There is a lot of resources on the internet, but sometimes they are not as complete or they are not based on the latest version which makes them hard to follow. Sometimes you just can't find information on the specific tools or items that you need to use or worse, you missed out on using some great tools just because no body has written a tutorial or explain it on their blog. Because of that, I recommend that you just purchase a book. The electronic version are the most affordable, will increase your knowledge and will save your time. Time you can actually spend digital scrapbooking!
Amazon also has some great GIMP Books for a very reasonable prices:
My Favorite is this one:
GIMP - The Complete Guide
