Hi everyone

My name is dee and i'm from the UK. I initially started out by making hand made cards about 8 years ago, but discovered Photoshop so decided to buy it, only to sit staring at it on and off for the next 3 months totally clueless lol. I finally self taught myself and have been creating scrapbook papers, layouts and quickpages that I mainly use for personal creations. I am hoping to be able to get the time to get some stuff done and put on here to share with everyone soon. This site is great and I have already learnt things on here that I thought I already knew and hope to learn much more as well as meet some new people :gathering:

Welcome to Scrap Girls. I also started with card making. Loved it but had to clean up the mess every ttime I stopped. Digi scrapping is ideal. I just switch off the PC when I'm done. Looking forward to seeing some of your layouts.

Hello and welcome,

I live in Oxfordshire, but I'm originally from Yorkshire. I'm fairly new on the forum even though I've been getting the newsletter and buying items for years. I was nervous about adding my first few layouts because there are such good ones in the layout, but everyone adds such nice comments that I find it really motivating to keep going. I hope you do too.
