  1. I played a little with scrapbooking when my daughter was born. It's really not my thing though. I like cardmaking and other paper crafts more. I prefer digiscrapping for a number of reasons. You get more bang for your dollar. It's easier to fix mistakes. You don't have to worry about your items fading. You also don't need to worry about embellishments falling off or having unreadable handwriting.

    Mainly to save $$!!! With the kiddles all grown-up (so to speak), no one was really around to look at the scrapbooks anymore and I love playing on the computer anyway. This was a no-brainer. I've scrapped since I was 13 and have over 2 dozen books ranging from 8x8, 8.5x11, 12x12, annuals, special events, memorials, honors. Now one of my BIG tasks is to SCAN all of those while trying to keep up with daily scrapping!

    I had to take over 2 years off from paper scrapping when my daughter was born and my son was a toddler - no way to scrap and clean up and still have time to create :) Second reason is I realized I'd have to scrap the same pictures more than once to get them in an album for each or scan it and print...had to be an easier way and I found it! No going back now!

  4. I went digital so I was not recreating the wheel! I have 5 kids and was making pages for 6 albums! I got so bored with the same pictures by about the fourth page lol.

    Now I can make a vacation page or whatever and print it multiple times.

    I hadn't made a book for each of my kids until I went digital. I can't imagine scrapbooking the same page for each of your 5 kids. That would get pretty expensive, having to get the same elements.

    I went digital by accident. I was part of a company that designed paper scrapbooking products, greeting cards, note cards, and other stationary items. I was asked to create cards and unusual papers for the company, and to launch their transparent overlays line. Since I was traveling A LOT (more than 50% of the time) I scanned or photographed items I would be using that week for my designs. I put them together digitally and sent them to the company digitally, but I didn't realize I was digital designing. LOL! So, my favorite site closed down, so I followed my friends to another site and they sold digital and paper scrapbooking kits. I started with a few items, and became a digital designer (before I had ever scrapped my first digi layout!) So, I became a digi scrapper because I was a designer! LOL! It's just like me to do everything backwards!

    What a fun story! So, when you sent your papers to them digitally, did they print them for their store?

    Yes, they had big printers that printed 12 x 12 papers. This was in 2001 or so... I don't think there were personal printers that printed 12 x 12 at that time.
