Wow, I can't believe SgD is turning 2!! I still see it like a little baby though, a baby that has changed so much since it was born. We have gone thru so many updates, upgrades, troubleshootings, new looks and not to mention Designers and CTs! But it has been so exciting and I am so proud of it.
Our Forum now has more than 600 members, that have place more than 2,943 posts and at some point we had 135 of them visiting us at the same time!
Our Gallery now has 1,562 scrapbook layouts with more than 1,713 comments that have been view 701,175 times! Wow! We now has two Club Membership with more than one 1000 Digital Scrapbook Elements each, a Layout Gallery displaying layouts using only club membership products and new monthly items.
This year we also introduced our First Scrapbooks gone Digital! DVD. The DVD contains The GIMP Program, Video Tutorials, Step by Step Tutorials, Complete Kits, Quick Pages, Templates and so much more !!
And all of these would not have been possible without the help of a very special SgD Team Member: Tanya. She has stay-put with SgD since the beginning, posting her challenges and prizes month after month. Thank You Tanya!
I also want to thank Donna Phillips, for her dedication to SgD as a designer and for allowing SgD to offer her Donna Club Membership exclusively at SgD. Is a pleasure to work with both of them. But just like a two year old baby, SgD has a lot more to grow and has so many changes in its near future. In order to reward our newsletter subscribers and to encourage new newsletter subscribers, we are going to change our Free Kit GIFT with a newer, much more exciting full kit. This fun kit will be deliver with each new newsletter subscriber confirmation and also available for download within the weekly newsletter. We will also remove the Free Product Samples from our Free Product Sample category and make the download links available directly from the newsletters. We are currently outgrowing our hosting mother and we are also planning to move to a bigger hosting house. The move is big, since the entire site has to be migrated, but the benefits will last for a long long time. We will be upgrading within the same company, since they have proven to be so reliable but the new server will have so much more storage room. Which means that we might be inviting one or two new designers and our Club Memberships will include more products!
For the upcoming year, The GIMP Tutorials will focus on more challenging layout techniques. The goal is to add at least six new GIMP Digital Scrapbooking Tutorials. So, if you have a suggestion, this is the time to post them in our GIMP Forum.
But this is not it, if you have a suggestion and prefer to email me directly, please feel free to do so at: firstname.lastname@example.org
In the mean while, enjoy the celebration and don't forget to download all of the presents at the end of the newsletter:
