Welcome to SG!
Just wanted to let you know that Jacqui is in Australia, so her wake/sleep schedule might be opposite yours (presuming you're in the Northern Hemisphere!). She and I have emailed a good bit, and I always have to remember that when I'm getting up, she's about to hit the hay!

The digiDoer products are about helping to overcome obstacles that can keep us from becoming a Doer of our ideas. For me that started with what to do with all my son’s creations as I wanted to be able to keep them all. I will start answering your questions by explaining more about the eBook as it is the guide to the process and will incorporate the products as I go.
The eBook is a PDF file that you can open on an e-reader, computer, or you may prefer to print a copy and follow along that way. It caters for those with little or no digital scrapbooking skills while taking you through the steps in creating an ‘organizational lifestyle’ that allows you to do larger projects, with tips and tricks that I have learnt along the way to save you time.
In the eBook you are taken through the four steps of:
Organizing - This includes both your computer files, creating a folder structure that suits your workflow and storage of supplies, and sorting the physical items that will be converted to digital files.
Converting - I help to minimize the time it could take you to convert (scan and photograph) and edit your physical items ready for creating.
Creating - If you are familiar with digital scrapbooking, can jump straight in. For those who are not familiar I have included a set of digiSkills, step by step instructions on the basic skills for creating your layouts/pages. The digiDoer products, digiGrids (templates) and collections, were designed to mix and match, to help speed up the process for a project such as creating an annual of your child’s school year.
Sharing - What to do with the layouts that you have created, digitally or physically, may include having a bound book made at one of the many companies offering this service (I would suggest you check with your manufacturer prior to starting so you are creating pages to their specifications), and printing the pages to insert into 8.5x11 or 12x12 plastic sleeves to create your own album.
Also included in the eBook is a section with tips about using your supplies, how they work together, and a digiSteps: Quick Reference Guide of the process to act as a prompt throughout your project.
If you already have a set of favorite templates and scrapbooking products you can certainly use those. It really depends on what your project is as to what products will suit.
I hope this has helped with your questions, of course I welcome anymore that you may have. Happy Scrapping!

In addition to what Jacqui said, her system consists of templates and what she calls "cards" that have been presized to match the templates. She has also color coded the templates to designate what supplies fit in which sections. As she said, any supplies can be made to work with the system, but she has definitely sped up the process for us.
