I am pretty new here, and I see a lot of you do digital scrapbooking, thought I would do a poll to see who scraps on paper and who uses digital? Or do you do both? Why do you do whichever kind you choose?
I do paper scrapbooking. I really like doing things with my hands, and I spend so much time on the computer otherwise, I really enjoy spending time doing something away from the computer. I also LOVE going to the store and actually picking up paper and such for my scrapbooking or getting orders in the mail!
My answers are the same as yours.
Digital ... lets me be way more creative than paper, less mess (according to my dh), and I do print them all out to put in books. I love that with digital anything is possible - I started out paper, and digital has just let me express myself more. (and with the computer 'tricks' - learning my program is an ongoing thing, and I still think it's my work even with the computer as the medium for doing it).
I love that I can do it with no cost except to print, no mess, and I can play with a LO as much as I want before calling it done (the wonders of delete and cut/paste!)!

I do both. I love the hands on paper approach, which is what I do most. But I also love the flexibility of digital, which is why I also create pages that way too.

both. I love paper for all the reasons you listed, I love working with my hands and feeling the textures. I love digital because its clean, I think its really fun and I can do it and stop mid-layout if I have to so that ds can't mess it up. I print the digital layouts and put them in the books right beside the paper layouts.
