I like to think of myself as a pro-level digital scrapbook shopper. I certainly have put in the time and effort to achieve such a rank. lol! In my travels around digi land, I’ve found that a few simple features can turn a good store into a great one! Let me show you some of my favorites:
One of the best things about shopping at Scrapbook Graphics is that the site will show you everything that’s been added since your last visit. I always feel like I’m really seeing everything there is at SBG because of this feature and I know I buy more because of it!
I love the consistent theme at Scrap Orchard. It’s fun that they have done such clever things with the Orchard idea like “fresh fruit”, “perfect pears”, “fruit salad”, “free-bees”, and more!
After 5 Designs is great for doing frequent free with purchase collaboration kits. When I see that all I need to do is add a few more dollars worth of products to my cart to get a jam-packed collab kit, it’s a no brainer for me!
At The Digi Chick, I really appreciate that I can see the full listing of categories and designers in the sidebar without having to open up a drop down menu. I often shop by designer so this makes it a lot easier for me!
I appreciate the “bargain boutique” section at Catscrap when I’m looking for a good deal. I’ve had some great finds there!
It sure is nice to be able to sample a designer’s work before committing to buy. I like that the Sweet Shoppe has freebie samplers from all of their designers so you can try before you buy!
Zig Zag Scraps displays the bestsellers list for each category of products. I love that when I click on “word art” I can see what the most popular designs are. I always find something new this way!
I really appreciate that Oscraps has expandable menus for some of their designers that allows me not only to shop by designer, but by specific product type from that designer. Being able to shop Anna Aspnes’ Art Play Palettes or Kitty Designs templates really makes it so much easier to find what I’m looking for!
I find it so helpful that I can shop by type of element at MScraps. There are many times that I’m in need of something very specific such as stitches, flowers, or staples and I appreciate the categorization of these items when I’m shopping!
The Lily Pad is known for pioneering the “Build Your Own Collab” approach to shopping and I look forward to a new offering of every month. I’m so happy that I can just buy the related collections that appeal to me and I don’t have to buy it all to get those items that I just can’t live without!
These stores provide high quality and appealing designs on a consistent basis – not an easy thing to do! Many stores also offer extra features like galleries, forums, challenges, social media interactivity, newsletters, and more. Take a minute to look around some of your favorite digi stores and get to know more about their features. Let them know when they are doing something that makes shopping easier and more fun for you – I know they will appreciate the feedback. We are very lucky to have so many great places to shop in digi land!
