Karen (ScrapGram), has given you some good advice. The how-to videos are the BEST way to learn. The newest class program is available in the Boutique: Learn Digital Scrapbooking Using Photoshop Elements. It includes everything needed to learn all about digital scrapbooking with Photoshop Elements, and includes 61 videos, step-by-step written manuals, two digital scrapbooking kits, templates, graphics, and other goodies. Some actions, styles, and brushes are also included.
The classes were created with PSE 12, but also apply to PSE 11 and earlier. I have PSE 11 and the videos were very easy to follow. There are not a lot of differences between PSE 11 and PSE 12. Also, as Karen mentioned, we have a lot of great sales. If you are seriously interested in learning PSE, the class is well worth the cost. HTH
