In honor of NSD May 2, a challenge!

Happy Saturday morning to you!

As you may know, May 2 is NSD, National Scrapbooking Day! In honor of that special crafting day, we at Studio Calico are offering challenges and chances to win all sorts of prizes, including add-ons, gift certificates, and even a 6 month subscription to Studio Calico!

To play along, visit each of the Studio Calico designer's blogs. I have them all listed on my sidebar here. Simply play along with the challenge they are hosting, post your layout in the Studio Calico gallery, and link it to their challenge thread which will be posted on May 2.

Are you ready for my challenge? My challenge is this: Simply hand stitch. Hand stitch somewhere on your layout. You can make a card, make an altered project, or a layout. It doesn't matter. But it must have hand stitching somewhere.

On May 2 I'll make a post here where you can link your layouts. But don't forget to link them from the SC gallery! They need to be posted there for your chance to win. And don't worry about having to use a Studio Calico kit. That's not necessary. You just need to create something new, post it in the gallery, and link it to this blog.

Want to see what you are playing for on this blog? How about some Chiffon!



If you didn't get a chance to pick up this add-on with your Garment District kit in March, this is your opportunity! This was one of my favorite kits ever, so I am very excited to have a chance to share some of it with you.

Get to work! And don't forget to link your layout on May 2. You have a week!

Have a great day! Davinie

    i create this one too... I love stitching on my layout, and I have no stitching-machine (only my mother, but I don't see my mother every day) so I do often hand stitch...
