Scrapbooking

I love to scrapbook, but haven't done a good job of it lately. I have so much "stuff" stored in tubs, bags and drawers. I'm sick of all the junk! I want to go digital.

I'm hoping some of you can help me with suggestions of software programs you use for your scrapbooking. I want something user friendly that gives me some layout options, but also allows me to create my own. I am also hoping to use this when I create the book I give to birth families that are considering us.

What do any of you scrappers use? Thanks!

I just got the Digital Scrapbook Artist 2 software. I haven't used it yet but I hear it's pretty user friendly. I'll have to let you know what I think of it!

I gave up on scrapbooking. Everytime I wanted to do a single page I had to get out EVERYTHING to decide what I wanted to do. It became more of a hassle then a fun hobby, which is a huge bummer.. :(

Photoshop elements is great for scrapbooking. Also I've heard the creative memories digital scrapbooking is very simple to use.

I'm a lurker, de-lurking. I use photoshop elements, and I think it's great. There's a bit of a learning curve, but I found that looking up video tutorials on youtube quickly got me to learn the basics, then I just went from there. I love digital scrapbooking now...cheaper, no mess, less time. Good luck!

I love scrapbooking, too! I just wrote a post about it, in fact. I'm an old-school scrapper, though. I like to put my hands on paper and photos and embellishments. I'm intrigued by digital scrapping but overwhelmed by it at the same time. Hope you get some good pointers. Good luck with it!

I used to scrapbook but I fell so far behind that it seems so overwhelming now! Good luck! I am your newest follower.
