Happy Digital Scrapbooking Day weekend everyone! Anyone who’s been around digi land for awhile knows that as much fun as these big scrapbooking holidays can be, they can also be a bit crazy and overwhelming!
I shared my my guide for surviving scrapbooking events in this National Scrapbooking Day post of yore so I thought it’d be fun to ask Team Awesome to share their top tips with you as well. Here’s what they had to say…
From Jen: PATIENCE is the key to surviving DSD. There are awesome sales and events going on, and you cannot do everything. At the beginning of the weekend, make a list of sales you want to check out and events you want to participate in, and work from there. Don’t buy anything immediately- make a list and come back after you look at all the sales to make sure you truly want everything and not just because it’s on sale. Most of all- HAVE FUN!
From Natalie: Play the games you really want to win. There are so many games all around the sites that you will become totally overwhelmed and frustrated if you try to play them all.
From Heather: It’s very easy to get overwhelmed. Lots of kits that you like but have not decided to purchase throughout the year all become possibilities to take home with you during a storewide sale. Try to purchase kits that you have already on your wishlist, kits that you can still remember off the top of your head even if it debuted months ago, kits that you have a solid idea or two on how you could use them with photos that you have, and of course any new items that your favorite designers have created for the occasion that jump out at you. This is also a great time to be a little adventurous and try out a kit from a new to you designer. Who knows? A kit purchase during this weekend could lead you to a new favorite place to shop. Breathe and pace yourself. Start with your absolute must have purchases first and work your way along. Your budget may tell you that you can’t have everything this November and the items on the bottom of your list may need to wait for later. And make some time to scrap! No point in getting all of the fun new items for our stashes if we don’t use them!
From Sherly: Try to download goodies you buy AFTER the DSD weekend to avoid slow traffic!
