digital scrapbooking 101...need help!

i just came across someone's digital scrapbook page...can someone please let me know what programs/software there are available, what i would need to start something like that? and everything is stored in your computer, right? and why digital scrapbooking, vs. the regular kind, where you can show others?

i am still a novice when it comes to scrapbooking...and as far as technology is concerned, i only know what i need to know to get what i need to do done, so i'm pretty "handicapped" in that area as well. but would appreciate any help in this matter, in the most basic lameman's terms would be good! thank you!!

There are several ways to scrap digitally. You can use software entirely designed for scrapping (CK has one called scrapbook designer plus) where you can just pop in your pictures to ready made layouts or you can make your own with premade items as well. Then you can also use programs like Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Picture It, etc. I use Photoshop and create my layout entirely myself.

They are very different methods. That's all. Digitally, you can print out your layouts (that's what I do) and place them in your scrapbook. I am doing my RCCL cruise entirelly in digital format. I've only done about 6 layouts but when I am done the album I will post them. I've also done some miscellaneous layouts which you can see HERE . I printed these out and they are hanging up in my SB room as decoration.

You can also just keep them digital and have them on a website where your family members from all over the world can look at them.

I also scrap traditionally. Which I still love doing.

I like the bulkiness and home made feeling of traditional scrapping but I really love the versatility I have in Photoshop for adding stuff and blending stuff together!

I sometimes use Photoshop to do something neat with my photos then print them out and put them in my sb layouts then sb it normally.

Either way, scrapping is fun fun fun!

I do both digital and paper scrapping. I use Picture It mainly. I have Digital Image Pro and Paint Shop Pro but I am slowly teaching myself to use those programs. Picture It is SIMPLE for beginners, so I highly recommend it as a starting point.

There are so many freebie kits out on the web right now that you could definitely get started playing around without spending a small fortunte (unlike paper scrapping!).

But I do still love paper scrapping too.

A couple more sites: www.shabbyprincess.com (great kits and they're free!) and www.digitalscrapbookplace.com (great freebies AND wonderful tutorials for beginners).

Here are a couple of my digital layouts:

Oh cool! I'm so glad I could intrigue you!

I'm new to this also, but I don't think I'll ever go back to traditional scrapbooking. I seem to be much better and faster at it digitally. For me the undo function is a life saver and I can do a page in a fraction of the time it would take me traditionally with no mess.

I'm planning on using MyPublisher.com to create the book instead of printing them myself once I have my album done. I've used MyPublisher.com in the past for photos and text, but this will be the first time using full bleed to edge pages and fully scrapped pages.

I also LOVE all the freebies out there. I haven't had to create my own or buy an embellishment or background yet. Which for me is VERY different from traditional scrapbooking where I have to buy EVERYTHING and then I never get around to using them. I know, it's a sickness...

I use Microsoft Digital Image Pro - I tried out Adobe Photoshop first but I was too impatient to learn a new environment. I'm so used to a Microsoft interface that I was instantly productive with Digital Image Pro. Although I have read that Photoshop is probably more powerful then Digital Image Pro, most things I've read on it say's it's not as easy to learn and use.

Here's my two latest layouts!





Happy scrappin' and I'd LOVE to see your layouts once you dive in!
