Traditional scrapbookers are discovering a whole new world through digital scrapbooking
West Jordan, UT. (PRWEB) July 28, 2008
Traditional scrapbooking has long been recognized as the art of archiving stories or legacies through journaling, printed media, and memorabilia. Using tools such as paper, scissors, stickers and adhesives, decorated pages are then preserved in keepsake albums. However, this traditional method is taking a back seat as more and more scrapbookers are turning to the cost-savings, convenience and sophistication of digital scrapbooking. Thanks to simple computer software, scrapbookers are learning how inexpensive and easy it is to create stunning digital scrapbook pages.
"Traditional scrapbookers are discovering a whole new world through digital scrapbooking," said Scrap Girls CEO, Rozanne Paxman. Scrap Girls, LLC is an Internet-based store that specializes in digital scrapbooking supplies, training and software. "Digital designs are similar to those of traditional scrapbooking in that both employ the same basic steps. The difference is that digital scrapbookers use image-editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop® or Microsoft® Digital Image Pro, to layer and position digital photos and embellishments. This allows users to experiment with different looks and designs without mess, commitment or waste of costly supplies."
Undoubtedly, cost savings is the most significant advantage of digital scrapbooks. Online materials are not affected by skyrocketing fuel prices, nor do scrapbookers have to use their car to purchase supplies; everything is available right at their fingertips.
"These are tough economic times and scrapbookers are finding it a great relief that they can still enjoy their favorite hobby without busting the family budget," Paxman said. "Materials can be reused over and over, thereby increasing the customer's return on investment."
Indeed, for less than the price of two gallons of gas, customers can purchase material sufficient for an unlimited supply of digital scrapbooks. Additional benefits include online archiving, greater diversity of materials, ease of editing, and the ability to immediately share finished pages through the Internet.
"Digital scrapbooking offers unlimited creative possibilities and has raised the art of scrapbooking to a whole new level," Paxman said. "The advent of user-friendly software makes it easy for even a novice to create stunning, inexpensive and professional-looking scrapbooks in digital form."
