You may or may not be familiar with digital scrapbooking. Many traditional scrapbookers, like your mom, might consider digital scrapbooking cheating.
Your mom has probably given you a lot of wisdom over the years. What your mom never told you about digital scrapbooking is that it can be just as personalized as a traditional scrapbook page! You can even combine mediums to make digital scrapbook pages that incorporate real photos, keepsakes and scrapbooking embellishments.
Digital scrapbooking is a way to streamline the process. You might not always have your scrapbooking supplies on-hand, but you probably have your laptop. That means, you can work on your pages whenever and wherever it’s convenient for you. Plus, it’s a great way to find new inspiration and fresh ideas you might not have thought of otherwise.
