Wow, same problem here...not sure I wanna take the leap to digital. I love the embellishments, textures and layers. I am a CTMH consultant and we are premiering a new way to digi-scrapbook. I'm really excited cuz you don't need to buy any software and the quality of print is amazing. I may just do both, because all of the softwares layouts are matching to the paper we offer - so I can embellish the digi-layouts if I want and it will all match with my already done non-digi layouts. Best of both worlds I guess. Check out my progress with the whole deal at bethivanic.myctmh.com.

I love digi scrapping but also still do traditional. I had my first baby in Nov and by the end of the month had a digital book done and ordered 17 for my family's Christmas gifts. Creative Memories offers a lot of free templates, pre-designed pages and almost daily freebies. For more info check out my website. www.mycmsite.com/micheleblair

I mainly do digital scrapbooking, though I was once a very dedicated traditional scrapbooker. The advantages are many. I use the premier online digital scrapbooking site provided by Heritage Makers. The end product quality beats everything else I've seen or tried. Basic memberships are totally free and allow you to upload up a 1GB of photos, use hundreds of templates or start from scratch, use thousands of pieces of digital artwork and papers and work on unlimited projects. They also have a premier level membership where you can essentially "own" your own personal digital scrapbooking store ~ for about $9 per month, upload unlimited photos, use any of the over 45,000 (and growing) pieces of artwork and the thousands of templates, and more. Your creativity is not limited in any way. Photos and projects are archived and may be modified and reprinted or whatever you desire. It's worth checking out the free membership...www.IncredibleStorybooks.com. There's absolutely no risk and you'll find it's quite fun.
I offer free workshops ~ both in person and virtual over the web, as well as just answer questions and help people out, so reach out if you have questions or want more information. Happy New Year, Ladies!

I do both, too ... but find digital much easier these days with a toddler running around! But would you believe that my 2.5 year old son LOVES to use my punches, etc? He's now the one making our Christmas and thank you cards ... with supervision! :)

I do both Traditional and digital scrapbooking. I'm finding that one my favorite things about digital is how portable it is with my laptop and being a busy mom, there's no clean up involved. Creative Memories offers many free templates, pre-designed pages and almost daily freebies. check out my website. www.mycmsite.com/isabelasoto
I love digital scrapbooking. The best part is the flexibility and speed in cropping and resizing photos to fit your layout. I've been using Photoshop Elements for several years. I print all of my layouts at Costco on a 12 x 18 sheet (it costs the same as a 12 x 12) - I get a 12 x 12 and 2 - 6 x 6s for the grandmas.
