Trend alert! Earlier this week, we posted a review on SheFindsMom.com suggesting that busy parents ditch the “glitter or puffy paint” and use Blurb to make their baby book. Then today I stumbled across this article in the New York Times about how more and more scrapbookers are ditching the scissors and paper for the computer and printer. Clearly this is an idea whose time as come. Take mother Claudine Jackson. According to the article:
Three years ago, Ms. Jackson started creating layouts of her books on her computer. Now she produces almost all her scrapbooks digitally, printing the pages as photographs that are 8 inches by 8 inches or 12 inches by 12 inches. She also burns the scrapbooks on CD’s, for safekeeping or to share.
The advantages of going digital? Less mess and time, for starters. But why scrap the book along with the scraps when Blurb makes it easy to combine the best of both worlds? Use BookSmart to Autoflow those digital scrapbook pages, print, and voila — you’ve got a bookstore-quality, hardcover scrapbook that you can show off to all the other crafty gals.
