    Smile I'm a newbie here!!

    Hello and thank you all for allowing me to be part of Designer Digitals. I'm always up to meeting new friends! I'm from Kentucky and yes, I'm a county girl! I love my little Family, I love photography and always want learn as much about it as I can. I also love digital designs, but don't really know much about it and how to go about designing all the pretty stuff that people do. So, I came across DesignerDigitals and thought I would join. So, Here I am!! Can't wait to learn from you all and to get to know as many of you that I can. Have A Blessed Day!

    Welcome Marie! You will find this very addictive, it's all about memory keeping which is something we hold dear to our hearts, and the pages help to scratch our creative itch. So have you delved into Photoshop or elements or any other program, or how new are you?

    Hi Marie! How wonderful to have you here with us at DD . . . I know that you will love it here. This is the friendliest and most helpful place to be as a scrapper. I have asked many questions on "how to" for this or that and have always received an answer which is so helpful.

    Welcome Marie! We all started as newcomers, and I still recall crying when I got so frustrated in trying to do my first not-even-a-page. You ask here and you get answers! Understandable answers. I have also found that while I can make some digital things to use, it's sooooo much easier to buy the designer's products and get on with the fun part. Plus your supplies never run out!!

    Hi Marie from Kentucky! Welcome to DD. Can't wait to see your pages in the gallery! Good advice from the ladies above about starting points. There are so many resources here that you can learn from. If you haven't been to the "Getting Started" Section, I'd recommend it as it gives some great advice for starting out in creating digital scrapbook pages. As as Aino said above, the tutorials are amazing and will take you step by step. Templates are another great way to get started! Have fun!
