Hello everyone!

I am a newbie at digital scrapbooking and scrapbooking in general. I started out about 1 1/2 weeks ago ;)
But I love shiny ( in the "oh shiny!" and get distracted for hours way) and I used to make Icons for my Livejournal (look me up under nordlich if you are on tehre too), so I had a headstart with Photoshop.

I am still joining forums and introducing myself, getting the feel of the communities, and if you frequent the same places, you will probably have seen my introduction already ;)

Else, I scrap 8.5x11, because I like the feel of it being a book page.
I am using Adobe Photoshop CS 3 and really love it.
For organizing I am using the free Picasa software by Google, which was the best thing that people could have recommended.
I love being able to scroll through all my kits and pictures, stopping at the ones that will fit my LO.
Big recommendation to other newbies: Get Picasa for free!

Also, being told to organize my scrapping files by what they are (kits, elements, paper)and by webpage, andsave all zip files in a seperate folder for easier backups was advice that was worht its weight in gold.

However, enough blah blah.

Helllo again :p

So glad you found us! You're very smart to keep everything orgainzed right off the bat, because it can become overwhelming. I can't wait to see some of your layouts.

Welcome to a fun place!

Thanks everyone for the welcome!
I am easily overwhelmed with all the different challenges all over the place and I am an epic fail at keeping track of everything I want to do, but I'll be snooping around ;)

Do we have a single thread where everyone is showing off new layouts and asking for comments?
I love to snoop through them and leave comments while getting to know people and being inspired :p

Hello Nachtstern,
Welcome to SAS. I am a new member, myself, though I am not as new to scrapping as you are, I have been doing little schrap layouts for well over a year, but a few months ago, when we decided to make a scrapbook for our friend's wedding, I started scrapping in earnest. Needless to say I am now an addict ;)
Hope to see some of your work in the gallery.
By the way, I love your nickname.
