I personally love making scrapbooks. It helps to store family or personal memories in one place. The newest way I started creating, was with an online scrapbook. This way is great because it saves you money in the long run since you don’t have to go out and buy any physical materials. All you have to do is sign up to a site, and everything is there at your fingertips! Of course you can purchase extra’s that aren’t included, but even then, it is extremely cheap and affordable.
The ultimate online scrapbook maker that I personally recommend can be researched at www.scrapbookingwithus.com. I have been using My Memories Suite software for quite some time now and I find it extremely easy to learn, easy to do, and I feel very satisfied with the outcome of my book. By no means am I a professional scrapbooking, heck I just started making them a couple years ago; when I realized all my treasured pictures are sitting around in a box collecting dust. I had some time on my hands, so decided to put them all together in a nice looking album. One thing led to another, and before I even realized it, I was scrapbooking!
But since our World has turned into a technological World, most of my newest pictures are found on my digital camera, then onto my computer. I never really got around to printing them off to have the physical copies to look through, instead, I found myself sitting at my computer for hours going through all my pictures. Sure it’s great to quickly skim through picture after picture after picture, but I found myself thinking that the pictures just aren’t doing the experience I had any justice. That’s when I started to look into making because picture pages, but doing it online.
Below is a video that explains what digital scrapbooking is, and how you can get started! Beware though, I don’t use any of their recommended softwares, as I found some that are much easier and straightforward to use (like My Memories Suite software for one example). But this clip can get you the understanding you need.
The benefits to making an online scrapbook are endless. First and foremost, the mess to clean up is non-existent! No scraps, no glue stuck to the table, no ribbons tied around my ankle! Another benefit is that if you don’t finish it in your first sitting, you don’t have to put everything away, you just save it, and come back to it when you’re ready to start again. Everything you previously did will be there as soon as you come back. No set up time, nothing! Another great thing about online scrapbooks is that if you make a mistake, you can fix it! That’s not necessarily the case for physical books.
So there you have it! Hope this gives you a little bit of a curiosity and gets you out searching in the internet World to find a scrapbook site that you love!
