I have been getting the newsletter for several months now and have read some of the posts linked in it, but have just been a lurker here on the forum. I decided it's time to come out of lurkdom! I've been making cards and doing the occasional scrapbook for years now, but I taught myself--and it turns out I'm not a very good teacher!
I'm also on a very strict budget, so my supplies are bought in bits and pieces, mostly on sale. As a result, nothing co-ordinates! I dream of someday having perfectly matched supplies like the Stampin' Up stuff.
Anyway, I love making cards, and I'm looking forward to learning a lot from the talented folks here at SCS.
