I love scrapbooking. I have made scrapbooks for all of my family members. I can spend hours creating works of art out of my most cherished photographs. For my art project, I decided to try to create a small scrapbook digitally. Usually my scrapbooks are around 50 pages, but since this process is new to me, I decided to keep it short. Scrapbooking is very expensive, (I usually spend around $300-400 in paper, stickers, etc. for each book) so the beauty of digital scrapbooking is that it is FREE!
I used a program called Scrapbook Flair. The web site has a free program that you can download. After I downloaded the program, it was pretty easy to figure out how to use. I am not a genius when it comes to computer technology, but the program was very user friendly. I had never done a digital scrapbook and I didn’t know where to start. A Google search produced many results, and Scrapbook Flair seemed to have the most options and was free. I highly recommend this program to either a beginner scrapbooker or for someone who has done it for years. You can easily correct mistakes, and since you are using a digital copy of the photograph, there is no chance in permanently damaging the picture. I might use the technology again in the future, but I am old-fashioned and I prefer scrapbooking using paper and scissors.
