Happy iNSD, TLP friends!! Let me start with a confession, I probably spend way to much time on Instagram... but in my defence, that's only because my feed is always so full of scrappy goodness & inspiration! I love seeing both paper and digi layouts shared on Instagram (IG). I love basically studying paper pages and looking at their close-up shots to see the shadows and details that paper scrappers don't even think about, and secretly, I hope paper scrappers scroll past my pages and have no idea they are 100% created in Photoshop! And I also totally love when I recognise digi pages inspiring and being loved on by paper scrappers! iNSD is for both paper and digi peeps and that special breed of scrapbooking unicorn, the hybriders and I'm so looking forward to seeing a ton of IG scrappy eye candy this weekend! Ok, onto the IG challenge... How to play & details: This iNSD you can get up to 4 entries in the random draw for a store gift card for the Instagram Challenge. There is no shortage of challenges and deals this weekend, to participate in this particular challenge, you need to have an instagram account, please have it set to 'public' rather than 'private' for this event so I can make sure you get all the entries you have earned/earnt. To start off, hit 'reply' in this thread so I know you are playing along, and you will come back and edit your reply throughout the event. At the bottom of your post, click the 'edit post' pencil to add to your reply. 'Got it, now how do you get the 4 entries?', I hear you thinking... Well, if you know me, you know I love playing with letters and word games so for the Instagram Challenge this year, you get 1 entry for each of the following: i - is for instagram - get 1 entry for simply following TLP's IG page! TLP's page is here https://www.instagram.com/the_lilypad/ (This one is pretty easy, especially if you already follow TLP. For me to check this though, you must reply in this thread with your IG username and link to your IG page). N - is for new - post an image to your instagram of a new layout you made for any of the TLP iNSD challenges, (it can be for an iNSD slow scrap, a scraplift, any challenge but it must be an INSD challenge layout, not for any of the normal monthly or designer challenges). Make sure you say what challenge you made the layout for and credit the products you used and to get another entry in draw, make sure you use the hashtag #the_lilypad2022insd in the description when you upload to get 1 entry in the draw. S - is for selfie - post a 'selfie' to your instagram (does not have to be a glam portrait or of your face - a photo someone else took of you is also fine) maybe in your scrap space or your view as you are scrapping or playing along with us at TLP this iNSD). Again, use the hashtag #the_lilypad2022insd to get 1 entry in the draw D - is for digi deals! - post an image of some digi goodness you bought here at TLP; or really want and you wish-listed; or a special bargain deal that you saw & think others shouldn't miss out on with a link to the product in the TLP store. (You can post the kit preview, or right-click to save and then share an ad you may have seen for a grab bag deal in a newsletter but don't forget that store link). Again, use the hashtag #the_lilypad2022insd to get 1 entry in the draw. If you are new to Instagram and posting layouts, there is an older blog post here about how. https://the-lilypad.com/3-ways-to-post-your-scrapbook-layouts-to-instagram/ More recently, IG have added the upload button (the plus sign (+) circled below) to their web browser header so you can upload your pages and deals right from your computer, just go to instagram.com to register or log in and get started. It also makes pasting in your username and any info into your reply below easier!
