Hello all! I am brand new to scrapbooking. I am a sales person by profession and a father of a beautiful 7 yr old daughter. I have always be very creative by nature and loved to draw as a young boy. Being tin he sales world I recently started drawing again to relieve stress. While in a local craft store I found and fell in love with the Tim Holtz collection and decided I wanted to start capturing my daughters life and memories via scrapbooking. This decision was made at the end of January and already I have amassed quite the stash and have spent hours training myself via YouTube, scrapbook.com etc. I recently posted my first two pages and some butterflies that I created seeking feedback. That said, I recently found the New User forum and thought I would reach out here as well in hopes of developing some forum friends to exchange ideas and learn from. I tend to favor stamping and the distressed look, but I want to know and try it all. Thank you for the view and any tips advice and feedback is welcomed.

Welcome to the neighborhood and the awesomely fun world of scrapbooking!!

Tim Holtz is a favorite of many (myself included!) and his products are super fun to experiment with.

This is a great site to get inspiration from the gallery, to interact with the helpful people here, and to shop the awesome selection of products!! There are also product and technique videos here, articles and classes. Take time to explore the site. You'll get a lot from it.
Grab your favorite beverage and start exploring!!

Welcome!

I think your butterflies are absolutely amazing! My father passed away 2 years ago this month and I'm working on a memorial scrapbook for him. Whenever I see butterflies, I think of him. So seeing yours today made me feel pretty awesome. I'm going to have to learn your secrets lol. Thank you

Your daughter is going to love being able to look back on these memories and be able to see herself through your eyes. Enjoy making memories!

Please note the the poster above me in this thread, "princelee1019", is just copying text from posts elsewhere in the thread (in this case, Kim222's post from 2/26). My experience with posters like this in the past has been that they often come back to edit the post with spam links later on.

Thanks 4 the comments on the butterflies SJB 1120! I had a lot of fun with those and I am currently working on some awesome butterfly combinations using the Tim Holtz Fanciful die (Bigz). There are endless combinations.
