ETA-- I just noticed the typo in the title. I can spell, I'm just a horrible typist. haha


Okay, well I guess I'm moving to this board. Hopefully other new makers will post here as well. Also, maybe we could post pics so we can practice making sigs with each others pictures or something.


I'm Leah. I have had Photoshop CS2 since late November, I guess. SO far I have learned how to make somethings glitter, its kind of a crrapshoot. haha I can do pretty good cut outs, I think. I guess my biggest problem, besides not knowing a lot of tricks is my old monitor. Pictures look really dark to me so I can't really learn too much about fixing pictures up.


What else? I have 2 kids Kurt is 11 and knows more about PS than I do and Katie will be 2 at the end of March.


I'd post pics, but my camera broke a couple weeks ago and I can't afford a new one. It sucks!!

Hi Leah! I'm Liv, sahm to Abby who is almost a year old! I can hardly believe it. Last April I was looking for some nap time tips and found the PG board for me and loved the siggies! It made it so personal! I actually learned to make blinkies first and then moved on to siggies. I use Photoshop CS2. Whew..what a nice upgrade from 7.0. I think my favorite part is you can see what the font looks like in the drop down menu. I couldn't see that in 7.0 and it drove me nuts.


I love photography. I take anywhere from 500 -1000 pics of Abby and my cat, Cali a month! My husband bought me a Nikon D40 a week or so ago and I am having a blast learning to use it! I volunteer with an organization called Chemo Angels. It supports patients going through Chemo. So I have incorporated that into my photoshop. I make a lot of Thinking of You and Encouraging cards to send them. It's a lot of fun and a nice way to combine two joys!


I am looking forward to getting to know everyone in this new, smaller setting! But I am sure we won't be small long!

Hey! I'm Jen. I've had PS CS2 since the beginning of December, so I think we are in the same boat. I've learned a ton of stuff, but I still find myself looking at the ones on the sig show and feeling inadequate. :) They are wonderful over there. ....one day....
Anyway, I'm 31 and have two little girls...(as you can see in my sig) Daphne is almost 8 months old and Sarah is 8 years old. Daphne is demanding a bath right now, so I've got to go....nice to meet you all!!

I'm Nikki and I've been making siggys for a couple years now. I started out with PSP but have since learned PS which I mostly use. I lurk almost daily at Sig Show but haven't joined in the siggy making there. All the ladies are so good there! I do make siggys at the Creating Websites and Graphics board occasionally.

Hehe, Leah, we all make typos, but this one is too cute. Intorduce yourself! :)

I'm April, and I use photoshop CS. I started on Signature Showcase a little over 2.5 years ago and was using Paint Shop Pro then.

I love creating, and I've actually taken a huge step away from Signature Making and just started coming back. So I feel like a beginner again even though I've used photoshop constantly while gone. Something about that 450 pixel x 350 pixel box does it. Haha.
