Glad to have you as part of the group!
Once you have Scrapbook MAX! installed, to download a template from the forums, select the topic that you want to download a template from. Now click on the link to the template file (it ends in .smt) in the "Attached Files" section. When your Web browser asks you what you want to do with the file, click the "Open" button (Internet Explorer or Opera browsers) or choose "Open with: Scrapbook MAX!" and click OK (Firefox browser). Once the file has downloaded you should see a message that tells you that the template has been successfully installed. It will now be available the next time that you create a new project or page.
Scrapbook MAX! 2.0 is here!. It's simply better digital scrapbooking software!
