Hi Iona, I don’t have Scrapbooking as a hobby and like you make greetings cards for family and friends using PSP. My angle is via photography and wanted to be more creative. I have found that the techniques Carole teaches in the context of scrapbooking are applicable to any of the digital hobbies we each have. I started with the basic course and make copious notes. The key is practice and I am constantly amazed at the quality and ideas of many of the contributors in the group. You will enjoy it.
