Digital Layouts-Downloadable Lessons

(I created this layout by following Cassie Jone's Laying It All Out No. 14 Tutorial Kit )

I'm often asked how to digital scrap. I could try to explain it all, but Cassie Jones has done such a better job at it with her tutorial kits. If you use Photoshop Elements or Photoshop, her tutorials are a valuable resource. So why buy when there are a ton of free how-to's to be found on the web?

1. It is convenient and time-saving to not have to do a web search to find a certain technique.

2. The tutorials are a full kit. It includes all the digital elements needed to create a full layout using whatever technique you want to learn.

3. The lessons are so thorough! Cassie explains things well and includes step-by-step screen shots to walk you through the lesson. The lesson that I used to create the layout in this post was over 50 pages long! That might sound overwhelming--but it wasn't. It was full of screen-shots, tips, and instructions broken down into easy-to-read sections. The lesson was very easy to follow along.

4. If you get stuck, you can easily contact her on the message boards and she is so willing to help.
Here are a couple of my favorite:
