Want to try out digital scrapping? You need a tutorial guide. This free digital scrapbooking mini-guide will bring you into the colorful world of digital scrapbooking where possibilities are wide and endless.
Digital scrapping can be very fun and highly addictive. I know because I’ve switched from traditional scrapbooking to digital scrapping in mid-2007.
Don’t get me wrong, I still love traditional scrapbooking, nothing beats feeling the textures of papers and embellishments. Traditional scrapbooking is what got me interested in scrapbooking in the first place.
But space constraint took away my desire to scrapbook in 2007. I’ve given up my craft table to house my new computer.
From then onwards, I jumped onto the digital scrapping bandwagon. It opened up a new way for me to continue scrapping and to keep recording my favorite memories.
For beginners, getting started on digital scrapbooking can seem like a daunting task at first… Don’t we all feel like lost birds at times, especially when all we know is of sending emails and reading blog posts?
So easy and step-by-step tutorials are what we need to get started on the right digiscrapping path. I’ve compiled a short but very useful list under this free digital scrapbooking guide, to some of the best Internet sites where you can get your hands on many excellent digital scrapbooking tutorials for free.
First off, to start digi-scrapping, you’ll need an image editing software or scrapbooking program like Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Paintshop Pro, Digital Image Pro, Photo Impact, etc.
But don’t go running to look for tutorials for your specific image editing program. They can be confusing as many of these online tutorials aren’t prepared specially for digital scrapbookers.
