DSD Aftermath

Whew, I am still reeling from all the fun craziness of iDSD! (That's international Digital Scrapbooking Day, or Digital Shopping Day, as some husbands call it LOL!) How about you? Did you participate in any chats, games, or activities? Almost every store in digiland offered amazing sales, fun-filled chats, generous freebies, and creative challenges to get us scrapping. Some stores even crashed from all the shopping frenzy!
So today I'm working on unzipping and organizing all my downloads, and thought it would be the perfect time to share some of my purchases (linked of course for your shopping pleasure :)), and maybe a layout or two. Then once I have time to scrap with the new stuff, I'll come back to share those layouts, too.

First up - The Lilypad! Due to technical difficulties, they extended their sale through today, so don't miss out! Here's a few of my fave kits that I either won or bought this weekend:
I just adore glitter. L.O.V.E. it. Especially this kind of stampy/splattery stuff I can layer on a background. Since I mostly scrap my boys, I can't have TOO much obvious glitter, so I like to use it to add a little pep to my backgrounds!

I actually bought Gina's Simple Journalers Pack #2 as well. I've been taking pictures with my Droid a lot lately, using the Retro Cam app, which creates these nifty Instagram-like square pictures. I can't wait to use these journalers to showcase those phone pics, along with all the cute stuff my kids say and do!

I've had my eye on this one since it came out. I love that it's not too cutesy, so could be used for layouts about conversations between Josh and I, as well as for funny things the kids say.

I actually got quite a bit more at The Lilypad, but since I don't want this post to get too long, I'm going to move on - I'll definitely share more of my purchases with layouts later this week!

Another kit that's been hanging out on my wishlist - I was lucky enough to snag a coupon from the ultra-generous K Studio to get this kit for free! I love the color palette! And how cute is that sheep?!

I was excited to win a coupon from Emeto Designs, because she creates these beautiful fantasy-style kits that I've always admired, but been afraid to actually buy and experiment with! I think this gorgeous Christmas kit will be fun to play with this year, hopefully my kids will cooperate for pictures!

I was recently accepted to the Catscrap creative team (WOOT! More about that exciting news in another post :)), and had the chance to play with this adorable new grab bag by Catscrap guest Jazzmin Designs. It's only $3 too! Grab it fast!!! Also, just FYI, Catscrap is giving away daily freebies on their Facebook page for DSD - don't miss the last few! Here's the page I made with the grab bag:

During my October guest CT spot at The Lilypad, I had the incredible privilege of playing with SO MANY amazing goodies (the BYOC stuff alone warrants its own post!). One of the last things I snagged was Micheline Martin's new kit The It Chick.

And here's a layout with it, featuring my beautiful little sister Chrissy and her adorable daughter:

One final purchase - I'm getting ready for holiday scrapping, and I liked the non-traditional color palette for this Thanksgiving/gratitude-themed kit by Sugary Fancy.

To see more of my DSD purchases, check out my Facebook page! And I'll be back soon to show off some of my favorite freebies from the weekend, talk about the challenges I participated in, and show off some more layouts!
In the meantime, I would LOVE to see your favorite goodies! What did you buy off your wishlist? Or did you snag some of the crazy limited-time deals and steals? Enable us!
