Default iNSD!

I don't know about anyone else, but until I read the newsletter I totally forgot about iNSD with all that's going on in the world right now. I'm so excited to have that to look forward to next weekend! For the last few weeks I've spent days helping my special needs son with all his schoolwork and evenings and weekends putting in extra hours for my job, so I haven't been scrapping much. But today is the last day that I'll be busy with parent/teacher conferences and all the extra hours that entails, so I'll finally be able to scrap more starting tomorrow. I hope there's lot of scrapping inspiration, whether challenges or beautiful layouts being posted. I'm also hoping to pick up some new releases. I want to support our designers and get some new things that will help motivate me to scrap! How about everyone else--are you looking forward to iNSD? What are you most looking forward to about it?

I am always looking forward to iNSD/DSD !! It is my favorite weekend to look around for great deals and to add to my scrap-collection (allthough my husband would say it's big enough already !! LOL). And who doesn't love a good sale ?!?!

I haven't scrapped since 2014............ I had completely forgotten when INSD/DSD was. I can't wait to see what the designers have next week and add some new stuff to my (kit) collection.

I'm excited to hopefully shop (and save some money). Maybe play some games, enter giveaways. Probably not any scrapping...I'll wait until the week after to play with my new goodies!

Shopping! And I looked forward to the community things. I've missed this most years with soccer, band stuff, dance, etc. I get the entire day to enjoy iNSD this year, so that will be nice.


I'm glad you have something to look forward to, Rachel. Your plate sounds so full right now.

I'm looking forward to the sale and the games. I've been getting some scrapping done during this quarantine time. I'm trying to finish a couple of Disney albums and some other vacation albums.

I think this will be the first time I don’t shop. With the exchange rate at 50% it’s just too expensive. Have fun shopping next week and maybe next year the dollar will have improved so I can get back to shopping.

I am looking forward to it too! Usually I do a little shopping and take advantage of sales, but don't have time to actually scrap during the weekend because we are always at sports stuff - but since there aren't any at the moment, I'm hoping to be able to join in some of the fun too!

Yes! I was hoping iNSD would still be happening. So thankful for something "normal" and to look forward to! I'm excited about the games, new releases, sale and lots of scrappy fun!

I forgot when it was too. I should remember as I spent so many years ignoring everything to create lots of new products for the occasion. In recent years, the end of April and beginning of May are so busy that I can't remember anything that isn't on a list. This year... well, this year is just weird.

I always forget when insd is. Sadly this year I probably won't buy much as the exchange rate is horrible these days. I might have to just pick one or two must haves and wait for better days.

I'm looking forward to whatever hubbub there is!
I haven't been around during iNSD so I don't know WHAT to expect but I'm sure it will be fun!

It has been forever since I've been here and just as long since I've scrapped. But I got a new computer and downloaded a trial of PSE and it's like riding a bike! Gonna pull out an EHD and fire up some old kits and photos today. I'm excited to check out some new goodies on iNSD!

I haven't actually seen an iNSD in action so I'm excited to see what happens. I'm really hoping there might be some additional challenges but if not then at least there will be a new passport to keep me busy. I'm like some others that are suffering due to the exchange rates but I've been limiting myself lately so I'm sure I will buy a few goodies... all in the name of family memories of course!

I'm in the same boat - today Paypal's rate is 36% ... but I'll still probably buy a few things (even though I haven't used what I bought last iNSD lol)

I look forward to iNSD!!! I buy way more than I can possibly use. But, I want to support all the great designers out there. I know some have spouses that might have reduced hours right now, or be furloughed due to the pandemic. This is a small way I can support what I consider to be an art community.

I have a question about exchange rates.


If someone in the US gifts someone outside the US a $20 gift certificate at SSD, does the person outside the US get to spend $20 or does the exchange rate apply here also?

Yikes! I didnt realize it was that bad... as soon as borders open, we'll have to come up to get new skates for my son (always better for us to buy them there in BC!)

I'm sorry to hear that so many of our scrappers won't be able to shop much because of the exchange rate! Hopefully there will be games or challenges where you can win products.

I'm sure the person would get the full $20 USD to use Lynn, since the store's cart charges in USD, I've never seen any option to pay in another currency.

I too am sad about the crappy exchange rates, but I am looking on the bright side - if there is a big sale, then I can still buy a bunch of things that I wouldn't have bought otherwise at full price because of the exchange rate. So ... cha-ching! Let me loose on Friday night!

My son is miserable. He takes twice the daily adult antihistamine dose and still walks around with a box of tissues. Sigh. Poor kid!

I can't wait for it, I've got a little bit of money I can spend so I'm going to pick up some amazing things and scrap. I've barely sat at the laptop since I bought Animal Crossing (I know!) so I'm going to spend the next few days and this weekend scrapping, if I remember how

I am excited for this years. Normally it's a double shift weekend for me, but with all that is going on in the world, I actually have off rather than work non-stop. So I can actually participate some for the first time in I don't even know how long!

When I've sent money to a friend of mine, it converts to her price. If she turned around and spent it in a US based store, she'd get the US equivalent of that money you just sent them.

But every day the exchange rate changes. So if you sent it last week and they spend it this week or next, the exchange rate might be better or worse than that what you gifted if you want them to turn around and spend it to get the best bet would be to send it within the hour they want to spend the money.

I have been saving up to shop the sale!
I'd like to participate in some easy games...not sure I'll do any challenges if there are some because I'm hyper-focused on finishing my 2019 Project Life pages.....only 22 weeks to go, LOL! If a challenge doesn't easily fit in with that, I'm not straying from my mission!

Hi, Lynn, I'm pretty sure that it will be US$20 straight so the person receiving the gift will be able to spend US$20, I think it's more when we have to pay by paypal/credit card that we get hit super hard by the exchange.

We are currently at about AUS $$0.63 to the US$$... it sucks, big time. We have to pay almost 40% more in AUS$$....but sometimes it's just worth it, lol!!

Lol! I haven't even been brave enough to look through my wishlist yet! But who am I kidding--plenty of what I get will be new releases. Maybe I'm better off waiting until they're released and then filling in from my wish list. If I fill a cart now I'm just going to struggle to put some back when the new releases come out.
