Let’s start at the beginning. Exactly what is scrapbooking? Scrapbooking is all about preserving memories. The history of scrapbooking started a long time ago. People have always collected keepsakes like pictures, but also news articles, letters, feathers, leafs, little pieces of paper, ribbons, bows and so many other things.
With scrapbooking you combine these elements in a creative way and design layouts which will provide a story with pictures and words. You make sure those special moments will always be remembered and can be re-lived by future generations.
There are some great advantages to digital scrapbooking over paper scrapbooking. One of the best things about digital scrapbooking is that it is really hard to mess up! Digital scrapbooking makes it easy to undo your errors and just start over again. That is where the magical ‘ctrl z’ key is for!
And you don’t have to be a computer guru to make digital layouts! Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Photoshop Elements are the most commonly used digital scrapbooking software. But if you are a beginner to scrapbooking and just want to try it out and don’t have much experience with or access to this kind of software, there are also some free programs out there. And of course you can always find great tutorials to help you learn a certain program or skill.
