One of the most satisfying things about running Scraps of Mind and Step by Step Digital Scrapbook is that I get to help people to surprise and amaze themselves at what they can do.
Marilyn, from Georgia in the US, is a perfect example of this.
Marilyn has been a paper scrapbooker for the past two years and then she decided that she wanted to branch out and try digital scrapbooking on her computer. But as you can see below Marilyn found herself with a few challenges in getting herself up to speed with digital scrapbooking.
When I first started I created all my pages by hand cutting and pasting every piece, as you know this took hours just to do one scrapbook page. Then I began to start working with my computer to do all the pages, but I wanted to learn more. I invested many dollars into on line lessons that were so advanced that I could not understand what they were trying to teach me.
So she was pretty frustrated by the time she arrived at my Step by Step Digital Scrapbook site, following a recommendation from some of the people in the scrapbooking groups she belongs to.
She describes the course here:
The levels advance from lesson to lesson starting with Beginners, Intermediate, then to Advance. Each section has several lessons teaching different and new ways to do projects. I have really enjoyed and understood each new thing that Karen is teaching. Thank you Karen for each and every new lesson and video.
As well as the glowing words, Marilyn also sent me copies of some of her layouts which she has submitted into the challenges run by her scrapbooking groups. I think you’ll agree she’s done a great job with these.

In just a couple of short months Marilyn has gone from Zero to Hero as a Digital Scrapbooker. And I am seriously chuffed to have helped her to get there.
For those of you who are wanting to create super layouts like Marilyn’s but maybe think that you’re not computer savvy or technical enough to do it why not try out my first Beginners Tutorial which will guide you to making your very first digital scrapbook layout.
You’ll fall off your chair in amazement at what you can do. And once you pick yourself back up off the floor You can either move on to the rest of the Beginners Tutorials or you can get the full Soup to Nuts Tutorial Package which comes with discount and a bonus Techniques Sheet. And I’ll deduct the cost of the Beginners Tutorials you’ve already purchased.
So now you can become a digital scrapbooker the easy and no risk way.
