Digital Scrapbooking

So, I'm way way way behind on scrapbooking in the sense of putting pictures together to make cute photo books.  I think the last page did was for when Tank was born.  She's 6.  Where does the time go??!  Anyway, I'm thinking about digital scrapbooking as an alternative to get it actually done.  I found the shabby princess site that has a handful of free designs available to download and this is what I did today.

I think I could get into this.  :)  Any of you have any great sites you want to share for getting more templates?

Shutterfly is the one I always use to print. They have GREAT quality, let you store for forever (so if your house burns down you can use your insurance $$ to order new photo books), nice deals, and their customer service is hard to beat. I used to do my books on their site as well, but now I do it on my computer through a program I bought called Lumapix - Fotofusion, then I upload the pages to Shutterfly and order the books. You can google either of those words (lumapix/fotofusion) and it'll take you to their site where they have demo videos that explain the program. It's SUPER easy to use and I use it for just about everything now - printing certificates, birthday cards, soccer team memorabilia pages, and I just finished the school yearbook. It's the best! :)

I've been playing with this idea for years, but keep getting sucked into other activities that pull me away from playing on the computer. My kids are old enough to comment on the lack of pictures we have for them to look through. It's bad to tell them to go look on the computer ... they're all still there. Ha!

Yay, you're starting to scrapbook. I used to do it the old fashion way, but then Corrine got me addicted to digital and will never turn back. In fact, I don't think I have printed a picture in almost 7 years, as everything is on the computer and then printed in my digital scrapbooks, which end up in hard copy. Good luck!

Oh, I go through Heritage Makers and have been really happy with them. www.storybooker.com (Corrine's website through HM) It allows you access to all their paper, embellishments, etc... I peruse their templates that others have made and either copy it or do something similar, but to get ideas. I have been using them for 6 years now. I make just one BIG book a year and it has everything in it. I love going back and looking through them. Jack and Megan do now too.
