Step 3 - Unzipping your kit.

When your download has completed you may need to un-zip the file. To do this double click on the icon Free Digital Scrapbooking Shopping Cartand choose the Extract All or Extract To option. You can now choose the location to save your new kit. I would recommend creating a Digital Scrapbooking folder within your My Documents folder.

If you don't have an un-zipping program installed on your computer you can go to WinZip to download one.

Step 4 - Opening your kits.

To use your new kit you will first need to open up your photoediting software. Go to Edit mode. Then go to the File dropdown menu and choose Open. Then navigate to the location where you saved your kit and select the papers/embellishments you want to use.
