Wink Scrapbooking for 16 yrs, but new to digital

I've been scrapbooking for 16 years, but just started trying digital. I took some Jessica Sprague photoshop classes and was hooked immediately! I love it and it's environmentally friendly. I'm a grad student in an environmental studies program, so I'm always looking for ways to help the environment. I have 2 daughters, 16 in May and 14 in June. I currently live in North Texas but will be relocating based on a job with my master's degree.

I look forward to learning from everyone on this forum!

Cindi

Hi Cindi! Welcome to DSP. I was a paper scrapper for over a decade, too.....but once I tried digital, I never looked back! (I always try to be a good steward of the Lord's earth, too). We are so happy that you are here and we look forward to seeing your layouts!

Welcome Cindi! I love the lack of waste with digi scrapping - not to mention the fact you never run out of supplies! Hope you enjoy it here

Welcome to DSP Cindi! I was never a paper scrapper and from all I have heard, could never be, I don't cope well with "stuff' - would soon have it take over the house! Looking forward to seeing your layouts in the gallery soon

Welcome to DSP (again!) I wanted to add a few links for your reference. I think that a lot of us came out of the paper scrapping world and some of us do both still! There are loads of advantages to both and there is no reason you shouldn't give up one to do the other. We have some members who are great at hybrid pages, which use the advantages of both worlds!!

Just to help get you started, here are some helpful links (click on any red underlined links!):

These are a few tutorials you might find helpful if you haven't found them already (lots available in The Campus, but these are great to get you started):

A bit of information about DSP ... There are forums (that is where we are now) where you can get to know people, ask questions, participate in challenges; a gallery filled with layouts posted by other members where you can find all kinds of inspiration, and you can post your own creations to share with the community (and get comments and constructive suggestions if you want to help build your skills, or get stuck on a page); and of course a store (requires separate registration from the forums and gallery) brimming with all kinds of goodies that will keep you scrapping for years!

The Freebie Gallery, has all kinds of stuff you can download to get started.

Digital Scrapbook University (DSU) offers some great classes, from just getting started, all the way through more advanced techniques. Depending on what kind of a learner you are, one of these might be a great place to start. Digital Scrapbooking 101 has some good information on available programs to choose from and other basics to get you started.

Best of all, there is a new member chat! We hope you will come to "The Buzz," on Wednesays at 10pm US Eastern Standard Time. You can find instructions for joining the chat HERE . You'll get to meet some of our members and newbees just like yourself! You can ask questions about the site or share things that you might have learned and you'll get a free page kit for attending!

When you want to get even MORE freebies, you can participate in challenges on the site. For a list of everything going on at DSP - check out our "What's Happening" link and for a list of the current challenges, check out "What's Due!"

And don't forget to sign up for our Newsletter!. If you browse through the old newsletters, you will find some freebies as part of those also!

Feel free to ask questions, there is always someone who can help! I look forward to seeing your creations in the gallery!
