Thread: New Here and to Scrapping

  1. #1

    New Here and to Scrapping


    My name is Laura and I am new here and to scrapping...I've been playing around with PSE 5 but keep stumbling. I try and pick up tips wherever I can!

    I live in Fairbanks, Alaska with my husband and 17 dogs. We absolutely LOVE the winter and get out with our dogs on skis and mush on a sled too. So, I really love the winter kits and I'm trying to make my first layout out with pictures from our winter wonderland!

    Everyone seems very friendly and helpful (which I appreciate!).


  2. Hey Laura!
    I'm Shana, and I'm a new designer here at GDS. I started digi scrapping a year ago after paper scrapping for about 11 years. I found this so much for efficient and easier to keep up with supplies, etc. Have you ever scrapped at all?
    Either which way, you're sure to find tons of help here. May I suggest checking out the classes offered here. They are amazing for newbies like yourself.
    As for being in Alaska, I also grew up there. Lived in Eagle River, Anchorage, then the last six years we were in Cordova. I now am back home in Mississippi. BIG change from what I was used to! Been 20 years now, and I still feel out of place sometimes.

    Look forward to seeing your layouts and pictures of that land I miss so much!

    (By the way, Melody, a Supreme Team member here, is also in Alaska!)

    Welcome Laura! I'm Cheri, rumkimom's sister

    I'm also new to GDS and to digiscrapping. In fact, I purchased my PSE program about 2 weeks ago. Anyway, I thought that, depending on how much "stumbling around" you are doing, you might be interested in what was recommended to me ... taking the PSE class. The February one just started ...

    Good luck with learning! Hope to see you around.
