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:
