Best thing since sliced bread

So my foray into digital scrapbooking, a.k.a. digi-scrappin', is going well. I'm trying to do most of the NSD challenges at Stuff to Scrap and already did 2 layouts today! I'll be posting those in a bit, but I wanted to post about the best thing I've discovered - Templates!

These are awesome for getting stuff done & not having to come up with your own design. Some people give them away for free and some are available for purchase. Like the saying goes, "you get what you pay for". Now don't get me wrong, the free ones are great and sometimes they are even superb, but for consistent quality purchased ones are the way to go. Don't worry, they are affordable.

I've just found out about a new set of templates designed by Nibbles Skribbles (MandaK). Her templates are some of the best out there. Check it out:

Psst: I wanted to let you in on a little secret - there is a coupon included with the download for this set and rumor has it that Manda is going to be having a sale in her store for National Scrapbook Day. Combine the coupon with the sale and you will be able to get anything and everything in her store for half price, but only for a limited time - you won't want to miss this. So hurry over and pick up Template Set 5!


You ask, "What is NSD?"

Only one of the best days of the year...


There are so many things planned that I'm having a hard time deciding on what which virtual party to attend. Everywhere I look, there are blog posts and forum posts about what everyone is doing to celebrate!

I recently joined a digital scrapbooking focused forum at Stuff to Scrap. They are having a full day of events on the actual National Scrapbook Day, May 2nd. But the really great thing is that they also have stuff planned for the week leading up to it in the form of Challenges with wonderful prizes.

All times are Mountain Time Zone.

Gonna give Digital a Go

I've decided to get my feet wet in the digital scrapbooking world! I've resisted for so long mainly because I thought any time I spent doing a digital layout could be better spent using all of the products I've accumulated & spent money on for traditional scrapbooking. It seemed to me almost like I would be betraying my stash!

Well, I've come to the conclusion that both ways can co-exist peacefully in my craft repertoire. So I've been spending my days & nights downloading all the free digital kits I can get my hands on. And let me tell you, there's a lot of stuff out there to be had for free!
