Choosing the best digital scrapbooking kit is a different process for each person. Kits include a variety of digital elements, papers, alphabets, and templates. Each person finds his or her own use for each of the items within the digital scrapbooking kit. Some people go with a very basic digital scrapbooking page using only digital paper, a template, and photos. Other people put layer upon layer of detail into each page they create.

A variety of digital scrapbooking kits may be obtained for free from Web sites and blogs throughout the Internet. It might be a good idea for someone beginning digital scrapbooking to find a few of these kits and download them. Once downloaded, each of the items within the kit can be reviewed, and a digital scrapbooking page or pages can be made to see how the items are used. Many of the companies selling these kits offer free items on a weekly basis.

Following a given company or companies will allow the individual to collect a variety of digital products. Making pages using these complimentary products helps the individual to get a feel for how they use each of the items. After creating several digital pages, one gets an idea of which products one might use. At this point, it's time to go shopping for the digital scrapbooking kit that includes the products one uses the most in creating pages.

Usually, a digital scrapbooking kit is available at price lower than items would cost if purchased individually. If one signs up for a company’s monthly digital scrapbooking kit, it may become available at a lower price than if purchased on a standalone basis. Some companies sell kits that are theme based, such as for a given holiday or a baby. Other companies offer digital kits formulated for a specific color scheme.

Some kits may include a large group of products bundled together from many different graphic designers. Others may contain only digital brushes from a specific designer. As one spends time making digital scrapbooking pages, one learns more what will be used over and over again and those items which may only be placed on one page. This knowledge makes it easier for each person to determine where to spend funds on digital products. Many companies have sales on a regular basis, so it is a good idea to watch for sales prior to purchasing.
