I keep hearing about new scrapbooking things I never knew existed. I thought I would share a few here. Some are really nifty!

bigpicturescrapbooking.com (http://www.bigpicturescrapbooking.com/)

This site was an find. You create an account and buy scraping classes that you do in your own time. They have some intresting classes. They come with PDF downloads and workbooks and usually an adio stream too. The classes do cost between $10 -60 depending But I thought this was an neat idea! Wish I would have been on the creating end of this one. They are offering and free two classes. I thought I would try them.

Says there site. I have downloaded this Free program and its not bad. Dose not always do what I want but its helpfull if your not so good with filters and such. Best of all they offer free add on downloads! What an offer. Unfortunatly its only for photoshop users. That should get you all to convert :)

Another is Scrap Maps

A site totally dedicated to scraping layout designs. There not layerd templets but its an greate site for ideas! (No link cause the site was being funny today. hope its back up soon.

I also know there are several Digital scrapbooking radieo sites but the one I was going to include I forgot to save and cant seem to find :(. Maybe someone else can post some? Or anything else of intrest?

Well thats my show and tell. Anyone else?

OOHH!!! Cool nice links! Thanks for adding!
Anyone want to try the big picture free class with me after the ct events are over? It would be nice to have someone to do them with.

Found the streaming scraping show (radio) (anyway we can get an spell checker?)

Disk talk radio (http://disctalkradio.com/dnn/Login/tabid/75/Default.aspx)
Just rechecking it out now. It seems they have weekly shows about scraping you can download and listen too at any time. With all this fun scraping stuff ill have to quit my job just to do it all. Dh would love that.

Virtual Photographer will work with PSP as well and it is a useful tool for photo effects. Not as good as nik Color Efex Pro, but it's free!

allyou have to do to use them is to click on one and then right click on it to save it to your computer then open it in paint shop pro and use the magic wand to select a spot and then use the fill tool to fill it with what ever background you want or pattern and so on if there is the word text on the page use the eraser to erase it and add yopur own it is a great way to make pages the way you want them. thanks for that site.:wink:
