*Expired* Scrapbook without Breaking the Bank!

by Freebies4Mom on March 12, 2008 10:02 pm

Christina at Northern Cheapskate has got some resources and advice to share with you in her post “Scrapbooking without breaking the bank“. She writes about entering the digital scrapbooking world after her twins were born and learning that it is truly a more frugal form of scrapbooking. I have to admit that I have not broken into the digital scrapbooking world myself, but after reading Christina’s post I think I need to try it before investing in any more scrapbooking supplies! One point that she emphasizes that I never thought of before is that digital scrapbooking gives you more freedom. I really like the sound of that, and can’t wait to dive in! It makes so much sense now that I have gone digitial with my photos to also go digital with most of my scrapbooking.

Look for more posts about photos and scrapbooking as I focus on this area of crafting towards the end of Craft Week. And don’t miss Thursday’s giveaway of the book Top Titles and Tips Too by Crystal Dawn Perry – I’m sure that any scrapbooker would love to have this to use as a resource! Just visit me between 7 am and 9 pm on Thursday to enter this giveaway.

Thanks for the comment, Deb! You can still hold a book, you just need to print the pages yourself or send it to a website that will publish it in a book format. In the long run I hear digital is cheaper because the cost of getting your book published is less than all the supplies you would buy normally. So the main difference is that instead of working at a table with all your physical photos, paper, embellishments – you are working at the computer. That’s the part I’m not too keen on since I spend a lot of time at the computer already with my blog – for me it means more time at the computer and during my craft time I’d rather be away from it. But, I definitely want to try it out!

I have never digital scrapbooked although I’ve heard folks online talk about this. (I appreciate the link to Northern Cheapskate.) I’m sure it would be cheaper! However, I’m almost thinking I’d rather hold a scrapbook in my hands and sit in my corner chair and be able to peruse the memories rather than having to view something else on the computer. Just my initial thought. Although I probably could be persuaded to give it a try!

I certainly agree that digital scrapbooking is the way to go. I went digital a year and a half ago and haven’t looked back. Now I need to get rid of all the stuff I accumulated through the years (9 years paper scrapping can add up to a lot of stuff!). I love the fact that I can change the color of my digital images to match my papers and can use them over and over again. You can purchase kits but if you are strapped for money you can also find tons of freebies all over the internet and you can even learn to make items yourself. I learned a lot from Good luck.
