    Hello! I'm new to this board.. not to preg.org though... i LOVE scrapbooking, but i honestly haven't had much time for it since my daughter was born over a year ago... I was watching tv today (QVC) and they had a digital scrapbooking segment on (the program was called "Memory Mixer II") Anyways... then i got to thinking that maybe I should just do digital because at the rate I'm going, I'm never going to catch up! (I have about 5 pages done for my daughter's scrapbook!) I have so many pictures and themes I want to do, but I don't have the time. Anyways... I was just curious as to what programs you use and what you would recommend???

    (I'm kind of hesitant to buy that program before I can check out some other ones first) Here's the link to the QVC one:

    hey Linda! welcome to the board. I'm more of a paper cropper than a digital, but I do dabble in the digital. I use Microsoft's Picture It for the digital, and while it works for me, I wouldn't recommend it if you're just starting out (mainly because they stopped making it in 2003, and now make something else instead). I know a lot of people use Photoshop Elements for their pages, but I don't know anything about it.

    Good luck, can't wait to see what you come up with once you start!

    Hi Linda and welcome! I think I've seen you on the October board right? My son was born Oct. 9th, so I lurk there quite often. I'm originally from the November board, but Kayson decided he wanted to come early. I am a paper scrapper only, so sadly I will be no help on the digi side, but there are some GREAT digi scrappers on this board that will be of great help I'm sure.

    Hi there!

    I switched to digital because it is so much easier to do with little ones around. Just a lot less mess.

    I've tried a couple of programs, my favorite are Microsoft's programs. It depends on how "into it" you think you will get. A program like Memory Mixer is good for beginers because they are usually easy and come with a bunch of backgrounds, etc. I started with a program like that. Unfortunately, if you stay with it you start to feel limited by what you can do. I upgraded to Microsoft Digital Image Pro (same as Microsoft Picture It). The next step up would be Adobe Photoshop but I can't afford that now.

    Anyway, welcome!

    Welcome to the board!!
    I am a digi scrapper and LOVE it because it cuts down on mess and my son can't get his hands into everything

    I use Corel's Paint Shop Pro. It works really well for me. It is I think easy enough for beginners but it is capible of doing a whole lot. If you go to Corel.com you can download a trial version and give it a try.

    Can't wait to see some of your pages!
