At Scrapbook.com, we want every single day of the year to be filled with crafting and memory-making. Our hearts are filled with joy when it's time to celebrate National Scrapbook Day.
Even though we never need a reason to celebrate the timeless art of scrapbooking, National Scrapbook Day is a fantastic time to take part in some creative challenges and showcase the papercrafting creations that you've all made.
What is (Inter)National Scrapbook Day?
Mark your calendar for the first Saturday in May, because that's the special day that scrapbookers all over the globe look forward to.
National Scrapbook Day (or International Scrapbook Day as we call it around here to include crafters from all over the world) began in 1994 and is now celebrated by crafters everywhere!
Whichever way you say it, or wherever you celebrate it, National Scrapbook Day or NSD is about scrapbookers and the memories they create.

The Scrapbook.com Gallery
Nothing says International Scrapbook Day like our community of scrapbookers and the works of art they create. The Scrapbook.com gallery just reached a big milestone and surpassed the 3,000,000 mark for projects uploaded to our site. Find inspiration in everything you do as well as in these layouts from the gallery made by some of your favorite crafters.
Crafty apples don't fall far from crafty trees. And watching little ones explore their creativity is one of the true joys in life. Capture their creative adventures with crayons, paints, sidewalk chalk, and anything else they use their darling little hands to create with.
Your own journey of creativity is also worthy of documentation in a scrapbook. Make a layout that's full of art and heart to show how you develop skills, make magic happen, and experience with fun new supplies.
Bundles of Joy
Each and every moment with a wee little bundle of joy is memorable. And with your smartphone within arm's reach, capturing those adorable memories is as easy as ever. The hard part is choosing which sweet photos to include on the page (because they're all your favorites). Showcase their silly little quirks, growing adventures, and goofy little smiles in a layout all about baby.
Bicycle Break Time
We're continuing to find new ways to enjoy the ride. Feel the wind against your face and the freedom to keep riding till the sun sets when you get on a shiny new bike! These two layouts featuring fun in the sun with two wheels and handlebars make us want to helmet up and hit the neighborhood streets for some family fun.
The great outdoors are just beyond your front or back door and full of wonderful possibilities for exploration and creativity. Whether you're checking out your local creepy crawly critters or exploring the canvas of the front walkway with sidewalk chalk, these are memories worth scrapbooking.
Find sunshine, rainbows, and smiles in those you love the most - your friends and family. Whether they are near or far right now, documenting those memories can be relaxing, inspiring, and positively heartwarming.
These two bright, beautiful layouts show us just how much the fabulous faces of your favorite people chase all the clouds away.
Home is Where the Heart Is
During a time when many people are staying in their homes, it's only natural to document our stories. These two layouts show hope and beauty in home life. One is a gorgeous rainbow of colors, textures, and images (including an adorable umbrella-holding mini-monster) and the other is a super sweet reminder about the loved ones you share your home with.
A Day in the Life
What does a day in the life look like when we're all staying home? Much of the same old routine like binge-watching, video-gaming, household chores, and lots of staying connected with texting or video calls. Even these simple little everyday activities make a memorable layout with fun photos, stickers, and ephemera.
The Beauty of Blooms
Spring has sprung and you know what that means? Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and bees are buzzing through the air that is fragrant with everything blossoming. These multi-dimensional layouts look like they're taken straight from the garden. Leaves and flower petals in a rainbow of colors remind us of the true beauty found in nature.
When there's a little extra time in the day, you turn to some quality time with your favorite hobbies. Pick up your favorite book for an epic adventure or fairytale romance, escape to a magical world in a video game, or get a little bit crafty with paper, stickers, and adhesive.
Enjoy the little things in life - like your fur family members. Wagging tails, whimsical whiskers, and fabulous feathered friends that are forever by your side are a great subject for a special scrapbook layout. Whether you showcase photos of them snuggled up in their fluffy beds, out for a leashed neighborhood adventure, or just being your bestie, you know you'll have a memorable page.
Reach For The Rainbow
It's no secret that Scrapbook.com is a big fan of the rainbow color palette. We're always looking for the clouds to clear and the rainbows to come out and make our day. These two rainbow-themed layouts are doing just that. Remember to be someone's rainbow, spread kindness, and smile each and every day.
