The calm before the storm

All the digiscrappers know what I mean… next weekend is DSD, Digital Scrapbook Day. That means huge sales and lots of new products added to the digi stores. It also means a lot of layouts created by CT members.

There will be FB hops, speed scraps, scavenger hunts. They will be on Pinterest, on Instagram, in forums and on Facebook. It will be an amazing weekend (11/6 to 11/8). Some stores will have promotions the entire week so be sure to check the forums for your favorite digi stores.

Here are a few layouts I created last week:

Digital learning

I mentioned that I attended Spraguefest last weekend. We had two full days of all kinds of crafting, both digital and paper. I had the perfect kit this week to document my trip.

DigiSis Oct 15 – this will not be my last layout of the trip, trust me!

Friends for Life Bundle by Sugary Fancy; Template Set 205 by Cindy Schneider


Speaking of learning, I participated in October’s Scrapaneers. The focus this month is Fear Factor. We were all supposed to go outside of our comfort zone in our layout. I chose minimal, which is NOT my style, and used several filters to achieve this effect.
