Scrapbooking history?

I don't have on really. When I was in high school & college I would occasionally put photos & memorabilia in those 'press & stick' photo albums. But that is it.

After DS1 was born I liked the idea of paper scrapping but it was too expensive & too messy & paper crafts have never been my thing. I did a page or 2 with a kit but it just felt like a hassle.

I've been using PSP since version 5 (2001 I believe) and occasionally doctored up photos for sigs on message boards but that was it. Last year online friends of mine started doing digiscrapping but they all used Photoshop or PSE and I was on PSP9 by then & didn't want to pay for or learn new software. I thought it was a software specific thing. Then one of them told me about DSP having tutorials. I joined there in August & have been scrapping ever since.

And aren't you glad you found DSP? I'd had PSP7 for a while and messed about with photos too - I never knew it could do so much... :o)

Yes, that paper scrapping can eat away at the family fortune--digital is much more cost-effective!

I can't believe how much money I have tied up in paper scrapping! Wow, has digital been better on my budget!

LOL. have a whole room devoted to paper scrapping but can't get in since the kids use it as a storage room.

I never could get into paper scrapbooking because of the mess and hassle. I love digiscrappin so much better!

I loved paper myself but digi is definitely heaps more affordable and easier to manage.. I thought you would have been digi-scrapping for much longer - I guess you're a fast learner!!
