I enjoy scrapbooking, although I haven't had much time to work on anything in close to a year! I mainly love taking pictures!
Ever since I bought a new digital camera in February that takes great pictures and a storage card that can hold up to 4 GB of pictures, I have been taking TONS of pictures but haven't printed hardly any of them! I do post them on my blogs, and email them to people, but I haven't done much else with them.
I have been thinking lately about looking into the options for Digital Scrapbooking instead since my pictures are already on my computer, I am always on my computer, etc. I started looking around today for sites with instructions on how to get started, what software to use, etc. I have brand new Adobe Design Standard Creative Suite 3 -- which includes Adobe Photoshop. This is an excellent program to use for digital scrapbooking! I have been playing around with doing a page to learn how the Photoshop works and how making a digital page works! I found a tutorial and a free page kit to try out at: Free Digital Scrapbooking
I will post other links as I come across them for resources for digital scrapbooking.
Here is my first digital page. I even printed it out glossy photo paper I happened to have on hand and it turned out great! I set it up to be an 8.5" x 11" page so that I could easily print it myself if I wanted to. I have been wanting to purchase a wide-format printer (I found one reasonably priced recently) the past few months but just haven't been able to. I think I will now work on saving for it so I can print out the 12" x 12" pages I make!
There are also many sites now where you would be able to take your digital pages and print them out as book in various formats...which makes for a number of options for sharing your work with others if you are doing digital scrapbooking! You can even save all your pages as images (like I did below) and make them into a movie that could be put on a DVD to send to others! I am thinking that would make great Christmas gifts for friends and family!
