    I was just curious about who may be getting into digital scrapbooking? I use a program called My Memories Suite by Polaroid and really enjoy it. I am curious what other programs people may be using and how they are enjoying it. Also may be a great way to share ideas.
    My fishing page is unavailable all of a sudden... huh?

    I didn't even know this was possible. I never got into scrap booking, but this looks fun. I love that your not actually cutting pictures. Thanks for posting!

    I love your fishing photo page! I used to be very into scrapbooking. I have tons of scrap crap and bags of photos that I still need to 'scrap'. We had a few different programs and my ds has photoshop. I played with digital scrapping a long time ago little but just never got that into it but it looks like a lot of fun.
    Nowadays I'd probably scrap my chickens though LOL! Since my kids are older now, the only one who wants thier pic taken often is my daughter [​IMG]

    Do you just keep all your digital scrapping on your computer? Or do you print it off to keep in a book?

    I used to scrap book with my mother back when I could use her supplies which was... a while ago? Anyway, she tried to get me to into the digital, but it's just not my cup of tea. I love working with paper and I'm really not much of a PC person.
    Here's one I did at a digital scrap-booking party:

    MaggieRae, I am not a PC person either... I have Mac computers. The MMS program was one of the only programs that was compatible with a Mac as well as PC, aside from iscrap but it had mediocre reviews at best.
    For anyone who may be interested, a really good PC scrapbooking program is Digital scrapbook artist which I have read many good reviews about... it has many photoshop type elements to it but is more difficult to learn than the MMS.

    flgardengirl, I do print off my projects in as a book. I upload the files to Adorama.com which is based in NY and have them shipped. Adorama is very good quality and seamless spreads, which is perfect for scrapbooking. I even used the MMS program to do my wedding book which turned out amazing!

    I also do traditional scrapbooking, but more for cards and things now a days. I just couldn't get into having to set up all the photos and print them off the way I thought I would want them... then change my mind and need to print off MORE photos and constantly rearranging pages and cutting pictures. I felt like I wasted allot of photos and paper which just seemed SO wasteful. With digital, I can rearrange and crop anything as many times as I want without costing myself a cent! I can edit photos in photoshop and create really cool images and effects and use them in MMS. Plus, with 2 kids under the age of 3 I can't find the time to set up all my scrapbooking "stuff" and do a page or 2 the traditional way. Something would always happen and I would have to clean up everything right after I started. Digital... there is no clean up or set up. I sit down and do what I can and then... walk away! Its beautiful! Either way, scrapbooking is bunches of fun and very addictive.

    I really just fell in love with the program when I got it and they have plenty of online help, on facebook, and their website. There are many video tutorials that teach you the basics as well as pretty advanced things with the program... but it is just so simple to use. Within a few days I had all of the basics figured out and was well on my way with my sons First Year Baby Book! For the cost of the program... its totally worth it. But be for warned... they get you with the gift shop! They have so many kits and things to purchase afterwards and it can get pretty addictive. Regardless, I LOVE IT!!

    Happy Scrapping..... and chickens!

    Here are a few pages to show how versatile the program is.
    A few pages from my Wedding Album (the only thing done in photoshop is the crop out of me):

    I love digital scrapbooking! It is such a fun creative outlet for me. Here are some of my pages. It has been a long while since I've done it. I really need to start up again!!! Now that we are living out the joy of raising backyard chickens, we have lots and lots of pretty, cute and funny pictures of the chickens!
