Instead of haphazardly Googling for tutorials and beginner’s tricks, check our our top 3 sites to explore and learn about digital scrapbooking. Each of these sites host fantastic step-by-step instructions on digital techniques. Don’t read them all now – just bookmark them for when you’re stuck or need some inspiration.

  2. Cottage Arts

A Note on GIMP – While these tutorials at Scrapbooks Gone Digital are not nearly as complete as the “best-of’ list above, what they do well is offer tips and tricks for digiscrapping with GIMP. Why use GIMP? Because it is 100% free. For new digital scrappers on a tight budget, combine GIMP and freebies for a free ticket to creativity and simple scrapping.
