    A big welcome to the Lily Pad. I never did paper scrapping, but I love to try and recreate it digitally. Please remember we all were new once, and we love to help. You ask any and all questions.

    @Jems Welcome to The Pad, Jemma! I've been a paper scrapper since 1997 and started getting interested in hybrid in 2013, though I was too type A to make a pure digital LO until last year...lol.

    This is the most welcoming and supportive community in digiland. If you have any questions about ANYTHING, always feel free to ask. You also got great advice from @keepscrappin about signing up for designer newsletters. I can't recommend that enough. We're so glad you found us!
