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.
Group Websites _ Several sites provide free scrapbooking templates for their group. Members can create scrapbooks reflecting their group experience. Using these free scrapbooking templates gives you an opportunity to meet others with your interests and helps you build relationships with other group members through your scrapbooking project. You can compare each others' work and get new ideas.
