Digital scrapbooking ?

I bought a Print Artist kit for my computer. I can do loads of things with it but one of them is scrapbooking. I dont really understand digital versus paper. When you do digital do you print out the page and put it in a book, or keep it on the computer? If you do print out the page, I imagine it will only print 8'10 so it wont fit in a 12'12.. Am I making this harder than it really is?

I personally keep most on the pc and wait to paper print until my project is complete - i.e. a full book or a quick birthday/holiday card/layout. I then either print it on my printer at 8x8 or order books online and print them either 8x8 or 12x12. You can also order single prints at photo shops in the 12x12 size if you prefer. But with keeping it on the pc, it's a great way to create slide shows for parties or if you have an idea that you want to change a certain layout, it's already there so you don't have to redo it or dig in your backup to reload it. Hope you enjoy digiscrapping!

I print singles at Costco too (12x12s for gifts or frames).
I print books at shutterfly, I make albums for each year (12x12).

Quality is great with both of those stores. Clarity is pretty similar to printing an actual picture. Some discount stores can be a little grainy - get what you pay for type of thing.
