If you don't know how to run the basics of your program, be sure to use the tutorial or have the instruction manual handy while you create your digital page layout.

You are almost finished. Next, add some embellishments to the page. You can do this by using the embellishment files in your specialty digital scrapbook software or downloading digital scrapbooking graphics from another source and dragging and dropping the embellishments on to your page.
