Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday dear ScrapMatters,
Happy birthday to you!
August 8th marks ScrapMatters actual birthday, and we are so excited to be celebrating 5 years with you! Amber, the new owner of ScrapMatters, first became acquainted with the ScrapMatters community in October of 2008 after being invited by one of her digi friends to a speed scrap. It was her first experience with SM – and with speed scraps – and she’s gotta tell you, this slow scrapper about had a heart attack! Here is the result of that first endeavor:
And here is my page from the speed scrap she hosted last weekend:
Needless to say, her scrapping skills have improved over time (thankfully!) and the ScrapMatters community has also grown. With almost 6,000 forum members and a constantly growing gallery full of wonderful inspiration, there is always someone or something here to support and encourage you. That’s one of the things I love the most about ScrapMatters – the loving and supportive community, with people who are always eager to help and leave genuine and thoughtful comments on your pages.
To celebrate our 5th birthday, we wanted to give back, and in a big way. Check out these amazing sponsors and the prizes they’ve offered:
1-year membership – only available to a NEW member
