iNSD blog hop | digital scrapbooking

Well, this is all new and yet old again at the same time. Huh? Here’s what I mean. Years ago, when I had my first public Blog, I used to Blog all. of. the. time. And 95% of my entries including some tie-in to digital scrapbooking, a hobby I am passionate about. I would show-off my newest releases, latest layouts and promote products from fellow designers that I couldn’t get enough of! I would give away freebies and participate in various blog hops. And then I sorta stopped doing all of that (3rd child and all…) I think I’ve shared layouts on this newer public Blog maybe once since starting it 9 months ago. But this weekend, I am going to change that. I am back on the blog train and sharing a FREEBIE with everyone!

So if you don’t know, this weekend is iNSD in the scrapbooking world. iNSD = (inter)National Scrapbooking Day. I’ve been participating in this day for the past 6 or so years. It’s a lot of fun! We run sales, host chats, give away prizes, etc. Lots of fun to be had this weekend each year! (and LOTS of fresh scrap supplies to buy!)

Over at The LilyPad, we have a bunch of things going on. I feel like there’s a lot of info so I will try to keep this as concise and easy to navigate as possible.

– Earlier today we released the May BYOC (Build Your Own Collab) collection. I think I say this about each new month but this one is my latest favorite! I love the bolder colors.

– We had special Saturday releases. I released two new kits: Shutterbug and a collab with my main squeeze Jacque, Twisted Princess.

– BYOC & new products are 20% off. The rest of our stores are 30% off. Retiring items are still active for a few more days and they are 50% off!

– We have an area in our forum dedicated to games this weekend. of course, with games come prizes! Wait until Bingo starts… it’s going to be a lot of fun!

– My team and I will be randomly hosting little contests and giveaways this weekend. Please keep your eyes on this Facebook note to keep updated on where those giveaways are taking place!

Ok! Those are some handy links to get the ball rolling. And since I’ve been meaning to share some recent layouts for, oh, the past few weeks, I think I’ll do that right here. I’m so excited I actually got two layouts done in the past two days. Those are posted first. :)

I’ve also been doing some work on our Disney World vacation album. How excited am I that I can create one layout and print it 3 times – one for each kid’s scrapbook!

You can check out all of my credits in either my LilyPad gallery or my gallery at 2Peas.

And now for that giveaway…..

If you are following the Lilypad’s Blog hop, you are most likely coming here after visiting Amy Martin’s Blog. *waves* Welcome! I technically am the last stop on this train but if you missed anyone in between, feel free to hop back to Crystal’s Blog where this whole party began!

Here’s what I am giving away to you, my scrapbooking friends and customers, as my way of saying thank you for your support for the past 5 years (and if you’re brand new here, welcome!) Enjoy!


UPDATE: links have expired :) Thanks to all who visited this weekend!

These links will remain active until Monday morning (about 9am EST). Please do not directly share. Rather, send your friends over this way. :) If you grab this freebie, I would love, love, love to hear from you! New to digital scrapbooking? Ask me a question. I love helping people get started with this hobby.

Have a super-awesome weekend! Happy scrapping!
