I’ve been taking a class on digital scrapbooking with Photoshop at www.jessicasprague.com and it has been very definitely worth the price. Each week we do layouts following very clear video tutorials, using products that she supplies to us in download-ready form. I haven’t deviated from her concepts much at all, other than tweaking colors to match my photos. And I’ve been SO pleased with what I’ve learned so far. Here are a bunch of layouts I’ve done since this class started. Click to make them larger.
(Using downloads from the class, plus a brush set from Designer Digitals)
(Using ASO Ultimate Grunge Brushes and ASO Art Deco Stitching Brush, both from ScrapGirls)
(Using a Freebie set from Sweet Shoppe Designs, and downloads from the class, and BHA Not Guilty embellishments from ScrapGirls)

(Using downloads from the class. Quotation around the circle reads: “Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as of a father to a daughter. In love to our wives there is desire; to our sons, ambition; but to our daughters there is something which there are no words to express. ~Joseph Addison” and Journaling reads: “Sometimes the two of you are startlingly alike. Sometimes you are very very different. But what I know for sure is that you adore each other. And I love to watch you interact.”)

I’m totally loving this.
