Memory Keeping through Digital Scrapbooking
One of the things I love about memory keeping is that there are so many ways to document the pictures and stories of our lives. While I love traditional scrapbooking, I have also found that digital scrapbooking has a lot of advantages.
- With digital, once you buy a kit or element you can use it as many times as you would like and it will never run out.
- You can make a quick project without pulling out all of your physical supplies.
- You can make a “messy” layout without actually making a mess.
- Use as many layers as you want without adding bulk to your pages or albums.
- Print your pages individually or make a photobook.
- Start with templates and just add photos or make a page completely from scratch.
I have dabbled in digital scrapbooking for years and enjoy the process as it is very different from starting with paper supplies. Here are a couple of examples of pages I have made for my scrapbooks:
I have just recently realized all of the other projects digital supplies allow you to do as well. Now I use my software program & supplies constantly for graphics for this website and my social media pages. If you are like me & have trouble with Photoshop, there are several user friendly options for digital software specific to scrapbooking. The one I use is FOREVER Artisan.
In addition to the software, you will need supplies to work with. Just like with traditional scrapbooking, there are unlimited options for papers & embellishments; ribbons, flowers & buttons. The list is endless. One of the best places I have found to get these supplies is a website called Pixel Scrapper. They have several designers and SO many digital scrapbooking kits to choose from. The best part is you can sign up for a monthly subscription and get unlimited downloads per month or you can get a free account and still be able to download up to 5 single elements per day.
Pixel Scrapper also has a wonderful community board with chats, challenges and freebies. There is a gallery filled with inspiration as well as a section full of tutorials on how to use the supplies or even make your own.
