I finally did my first LO today (YAY!!!) and I posted a photo of it. Let me know what you guys think please... I get inspiration in my dreams: I think about this stuff so much I dream about it! LOL

I am sort of new to scrapbooking and I need expert advise on a scrapbooker's necessity. I used a cricut recently and loved it, but it was limited to only the cartridges that you had. I have been reading about the silhoette and it seems to have more options and stuff than the cricut. Can someone here give me some feed back as to what they liked and disliked about each one of them.
Thanks

I just joined this site and am a bit overwhelmed trying to figure out where to start...LOL.

I am new to the hobby and am really not sure what I am doing but hope to learn lots here.

Kind of intimidating being the "new kid on the block"

It is crazy to look back at my first albums and see how scary my pages are, but I wouldn't redo them at all, because it is good to see your progress as you get better - and you WILL get better. Keep going and don't worry about what you did when you first began.

Start by getting the basic supplies. I would suggest buying at Walmart. They have great products to get you started and they are less expensive. Get a paper trimmer- this is your most expensive, Try a mixed media pack by Best Occasions at Walmart, this includes your paper, some stickers, frames, tags and alphabets, phrases. ALso get the herma adhesive- it is great! Get an archival black pen by ZIG. And lastley some fun stickers, a pack of buttons, some ribbon and an album!

Hope this helps, and let me know if you have any more questions!

Melissa

I'm new here as well. Accidentally but happily stumbled across this site yesterday!

I was excited to see that there's sooo much to read and learn here! I'm just starting to scrapbook, along with my niece, and trying to not feel overwhelmed and intimidated. LOL!

Hello my fellow Scrappers!

First off, I am so happy that I found this site. Alas, I have been looking for other Scrapbooker to share and express my interest.

I am new to scrapbooking, I have been doing this for about a year( off/on).
Finally, I found something that does not cause my hips to spread,The kids would eat nor the doctor would have to tell me I need to quit.
I'm so excited until I am over whelmed.

Hi scrappinmyson,
Like you, I am a newbie, I have tried some of the adhesive that the other ladies mention. My favorite is the repositioning glue stick. That way, if I make an error, I can change it. I also like the glue dots.

I suggest you start by looking at the videos you can find here. Look in the toolbar up top and click on videos. Also check out the classes and resources in the tool bar. You will find a lot of information there.

You can also ask questions here.
