Hi to All! I started scrapbooking in my my spare time just as a little hobby. I enjoy it and the finished project is such a reward. The scrapbook pages I've done consit of going to the craft store getting the paper stickers, cut outs etc. Getting page the way I want then applying selected photos.



I am not experienced by any means, just recently started. I must be living under a rock, I did not know digital scrapbooking even existed.



I have looked at many of the photos some of the members have posted of their pieces and am blown away.



I would really like to start doing this for my pictures. Where do I begain? I haven't a clue.

I assume I need to purchase software but what kind? Does this software create these beautiful works of art?



I really would love to get advice and tips from anyone willing to offer it.



Thank you, in advance.

I use Photoshop to edit my photos, then I use Scrapblog.com It's really awesome. It has everything you could want to use (backgrounds, stickers, frames, etc), and it's FREE!! Unless you want to use the designer stickers, then I don't know how much those are, but I've stuck to the free stuff, and there's plenty to choose from! And you can also print off your scrapbook when you're done. OR you can just make cards or invitations and email or print those too.

don't want to sound like a broken record but Creative Memories has the best software and you can download a version of it as well as tons of content for free. visit my website at www.mycmsite.com/lmunson. I started as a digital scrapper and turned into a consultant and am making a couple of hundred dollars on the side. good luck and have fun. if you have any questions drop me a note.

I highly recommend Photoshop Elements.  However, I don't use their Organizer.  I downloaded a free viewer program called FastStone Viewer from c/net and I love it.

Welcome to the world of digiscrapping, it is so much fun and in my opinion so much more inexpensive than the "old fashioned way" which I did for about 12 years.  



I am using Photoshop Elements, it is so much fun and there is a wealth of information online to help you do so many interesting things.  I have done my daughters whole 2nd year and my son's first 6 months on PSE, I have found so many gorgeous and perfect embellishments online for free.  I create my own pages and layouts.  I save my pages til I a good sale and print them out for a $1 a page, or when one of the sites has a bound book sale (I did winkflash last year, a 100 page bound 12x12  book for $60 . . . that's 60 cents a page).   



You can give PSE a try for a month for free at adobe.com.  It's very versatile, I've done invitations, announcements and thank you notes with it also.  As well as editing my photos and printing out collages to frame.

I am a personal publishing consultant with Heritage Makers for four years now and there system allows me to Digital Scrapbook, save my work until i am ready and then they put it in a hard bound book for me. The web-site is all online and there is no softwhere. Also they add Art to their site every month, store your photos for you as well as send out greeting cards. It is Amazing. I would love to show you the system to see if it works for you.

have been into digital scrapbooking for about 5 years now. It used to be so hard to do. Not many choices, except to become very educated in Photoshop. I went that route and created my own stuff from scratch, but I was getting swallowed up in the time it took me just to create one page (much like paper scrappin). I have been blessed with Heritage Makers for all my digital needs (scrapbook pages, books, cards, etc). Not only do I do ALL of my scrapbooking through them, I have recently made the decision to transition from hobbyist to a personal publishing consultant so I can earn a paycheck while I scrap. :-) www.personalpublishingconsultant.com Toni :-)



Heritage Makers is online based, so no sucking up your computer's hard drive with software. You can store your photos and projects. There are lots of great FREE templates with the free account and more templates available with a premium account. This is a state-of-the-art system that cannot be matched! It's complete drag 'n drop! You can use templates OR create from scratch! I can become your personal publishing consultant and help you with every step.

I have been digiscrapping for a year now and I will never go back to paper. I scrap using PhotoShop Elements. I started out on something like 2.0 or 3.0 and I recently upgraded to 7.0 and I love it! There are lots of digiscrapping tutorials on the web--I use scrapgirls.com the most as my resource. Welcome to the world of digiscrapping. You're going to love it!

I use Creative Memories Storybook software.  You can make actual bound books or print pages to slide into their albums.  My mom sells the products so I purchased mine through her.  Creative Memories has a website where you could look up information on the software.  It is great!!  Have fun!
