Digital Kit Scrapbooking – Where To Begin

 

Digital Kit Scrapbooking

In the past, scrapbooking materials usually consisted of pre-designed layouts that you could purchase from the store and put together yourself or your own designs that you could create out of paper at home. Now, however, when you use a digital kit, scrapbooking can take on a whole new dimension. When you utilize digital layouts that are available in page sets and paper packs, you can have a ton of designs right at your fingertips.

One of the best things about using a digital kit in scrapbooking is that it’s very easy to keep the designs and layouts organized. You can literally have hundreds of templates on hand, but you don’t have to worry about them getting lost or cluttering up your workspace. This can be extremely helpful if you’re working in a tight space and you just don’t have that much room to spread out.

You might have found, too, that when you bought kits in the past you didn’t end up using everything in the kit which meant that you had a lot of extra papers and designs left lying around. With a digital kit, scrapbooking becomes a lot more efficient because the layouts and designs are kept on your computer so you only have to print out the ones that you want to use!

Of course, one of the biggest benefits is that you don’t have to cut up any of the hard copies of your photographs. Instead, you can use digital images that you have either uploaded from your camera or scanned and insert them into the layouts that you want to use. Then, all you have to do is print them out and place them in your album. Some people really prefer this method because they don’t like the idea of cutting their pictures up. Plus, you can use digitally edited photos on your computer and incorporate all kinds of effects into them that would be difficult to do otherwise.

So what kinds of designs and layouts can you expect to find in a digital kit? You might be pleasantly surprised at the variety that you have. You can usually choose from a range of digital actions, elements, scripts, brushes, colors, images, and templates. You might want to use a simple pre-conceived layout that already exists or you may want to create your own using the different choices that are available. You can have as much control over the finished design as you choose.

You should also find that the kits come with an assortment of quality papers, too, that will help make your scrapbooking pages stand out in your album. It’s important to have a variety because different pages usually have different themes and it’s fun to be creative when you’re scrapbooking. You might find patterned paper, colored paper, textured paper, or even themed paper within the kits.

Naturally, you don’t just have to use the digital kit for your album. Some people like to mix and match. You might design your own layout from pages that you create on your computer and then mix them with other pages that weren’t digitally created.

A final thought about digital kit scrapbooking:

Of course, when you design your pages on the computer using a digital kit, scrapbooking is incredibly easy because if you’re not satisfied with the way that something is looking you can always start over or change something without having to worry about messy glue or tape. With just a few simple clicks of a button you can move things around and rearrange them and be totally satisfied with your end product. It’s all about having fun! So get out there and get your digital kit scrapbooking jones on!
