I'm so excited that some of you have decided to take the plunge and become a Fan Club Member!!! If for no other reason than to support the website it is well worth the investment !!! But I promise.....you will not regret it !!! I know that some of you have said you're wondering if the cards done by the Dirty Dozen are easily CASED.....I would say that about 90% of them are and any time you need help... the Dirty Dozen are there to help. You know when you look at a card in a magazine and you try to reproduce it....you can't call the publisher and ask them to contact the artist to get more instructions....WELL at the Fan Club you can do exactly that !!! It far surpasses ANY magazine subscription that you could ever buy !!!

Thanks for joining
corinne

The Fan Club/Dirty Dozen Gallery goes all the way back to July of 2004 and contains over 3,000 pictures. On top of that there is the Fan Club Forum where the patterns/templates/techniques are posted.
Okay, I'm not a Fan Club member (yet), but this post made me think, "aren't some stamping magazines $25 EACH?" I know I've seen some for at least $22.50 CAD.

It does seem like a good deal, and I WILL be signing up.

Another question -- if I want to pay by cheque via snail mail, and I'm in Canada, can I send a Canadian cheque in Canadian $$??

Judy and others with this same concern/question:
I use the DD gallery as the ultimate personal challenge. When I want to stretch my creativity, I take the theme for a particular month and run with it in my personal stamping, using the ideas as inspiration. My stuff may not be as ornate and detailed as some of theirs, but it fits within the theme just the same. I also use it to inspire myself to go that extra step or two. I tend to stop before adding that extra drop of pizazz thinkinng 'oh, that's too much' then I think, no, if the DD can do that, I can certainly do this...I'm by no means at their level, but I'm working slowly at a personal best.
I can honestly say my best work has come from those times when I've sat and used this process. Of course, do I post it, no, cuz I'm a freak about not posting CASED stuff from the DD gallery. I want you ALL to subscribe!!
As far as needing a bunch of extra supplies, it seems like these girls have a special knack for getting more from less...that's the impressive part!
I use SCS so much as a social and creative tool that for me not to support it financially is something I can't do...the DD gallery is a bonus and well worth it..
Take the plunge! You won't be sorry!

Is there lots of variation in the styles, or, because it's the DDG and there's a theme, is it all quite similar in style?

There is always a theme, but, as each of the designers is different in their approach towards the theme, I think it safe to say that there is a balanced variety of different styles represented.

Each member has their own style, I think. Although a lot of times I feel like I don't have a style, 'cause I'm too busy trying out different styles! I like them all, I guess. I would be bored with just one. I think the gallery usually has something for everyone.

One thing that I would like to add..........even though I have a website (which has become horribly neglected since SCS), I always considered the fact that SCS provides webspace to upload my creations to which I normally would have to pay for. I think $25 a year is more than a fair price for webspace to put our pictures in. If you look at it this way, the DD is all bonus.

Hmmm... and as a variation on that, I'm sure my bf would say that it's worth it just because it provides validation for me that he doesn't need to!!

I'm Canadian, and I find PayPal is so much easier! When I joined, with the exchange rate, it was 29.00. Is there any reason you do not want to pay via PayPal?

Just cuz I've had a bad experience with it in the past.

I am already on SCS WAY too much - but I have really wanted to join the fan club. I am glad I found this thread, you guys answered all my questions and I didn't even have to ask. I should just do it!
