Hey everyone! I'm new as well, but I'm completely addicted. I am getting overwhelmed by all the fun embellishments and stickers and such. I wanted to know what people thought the best adhesive is to use for putting buttons and things like that on your pages???
I am new too!! Went to my first scrapbook party Friday night, I was overwhelmed. I live in Jax, Fl and we have a store here that is HUGE. I spent more time looking and feeling confused at all of the papers, tools, gadgets (most of which I new nothing about!). I made two page that I do not want to show anyone! I am on a mission though....
I finally got some real tools to begin scrapping. I am pretty new but my Mom does the most amazing books. She came out for Thanksgiving and we did a page together because my former pages looked like my 9 month old did it:) I am having a lot of fun and appreciate all of the tips and advice on this site...thank you all
I dapple in scrapbooking, I'm also new at this, and I love it. I tried to do a little by myself, and I think that my pages look to plain. I like a lot of color, not to drown out the color of the picture but just enough to make it stand out. Something on the order of someone saying Wooooo Haaaaaaa!!!!!! I hope this scrapbooking journey will help me be one of the best.
Hi everybody! My name is Cindy and I am a New Kid on the Block too! So far I am still in the learning process, but I can tell I already love scrapping. I'm starting off with the Scrapbooking Guide 1. I also want to thank everyone for the warm welcomes I have gotten.
I have been scrapping only about a year. If I may give another newbie a huge bit of advice. Don't let yourself get so caught up in "collecting supplies" that you never use them or seldom use them. Not only is it a huge hit on your pocketbook, but you will also run out of storage space for all your goodies and supplies.
I made that mistake of collecting supplies left and right. After a year of scrapping I only have on album done. I have now decided that I must get so many pages done before I allow myself to buy anymore "cool supplies."
( And boy does SB.com make it tough!)
I agree. This site is a little overwhelming, but, just like with scrapbooking, once you start, it's hard to stop. Be sure to check out others' "My Place" and invite them to your friends list. Get a little community of your own started. It will help encourage you in your own scrapbooking efforts.
Hi, I am new here and also to scrapbooking! I'm glad I found this site...I'm going to need all the help I can get! I'm not a very "crafty" kind of person but would really like to start putting together some nice keepsakes for my 3 daughters! I have just started purchaseing some items such as stickers, photo safe glue, albums, and some colorful pages. If anyone has absolute favorites on anything they use for their scrapbooks, I would love to hear what they are!
