    Just wanted to extend a welcome to everyone that's signing up. I've been telling Angie for some time I thought there was need for more Stampin communities, this is proving me right.

    Obviously with this being new things are in flux and will be for a little while as the community begins to define itself. Over the next few days I'll be working on adding features and other enhancements. Any and all suggestions are welcome, drop them in the Suggestions forum below.

    Just a note. As I update things on the server or when I get around to creating a new theme to match the frontpage, sometimes things act a little weird. Two things to always try. Clear your browser cache and/or clear your browser cookies.

    I'm hoping to have TOS (I know rules) and the Privacy Policy added later tonight, along with some basic FAQ's. The main thing is to just have fun...

    James, thank you so much for all the work you do! It means a lot to us to have a place that is positive and inviting! There's enough drama out there without it invading my hobby and what is supposed to be a fun creative business!

    James, this new site of yours has inspired me to become more creative with my stamping and cardmaking. I am a member of Splitcoast as well and have never uploaded or became part of the discussion because of the thousands of cards and experienced stampers, I guess I felt intimidated. Since this is new, I feel that I can start at ground level and work up to thousands of posting, and upload my artwork. I have already uploaded one card, and am working on another, and plan on stretching my creativity to share with others. I am always looking for ways to spark my creativity and this has my mind working overtime! Thank you!!!

    Thanks for the big welcome, Sharon. It feels so good to be invited to be a "member of the family!" I really like it here, and I have just sent out an invite to my small monthly group, I hope they all join! This site has my creative juices flowing, and I think I needed a reason to sit at the scrapbook table instead of watching 24 and Lost!

    Thanks again for making feel feel right at home here!

    I'm a lot like you! I always felt a little intimidated :timid: but all the uploads! Then they really started to stray away from my love for SU! I was thrilled when I was invited to join this awesome site and I have even uploaded my cards that I've made over the last month and I'm really proud of having a gallery! I NEVER uploaded something for myself on that other site!

    Thank you to everyone that is making this site the positive place that crafting should be! I truely appreciate the hard work that goes into this and am looking forward to seeing more of what is to come.

    Shelley, a BIG SA welcome to you too! I'm so happy that you'll feel at home here and are comfortable enough to post and upload your projects. I so hope that everyone who comes here feels like you both and will continue to grow. Thanks so much for posting!!:huggy:

    Hi, Laurie and Shelley! Glad you've joined us! Yep, it's an awesome, friendly place, and be sure to check out the challenges! They're sure to get your creative juices going! I've been busy with other projects, so I'm dreaming of the day when I can jump on the challenge bandwagon. Welcome to both of you!

    Well, thanks to Shelley and Pamela as well! I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt intimidated at the other site. (Loved your icon, Shelley!) I felt kind of foolish admitting to it, but now I'm glad that I did. And I've just uploaded a couple of more cards, I think this site has created a monster! One April Challenge down, one to go!!! I am having fun and really enjoying this site. Thank you to all for making it feel like home!

    I'm in the same boat as you Laurie and Shelley. I was introduced to SCS and even joined the demo side of the forums there. But there was JUST SO MUCH already there that I quickly gave up trying to follow along. The only thing I ever did there was look through the galleries. Here I've posted, A LOT more than I thought I would, and up loaded pictures when my computer has played nice. Sad to say it hasn't played nice since last Friday. :(
