Do you want to begin a digital scrapbooking design business, but don’t know where to start? Maybe you are ready to build your hobby into a profitable business. This book will help you do that and more. It covers everything from setting up shop to advertising and marketing, from copyright law to taxes. There’s a little bit of everything, including homework!

Included is a grab bag of designer-use goodies from designers like Happy Scrap Girl, Studio Vivarant, Just Jaimee, Studio MissVivi, eqrAveziur, and Armia. You get over 130 MB of graphics, overlays, elements, styles, patterns and more. These tools can be a great starter kit for someone wanting to test the water. The grab bag is worth over $60 by itself!

It doesn’t stop there! You get $-off coupons from Anna Forrest Designs, Valentina’s Creations, Pretty In Green, That Girl, and special coupons from Quade Consulting and DigiScrapAddicts.

But there’s more! You’ll also get a $20 coupon to Wendyzine Scraps to pick up some designer resources. (Not valid on designer services, custom actions, grab bags or collabs.)

A unique one-time use coupon for Wendyzine Scraps and Anna Forrest Designs will be sent to your email address on file after you place your order.
