Should I?

I own an insane amount of scrapbooking stuff. Especially for someone who hasn't scrapbooked in a year and a half. I keep going back and forth on giving up traditional scrapbooking and switching to digital. I think digital makes more sense for me. In the long run, it's definitely cheaper and a major bonus is that it takes up far less space. Our house is less than 1000 sq ft and even though we have a garage with lots of storage, I realize I have way more crafting stuff than is reasonable. I just can't seem to part with it though.

Even though I can't find the motivation to scrapbook photos anymore, I still really like making cards. When I redid my sewing space a few months ago, I lost my scrapbooking space in the garage and now all of my supplies are just shoved into boxes. I hauled out some of my junk today and made a few cards that I really like. And a huge mess that I hated cleaning up.

Any digital scrapbookers out there with feedback or opinions on making the switch? I know I'd like to keep some minimal supplies for making cards and definitely my Cricut. What are the best digital shops and how do you organize your computer files? And mostly importantly, Shanna, will you still be my friend if I convert? :)

I just started digi scrappin last month. Put it this way: i have an entire room devoted to scrapbooking, and in the psast 2 days i've boxed everything up,and i'm selling it at a sale this weekend! I'm keeping some stuff because I too, like to keep making cards. Once you start digital, you will wonder why you just now started!

LOL...I was wondering what you did with all your stuff. :o)

Those are great cards Kelci!! I miss seeing your cards and layouts.

CTMH has digital (aka online) scrapbooking. You don't have to buy any programs to run it. You just go to a Consultant's website and click on Studio J. You get to play around with it all for FREE. The only time you pay is when you decide to buy it. They print it and send it to you and store it for you online. If you have any questions or wanna check it out let me know.

Online is way easier and much less messy so I don't blame you...hehehe.

I so love digital scrapbooking! Craft time is so limited that I can't afford the time it takes to set up and clean up from reg scrapbooking - plus the fact that I never remember to get any pictures printed. My final argument for digital is that if you mess up the picture you just hit ctrl Z and start over! Sorry for the sudden rash of comments from me - I have been lurking for some time and finally now commented. :)
