Default Overwhelmed!

I have been checking out this site for several days and I am in awe of all of the talent! As a beginner, I am intimidated, inspired, and embarrassed to post my cards. I hope no one laughs too hard ! Looks like Michigan has earned a rain-free day, I will set aside the ark building and attempt to upload some cards ** looks around for helpful hints** Wish me luck!

Welcome to Splitcoast! Don't be embarassed! I'm sure your cards are great - I think we all feel like beginners

Let me know if I can help you with anything and check out my links for some good things to start you off. We're having our Virtual Stamp Night this weekend, which is some online challenges you can use to make your cards. It's really fun

Welcome LovetheBaruu! We were all beginners at one time on this site. As time goes on you'll see how your style changes and you'll find everyone so supportive. There's always lots of inspiration on here and like Lydia mentioned, the challenges are a great place to start. Enjoy your time here and I look forward to seeing your cards!

Welcome to Splitcoast! We're glad you're here and look forward to having you join in.

Although I have been participating on Splitcoast for years I haven't started a gallery but I get lots of ideas from what has been posted. I also find some great deals on things people are willing to part with in the Buy Sell area.

Again....Welcome!

Hello, I am from Michigan as well. Small town called Ionia. I to am new to splitcoast heard about it from a friend. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if it would be worth the investment to purchess the Big Shot or the Cuddle Bug. I have a Critcut and Love It. I am starting to make party favors to sell at our next church bazzar in the fall to help the church earn some extra money. If any one could tell me the difference between the 2 or if one is better than the other. Thank You and many Blessings

LOL! I suspected that was where I ended up! I don't want help for my new addiction, just to know that I am not alone is enough!

This site is addicting. However, it is a fun addiction. Only, very time consuming. Welcome from MN>
