Hello! I guess I should introduce myself.

I'm Suzanne, living in Virginia. My husband and I are expecting our first child (a daughter) anyday now.
My due date is October 10th, however the doctor says she will be here anyday now.

I've had a lot of scrapbooking items and I've made a few things, however now I'm ready to get into it full swing. I am going to be a stay at home mother and I want to make sure that I capture all happenings in my daughters life. I have started her a book, as well as a family (general) book. So, now I would like to join this board and get a lot of ideas from you other ladies.

The machinery that I own right now are the cricut and the cuddlebug. I've never used the cuddlebug before but I do love my cricut. I need to pick up some cartridges though, as I only have the one that came with my machine.

Well, I hope you ladies will help me out when needed! I hope you don't mind me joining the board.

Hi, Suzanne!!

This is actually an introduction to this board for me, as well. I'm new to scrapbooking (even moreso than you -- I have no gadgets of which to speak), and am starting out with making thank-you cards for everyone who bought things for our baby, who is due just four days before yours! (I recognized you from the October DDC). I am really looking forward to getting some great ideas, and eventually posting some of my stuff, as I (hopefully) get better.


Thank you,
PinkCuppycakeSprinkles, for my beautiful siggy!!

Welcome girls! I was supposed to have an October baby but he didn't show til November! That was 3 years ago now already!

Suzanne, you should give your cuttlebug a try! It is awesome! My favourite tool, I think! I like it even more than the cricut, believe it or not!

My name is Jerusha, I am a mom to Aiden who is almost 3 and Micah who is almost a year old now! They both have birthdays in November. I have been scrapping for about 3 years and I love it!!!

Don't forget to start up a gallery for yourselves and post some of your projects there!!

Hi Suzanne and Maggi. Welcome to the board. I'm Grace, mum to one dd, Calleigh who's 2 1/2. I started scrapbooking early this year and I am completely hooked. Suzanne, I have the cricut expressions and I love it. For more information on what to get as a beginner scrapbooker, you can check out this sticky

Happy scrapbooking and I can't wait to see your layouts.

Welcome Suzanne and Maggi! I am so glad you have joined us. This is a great group of ladies and a wonderful place to come for inspiration. I'm Jen, mom to Sydney (4.5 yrs) and Logan (just turned 2). I have been scrapping since my first was born but just recently started to really get into it in the past year. I can't wait to see what you do.

Congrats on your pink bundle!!!!

Tomorrow starts our September Cyber Crop which gives you 8 challenges(4 on Friday and 4 more on Saturday)to do. It can really help to get pages done. Also check out the Gallery, where a lot of the finished pages from our ladies here can be seen, feel free to scraplift their ideas. Scraplifting is encouraged

As a Cricut addict and user, a few cartridges I suggest getting are Graphically Speaking(I can't rave about this one enough), Storybook(since you're having a girl), New Arrival and Jasmine. The Provo Craft site has what each cartridge contains. The SideKick I have used at my sisters and it has some great dies to use, very fun to.

So glad you are here!!


to you to Maggi!!!

Congrats on your bundle, you are getting close

We look forward to hearing about you're newest, very exciting. Can't wait to have you here and showing your layouts!!!

Hoefully you can check out our Cyber crop starting tomorrow, may help you get going on some pages. the sketchs are really helpful to newbie and us oldies as they show you how a layout(LO)looks and you just put your our style to it, very easy


I'm Michelle SAHM expecting #12, our 9th boy. Lots of blue pages in my albums

I've been scrapbooking since Februray 2001, took some time off for morning sickness and getting my oldest off to college this summer

Very glad to be working on pages myself again
