What an Amazing book! It's for everyone that keeps asking "When
will we have a book for digital scrapbooking?" This is THE digital

Tutorials, Page Kits, Templates, and Alphabets. That's not all either,
there are over 100 Fonts, Clip Art, free and shareware Plugins, and
Sample Layouts that were featured in the book. It is not program specific
and covers Digital Image Pro, Paint Shop Pro, Photo Impact, Photoshop
Elements, and Photo Plus.
I am also using "Digital Scrapbooking" as a reference book
and keep it on my desk. There is an index so it's easy to find whatever
you're looking for quickly. I only wish this book had been available
when I was struggling to learn how to digital scrap. Thank you Sally
and Lori for an awesome book! It's obvious that a lot of thought went
into this book to give digital scrappers exactly what they have been
An excellent resource for those looking for a step-by-step guide to
learning digital scrapping as well as advanced techniques for those
already doing it. I was so impressed with the easy and clarity of the
explanations. The full-color photos were a tremendous help. A must have
for those interested in digital scrapping!
This is a wonderful book about digital scrapbooking! They cover of course
the what and why, but most importantly they covered the how! Many books
gloss over how to do the scrapping or show very low quality pages that
wouldn't encourage readers to try it. But this book has it all. There's
meat, there's info, it's just a wonderful resource - perfect for those
who want a book they can hold and read that will really help them learn
the digital concepts. And along with all this information, there is
a CD full of goodies! The CD alone is worth more than the price of the
book! Whether you want to learn about digital scrapbooking, get better
at it, just want a CD packed with fonts, page kits, embellishments,
filters, etc, or all of the above, buy this book!
