    Yes that's correct Melanie. The welcome email you received from us has a link to download the welcome kit :)
    I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

    I just signed up too, and trying to navigate around and get acquainted. I saw the information about Wacom Tablet, can anyone tell me which one is the best to get? I noticed there are different sizes, 4x5 or 6x8 and maybe a word or two of how easy they are to work with. I do many of my own graphics and to plug them into a form to be able to use them on my scrapbook pages would be wonderful without having to deal with vector manipulation, would certainly make me happy. Finding this site most interesting, most knowledge friendly and a good place to talk about scrapbook pages. I just got my copy of Adobe Photo Elements and hope to start putting together my own pages. Any suggestions or advice most welcome. I will continue checking the Resources, Beginner section. Excited scapper!

  8. Can you use DIP9 while doing these LO's? I am really wanting to learn what you all are doing, but I don't have the suggested programs.

    I don't use it but I sure have heard of others using it so I don't see why not... remember too that there are 30 free trials so you can try out the programs before purchasing :)

  10. I currently have Paint Shop Pro but have been considering Photo Impact or Photo Shop. Thanks for these tips, I am gonna be busy reading. I make signature tags now and do paper & glue scrapkits but really want to start digital scrapbooking. I have been saying for over two years that I am going to learn...now I am gonna make myself do it.
