Very nice page, Copago! Looks very professional.
Well, I use Photoshop Elements, but there are quite a few others and everybody has a different opinion on what's the best, easiest, etc.
A lot of the digiscrapping sites have reviews and such. I like what I've got but I know I haven't even scratched the surface of what it can do.
I think that paper scrapbooking and digital are both very much the same and very different.
I am fairly adept at the electronic stuff but a klutz when it comes to working with actual objects. (Please don't give me a hot glue gun, I will look like I've been tortured when I'm finished.
) So in the technical sense they're very different, but the art/craft of it is just the same. So if you can get a handle on operating the program, you'll have no trouble since you already are adept at layouts.
As far as elements, I haven't created any myself, although I don't think it's too difficult with my program. But it's really a different sort of art. There are people who only make elements (and kits) and others who only scrap. There are a lot of nice kits outs there, and also a lot of great templates and simple pages you can just drop a photo in. (Which are nice for learning, by the way, since you're just manipulating the photo and not all the separate elements.)
As far as sites, there are a bunch of different ones I use but they're commercial sites so I don't think I can post them. (Correct?) I can pm them if you'd like. Most of them have lots of freebies so you don't have to buy anything if you don't want to, at least at first.
You know, I don't have anything on this computer as an example of stuff I've done. Except for this thing
but that's not really scrapbooking--that's a powerpoint background, only the text is a scrapping element.
Well, there's this one
and this one
that I did using a little program they have on Nickjr.com.
