    These pages are amazing. It is exactly what I am looking to do - what do you suggest for a very creative first time digital scrapbooker?

    I would suggest the following:

    :visit mousescrappers for tutorials, challenges to earn freebies and support
    :subscribe to digital scrap blogs (monthly freebies sometimes weekly are posted on blogs and facebook)
    -some to start are (google these names) Scrappingwithliz, KellyBell, BritishDisigns (there are SOOO many I can't list them all here off the top of my head, but many blogs will have links to others :) )
    :Download if you don't have it, a free trial version of a graphics program, like Photoshop Elements, or gimp :)
    : Feel free to ask questions on how to get going. I for one love helping others get started, so pm me if you have any questions :)

    Help me then, Please!! I have spent days researching digital scrapbooking and have decided Photo Elements is the graphics program you want now I'm trying to figure out where to buy the scrap products and then how to print? How do you like to display your pages to print photobooks or pages and place them in Albums?

    Personally, I use persnickety prints to get prints of my 12x12 size pages. They have a sale usually twice a year and thats when I purchases. I submit my files online to them, and shipping is only $5.00 regardless of how many sheets I order. They are fantastic at what they do! :) I prefer getting individual 12x12 prints and then slide them into the sleeves in my album. I hope this answers your question, and if not, please ask again. As for scrap products, Start at Mousescrappers, under challenges. They have template challenges where you can pick up free templates to start. They have kit challenges, where you can pick up (download) a kit to use (ALL FREE) Do you have a facebook account? If so I'll pm you my links to the scrapping facebook sites where there are ALWAYS freebies to be found. My purchased kits, come from my favourite designers: British Designs, Kellybell Designs, JustSoScrappy, FranB Designs and a few more :) These people have blogs with freebies posted sometimes weekly, sometimes monthly. :)

    JustTJ, the more I read about printing the more confused I get, let me see if I'm understanding this right.
    -Sites like Shutterfly and Mixbook don't seem like they print your custom pages into books....for example if you make your own pages in Photoshop Elements and want a them bound into a book. Is that correct? Seems like you just design the book in their site and then print.
    -When you print your pages at Persnickety Prints what do you order? They have different finishes, what do you like?

    I've never (yet) ordered a BOUND book from anywhere. I like my 12x12 regular scrap albums with the clear sleaves. I order my pages just like you would a 4x6 print, only I order a 12x12 print. I prefer the Glossy finish :) Sites I've previously looked at for bound books, like costco ect.... generally they have their own books that you just upload your photos to, not the nicely scrap pages you make yourself. Persnickety may have an option to order your pages in a bound book, I've never investigated that yet. I like to buy my scrap albums from my trips and use those, they have a more sentimental value to it that I like. :)
