Happy National Scrapbooking Day, everyone!
As you may know, the first Saturday of May marks a day when scrapbook lovers everywhere celebrate their favorite form of memory keeping. It’s a time to show off your most beloved layouts, glean inspiration from others, share tips and techniques, and have a great time creating even more memories.

Now, get ready for some major scrapbooking inspiration ahead!
Since scrapbooking is all about putting your wonderful memories on display, it only makes sense to start our lineup with Mou Saha's page titled Showcase Your Sweet Memories! Using Brenda Walton's Mini Correspondence die, Mou focuses on adding cute little embellishments to add an extra bit of fun to her layout.
This sweet page comes with a major 'aww' factor! A Love Story by Jan Hobbins beautifully displays the love between her grandparents, as they celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. We think it's the perfect way to illustrate the love-filled and inspiring journey these two have shared together!
Speaking of sharing a journey together, we absolutely adore this heartwarming Grow Together layout by Leica Forrest that showcases the lasting bond between siblings. This look is fun and sweet and can be used to celebrate just about any close relationship that has grown and flourished over the years.
Jamie Pate used designs from her new eclips2 collection called Hello to make this pocket scrapbook page. We love the springtime feel here, but our favorite aspect is how she mixes and matches different photos and designs to set each element apart, while still keeping the overall theme intact.
Just because we're talking about scrapbooking and crafting doesn't mean everything has to be elegant, pretty and sweet. You can have just as much fun with grunge and a little bit of edge, and this Steampunk layout by Michelle Stewart illustrates that perfectly. The weathered, rugged look adds a major cool factor to this page and we just can't get enough of it!
Here's another cool and edgy layout. Anna-Karin's Crackled Frameworks uses some incredibly creative techniques to achieve this 3-dimensional, texture-heavy look. The final piece manages to have both antique and modern touches throughout that really set it apart.
Bringing it back to all things pretty and charming, we love the So Loved layout by Aida Haron. For this project, Aida wanted the look to be sweet and light to celebrate her pet cat, Meme. She achieved it perfectly with the use of lively yellows, pretty pinks and embellishments like buttons and butterflies.
