Is there anyone out there that uses Gimp?????

I downloaded Gimp as i'm using serif digital scrapbook artist at the mo and find it REALLY basic, It loaded fab after downloading but now refuses to load past the fonts bit, HELP!!!!!

I'm still new to digi scraping but really love it and want to be able to try using templates etc but can't get them to work on serif loved gimp when i actually got to use it.
