Default Digital Scrapbooking?

I don't scrapbook but need to start as I have boxes of pictures. I don't have kids yet so that is a good thing.

Anyways, so I am over at 2 peas looking at layouts and stuff in the gallery. Ann so very much of it is all digital scrapbooking?

Is this a wave of the future?
How do you print them out and put them in books?
I don't get it.

Can someone give some insight?

Thanks

I am *very* new to this whole digi-scrap thing but am lovin it so far. You can make your pages 8x10 and can get them printed anywhere that you normally get pictures printed. (my favorite place is www.york.com cause they are the cheapest that I've found) but someone else here on SCS said that they get there pictures printed at www.scrapbookpictures.com . That site has many other print size options and can even print them out at 12x12. I am currently working on an 8x10 album (until I get the hang of things) and then I will probably just print them off of my computer and then store them in a binder with page protectors. I'm sure there are better ways, but that will work for me. HTH!

I think it is the wave of the future mainly due to the fact that most people use digital cameras now. I paper scrapped for 10 yrs and have recently gone over to digital scrapping. I like the fact that I can do all my cropping on the computer if I don't like something I did then I have an undo button & I don't waste anything and I love that I only have to buy stuff once and then can use them over & over as many times as I want (ie. background papers, brads, eyelets, tags, etc).

Some people print them and some make dvds in a slide show way. There are a ton of different place that can print them in any size you want. From 4x6 up to 12x12. You can also print them at home depending on what type of printer you have. I have always scrapped 12x12 and still do it that size digitally, but now I'm able to resize the layout when I'm finished with it and print it in 8x8 or 9x9 and it still looks great.

HTH

Default Digital scrapbooking bound and hardcovered

Hi Ladies!

I just became a consultant for a great comany called Heritage Makers. It is a great company that allows your to make hard covered, bound books with your digital pictrures. They also have introduced a new digital scrapbooking tool that would allow you to create your pages right on the website and then make a book that would be hardcovered and bound for you. The books really are amazing! These books make great gifts for just about everyone. While many other sites give you the opportunity to make books with pictures, Heritage Makers allows you to do make more of a storybook as well as being the ONLY site that allows you to do the digital scrapbooking AND have it published at a very low price. Check out the website: www.memories2books.com
