Trying Out Digital Scrapbooking

I heard about this site on one of my Yahoo groups today. I've been playing around with it for a bit of time now & even though I've shared this story & photos before, I liked this set of pages so I did them again. I think it came out pretty cool & it took me all of about 15 minutes to put it all together. :-) I may just be hooked.......

  1. KEWL! I saw your comment on DeEtta's blog that you think you should stick with your original plan to get the CM software. I sure wouldn't want to sway you away from that especially considering *I* am a CM consultant. But, if budgets are an issue, Smilebox is MUCH more reasonably priced, imo. You don't have to buy any papers, embellishments, etc.... It's only $40 a year and you get access to everything and they have new 12x12 (and other sizes) albums every week. It wouldn't take long to spend the same $40 on paper/embellishments with other digital programs and then you'd need to buy another one...

    Anyway.. glad to see you tried it...

  2. Great job. I love it. I have a friend who does these slide shows daily on her blog - I just didn't know you could do scrapbook pages too. LOL

    I'm still debating if I want a more flexible software or the ease and speed of smilebox....I think I'll use smilebox until I have time to get creative or I'll bog down again....but I've already noted that there are several layouts where I wanted more journaling space or an extra picture or two....and if I understand correctly with some of these softwares you'd be able to "create" but then we are back to the learning curve. LOL

    I'm so indecisive. LOL

  3. LALALALALALALALA, I'm not listening, I can't hear you!

    Like I need another computer/photo thing to be addicted to, lol. I've successfully avoided the SHS thread, in fact, I didn't even realize it was about smilebox until I saw it here!

  4. I'm with you, Kristine. I've been faithfully trying to avoid scrapbooking. But making slideshows does look pretty nifty....

  5. Thanks for the slideshow, Lisa. I even had a go at my own!


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
