Okay, but here's one from January:
Vera Lim - If OnlyKate Hadfield- Doodled Black Alpha, Heavy Duty StaplesGina Miller - Off Beat Alpha, Boardy LeavesNatalie Braxton - Fluffy Puffy RibbonsRachel Young - Sequin SpillsMiriam Lima - A Quick NoteChristina Renee - Dream ElementsKimberly Giarrusso - Just the Basic Doodle, Seattle Grunge FrameEmily Merritt - Crumpled Accent PaperAmy Hutchinson - Courthouse Doodles
Better right? Well since I started I've learned a ton: how to make realistic shadows, enhance pictures, make things that perfect color, etc. etc.
7. When you're ready to start buying paper, elements, alphas etc.:
Vera Lim (If you like her style she has a grab bag for $2 and they are always good)
There are about a million more, but make sure their quality is good before you buy!
8. Printing your album.
I get my layouts printed through shutterfly.com. They will bind your pages together in a book, and you can even design the cover.
There are also tons of places to have your layouts printed. You can also do 8x8 pages and print them on your own printer!
Just a couple of random things. You have to give credit when you use someone's product. So anytime you post online, credit the designer of the paper or element. Also, don't steal (I know none of you would). Make sure you never give your friends copies of freebies or products by designers!
I'm sure I've missed something, but if you have any questions, please ask! I hope this helps.
