I wanted to share with somebody! I've been doing siggies for awhile and do some pencil artwork and graphic design on the side, but have never tried an actual scrapbooking page, digital or otherwise. This was made using elements and papers from the JM Pumpkin Pie Spice blog train (I think just ones from my mini kit and from Rochelle's big kit, but if you haven't seen and downloaded the whole thing, go do it now!) Now, do you print these things out or what? It seems like the papers are 12" x 12" - is that an album size? Where do you get them printed, and on what kind of paper? Do you stick them in an album? I was thinking it might be nice to make a chronology of the year and make a scrapbook for my mom for Christmas but I don't have a clue

Super cute page!

As for your questions I have yet to print anything but I am making a memory book that I will be printing online through www.shutterfly.com

They have tons of printing and gift options. There are many printing options though. You can make your LO any size and print them at home or at a local print shop. You can add them to albums or frame them for your walls. You can print them in books, on shirts, on coffee mugs, make calendars or even print off home made coasters. Your options are pretty much unlimited when it comes to digital scrap booking. I would say most people either print at home or print from an online company.

Good luck and welcome to the digi forum!

Thanks Nicole (MommaDucks) for my new & awesome siggy.

It's so cute!!! Great job!

I think one of the cheapest ways to have the pages printed is to do it at Shutterfly. They will put it in a book for you, 12X12 or 8X8 and bind it all up with a hard cover. That way you don't have to print each page individually and also buy an album and extra pages for the album, etc.

Cute page!

Winkflash.Com is actually cheaper if you want to bind the pages in a book, and they have quite regular sales. I just get individual pages printed (at Costco) because I never do anything chronologically and like to be able to rearrange the order of my pages whenever I feel like it. I buy 12x12 scrapbook albums at Michaels or AC Moore (using their weekly 40-50% off coupons).
