You'll know from my post a couple of days ago that I joined Hummie's world, mainly so I can learn how to scrap and design better, although I've since found out what a great community there is there). I've been doing digiscrap since 2008, yet there is still so much I don't know.
I signed up for two classes at Hummie's world, and spent a large part of yesterday working my way through the first few lessons of course 1, I got as far as lesson 6a yesterday and made another layout. Most of the techniques up to this point I knew, but there were a few bits I didn't.
