Thread: Hello from Paris, France

  1. #1

    Talking Hello from Paris, France

    Hi there,

    Writing from Paris, France under heavy snow today.
    I found this website (and community) because I'm on a December Daily and I'm planning my 2013 Project Life (first one I'll be doing), and while searching for new stuff... here I am.
    My goal here is to find things I can use on real scrapbooking. In fact... I want to use digital stuff I could print and cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I don't even know how it work since I'm new to digital (and Cameo which I've been using for about a year but on basic cutting work).
    I use a Mac and I'm a real beginner with Photoshop and Gimp.
    I'm sure I'll learn plenty new things here.
    Bye for the moment.
    PS: sorry for any spelling or syntax mistakes... French is my natural language!

    Welcome to DD Pika! There is a whole gallery of Project Life pages here - some of us do 100% digital and some do what you are planning and mix some digital with some traditional papers.

    Also, Ali Edwards has some fabulous products that can be used with your Silhouette. I believe you can use most of her word art in Silhouette. I don't have one myself, but I wish I did!

    There is always someone here to help at DD so please ask if you need more advice. Happy Scrapping!

    Thank you very much to all of you girls for your warm welcome!!!!!
    I'll try to finish filling in my profile as soon as possible.In a few days at the most since I'm working all week end long.
    Concerning digital, I really want to mix it with traditional. I'm lucky enough to have that Caméo so it's high time to use it to its full range of possibility.
    I'm a bit afraid because I do not know where to start with but at least... I'll try.

    So here's the first question....
    For my Project Life... is it possible to download journaling card, print them and just use tham? The question will probably sound suilly to you but to me... if it is THAT simples.... hum doesn'it hide something?

    Welle for now it's time to.... go back to work.

    have a nice day!!!!!

    Bienvenue à DD, Pika! Nous sommes heureuses que vous nous avez trouvées! (Et oui... nous sommes en majorité des femmes! Et j'espère que ma grammaire française est OK! )

    Yes, you can download and print out the PL cards... they would make a great start to a hybrid card or just use them on their own! Please share your pages with us, too... we'd love to see them!

    Hi girls,

    @ Beehive: ton français est impeccable!

    @ Maureen: I've been using Mac for the last few months only so if I have any question be sure I'll ask.

    @ Jen: Hybrid... that's the word!

    My problem just now is that... I do not know what to download first!!!
    Right now I'm at work (pfffff... working on a Sunday morning at 6 AM!!!!) but when I'll get back home I'll try to fill in my profile.

    Have a nice day y'all!
