Hi there all, I am a 28 year old mum from Queensland, Australia. I have always been completly interested in scrapbooking but due to the amount of items you need to buy (eg, paper, embelishments, utensils...cutters etc) I have been putting it off due to money. I have barely looked into digital scrapbooking and never never realy considered doing it as I didnt think it was as nice, how wrong I was. I have been looking at your site and I think it is amazing.
I have two children (3 & 5) and every year on there birthdays I write a letter to them talking about 'them' and the year that they had including photos etc. i will continue to do this untill they get married then give it to them. I feel digital scrapbooking would be awsome for this. Plus my husband and I will be celebrating our 10th anniversay this year and wanted to make up an album of our life together so far, this would be great too.
I am very artsy and need an outlet!!
One thing is though, I am a little confused as to how it all works. The site seems a little confusing. Do I have to pay to join? Then pay extra to do the layouts, fonts etc?? How much is it and how easy is digital scrapbooking to do? Is it easier than traditional scrapbooking? Can I add letters etc? This looks amazing and also looks proffesional IMO.
I would truly love to get into it but have never done this before.
I would love to hear your feedback on this.
