  1. I just purchased your book from Amazon. I hope it mentions the type of software needed to make the book and that there is not a big learning curve.

    1. I'm so excited. There are two ways to make a digital scrapbook. First, you can use the design program from a company that you plan on using: Mixbook.com, PrestoPhoto.com, MyCanvas.com, Shutterfly.com, etc. The design programs have a shallow learning curve and the book will help you know what to put into your book.

      I now use Photoshope Elements. It does have a larger learning curve but there are so many great learning opportunities, including this site: http://www.mycorneronline.com/tutorial/class/c1/course1guideintro.html. That can help you out. And then again, the book will tell you what to put into your project.
