A HUGE Freebie for NHSC attendees & Scrapvillians

To those who are visiting Scrapville because they attended the New Hampshire Scrapbook Convention in Manchester and visited with Sally Beecham to learn about digital scrapbooking -- welcome and I invite you to join Scrapville by going to the bottom of the blog (look for the Yahoogroups logo) to receive lots of freebies and coupons, discounts and special deals from Glenda Ketcham. Make sure you go through the blog and grab the freebies that are still available.

To current Scrapvillians, thanks for visiting yet again!

As a reward to the attendees of the convention (and to Scrapvillians because we really, really like you!), click here and here to download Glenda Ketcham's Free Beginner's Quick Page Kit -- shown above (make sure you click both places because the 8 pages are divided into to different files). Included in this download on the TOU is a coupon for 30% off order of Glenda's kits at Digitals, good through 2/29/08.

Because we know those who visited with Sally at the convention are new to digiscrapping, I am going to go over a few digiscrapping terms.

1. TOU (Terms of Use) -- every kit, quick page, etc. should have a TOU somewhere in the download. This is an agreement between you, the purchaser, and the designer. By downloading the digital file, you agree to all points in the TOU. Digital files are for personal use only, unless it is marked and sold as a commercial use file. You can not share digital files you have purchased or downloaded as a freebie with anyone. You may direct others to a link so that they can download the file and agree to the Designer's TOU. Just because you received something free, doesn't mean that you can give/share it with others. That is copyright infringement.

2. Gallery -- a place at a digital scrapbooking website where you post your LOs. Click here for my gallery at Digitals.

3. LO (Layout) -- after creating a layout, you can go to digital scrapbooking site. I recommend Digitals at where you can post your LO for others to view. You can view layouts by others to get ideas, and it is fun to show off your beautiful children, cats, dogs, horses, boyfriends, etc. You can leave comments on others' LOs, as well as receive comments on your work.

4. Digital Scrapping Websites -- there are many out there, but like I said, I recommend Digitals. The owners are very helpful, I have always found members to be helpful and positive. In order to make a purchase, you will have to join the site, but that just means having a user name and password. You won't be bombarded with emails unless you want to be on the site's mailing list (you will then receive notice of sales, freebies, contests, etc.) Most digitals scrapping site do require you to get a username/password to do anything other than just browse.

5. Forum -- at first, I found this a very confusing place. It is a place on a digital scrapping site where you can browse or ask questions based on a particular topic. For example, I loaded the new Adobe Photoshop Elements, but had a question. I can get on the forum, find a category where my question will fit and ask away. Usually, someone will respond within a day or two. The responder could be the owner of the site, a designer, or a member. It is a great place to get and give great information. This is where you will find out about monthly contests where the prizes are always great digital elements.

If you have a question, never be afraid to contact the designer or the store owner via email or through a private message or through the forum. Designers are just women sitting at their computer in their bathrobe like everybody else. If they can help you with a question, then they can probably count on you as a loyal customer. So, in reality, they are indebted to you. :)

If you have questions that I can help you with, feel free to email me at

Here is another freebie for you Scrapvillians. This frame cluster comes from Glenda's Twinkle Belle kit from her The Most Wonderful Place on Earth. My family is getting ready to travel to Florida, and we will be stopping for two days at a place known for their princesses, fairies and large rodents, then off to Anna Maria for, hopefully, sunny, 89-degree days.
The LO is one-half of a two-page spread -- the other page is my older daughter Sydney dressed as Jasmine. If you would like to view both pages, here is a link to them @ my Digitals gallery. I hope you enjoy this frame "fairy, fairy much!"

Sorry the blog hasn't been that exciting lately. I am cold. I have been cold since November. I am wearing a heavy coat right now as I am typing. I have never before hated the cold weather as I have this year. I have been counting down Spring Break since Thanksgiving. Just looking at Spring Break pictures warms me up (see above). The only good thing about cold weather is the possibility of school delays and no school. Maybe sledding, but then you have to actually go out into the cold...35 days until Spring Break.
On the subject of Spring Break, I highly recommend Anna Maria Island, Florida. We found a great house -- way cleaner than my own house, beautifully decorated, and it is less than a 100 steps from the beach. Been going to AMI for two years, this will be the second time we stay at this particular house. In two years, we have had only one day of rain, and temps are 78-92.
Stay warm, and bundle up. I hope to come out of hibernation around March.
