I went to buy something at the digital store OSD One Story Down the other night when the store wouldn’t open! At the time I thought they were just updating. Then a few days later I went to a blog that sells at ODS where she announced that OSD went down and their back up didn’t work either. So they are down until they completely rebuild their site. Wow! Just as I was getting started with the OSD The Loft challenge. So The Loft Journal Challenges are on hold until further notice.
And Divine Digital is really closing down this next week on the 28th of February. A real big bummer! On the plus side maybe I won’t download as much digital content from here on out?
I am working diligently on finding a new home/forum to spend time in. So far this is the list I am working from.
My Scrapbook Art I love this place too. They have a great newsletter that exposes me to new designers. As well they also have a featured designer and a Art Scocial Collab that they offer each month for a really good price. This is one place I plan to continue to frequent but need to look into the forum.
Sweet Shoppe Designs I love this place but haven’t visited the forum here. I do love the designers here though.
Deviant Scrap This place is awesome if you are looking to Art Journal, I haven’t visited the forum here yet but plan to.
One Story Down This link isn’t working as of now but should work again soon. (I hope) I was really liking the company “Creative Thinking” I haven’t found that they are selling anywhere else yet.
Scrapflower This store closed in October or November of last year only to re-open the beginning of February. Afraid to start where it could close again?
Scrap Orchard I haven’t spent much time here to see all the designers. They do have a daily freebie that they send out via the newsletter.
The Lillypad I have a designer or two I like here but not shopped here much.
The Daily Digi This is one of my homes that I plan to keep. I love this place and pay $7.00 a month to get new designs each month.
Gotta Pixel This has some good designers but not been to the forum.
Shabby Shoppe I have been here for the free downloads, they are beautiful. But I will be looking to see what designers are here and if I like them.
Designer Digitals I have been here but find it a bit expensive.
Studio et Designs @ Scrapbookgraphics – Studio Girls I am loving the art journal types of designers they have there. Like Captivated Visions, Tangie Baxter, Dawn Inskip and Viva Artistry. There are so many wonderful designers there I have only listed a few that I have gotten familiar with recently.
Digital Scrapbook Places This was the very first place I went when I got my Bamboo Pen. They are responsible for all of my hard drives of digital artwork. They have great tutorials and great desingers. I just feel they are a little expensive too.
Peppermint Creative They have the coolest list of Scrapbook Phrases available. This is unique to scrapbooking stores I have seen.
Weeds and Wildflowers Not shopped here.
Oscraps Has great designers here, and they have a monthly freebie.
Mscraps This site also has great designers and a montly freebie as well.
Jessica Sprague This site has great artists, classes to join. I haven’t gone to the forum yet.
Digital Scrapbooking Studio this site has a bunch of good designers, the forum is exciting, and they have a designer contest every year.
Digi Style Designs This place has a few of my Divine digital designers that are moving.
Southern Comfort Scraps This place has a few of my Divine digital designers that are moving.
Wilma4Ever This place has a few of my Divine digital designers that are moving.
Ivy Scraps This place has a few of my Divine digital designers that are moving.
There are so many more stores out there with really good qualities. Even these I have listed have great qualities about them that I haven’t listed. I made this list so I could get to them quickly to further my research. Perhaps you might take a look at them too if you are looking for a new place to call home. Let me know if there are any links that need fixed.
