Scrappers Guide

October 11, 2007

In my introductory post I mentioned that my decision to get try digital scrapbooking was strongly influenced by Linda Sattgast’s beautiful work at Scrappers Guide. A couple of double page layouts she displayed that used photos as backgrounds really caught my eye, and I kept going back to look at them over and over.

The site is dedicated to scrapping with Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. Activity in the forum is about average. There are some very knowledgeable folks that hang out there who are happy to answer questions.

They offer a free weekly newsletter with tutorials and a monthly Premier membership. The Premier membership includes Linda’s excellent video tutorials, written instructions, and items necessary to complete the tutorials, and a complete digiscrap kit. The cost is $36 a year and is well worth the cost. Some of the past premier tutorials have covered topics like how to make lace, gradient maps, pins, grunge etc.

Linda’s training CD’s are excellent and definitely a good starting place for those new to digital scrapping. The web store doesn’t carry a lot of scrapping kits, mostly coordinated albums and training materials. They have some mini video tutorials available for a $1 each, that although not nearly as in depth as the Premier membership monthly videos, are still great training. So be sure to check out the bargain section as well!
