Default Hello!

Good morning! My name is Corinne (my nephew calls me Coco, hence my username ) and Im new here!

Ive been scrapbooking for about 2 years and have been making cards for about 1. I normally learned new techniques with my best friend as we always crafted together but we no longer live close so I turned to the internet! My oh my, I had no idea the craft community was so large! Almost overwhelming lol

Ive been watching some Jennifer Mcquire lessons and signed up for Studio Calicos monthly kits last night so hopefully that is a good start!

I need to figure out a good way to find/save blogs and things like that, it looks like you ladies do several contests here so I figure this would be a great place to learn.

I browsed through the Gallery and I must say you ladies are fantastic! So creative, I think Im going to like it here!

Hello Corinne! Welcome!

Love the username

Check out our home page for a list of our daily challenges - they are fun, inspiring and it's a great way to get to know people! I just finished doing the Clean and Simple challenge from today - to use red and white.

I'm a fellow Texan.

Please let me know if I can help you with anything!

Howdy Coco!

I'm from Texas, too.

I haven't seen too many of Jennifer McGuire's videos.

This is a great site for learning new things and for challenges. If you're available this weekend the new Virtual Stamp Night challenges start.

As for keeping track of blogs, I use bloglovin' to keep track of blogs I like to visit.

Feel free to ask as many questions as you need. There is always someone here available to help.

Hi Coco and welcome from New Zealand! I also watch Jennifer McGuire's videos - love what she does with distress inks! Have fun exploring the forum.

Hi Corinne, I'm from Australia, love looking at what everyone is doing and havent posted a card and dont have a card blog yet. Hope to change that starting in the new year. I love watching Jennifer Mcguire videos, you learn sooooo much and I just love her colour choices, so close to my own.
I love to keep track of whats happening using Feedly which is an app that works on ipads and android devices. It is really easy to use. Once you have saved a url to the app it automatically saves any updates that have happened on that blog. Saves you going looking for info all the time. Also if you see something you want to read again later or do you can just save within Feedly and access whenever. You will also need thé app Pocket which is where the addresses go for anything you bookmark within Feedly. If I have confused you and you want to know more let me know and I will explain better.

Hi Coco
I know its great isnt it. I have over 100 now but the best thing is that you dont have to troll thru them all, you can just read the headline or look at the card to see if you want to go further. I love it
