Getting Ready for International Scrapbook Day and the iNSD 2021 Online Virtual Crop! Step One: Plan Your Projects!

Hello friends! Did you know that International Scrapbook Day 2021 (iNSD) is coming this weekend? If you are like me, then you are probably getting ready for an awesome weekend of scrapbooking, relaxing, and hanging out with your fellow scrappy friends!

To maximize my creative time during iNSD weekend, I like to prepare my scrapbook materials and projects in advance! This way, I can focus on making layouts and having fun.

Now, you may be wondering, “Victoria, what is your process for preparing for iNSD?”

I am so glad that you asked! I will be sharing my process all week long, starting with how to plan your scrapbook projects in preparation for iNSD weekend.

But first…

If you are looking for a fun place to hang, be sure to check out the iNSD 2021 Online Virtual Crop, hosted on the Victoria Marie Mighty Network! This event will start on Friday, April 30th – Sunday, May 2nd!

iNSD Prep Tip #1: Planning Your Projects

The first step of the iNSD prep process is to plan your projects in advance. This step doesn’t have to be super involved. Simply make a list of the projects you want to work on and go from there. TIP: Be realistic about the number of projects you can actually work on during a short period of time. Overloading your project list could cause undo stress and overwhelm.

Next, be sure to note the photos you will need to print for your projects and any potential supplies and materials that you might want to use. Also jot down any design ideas or scrapbook techniques you might want to try (i.e. mixed media, layering), or tools that you want to experiment with during iNSD weekend. This step in the planning process allows you to get your ideas and plans on paper as you prepare for a weekend of scrapbooking.

If you are participating in the iNSD 2021 Online Virtual Crop with the Victoria Marie Designs community, don’t forget to review the crop Challenge Descriptions in advance of the event to plan your projects accordingly. All iNSD 2021 Online Virtual Crop registered participants get instant access to the crop Challenge Descriptions! Woo hoo!
