I am biscraptual! Although, I do do far more digital than paper scrapping. When I paper scrap, I don't do much 12 x 12 - mainly paper bag albums, etc. I am also doing a 'bit of both' album for my friends baby for Christmas! I will do the basic LO digitally ie photos and papers, then add 'real' embellishments.

I'm primarily digital. I just never cared for my results paper scrapping. I will add a nice braid or ribbon here or there though. Just a little embellishment to make it more tactile.

Being biscraptual is just my thing. I love what I can acomplish in photoshop. I just dont have the same ease and ajustability in paper and glue. I like the layerd and textured feel of paper scraping though. To me its what scrapbooking is all about. I set up my lo and sometimes ill chose to print some elements I used. I place my main digital layer on an black 12x12 page (found that makes the los pop) And keep an eye out for embelishments that will fit. Its the perfect relationship for me. I see that few people do this though.

I have digiscrapped for a year and in the past 4 or 5 months i became bisccraptual! I love doing 8 x 8 layouts. Just a nice size for a beginner!! I also make my own cards for people with scrapping elements and papers!*biggrin

Verry cool Beany!! I bet your cards are beautifull!!

totally digital here. the selection in a b/m scrapbook store/aisle so overwhelms my feeble brain. and a messy "digital" desktop is much easier to clean up ; ))

Oh i'd love to paper scrap, but in Germany (dont' know about America) it's a very expensive hobby. *worried

10-28-2006, 12:01 PM
lol!!! no verry expensive here too. :)

In England, everything is more than double what it costs in Canada, so am thinking it is the same for America - thats why I like to print most of the papers, etc that I use for any paper scrapping that I do.

"Biscraptual" *laugh That's too funny!

I guess I would be that except that all my paper scrapping stuff is covered in dust along with a half down album that kinda got left when I started digi-scrapping. One of these days though I'm going to get back at it, finish my daughter's first year album and then make the total official switch to only this. I like the idea of combining a little of both thought, I had never thought of that!

I'm a digigirl myself and proud of it... nothing against the "bi's"... I just can't deal with the glue, scissors (geez I can't cut decent to save my life!) and the disorganized mess I have made trying... especially with my 4 year old in the vicinity, she doubles my mess!
