SOCIAL INTERACTION - Many scrapbookers like the idea of getting together with friends and having scrapbooking parties. There are even all night conventions held in convention halls with scrapbook suppliers available.
HANDS ON - Some scrapbookers like working with their hands, cutting and gluing their scrapbook pages together. Working together with family members can be a rewarding time spent with family or friends.
COSTS - Costs for conventional scrapbooking can run into the hundreds of dollars a year when you add up all the cost of supplies and tools needed.
SPACE - For conventional scrapbooking, you generally need a lot of space to spread things out and keep things organized. Many scrapbookers have a dedicated room in their house where they keep all the supplies needed. Some don't have that luxury, and have to bring out all their supplies and tools each time they want to work. Then they need to clean it all up again when they are done. All that work just getting ready and cleaning up after can take some of the fun out of scrapbooking
EASY TO LEARN- Using scissors and glue are things most of us learned as children. There really isn't a learning curve to conventional scrapbooking.
EASY TO SHARE - Digital scrapbook pages are easy to share with family and friends. Not only can multiple prints be made of each page, but the digital files can be e-mailed, copied or shared on facebook, instagram or other social media.
LOWER COST - The cost of digital files, downloaded from the internet can be a fraction of the cost of traditional scrapbooking supplies. Many backgrounds and embellishments can be created digitally, incurring no costs to you. Software costs are usually only incurred once, and many options have free trials so you can try them before you buy.
DOWNLOAD ONCE, USE MANY - With digital files, you can download them to your personal computer, and use them over and over, creating different looking scrapbook pages using the same digital files. Tutorials are available to help you learn how to modify the files, such as changing colors, so that the digital scrapbook pages truly become your own creations.
NO MESS, NO CLEANUP - With digital scrapbooking, all materials are contained on your personal computer. You don't need to have a room or a table dedicated to scrapbooking. You can scrapbook when you like, save the files and quit when needed. All at your convenience.
