DigiShopTalk.com

You asked for it, you got it. In light of the ever-tiring battle of scrappers vs. 2peas and the ability to freely discuss digital products that aren't sold at 2peas, We have decided to create a new website to solve the problem. The website is DigiShopTalk.com (link to messageboards below). This isn't a replacement of 2peas or to rival 2peas. It's just that the digital-scrapping community thrives on and needs to have a place where they can freely discuss products and 2peas has made it clear that they do not want their messageboard to be it. That is perfectly acceptable! Understandable even! But that doesn't negate the fact that the community still needs the outlet.

At DST, our hope is to foster an environment where we can come together as digital scrappers and share our lives, both scrap and non-scrap related.

You are welcome to rave about your favorite designer, products or store.

If you are a designer, you are welcome to mention your own products, promote your own sales or special new releases. You may offer coupons if you so desire.

Linking IS permitted. Please do share with us all of the wonderful finds that you're discovering out there in the digi-community.

The digital scrapping community is one that thrives on quality products and word-of-mouth advertising. Digital scrappers LOVE to shop, don't we? Both the designer and the scrapper benefit greatly from this type of forum where we can share freely what the best products, designers and trends are.

Please also feel free to share any challenges, publication calls, crops or chats that may be hosted at other sites. Provide a direct link so that we may all easily find where the fabulous digital opportunities are!

All we ask is that you treat each other in a respectful manner.

You are welcome to talk about anything on the site as long as you are respectful about it. We want this to be a fun place to hang out where we can share about our lives and what we love and just generally enjoy being with others who share our passion for digital-scrapping.

We will also be introducing a featured designer spot every month. This will be a designer spotlight that will allow us to get to know a designer better within that month. We will have links to her store and blog as well as an exclusive kit available just to our Paid Subscribers.

To view the site and use the board, there is no fee.
To participate in the chats (where there will be freebies) and to have access to ALL 12 exclusive kits for the year, there is a $20 annual Paid Subscriber fee. That's 12 exclusive kits for $20. I don't think you have to be an algebra whiz to see that's a phenomenal deal. ; )

At this time, we have opened the messageboard and you are free to jump in and participate. It is still BRAND NEW and therefore is not yet customized at all. We will be adding a hot-button so that you can have a link to your gallery (any gallery that you choose!). You are welcome to include blinkies and links in your signature.

We will be incorporating all of the other fun features very soon so please be patient with us as we are still in the beginning stages. But for now, join in and have fun speaking FREELY about what you love!

Well, I'm not a designer, but I'll be there! So tired of all the "drama" at 2Ps. I was hoping someone with more tech savvy than I would do this. If there is anything I can do to help out, let me know. You can peamail me through 2Ps. I'm "blessedwoman" there.

OK, I just had to come back and see when I posted my last comment because I have been at DST ever since! Such a wonderful idea. Sometimes the DSB community feels a bit like High School so I am so excited to see something come up that is so open for everyone. Let me know if you need any help!

OK, time for bed!

uzoHi Shannon
Sorry to leave a comment here about this but I was a bit lost. I registered on DigiShopTalk last night but never received the confirmation email. I used the username Scrapdragon and the email scrapdragon@scrapdragondesigns.co.uk
This is working as I sent myself a test email and received it fine. I hope you can help me with it, I can't log in. Thanks so much
