Hi cookieredd, welcome to the forums,
I'm not a designer so I can't help much. But I think you'll find that many of the same "print" basics apply to web design as well. i.e. the aesthetics are the same, but the terminology can be a bit different.
IMHO the major difference is that print is "hard" 2 dimensional while web dimensions and colors depend on what is being used to view the page.
