challenges, giveaways and scrapbooking beauty. The focus of the website is on traditional paper scrapbooking, but I love Shimelle’s style and think that it translates well to digital.

Those are just a few of the places that I go to when I am feeling a need for inspiration, or if I just want to look at something pretty. I hope y’all enjoy them as much as I do! now onto the fun stuff…
