    Default Another newbie

    I've been lurking your board for awhile! You girls are so creative. I've tried my hand in scrapbooking a few times before, but now that I have a little one I feel a fire under my rear to start up again. I have a cricut and a few cartridges but other than that I am starting from scratch.

    One question.....I am trying to decided wether to invest in digital scrapbooking or paper, can anyone give me some advice on the pros/cons of each?

    Hope to start sharing with you soon!

    welcome!!!!

    I've done both digi and paper. and honestly, if I had gotten into digital first, I never would have gone paper. I love both, and it's so easy to be creative with either media.

    WELCOME! I'd say you're off to a great start with a Cricut and some carts. The only thing I can give pros for is paper scrapbooking because that's all i've done. I think it's a personal preference. For me I like "hands-on"....digging through my stash and physically touching the elements. something about that inspires me.

    Welcome! I do paper and I love the physical part of putting things together. Esp if you have a cricut you have endless possibilities.

    Welcome Kat! Always fun to get new members here, this is a great group of women for both inspiring creativity and for friendship. You'll be glad you joined. Looking forward to getting to know more about you. I also do paper and enjoy just getting my hands "dirty" too, but can see how there are many advantages to digital. GL with your decision.

    Hi and welcome! I'm a soley digital girl, but I used to be paper - I got a program for Christmas 4 years ago and never went back to paper. I think you just have to decide if you like the tactile part of it, otherwise it's about the same. I print all my pages, and they look great printed (if I do say so myself lol). What I like about digi compared to paper is the lack of 'mess' - you don't have to drag all the supplies out (I never had a dedicated scrapping space), just your computer, and the 'mess' is on your hard drive. I think the cost for digi, if you use mainly freebies, is less as well, unless you're like me and like to buy digital kits (I figured out I spent about $8 a page, including printing, so that's not bad, really). Having a Cricut though would tempt me to do paper again!

    Welcome! Excited to have you here.

    Like Trina, I switched to digital over 2 years ago and I'm completey hooked. I started when Andrea was born. I would design on my laptop while I breastfed. It was great and I've developed from there. I love that I can start and stop and pick up when ever I want without any mess around. It is also cheaper. I Love, love, love printing digital books too.
