Instead, Simple Scrapper will offer you a few secret tips for finding great new products without the endless maze of browsing.
4 easy tips for locating great products
1. Go where the designers are
DigiShopTalk is the hub of the digital scrapbooking community. This is where designers go to promote their products and scrappers learn from the best. You may have posted in the forum or uploaded a layout, but have you browsed the Product Gallery? You can sort by date or designer and even run a search. This might become one of your favorite spots to window shop.
2. Try social shopping
Ever curious what other scrappers are buying? Kaboodle.com will tell you. A simple search for “digiscrap” reveals hundreds of wishlists and “got it” lists from Kaboodle’s members. It’s a completely free to start your own list and browse what others are oogling.
3. Flip over the eye candy
Have you flagged or favorites lots of layouts for future inspiration? Don’t forget that your scrapspiration is not only a great source for creativity, but also your lead to fun new products. So read that fine print and get clicking to the designer’s shop.
4. Let the shop come to you
Most digiscrap suppliers have blogs and many also have newsletters. Subscribe, subscribe, subscribe! Not only can you be the first to know about sales and freebies, but you’ll be notified of great new products. Let the designers come to your inbox or reader and save precious minutes for extra scrapping.
