Groups and forums _ Although not as organized and pretty_looking as standard websites, these forums contain a lot of information and useful downloads as shared by their members. Most of these information and downloads are only available for those who sign up, so joining a group or two will be very helpful indeed. Not only that, but the social aspects of these groups or forums allow you to communicate with other members. You can also choose to search for certain groups or members with similar interests as yours.
Going online to find free scrapbooking templates allows you to not only get all kinds of templates for your projects, but also read about more ideas, techniques, and tips about other scrapbooking topics. For your templates, these websites/forums can offer sets of complete templates for an entire page or album, or just a collection of themed designs to let you integrate them into your own layout.
