My New Obsession...

Want to see my new obsession?

OK... obsession is a strong word. But I am in LOVE with the new scrapbooking digital software from Creative Memories. I've always been a novice scapper, using materials from here and there. I've been scrapping books for each of the kids since they were born. However, unfortunately, I'm about 3 or 4 years behind. You know... you just get a little behind, then a little more, then it's way too overwhelming to even begin. That's where I'm at... (however, I did do a whole book on our Disney trip 2 years ago...)

So when I heard about this digital scrapbooking, I knew it was the answer for me! I have all the pictures from 3 years ago on as digital images. Press, click, save-presto! So I'm planning on working backwards with the pages. Here's what I accomplished during the Superbowl:
You can upload these pages to Costco and slip them into a 12 x 12 album. Super excited!!


I was doing a lot of hard thinking about how to change the year 2009 to 2010 for the Halloween page. Connor then came up with the briliant comment, "Uh, Mom, it WAS 2009." Yes, sometimes I'm not smarter than a second grader...

Great layouts!

Digiscrap is a very addicting thing! I've not used the Creative Memories software, since most of what I do is for online/blogs, etc., not printed...but I'll have to check it out! I could spend all day doing this stuff...

So did you have to buy the software and print the book out at home? Or is it online and it gets printed elsewhere?

You buy the software and can upload the pages to Costco. You can create books that upload to Creative Memories and they will mail you a bound hard or softcover book. Those are really neat, too. They have all different sizes and prices. Check out their website for more details. It's quick, easy and leaves no mess behind!

Lovely pages...I am a scrapbooker too, and until now have not been able to take the digital plunge, however maybe now I will! Regarding Connor's comment about Halloween 2009, should your fall page have said 2009 as well?

Lisa said...

HAHA! You are so right!! Seriously, I need a proof reader for me! Maybe I'll have to hire Connor.
So who's the smart cookie who noticed that??

Here is a clue...see if you can figure it out! I used to babysit your husband and I am also the daughter of one of your former teachers! Have fun and happy scrapping!!

Hmmm... guessing Michelle or Patty? Thanks for stopping by and writing!

You're right it is Patty. I check in with your blog every now and then, it's neat to see how your children are growing up...they are about the age Steve was when I babysat him and his siblings...yikes that makes me sound old. Keep up the wonderful scrapbooking it's a great way to keep the memories alive. Take Care for now.
