I've never used Word for digital scrapping, because I was already familiar with Photoshop before I started scrapping. So I'm not much help, sorry!

Bascially, you open a text box drawing space. Then you have to change the background by inserting the picture there. Then you can use text boxes to add additional things on top.
I guess my mind is a little weird-o because once I was able to see that, I was able to create layouts in it.
I think Word is an okay solution, but graphic solutions are better for digital scrapbooking. The neat thing about Word is that you can do a lot more graphic things than most people have any idea about. That's what the training is all about. GEtting you to know what is possible to do in word. PowerPoint is a much better solution than Word. It is really easy to layer things up in PowerPoint.
I'm working on that training course right now. And the cool thing about digitally scrapping in PowerPoint is that you can create slide shows that you can share with family members, on the web, etc. I'm going to teach how to do all of this.

CBScrappermommy: For my newsletter, I import my picture from file, right click and then under image properties I select 'behind text', and then use text boxes to put type over the images...
Obviously, though, Ro is right! For digital scrapping there are MUCH better programs out there than Word. Word may be good to use to 'get your feet wet' and see if the digital thing is for you...If it is, then it is time to move on to a bigger, better digital program.

I am a huge fan of PP because of its ability to make things move as well as stand still and look pretty. You can then package your PP e-book as a view only show and send it by email or on disc with a PP viewer so anyone can look at it, not just PP users
...it would be lovely to see special PP bells and whistles on sale in the boutique.I have Ro's Word videos, also the ones for PSP X and they are both brilliant and really easy to learn from.

The proportion of people that would use Powerpoint to create a slideshow is pretty small compared to all that want to learn Photoshop, so I don't foresee Ro dedicating time to this at this point.
