    Do you do it?

    If so do you use a specific scrapbook kit by a company or did you find it in publisher or power point?

    No. I bet it's much quicker to make pages though.

    Thanks for the reply. Does anyone do digital scrapbooking?

    I am kinda confused as to the point of purchasing a scrapbook kit using one of the two softwares that have been mentioned? The last time I started asking questions no one could understand why I so confused?//

    does this seem confusion to you?

    I do a lot of digital scrapbooking, but I so far have not printed out any layouts. I do it because I enjoy participating in the challenges. There are a lot of sites that give free kits, and have good tutorials. My very favorite for learning is GottaPixel.net, but there are others I can link you to.

    For actually doing it, NOTHING beats Photoshop Elements (well, except the FULL version of Photoshop, if you care to spen $600), but if you aren't willing to put a little time into learning, there are some scrapbook specific programs available. I'm guessing they don't offer nearly the flexibility of Photoshop, but are probably quicker. Depends on what you want to do. Check with some of the message boards at the digital sites for 'user' experiences.

    Samantha, I'm not EXACTLY sure what you are asking, but here's my attempt. Are you saying that you've seen KITS for purchase and wonder why you need them with Publisher or Word?

    To be sure we are talking about the same thing, let me throw out a couple of definitions. MS Word and Publisher, Photoshop, and others are PROGRAMS or APPLICATIONS (depending on if you are part of the Windows world or the Mac World).

    Scapbooking KITS are a set of ELEMENTS to USE in a program. Kind of stretching an analogy...a Word document would be your blank scrapbook page. You go to Michaels and purchase pp, eyelets, ribbons, etc to USE on the page; sometimes as part of a page kit. A digital KIT is the same thing....background 'paper' and digital 'embellishments' to import and use in Word.

    I don't know if this answers what you wanted to know, but if not, if you can explain further, I'll try to give a better answer.

    OH thank you for clarifying this for me!!! I thought the kits were actual programs itself that were just like word or excel you just installed.

    So, scrapbooking kits are expanded elements of that specific program say "word" that you purchase just like you would when you do manual scrapbooking.

    So, the scrapbooking kits actually are an expansion of a specific program like word, publisher, and powerpoint.

    Okay this helps me out soooooooo much!!

    Did I get it??

    Samantha,
    Pretty much you have it. Just want to be sure that you understand that most kits are not software specific. They are jpeg's and png's that should work with pretty much any graphics program you choose, just like your digital photos.

    Samantha, are you look for a program to buy for you can do digital scrapbooking, there is a site that has a free software program that I used until I got into digital scrapbooking which has been about 6 mths. www.scrapbookflair.com is where I got it at (thanks to my mother) it is a great program to start off with if that is what you are meaning. Now I use PSE5, got it for a late Christmas gift from my kids and other half. You can still buy kits if you want or you can get freebies from some sites or blogs that does designs and it should work with the scarpbookflair program, about 98% of what kits I downloaded work great in this program.
