Default Any Digital Scrapbookers out there?

What are your favorite products? Do you print your pages? Do you print books? Do you just enjoy them digitally?
I love the playful Serendipity flowers and colors, and they are now only available digitally... Have you seen them?http://paperwishes.com/products/4006897

What do you use? What do you love?

Linda, I've made 2 digital pages and they were years ago. One was using my printer's software and it was cute. The other was from a magazine website that let you design a magazine "cover" which I printed out. I ended up doing a layout using the cover as a large photo and the other page I'm not sure where it is.

I've always thought digi scrapping would look flat and one dimensional as mine above did. However, seeing Judy's pages my opinion is changing. I'm sure the products and software just get better and better.

I'm never going to say never, but I will continue to scrap on paper, I love the process and it gets me away from the computer.

None of this answered Linda's questions, someone else will have to help her. LOL

Default Digital Vs Traditional? What about Hybrid

I usually prefer to do a "hybrid" process. I often lay out my page digitally, but I like playing with paper and the added dimension layers give.

Usually, after I lay out my digital page and save it that way, I print parts of it by deleting the elements I don't want printed. For example, I might delete everything but the background if I don't like the paper I have available for the particular layout. (I've been known to take an aspect of a photo and zoom in on it - a piece of rock, or an animal's quills see example below of echidna layout- and use that to print my background paper - laying it out digitally ahead of time let's me see how well I like it before I waste ink printing a whole background paper.)



I also usually delete everything except the pictures and then print those. That lets me print just the size/crop I want. I do the same with the journaling.

Sometimes I print embellishments that I cut out and add to my page. Sometimes I print the title and cut it out - but usually I use my Silhoutte to cut my titles

The above picture is the digital mock-up as I don't usually take the time to photograph or scan my 12 x 12 pages. The finished page looks similar but with more depth.

I haven't dipped my toes into the digital scrapbooking world yet - probably will one of these days but really enjoy the hands-on paper scrapbooking process so much and don't have enough time to do that!

Don't think I will get into digital scrapbooking. Love the use of paper and have SO much of it that I need to use up (and keep on buying more ! Just got three more packages of paper).

I used to have a program from another company that had a lot going for it (the program), and I made several digital books, but couldn't really figure out the hybrid aspect. I decided that I really prefer the paper and scrap aspect of the craft. HOWEVER, having said that, there are some really wonderful things about digital scrapping - never running out of paper or stickers or alphabets, being able to size photos (and everything else) on the fly, and the absolute portability and ease of storage!!! Can't deny that! But my program is no longer supported, and I have a basement full of paper etc to scrap with.

Thanks for chatting along!
