Digital Scrapbook – Disney 2010
I usually prefer handmade scrapbooks over digital scrapbooks because of my philosophy of scrapbooking that relies heavily on the inclusion of ephemera. However, there are occasions when creating a digital scrapbook is best. For me, this is usually when I want to create multiple copies for sharing with friends and family. I usually also create a handmade version to keep at home as well, but a digital scrapbook is a wonderful gift to give to the loved ones who shared an experience with you. In October of 2010 I was able to take my son and parents on a week long trip to Disney World. This was an unexpected trip as I was attending a conference and we decided to go last minute. My son and I had gone to Disney World in 2008 and I had created 2 full scrapbooks of that experience, and I did not want to create a new set of Disney albums for this trip. So I opted to create a digital album and print an extra copy to give to my parents. I am not going to share all the pages here, but just show you the cover and an inside page so that you can get some idea of the capabilities of digital scrapbooking. Now – I did create some pages from this vacation, but inserted them in the general 2010 album as part of that.
This scrapbook was made using Blurb.com and I was able to create it in about 3 hours. I like that you can print a full color cover with this album and fully manipulate designs and picture placement.
