Scrap Girls allows you to join up their newsletter, and will email you when they have free digital scrapbooking elements, tutorials, articles and more. On average, they give out almost 400 free downloads a year - more than one download a day. This is fantastic for people who enjoy continually working on their projects.
Computer Scrapbook offers some of the most fantastic free digital scrapbooking elements in small kits you can download. I absolutely adore these ones, as they have an extremely high quality but still remain completely free. My personal favorite sets in this are “California Cool” and “Wanderlust.” Both have a very modern, messy feel which is great for younger scrapbookers like myself. But don’t worry, Computer Scrapbook has a ton of traditional and minimalistic scrapbook elements for those who are into the “less is more” feel.
