Elisa's Ramblings

My mind is constantly running…this is my way of organizing my thoughts!

Digital Scrapbooking

I use the Creative Memories Storybook Plus 3.0 software to create all my pages.  I love how flexible it is.  There is a free version from Creative Memories called Storybook Creator 3.0, which includes a variety of pre-designed pages so you can simply drag and drop your pictures into the preset frames.  Hundreds of page layouts, colors, themes, etc.

But if you find yourself wishing one of your pictures could be a different size, or more to the left, or wish you could change an element on the page….then you should really upgrade to the Storybook Creator PLUS 3.0.

You can start out with a pre-designed template, then change the background, remove or add elements, slide your photographs around the page, change photo mats, change photo shapes, you can make any change you want!

And for ultimate flexibility you can build your page from scratch- starting with a blank white 12×12 page just like you would in traditional scrapbooking.

You can print your pages at home, upload them to Costco for individual page printing, or if you want a professionally printed and bound hard-cover book, just upload the finished product to Creative Memories and you’ll have an amazing scrapbook designed to last decades beyond what your traditional scrapbook will last.

Creative Memories offers the software for a reasonable price- and you can use it for everything!  Custom calendars, party invitations, Christmas newsletters, scrapbooking, photo collages and more

Every couple months they release new digital papers and embellishments that you can use over and over again.   Seasonal themes, holiday themes, sports and school themes, vacation themes, even Disney packages.  They also offer FREEBIES on their website!

There’s a fabulous Project Center website where you can get tips-and-tricks, more free content, and learn all kinds of ways to make the experience even more creative.

Anyway, enough of my sales pitch.  I am a Creative Memories Consultant, so I have to get my pitch in when I can, right?  Here’s a link for more information on the Creative Memories Storybooks.

  1. I love digital scrapping! I haven’t done it in a while due to the fact that I need to transfer tons of pictures from my old computer. I still desire the paper and scissors tho”)
