When I scrapbook I do not have any one particular way I follow, except that I like for my layouts to look as much like traditional paper layouts as possible. So how do I do that?
2. Use a handwriting font rather than a typed font for the journaling. I love using all sorts of different varieties of fonts, but for journaling I usually use a font which looks like handwriting. I'm resarching how to create my own font of my own personal handwriting and will update once I find more out about this!
3. Use templates. Wow! When I first began digi scrapping I used a program which I bought for free from Amazon. It functioned, but I never could use any of the wonderful templates available. While I'm grateful for the experience I gained by creating my own layouts and learning what style I liked through trial and error I am in love with psd templates for Photoshop!!! I am scrapping incredibly quickly now. even I modifying the template some, having more than just an empty page to start off with has really stream-lined my efforts. This kit was created with a template and kit from British Designs.
5. Network! There are an incredible amount of forums and digital galleries out there. Some are themed for things like Disney World. Others are unique for designers. Some are wide open! My two personal favorites are Pixel Scrapper and Mouse Scrappers. Nearly every forum I've participated in has monthly or weekly challenges which often results in some pretty great digital prizes!

I'm partial to designers and kits which look like paper. Textures and layered papers are my favorites.
Do you scrapbook either traditionally or digitally? Tell me about it in the comments?
Do you have any questions about digital scrapbooking? I'm definitely not an expert on everything, but I love chatting about scrapbooking!
