I've made a few great projects that I learned in an online class with Jessica Sprague and Heidi Swapp. It was a lot of fun and I learned so much about digital scrapbooking! JessicaSprague.com offers a variety of digital classes, including some to help novices like me learn to use Photo Shop.
The quickest way that I've found to do digital scrapbooking is through a photo drop-in program called Studio J, by Close to My Heart.
If you enjoy doing hybrid scrapbooking, embellishments can be added afterwards!
