Ok, I said that I wouldn't be back until July, and really should be packing, looking for new places to live in Kansas City, cleaning, etc. but I couldn't leave my readers on the best scrapbooking weekend of the year!  So after this post, I really am moving across the country. I will be back in July.  If you subscribe to my posts by entering your email address in the box on the right hand sidebar, you will know exactly when I return and get updated blog posts as emails. That said, on to the fun...

There is so much going on during iNSD among the different stores that I've divided the information up
into categories.  I'm not listing everything because that would be crazy, only things that I think are a good download or buy.  Also, since I am not part of any of these stores, or sponsored in any way, this will be one of the only places you will find a synthesized list of everything.


  • Scrap Orchard: They are having a $1 Farmer's Market sale.  That is a great deal.  New items are added each day and old ones are taken away.  I will be buying some things here.
  • the Lilypad: 30% off plus a free with minimum purchase kit
  • ZigZag Scraps: 50% off almost everything and 40% off new products plus a free with minimum purchase kit
  • SugarHill co: 40-50% off individual designer shops
  • Oscraps: 20-50% off plus free with purchase kit
  • Brittish Designs: 40% off
  • Mscraps: 30-50% off
  • Scrapmatters: 40% off and free with purchase
  • Digital Design Essentials: 40% off
  • Sweet Shoppe Designs starts their sales on Saturdays.  They look like they have some cute kits coming up and probably a good sale (click HERE for previews). Check them out tomorrow.

blog trains/facebook trains.

Click on the images below to find the blog train where you will get FREE KITS!!!!  I know it's a pain to go through each one, but some of my favorite kits are from blog trains.  Hint: Don't download every part, only the parts you like.
this isn't the blog hop kit, but it will coordinate with this. (this is scrapmatters free with purchase kit)
These shops have announced blog hops, but they haven't started yet.  Check them out tomorrow.

I never really have the time or interest to play the games that stores offer, but some of you may.  They always give out freebies for participating in the games.
The Lilypad has games and chats with prizes. Their games are easier and I will probably do some.  See details HERE.

Scrap Orchard has several games set up at different times.  Click HERE to see what freebies will be offered when you play the games (it looks like a mega kit by the end).

Scrapmatters has speed scraps too.  Click HERE.

please read.

Scrap Orchard just announced that they will be selling photo books.  Wahoo...except when I clicked on the link, I immediately thought that they were printing them through Viovio, a company that I have used to print all of my books.  It is the exact same formatting and everything.  Look at viovio.com to compare. However, Scrap Orchard states that their partnership is through Photobooks.pro, which suspiciously looks a lot like Viovio except for one thing. The 12x12 perfect bound softcover book on Scrap Orchard is $15.99+$1.95 a page whereas the 12x12 perfect bound softcover book on viovio.com is $7.99+$0.99 a page.  THAT IS A BIG DIFFERENCE FOR THE SAME PRODUCT.  Don't be tricked. I love Viovio and highly recommend it.  It is the cheapest option out there with high quality printing.  Go through their website, not Scrap Orchard.

Yay! Thank you thank you! I'm going to be a downloading maniac today.
