Default A Newbie hello and some help shopping



I wanted to say hello, my name is Noel. It's like the Christmas Noel! I'm a mom of two wonderful children and married to a great guy! I'm an avid photographer, gardener, artist and reader.

I've been paper scrapbooking forever it seems like, and my cousin got me hooked on digital scrapbooking a little while back. I've been getting by with freebies mostly, but really wanted to start finding nicer things

So that's my hello! I transferred some money into my paypal account and it should be there today, hopefully! And I am going to make my first purchase. I am wanting a wedding kit, a gardening kit and a cowboy kit, if I can get some help or suggestions?

Welcome to SSD! There are so many great things in the shoppe, I have no doubt you'll have fun shopping.

I'd recommend this gardening kit by Kristin Cronin-Barrow, and it's even on sale! (Image is linked to the shoppe)



Have fun!

Welcome to SSD! So glad to have you here!

If you go into the shoppe...down on the left hand side (towards the bottom) is a search box.

In that box, you can input the 'kind' of kit you're looking for, and it will pull up all the examples from the store.

Here are some for COWBOY

Here are some for WEDDING

Here are some for GARDEN

Hi Noel - this place is very addictive, so be warned

I thought I'd just add a couple more suggestions for kits to consider:



...and there's complementing wordart here.

...plus you could try some templates or doodle embelishments!








Darcy's right though - the search facility is very good. Just scroll down the page and enter your key word, et voila!

Welcome! I am semi-new, too, so I know how overwhelming it is! The others have suggested some fabulous kits for you to check out.

These aren't related to your themes that you're looking for, but as someone who was new, I had a hard time figuring out what the different designer styles were, and wanted to kind of "get to know" their work a little better. I decided to buy the Quarterly Bundle. It's $3.99 and has a mini kit from each designer, as well as a font and a template! It really gave me a good example of each designer, and gave me a large selection of colour schemes and themes to play with. So even though it's not what you're looking for theme-wise, I thought I'd suggest it. It helped make the site feel less overwhelming for me! Plus, all of the money from the quarterlies helps go towards site maintenance.

Welcome again, and you'll get used to all the choices quick enough! It's very addicting here, as others have said! It's nice to see a new face! And your name is lovely.

Hi Noel!
What I would have suggested has already been offered.
The designers here really do a fantasic job of keeping plenty of eye candy in the shop and the gallery is an awesome resource for inspiration.
Hope to see popping about the boards.
Balinda

This is a fab suggestion!!! If this tempts you, then also take a peek at the Simply Sweet Magazines too as they all include a huge kit from different combos of the designers.
