If there is another place to introduce ourselves, I didn't see one. So the moderators are welcome to move this post as appropriate.

Many years ago, around 2006, when I started scrapbooking, I found an awesome website where I could order products, find wonderful pictures of ideas and forums to make friends. That site has closed down.

I relocated to another part of the country in 2008. There are no scrapbooking stores in my area. So I decided to search online for a new local to hang out.

Also in the meantime, my scrapbooking supplies have been in storage for 4 years, awaiting shipment to my new home. Well a very good friend of mine is coming for a visit and agreed to pick up my scrapbooking supplies and drive them to me! So next Tuesday (Feb. 5), I get my supplies. I'm sure I'll be knee-deep in organization for a while but it won't take me long to jump back into my passion!

This site seems to have been around a while and a good place to settle for a bit.

So in short, hello fellow scrapbook enthusiasts!

Hi Julie - welcome to scrapbook.com! Its an awesome place. If I spent as much time scrapbooking as I do on the boards I'd really get a lot accomplished!

I think I spend about 2 or 3 hours here for everyone 1 hour I spend scrapping.

I know you will get excited to be reunited with your scrappy stuff!

What part of the country are you in? I'm in Ocala, FL. They used to have our city and state under our photos but took them off years ago. I wish they would put them back on - that was really a nice feature.

There is a part to talk to others from your state oe country but that is not very active. If I go to my area no one has posted in several years. That bad.

This is the best place for your post to be seen. Some people post it in "beginning scrapbooking" but I this is more active.

I can't imagine being separated from my scrap stuff for 4 years!

Good luck jumping back into scrapping and welcome!

Welcome to SB.com!

I can tell by looking @ my scrapbooks just about when I joined this site. I have learned so much just be hanging out here on the boards.

There's some real nice people on here, and they are always willing to answer any questions you may have. Just jump in & enjoy the ride!

Welcome Julie! That will be so great to get your supplies finally! I see you are in Nevada, I am just a few states away here in WA state, on the Idaho side. Where did you move from? There is so much here and the shopping is Superior too

Welcome, Julie! I just found this site last week & it is amazing! I am trying to figure it all out - what an awesome group of people, full of the same interests, with an incredible amount of talent - so fun!

Wow! I just found this site last night and halfway through the day, there's all these wonderfully friendly responses. Thank you!

To answer your questions:

I lived in Indiana prior to moving to Las Vegas, NV. Yes, there are around 2 million people who live here whom you never see unless they are serving you drinks, taking your money at the tables, carrying your luggage or pan handling on the streets. *laughs*

I do look forward to looking through the galleries. On the other site was on, I could also tell via my scrapbooks exactly when I got on the site. My pages improved and changed dramatically as I learned techniques and fun layouts that matched my preferences.

Question: what are the rules for signatures on the forums? I don't want to break any rules on my second post!

Welcome Julie!
I love it here as well. I browse the gallery all the time for inspiration. I shop here A LOT! They have pretty much anything you need!
The forums are great for getting answers, opinions etc. And I know some people do the challenges here for fun and inspiration as well...

Per board rules:
* Posting links to any external scrapbooking or craft site is prohibited. This includes online stores or sites of any kind related to scrapbooking, E-Bay, etsy or other auction sites. (Links and content of this nature should only be shared via email or Private Message).

* Signatures, private messages, and avatars may not contain advertising information for other sites.
* Signatures, private messages, and avatars may not contain inappropriate content or profanity.
* Signatures, posts, and threads may not contain images of any kind. (Content of this nature should only be shared via email, Private Message, or posted in the Layout Gallery and linked in message text.) Graemlins are not considered images.
------------------------- ------------
A lot of people post the challenges they are in, quotes they like, and/or their blogs.
It's basically easy. If you question if it should be there, don't put it there. Blogs can't be posted if they sell stuff. The rules I stated don't include that but it's a rule. When they say not to advertise other sites, that means sites that sell stuff. They are a business after all!

Thank you for the rules Kendra! I'm glad you mentioned no pictures in the forums. I probably would have eventually unknowningly broken that particular rule!

I don't suppose the Store has a monthly kit club or something like that? I really miss that part of the old online store I was associated with. For $30 a month, you got a kit of the latest cool stuff, with a sheet that showed a couple of design ideas using those products. It's how I majorily increased my supplies and learned a lot about layouts. I never know what to buy a lot of the times and have a ton of stuff I'll probably never use.

I broke the rule too when I first started out. I posted one of those tickers tracking stuff. Megan is quite nice to warn you without making you feel like a total klutz!

If in doubt start a new thread and yell for Megan. She's very quick at popping in and answering our questions.

We can link photos here through our galleries. A while back a lot of us were posting photos of our pets which was fun.

The rule of thumb is to remember that scrapbook.com is a store and they sell wonderful scrapbook supplies. If something advertises another online site that sells scrapbook supplies or anything craft supplies that compete with the store at scrapbook.com - don't link it.

Everyone mentiones the big box stores (Hobby Lobby, Joann's, Michaels) but we don't link them.

Actually they are very very generous here to what they allow. I just stay clear of linking online competitors.

I think about it as a fairness thing. Scrapbook.com gives us a lot and doesn't charge a penny. People here, including me, are very loyal to scrapbook.com - just be fair to them and you are good to go.

Oh Corrie, you just made my day and ruined my husband's. *laughs* Thanks much! I assume that the prices that are marked out are the regular prices for the products in the kit.

You have made a great impression on me with your courtesy re: the rules etc and interest.

I have a great feeling that we are going to love having you here as much as you will love being here.

Welcome Julie! You've found a lovely, comforting, friendly place to hang out. Put on your pjs, pull up a seat, grab your glitter and join right in.

And Jane, I didn't know about the kit either - thank you! Off to look....
