Happy National Scrapbooking Day everyone! Everyone ready for one of the biggest scrapbooking (and shopping!) days of the year? I know I am!
Since this isn’t my first time navigating the craziness that is National Scrapbooking Day, here are my top tips for how to survive the scrapping and shopping craziness:
1. Stick to a Budget
Yes, that’s right, I used the dreaded B-word.
Now I know what you’re thinking. Having a budget will totally cramp your NSD shopping style! But here are my reasons for recommending a budget:
You’ll shop smarter when you realize buying that 40% kit at one shop would mean you’d have to forgo another kit somewhere else. When you’re facing down deeply discounted products, this becomes super important. Do you really want to end up buying a bunch of products you don’t really love just because they’re a deal? Believe me, I have been there and I don’t recommend it, haha.
Having a budget also means you’ll avoiding waking up with that post-NSD oh my god, did I really spend that much? panic attack from viewing your paypal account on Monday morning. Monday’s are hard enough, let’s try to not add to the stress.
2. Keep A List of Must-do Events
Have a must-do chat/game/sale you just don’t want to miss? Make a list of any favorite events, times and deadlines so you’ll be sure not to forget anything in all the excitement. Nothing worse than realizing at 12am Monday morning that you just missed one of your must-do sales.
3. Have Fun
Yes, NSD can be one of the craziest, most stressful scrapbooking days of the year. Sale deadlines, slow servers and discounts galore is enough to make any digital scrapbooker’s head spin. But at the end of the day, it’s just scrapbooking. If you’re not having fun, what’s the point?
And now for the news I’m sure you all really want to know about…
It’s NSD at NettioDesigns!
In honor of National Scrapbooking Day this weekend, I’m releasing not one but TWO awesome new template packs. That’s a grand total of six template-y goodies!
I’m not going to lie, these might just be some of my favorite templates I’ve done yet. I kind of want to use them myself. Is that totally weird? I’m thinking maybe, haha.
Ok, Are you ready to see them?
First up, in keeping with the FAVE-O-RITES theme from last release, I’ve got a BRAND-NEW set of FAVE-O-RITES templates based on my February Faves layouts…
Along with two February Faves-inspired templates, this template Super Pack also includes a bonus Top 10 Faves layout template. Perfect for documenting Top Ten lists, Monthly Faves or any other bite-sized bits of journaling you can think of.
The name of my next pack of templates will probably come as no surprise to anyone who has been following my scrapbooking for awhile, haha.
Based on my absolute LOVE of pattern paper, I introduce the first in a series of paper-centric layouts perfect for all my fellow paper lovin’ digital scrapbookers:
Paper strips, paper blocks, awesome clustering and bold titles, this awesome three-pack of templates has it all! Perfect for documenting any and all of your life moments, events and adventures.
It’s Time to Save
And of course what would NSD be without a SALE!
That’s right, everything in the NettioDesigns Shoppe is 20% off through Sunday night!
Just use coupon code:
to save 20% off everything in the NettioDesigns Shoppe.
Just make sure you are 100% ready to checkout before you enter the code in your cart. If you try attempt to make changes to your cart after the coupon code has been entered, your cart will be emptied. I know, sad, haha.
This will likely be the last time the entire shoppe is on sale for awhile so if there’s something you’ve had your eye on, I highly suggest you take the plunge. I promise it’ll be worth it, haha.
