Hi everyone, I am very new here and I'm sorry to say that I'm slightly confused by all the abbreviations. Some of them I can work out by context - LO means layout, CM is Creative Memories. But what is PL? CHA? HL? (Hobby Lobby?)

I'm also very new at this type of forum. I can't figure out how to reply to a certain person's post. Can I change the font I'm using? And why, when I try to add color, does the word 'color' appear but it doesn't change the color of what I'm typing? How do you add signitures, photos and quotes?

Sorry to be such a Newbie!

First, welcome!

You may have better luck posting in the General Scrapping forum. This one (CHA) is dying down, since CHA (Craft & Hobby Assoc.) was last weekend. It's a trade show where company buyers go to see what new products are coming out in the next six months. We love it here, because Two Peas does challenges along with it and shows us lots of pretty, new stuff!

There is a Pea Dictionary that I can't link on my phone - hopefully someone will be able to do that for you. It's helpful with the acronyms (and there are a lot!).

HL = Hobby Lobby. PL = Project Life by Becky Higgins (also referred to here as BH).

Like I said, I post mainly from my phone, so can't help much with color. You can copy and paste someone's post and use the "quote" feature, but there's no easy way to directly reply to a post like I've seen elsewhere.

Any more questions, just ask!

Hi & Welcome! I did reply this morning, but must not have hit submit! so much for helping!
To print in a color, click on that color and type your text between the two sets of brackets.

Hi everyone, I am very new here and I'm sorry to say that I'm slightly confused by all the abbreviations.

To include a quote from a post above, copy the portion you want, click on quote and paste the quote between the two brackets.
Here's a link to the peadictionary:

To include a link in the post(very helpful!) You click on URL, put in the address(make sure to use only one http:/) and then you are asked to name the link.

Thank you both for the helpful information! I actually thought I WAS posting to the General Scrappin' page... Oh well, I'll learn!

Thanks again!

For your signature, go into your acct and under the Public Information tab will be the edit sig. Font? I don't think so, not sure though!
