Hi ladies, I have been a member for over a year now, but have not really used this site. So today I decided it is time. I am from Ontario Canada and was wondering if there were any ladies from the GTA on here. I am not sure how to use this website, so if anyone has any suggestions, please could you forward them to me. Thank you so much for your time and hope to hear back with some suggestions. Take care all. Dianne

Hey Diane - right under this message, underneath where it says "Lydia" - I have my signature, with a bunch of blue links. Each of those is a link to something helpful to get you oriented on Splitcoast, including a video on uploading to the gallery.

Hi, I have only visited the site once before so decided to take the plunge and register. I lived in Yorkshire, England a few miles from the birthplace of the Bronte sisters. I am married with a daughter and a grandson. I have been card making for a number of years and enjoy other crafts, such as cross-stitch and am about to try quilting for the first time.
I don't know how to use the site but I have a feeling I will love every minute of it. Lol Mary

Hi Lydia, thank you for your warm welcome. I have had a quick peek at the gallery, it will take me months to get through it, but by then of course there will be more added. I'm going to take it nice and easy so I don't miss a thing.
Thank you for your kind offer of help, I'll try not to pester you too much. Mary

Hi,
Craftyvron here, have just joined SCS after 'lurking' in the gallery for ages. This site is just out of this world. Never seen so many cards made using the same items and yet all soooooo different.
I am a happy home card maker, don't sell or have a blog, just enjoy sending cards to family and friends and making birthday cards for church members.
At church we have a small group called the Young at Heart......for all ages, meet fortnightly and we do all sorts of bits and pieces and invite speakers when able to find any.
We are at the moment using old/used cards to cut up and make 'new' cards to send to others for birthdays, get well or simply as a pick me up.
This site is perfect for ideas and inspiration. Thanks to all who share their talents with us.

I have been lurking in the gallery for ages, and finally decided to join. I'm thinking the SWAPS sound fun! I have a Girl Scout troop of older girls, and am always looking for craft projects for their age group. This is a great site!!

Hi there, I'm new to SCS and also a fairly new SU demonstrator. I joined in January and have got completely hooked on the products. I think I have already earned a Bronze 3 level with the stuff I've bought. My hubby is starting to go a bit mad at the amount of boxes I keep getting.

I'm going on holiday next week and will be away quite a bit so I'm trying to organise myself so that when I get back I can make a good start at doing some regular workshops and hopefully be able to get some friends and clients to buy from me so that it will feed my habit, lol.

I love quite a few crafts including knitting and stitching but I always struggle for ideas and inspiration. Everything I do I criticise, so I am learning to use the SU products which I feel are easier to create with due to the colour co-ordinations and stamping sets etc and I'm finally starting to love my creations.

The ideas and inspirations from the members on this site and other SU demonstrator blogs are fantastic and I love the way everyone helps and shares their ideas.

I hope I will also be able to make a few friends here too.

Thanks for listening, Yvonne

Default Thank you

I've just asked to join the SU Demonstrator Group so I'll have to wait for my acceptance. I'm fairly new to blogging too and just working my way around the site.

LOL, yeah my hubby was asking loads of questions today and I told him I was gonna give up my job so I could craft all day (I work with him part-time) and he just laughed and said 'yeah, so what's new?'. He's the best, he lets me do what I want most of the time but thanks for the advice, I'll certainly try but the deliveries come to work so sometimes I get found out, hehehe.

Hi,
I'm new to SCS and a new SU demonstrator (Mar11). I've been stamping for a few years now but really became addicted this year. From what I've seen so far, SCS looks awesome and I can't wait to really dive in!

Hello, all! I'm Sheila and I'm new to the site (relatively), but not new to stamping/scrapping. I am currently making cards for Operation Write Home and am considering becoming a SU demonstrator. I'm hoping to get lots of great ideas!

hey... used to be a SU! demo but started getting these cute kids to take care of and something had to give, especially since my stamping room had to become their bedroom. small house, heh? anyway, they are now getting ready to go to school and so my former best customer wants to get together to stamp and it kinda has the juices flowing again and i remembered this site as THE best place for ideas and inspiration so here i am. so i'm not really new to SCS except that i haven't been here in a few years and so much as changed in the world of stamping/scrapping. i'll have questions.

oh, i'm from maine, a sah member of the MOB (mother of boys) and well... yeah. that about sums it up for now.
