Beginner Help for Digital Scrapbooking and Photoshop Elements

Are you frustrated with Photoshop Elements and lost on where to start?

I get questions all the time from scrapbookers on where to feel free to keep those questions coming and I will update you on new tutorials very soon!

1. Take a class or at least buy a book written for scrapbookers
There are several classes at online sites such as Big Picture Scrapbooking (watch for Renee Pearson to offer classes), Scrapgirls, and Digital Scrapbook Place. I recommend the books by Renee and also Patty's book that I reviewed recently.

2. Learn the basics from tutorials posted on this blog

3. More info for beginners via EDS Tutorials

4. Ask questions - the best places to get immediate answers to your questions, which we all had when we were beginners - is to go to a message board and get help.

Try these communities:
Scrapbook Dimensions Magazine forum
2. Scrapgirls forum
3. Digishoptalk forum
4. Photoshop Elements forum at
