Hi, I am a newbie to scrapbooking. I have navigated and learned so much from the site. I am ready to start on my first book.

Hello I guess that my being new to the wonderful world of scrapbooking goes without saying. I never thought I could make a book - always just pushed the idea aside when I walked passed that particular aisle of the craft stores - until I got some inspiration. A reason to make a book that would mean something to me. /cheese

Anyway - here I am I'm looking forward to getting comfortable around here!

OK I'm completely new to scrapbooking but when you've got 4 kids and plain generic "baby books" that don't grow with your kids it's hard to find something that you want. I decided on scrapbooking for a number of reasons A) can grow with them B) seriously need time to myself and C) just really, really need something to do to sray busy. LOL

Hello, I'm not sure if I'm new to scrap-booking or not!
I've always loved collage, calligraphy and documenting stories and experiences into something you can touch, feel and share. I never thought of myself as a scrap booker, but perhaps I am!

I'm really interested in exploring the scrapbook world further - in part for myself and also because I'm the new communications bunny at zbeckybrown. I've seen scrapbookers make fantastic use of our products to display their work and want to make sure we have ways of listening to creative folks like yourselves.

Happy creating, this seems like a great community.

Liz

I should add, I'll mostly lurk as zbeckybrown sells products and I don't want to violate your participation rules and promote things when I shouldn't be! If anyone uses one of their bags to show off their work and would like to be featured on our website they can get in touch by e-mailing liz@zbeckybrown.com

Newbie here! I've been shopping around & picking up tools here & there. I don't know what it was but, a few weeks ago something clicked & I wanted to start scrapbooking badly!! Hubby is behind me 100% and is currently designing my 1/2 of our craft 'studio' (4th bdrm). Can't wait!
I appreciate all the tips & all the guidance offered on this site! I'm currently trying to decide which die cutter to buy - Cuttlebug or Sizzix Big Shot. I love the idea of embossing!
Thanks again for all of your knowledge & wisdom any of you wish to pass along!
I can't wait to show my FIRST page!!!

Hi Everyone. I am fairly new to scrapbooking. I have to say I have become addicted to it. I have been on SB a lot looking at galleries and forums. I have been inspired. I look forward to getting to know the SB family. I have posted some layouts, please let me know what you think. Great to meet you all!!!

Hi girls,
I am new here and what's more I am writing from Poland. I started scrapbooking a year ago making an album for my sister and her husband who visited Poland for the first time.

I am very impresed with all those tools you have for your crafting. I've got some papers and punches from my sis and that's great.
More and more girls in Poland start scrapbooking but still we don't have that much staff like you do.
I started my first album by covering pages with .....wall papers. That was great fun.
All the best to all of you.

PS My English isn't excellent and I'm not very good at computers but I will try my best

Hi all,

I'm new here, too. Completely green with pretty much no idea where to start. I have a 3.5 year old daughter who I take pictures of constantly, so I'd like to start scrapbooking.

I don't have much to start, but I know this is something I can really get into. I will document this learning process on my blog.

Hi I am new to this forum and to Scrapbooking so I will have some questions I am sure along the way. There is a lot of information on here but sometimes I like to get feed back from more than one source. Its a bad habit but it does help with some things.

Well you may find it easier to pick a photo and design your LO around that photo. This way your colors in the photo and LO coordinate and dont clash. Also, you will want your embellishments to match as well.
