Hi everyone. I'm Nicole and live near Keller, Texas. I'm mom to Skyli, my crazy beautiful, almost 3 year old, daughter. I love Sky, taking pictures of her and the thought of scrapping them all. In desperate need of a secret life outside of being a SAHM, I've been trying to figure out this Scrapping thing for a few months now. So far, all I can seem to do is organize photos and supplies (30 gigs worth so far...yikes!!). I'm so glad I found you all but man it's alot of info! I look forward to learning and sharing with you all.


I believe children are the meaning of life. They are our fountain of youth, our hope for the future, our unconditional love.
Capture their memories, tell their stories and life goes on forever.

Hi Nicole and welcome to Scrap Girls. You'll find this a helpful and informative site with lots of people willing to help. If you go to the Boutique, you'll see a few free ebooks you can download that might be helpful. There's also a free collection called "A Narrative Collection" to help you get started. (Go to "misc categories" then to "free downloads").
And don't forget to sign up for the newsletter and a freebie six days a week.
Have fun and never hesitate to post question if you're stuck. Hope to see you around the forum.

Hi, Nicole! Welcome to Scrap Girls. Another suggestion: Check out our "Learn How to Scrapbook" section in the boutique. The Secrets videos are how a lot of us started out, they're fantastic. Like the other girls said, don't be afraid to ask questions, we're a really helpful bunch!

Welcome Nicole, from a fellow Texan now living in VA. This is a friendly, helpful place. If you need to start small, we have recipe card swaps where you design recipes cards and swap with a group, or ATC (trading cards) that you design and swap. Then there are challenges and chats every day to make layouts and give you ideas. You probably are already aware of the great sales SG has. I buy too much!
I hope you enjoy being with us. It is addicting, though.B)/>/>

Hi Nicole!
I am so glad you have joined us here! I wish I would have had access to Scrap Girls when my children were young! (I did paper scrapbooking and my preschool-aged boy loved my tools and I would find them all over the house!)
