Hi everyone! I am new to scrapbooking in general as well as digital scrapbooking. I came across a book on digital scrapbooking at Hobby Lobby last summer shortly before we had our first son, and thought that would be a great way to keep memories especially without all the hassle of tons of papers etc. to get out each time (which I knew I would never do with a new baby!). So I bought Photoshop Elements 7, but knew next to nothing about where to start.
Then this fall I just did a Google search and came across Designer Digitals. I LOVED what I saw in the gallery and all of the materials that were offered in the store. So I joined, gave it a try, and have since learned a lot about digital scrapbooking from the great tips, others' posts, the tutorials, trial and error, etc. It is SO much fun! I really love that it feels like a community on here and I get to see faces of the people who respond to my pages. Thanks so much to everyone for all the great comments!
I am awed by everyone's pages, and especially by the photography I've seen on here. It has so inspired me that I am planning to make the leap and buy my first DSLR camera today! (A Canon XSi) I already have Katrina's Get Me Off of Auto E-book to get me going. That way I won't have to rely anymore on the pictures I've had taken by others (I feel like I'm doing pages of all the same photos or am running out of good photos at this point.) And I have hopes of doing a 365 book this year! So there's my whole story (probably more than I needed to share), but thank you to everyone for the comments and tips, and for making this a great site!
