Thanks for these links. I like to pick up scrapbooking items here and there for small projects.

If you really want to be frugal with your scrapbooking, go digital! After an initial investment in software (Photoshop Elements is the most popular software for digi-scrapping but there are others) you can scrapbook for next to nothing. There are lots of free downloads of products out there, and you can buy kits (digital papers and elements for just a few dollars that can be used over and over. Printing your pages can be expensive, but Costco has great prices on scrapbook page printing, and places like Shutterfly often have promotions. There are lots of options available for printing individual pages or photo books. I've never paid full price for a photobook ever.

I went digital several years ago, and I spend a fraction of what I did when I was paper-scrapping. Not only is it less expensive, it is less messy and less time-consuming (once you get past the software learning curve. I do enjoy the hands-on aspects of paper crafts and I like to do smaller projects with my daugher, but I'll never go back to paper-based media for the majority of my scrapbooking.

Sorry for the double post. Not sure how that happened.

GaoyouMom, what did you do with all.that.stuff ?! That's really the only thing that's kept me from going digital is not wanting to waste it!

AJ, I still have some of it, but some of it I've gotten rid of in various ways.

I gave a big box of Chatterbox stuff to my teen & tween nieces and I've donated some of it to my church for them to use for Sunday School projects. One time I boxed up an assortment of Close To My Heart papers and coordinating stuff (markers, inks, etc) and sold it on ebay. I'm hanging onto all of my cutting tools (Creative Memories mostly) because we use that stuff for school and craft projects.

I knew I had truly gone digital when I let my daughter cut into the scrapbook papers.

I understand about not wanting to waste all that stuff. But in my case, it was already going to waste because I just wasn't getting much scrapbooking accomplished. I'd buy a piece of paper for $.79 and then be afraid to cut it for fear of ruining it. One of the great thing about digital papers is that you can "undo" it.
