A great site for ideas...

A lot of people have emailed me who are wanted to get started with learning how to do digital scrapbooking, and what program should they have, and how to actually make elements. I refer everyone to the same place, because it's the website where I went when I was first starting out. So I just thought I would post this link. It gives different tutorials based on different programs, and I think it's just a great source to at least get some ideas. So click below and start playing!

Oh, and to answer one more question, I personally use Adobe Photoshop CS2. And one more thing: Two different people have told me that if you have children who are in school, then you can get a student discount on Photoshop. I haven't looked into it too much, so I don't know how to figure out how to do it (if someone does, then reply to this post and tell the rest of us), but I know you can save a HUGE amount of money on Photoshop this way when you purchase from Adobe's website.

To answer another question that was just left in the post by April, she wondered where I recommend going to print 12x12 pages. I personally use Costco. They cost $2.99 for a 12x12 print. Also, don't choose the "glossy" option because it dirties easily with fingerprints. I always choose "lustre."
