Scrapbooking and Cardmaking 101 - Newbie

After winning a fantastic professional photography shoot package from a blog post, I had a nice stash of fabulous photos. As such I have finally given scrapbooking a try and became obsessed right away. I met with a friend who gave me a ton of advice, tips, tricks and motivation.

I have already spent more than I care to admit (I plead the 5th) but on the flipside will be trying to get my money's worth. I did invest in a Cricut (beginner version), a few inexpensive cartridges, and purchased or pilfered out of my craft stash paper, glue, glitter, brads, stickers, embellishments, ribbon and card stock. Here is a sampling of what I have done so far:

I hope to get better as I go along but feel that I am off to a good start. I am also looking forward to following some scrapbooking, card making and paper craft blogs for lessons, ideas, inspiration, tips and resources.

If you have any good blogs or blog posts, resources/supplies, tips, etc. please feel free to share!!!
