Why You Should Try Digital Scrapbooking

If you have been doing traditional scrapbooking then you probably love it.  You take things you love and create a beautiful piece of art that are filled with memories that you can treasure forever.  You can express your creativity, while connecting with the people and places that mean something to you.  What’s not to love?  Now you have an additional option, here are some reasons why you should try digital scrapbooking.  You may find that you enjoy it more than you think.

Digital Scrapbook Advantages

Like many people who do traditional scrapbooking you probably already use a digital camera to take and print your photographs.  You probably also store them on your computer, you have them on hand when you want to work on your digital scrapbook.  You can learn to use photo editing programs like Photoshop to make creative and fun pages for your digital scrapbook.  Anything you need is available at the click of a mouse rather than heading out to the craft store.

Experiment and Play Around with Your Scrapbook

One of the coolest aspects of having a digital scrapbook is your ability to play around with your pictures and effects.  Don’t like something, then delete and try again.  It really is as simple as that.  You can use and re-use your images as much as you want in any way that you want.  You don’t have to worry about messing up your photos.  No matter what you do to your image, whether you crop it or resize it or add effects, you have the ability to undo all of it and change it to something else.

Sharing Your Scrapbook

Sharing your scrapbook is super easy with a digital format, you just don’t have that option when it comes to traditional scrapbooking.  You can print multiple copies of your scrapbook that you can give to friends and families so you can both share the memories within.  You can change the size of the scrapbook to bigger or smaller as you see fit.  You can take your digital scrapbook to a professional printer and make your own book.  Pages of your scrapbook are effectively digital images and you can share them the same way as you would any other image.  Post them on your Facebook page or send them to friends.

Digital scrapbooking doesn’t have to replace the traditional scrapbooking that you already love, but it does all you to share your memories and creativity with friends and family far away.
