First off ..
To get started, browse around the gallery
and take a look at different peoples designs.
There is a special forum just for new digital scrapbookers
- Start with the 'sticky' threads in there, this will give you the info you need right away.
And check out the links in the Beginner Resources
Finally, please know that GDS is a wonderful, friendly community with digi scrappers of all ranges of ability. Never feel like a question is 'silly or stupid', as many of us have asked someone that very same question at some time, and many others may be wondering the very same thing as you. Please ask, because we want to help - we love having more people to hang out with here
