When it comes to scrapbooking and photo journaling, do you prefer old school scrapbooks or digital ones? Scrapbooking was always a fun project to do when I was younger, and I will admit to hosting scrapbooking parties with friends after school. I still treasure those thick ruffled books containing very old photos of my life, and often pull them out for a good laugh. If you were to ask me if I still do any type of scrapbooking I would say sure, but it’s all digital. There are so many wonderful things about making a digital photo book and weather you use software or go through an online vendor; there are numerous resources online to help you out in this endeavor.
Here are a few of my favorite links to help you get started.
The Shabby Shoppe is my favorite digital scrapbooking site featuring high quality, downloadable products for both digi and paper scrappers! They have a wonderful blog with lots of helpful tutorials using different versions of Photoshop.
Shabby Miss Jenn is another great digital scrapbooking site. Her papers and elements are adorable and she also has wonderful selection of tutorials and projects to teach.
The Sweet Shoppe is a great site with a talented staff of digital scrapbook designers who bring you the best digital scrapbook kits, elements, templates, fonts, alphabets, and freebies.
If you like the idea of going through an online vendor then Adorama, Shutterfly, Tinyprints, and Snapfish are all great sites to go through.
Need some DIY inspiration? Head on over to A Beautiful Mess and look at their Book Making Index. They have blog posts ranging from scrapbooking, photo art journaling, instant photo journals and mini albums.
