Welcome to the wonderful world of Scrapbooking, LOL! You tube is a really good site to look for videos to get started scrapbooking. Finding a local cropper and/or Stampin UP scrapper or Creative Memories consultant might be helpful as well. You can go to any of there sites and find a local person that would be willing to help you get started.
I had always just gone away for 12 hr crops until a friend introduced me to weekend long crops that was all she wrote. Now, I'm gone 7 weekends a year scrapbooking and at least 1/2 of them our Thursday - Sunday. You learn so much when you go to local and away crops, too.
