Gearing Up for National Scrapbooking Day

Gearing Up for National Scrapbooking Day

Are you gearing up for (inter)National Scrapbooking Day? NSD is celebrated the first Saturday in May each year. That means the fun starts this coming weekend!

I've been a digital scrapbooker for a long, long time now and I still get excited to celebrate NSD each year! Here are some of my tips for celebrating in style!

Pssst.... If you're new to digital scrapbooking, you need to know that National Scrapbooking Day means there will be really great new products and sales!

The days ahead of NSD are perfect for making a wishlist of products you want to buy. You can make a wishlist at each store you shop at by using the store wishlist feature. Then it is easy to just add each product to your cart on NSD weekend.

Another really great option is to use Pinterest. Just create a NSD 2016 board and save your favourite products to it. You'll be able to see everything you want from all of your favourite stores so you can check if you're picking too many blue kits and not enough templates, for example. It's nice to have a visual overview of all of the products that you are interested in buying.

Now is the time to make sure that you're following your favourite designers on social media. Designers share their sales information and provide sneak peeks for their new products. Obviously, this can help you to fine tune your wishlist.

Subscribe to newsletters of your favourite designers to make sure you don't miss an update. I've seen designers provide early access to the sales (with coupon codes) to their newsletter subscribers, as well as coupons for additional savings. Some designers offer freebies or free-with-purchase products through their newsletters as well.

Once NSD weekend arrives, it is time to hit the sales! The NSD sales are always amazing!

Load up your cart(s), check your budget and then hit buy!

But fair warning - download times on NSD weekend can sometimes be a bit slow because there are just so very many excited digi scrappers trying to get their goodies. If you're patient, wait to download until off-hours, like early in the morning or very late at night. Or, if you're very, very patient, wait until early next week.

Lots of stores and designers host fun games and challenges. Some are forum participation games and some get you scrapping! Either way, enjoy taking part in the community and sharing your love of this hobby with other memory keepers.

I wish you all a happy (inter)National Scrapbooking Day!
