  • A note to first-timers

    There are a lot of people posting their "first attempts" lately- in other words, it's their first time showing off their work. For some, they seem a little nervous because, let's face it, layouts are creative and personal!

    I just wanted to say once again how much everyone here appreciates the sharing that goes on within this site. I am blown away by people's "first attempts". Part of it is that SBM is easy to use, yes. But everyone has their own creative touches and ideas. I have taken ("stolen"??) ideas from just about every layout I've seen. Maybe it's just a reminder of a great color scheme. Or maybe it's a new layering technique used on a page.

    Whatever it is, keep 'em comin', and please, don't be shy!!!

      Since I haven't a clue how to create useable templates or embellishments to share, I just love to CASE (copy and steal everything) everyone else's creations. Everyone - keep them coming. It's awesome.
