I'm another one who has come into stamping via scrapbooking. I had alway put my photographs into books but with the advent of digital photography got out of the habit of doing anything with my photos. My old neighbour had me over for a Creative Memories party and I got into scrapbooking as a way to bring my digital photographs to light. It seemed an easy progression to cardmaking from there. My sister-in-law made cards and I scrapbooked. We got together and hybridized our hobbies. Now we do both cards and scrapbooks. I love this hobby! I am a somewhat shy individual but stamping and cardmaking has allowed me to expand my social contacts and have fun with a group of like minded individuals. This site has allowed me to learn new techniques to share with my friends. What a wonderful place!
