I LOVE this program. If you're computer savvy and haven't invested a ton of money into scrapbooking then this is worth buying and getting into. Their tutorials on Youtube are pretty good. I'm able to scan in the few things I already have into my existing Photoshop Elements and create digikits of my own. There are also a ton of free kits online, and the ones for purchase are about 5 bucks! For that I get the same stuff I would have spent 30+ bucks on in the store, and my supplies NEVER run out!!!In the end, you can save a TON of money with this program.
The cost of printing 12x12 books can go from 30 to 70 bucks so save for that, printing 8x8 is about half that. Otherwise, it isn't much to pay to print print 12x12 pages (about a buck a page, discounts for larger orders) and put them into your existing scrapbook or one you bought cheap on sale...
Please note, if you do not already have a photo editor like Elements or Corel, you will want one. The program has a decent one so you can get started, but having something you can REALLY edit, tweak and enhance photos with is a major plus. So look at those programs as well.

I liked this program when I first purchased it. It is connected with daisytrail.com which offers additional digikits compatible with the software... Or so I thought. In truth the newer digikits being added to the site are NOT compatible with DSA2. This is NOT advertised on their site. I had to dig through the FAQ (after I tried everything else) to discover that three digikits that I purchased were NOT compatible with DSA2 and will only run on the company's other software, CraftArtist, which they claim is an upgrade from DSA2.

Yes, you can download/purchase other digikits and create your own; however, you should be aware that the newer kits (and they're nice) on daisytrail.com will not be available to you.

Other than that, I was having fun with the software.

So, if you just want a program to use with your existing embellishments, backgrounds, etc. you can enjoy this program. You can create your own.

My complaint is more about not knowing that I wouldn't be able to take advantage of the freebies on daisytrail.com or purchase the digikits I want (if I want to purchase rather than find freebies).

CraftArtist supposedly supports DSA2 scrapbooks and digikits and there should be a seamless transfer. The site offers a compact version for free. I just got it today so I have no clue if it's demo and only does a certain amount or not.

I wish I would have known about this before I purchased DSA2. Thankfully, the program wasn't super expensive. It's the principle.

I have a little trouble using this program. I continue to work with it. The embellishments and backgrounds are wonderful. There is a lot of extra perks on this program that enhance your scrapbook pages. I personally use these for card rather than scrap-booking.

Easy to use and the capabilities are amazing! I have done not only home scrapbook items, but my website and business cards for my non profit using this program. Very versatile and I highly recommend it. This is an affordable and user friendly program.

This version is no longer supported. The new version is Serif Craft Artist 2. I returned this and got the latest version. It has even more features. Serif Craft Artist 2 is easy to use and has lots of templates.

I feel kind of disappointed that what I thought would be a product that I could use turned into mostly what I didn't need. I'm not really sure if the program was misrepresented or if I just didn't do all the research necessary. All I wanted was something basic and simple, and this was everything except those things. Bet I'll know better next time!

I have purchased several Serif software products in the past and I like them. Since then, I have been constantly harassed by telephone sales. I can't believe how much they call. Currently, it is 2 times a day. If my wife answers, they don't even talk to her because they know it's my account and she has told them in the past to stop calling, so they hang up. They have assured me twice now that they have removed me from their list, but I still receive calls. For further information, search for "serif constant calls" and you will see a lot of complaints. The software is not worth the harassment.

Does not mention Amazon Download version includes Digikit Collection 1.
[For more info on Collection: [...]

Thus, for $1.99, a real bargain. Highly recommend even for CraftArtist owners. [If digikit opens in Digital Scrapbook Artist, will open in CraftArtist.]

5 digikits from software DSA + 10 more from Collection 1 = 15 digikits
