my reviews and links for free software, kits, classes, tutorials, and templates
Free Digital Scrapbooking Stuff – I've been amazed at all the great free digital stuff out there for us scrapbookers! Let me give you a bit of background. If you just want to skip on to the goodies, scroll down for lots of links. I've been a scrapbooker for a long time now and have a background in design so I LOVE this stuff. I just recently started getting into the digital world of scrapping and I have been so excited about all the free stuff. Lord willing, I'll be continuing this journey (and not forgetting the paper scrapping as well) so if you want to join me and see what other great free stuff I come across, you can come along via my blog or subscribe to The Real Life Scrapbooker's Resource – my monthly e-zine filled with free, fresh layouts and ideas. Thanks for hanging out here...hope you love all this free stuff!

Free Digital Scrapbooking Stuff – Software and Online Class – I created the video below for my YouTube channel subscribers. As I was researching one of this other pages here at free-scrapbooking-ideas-and-videos.com, I came across a site called TwoPeasInABucket and found a free digital scrapbook class. How cool is that?! I watched the videos for the first month and they were enough for me to create my first layout. ( You'll find it about halfway down the page ). The instructor for the class (in her notes) also mentioned a free software program that is similar to Photoshop. I have Elements which I used for my first layout but the instructor for this class offered help to anyone who wants to use GIMP (the FREE software) and is also taking her class.

Free Digital Scrapbooking Stuff – Kits – I originally found these sites when researching another similar topic so I'll refer you to
those links and reviews.
(towards the bottom of the page) Some of them offer other freebies
besides just kits but I thought you might like those as well.
Free Digital Scrapbooking Stuff – Tutorials – There are two main places I would recommend to look for videos.
For Beginners – Take the class at TwoPeas ....I created my first digital layout with just the videos from January!
Ali Edwards has some good tutorials on her blog. You can look at her Scrapbooking With Your Computer or Hybrid/Digital Scrapbooking links under the Project heading or her Digital Scrapbooking link under her Categories heading. I love her as a scrapbooker.
More Advanced – Check out Jessica Sprague's tutorials ...I am definitely going to checking these out as I have time! You'll probably find me talking about them on my blog. YouTube – there are hundreds of video tutorials on youtube...just type in digital scrapbooking tutorials
Free Digital Scrapbooking Stuff – Templates – Every week the designers over at PencilLines.com showcase a new sketch and show you quite a few layouts for that sketch and at the very end of each post they give you a link to a free digital template to go with the same sketch. They post a new sketch each Sunday. Watch my video and find out more. I created it before I started delving into the digital world.
Update - PencilLines.com is no longer being updated. But you can still access all the sketches and layouts.
