    Question Newbie here. Just starting out in Digital Design.

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Kristi and I am new here to Designer Digitals. I have loved graphic arts for a very long time, but never really pursued a career in this field. After viewing many digital scrapbooking sites, I now know that this is where I want to be. I love to design, and would be very grateful for any advice anyone is willing to share about how to get started in digital scrapbook design business.

    I really enjoy designing the products needed for one to put together a digital scrapbook. I have not done any actual layouts yet, mostly just papers and such. I hope to have a place here in Designer Digitals, a place where I can start showing my work and get advice.

    Thanks
    Kristi

    Hi there! You sure have come to the right place - it is a friendly community where you will find inspiration and help - AND build friendships if you stick around for a while.

    You should start posting in the Gallery and check out the Challenges that we have every week. Good luck!

    Hi there!
    My name is Laurie, and I'm not especially new to digital scrapbooking, but I AM always learning new techniques. I use paintshop and I'm self-taught, which means I probably do it all wrong lol!
    Wishing you lots of creative fun and look forward to seeing your pages!

    Hi Kristi, I am new, too. Welcome! I am going to try the picture a day. I really want to improve my photography. I got a Nikon d60 for Christmas a year ago and I still have so much to learn. I am a paper scrapbooker but I really want to transition into hybrid and some wholly digital. LOL.
    Anyway, hope to see you and your work around the forum.
