|A little time,
a computer and an Internet connection is all you need to learn to
scrapbook. Teens to Baby Boomers are finding that computers are the
easiest and least expensive way to preserve the past and create new
memories at the same time. We’ve found free lessons, free software
and even free templates all in one site.
Spokane WA (PRWEB) June 3, 2006 –- You really can learn to scrapbook on a
computer for free. We’ve found free lessons, free software and even
free templates all in one site. Now, all you need is a little time,
a computer and an Internet connection.
ComputerScrapbookTraining.com, has taught thousands how to use their
home computers and printers to create scrapbook pages. Wes and
Kathy, owners of ComputerScrapbookTraining.com, report that they
average more than 2500 active users from around the world signed up
for the classes on any given day.
Learning to use the computer to create scrapbook pages is one of the
fastest growing areas in the scrapbook industry worldwide.
When asked what he attributed the growth and popularity of computers
for creating scrapbooks, Wes had this to say: “Computers offer some
significant advantages over the more traditional methods of
scrapbooking. Computers take up less space, there’s almost no
cleanup and you can start and stop on any schedule. Just hit the
save button and come back whenever you are ready.
In many foreign countries and rural areas, traditional scrapbook
supplies are limited or even nonexistent. With a computer and an
Internet connection, anything you need is just a download away. With
the price of gasoline at all time highs world wide, one less trip to
town is a significant cost savings.
But I think the biggest reason so many are turning to computers is
that it’s so much easier and takes so much less time to complete
each project. With the computer, it’s as simple as picking a
template, adding your digital images, a few lines of text
(journaling) and you’re done. No cutting, no gluing and no waiting”
Carol Weatherholt of Front Royal, VA says: “I was so excited to find
your website and take your digital scrapbooking class. I have been
trying this for some time but found that the learning curve in other
programs were just too much for me. I flew through your course like
a breeze - Thank you!”
ComputerScrapbookTraining.com takes the new student from a beginner,
who knows little about scrapbooking and guides them through a series
of self-paced well-illustrated lessons. New students start with
basic terminology, are guided through the download, install and
setup of free software and then eased into the process of digital
scrapbooking and intermediate page design techniques.
Wes even shows students a simple technique for changing the colors
in their clipart (small digital graphic art) to match their
scrapbook theme colors.
Students traverse through the course at their own pace using a
simple index, menu and navigation system. They can just learn how to
enhance their traditional hand scrapped pages with digital art and
titles or they can go on to create full pages complete with
backgrounds, frames, digital images and personal notes.
What the students all find is that with the new digital scrapbook
techniques, you can even combine them with the old traditional hand
methods of the past and have the best of both worlds. With digital,
it’s never an all or nothing proposition. Each scrapbooker is in
total control of how much or how little they use.
Mary Jo Diehl from Rochester, NY says “I'm getting ready to do my
first electronic scrapbook and wouldn't have had the courage to even
try without your help.”
In an industry estimated to sell between $3 and $7 billion of goods
by next year, it’s a pleasant surprise to find one company that’s
giving back to the consumer something of true value.

Wes and Kathy have created a totally free online course that teaches
new scrapbook students the basics of scrapbooking with computers. It
contains everything a new student will need to learn and to get
started on their first, all digital, scrapbook.
Digital scrapbooking offers some significant advantages over the old
traditional hand scrapped pages. It’s faster, simpler to do, takes
up less space and can save you a significant amount of money by
printing your own pages. It also saves both time and money in the
travel to and from the local traditional scrapbook store.
The course itself is for beginners and those just learning about
using the computer for scrapbook production. It takes the student
from basic terminology all the way through a few intermediate
computer scrapbook techniques. It’s totally online and self paced.
Once a new student signs up, they instantly gain full access to the
entire digital scrapbook course.
Scrapbooking is currently enjoyed by 1 in every 4 households in
America according to Creating Keepsakes magazine and the 2004
