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 to a CD or thumb drive 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.
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 don't need to bring out all your supplies to begin working, or clean everything up when you're finished. You can scrapbook when you like, save the files and quit when needed. All at your convenience.
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. With digital scrapbooking, files are sent to the "lab" or uploaded to the internet. The wait for the final pages can take several days.
SOFTWARE COSTS - Software used for digital scrapbooking can be expensive. Most of the software available can be purchased for between $40 and $120. Most can be downloaded from the internet, and most offer a trial period where you can try it out before you purchase.
