I’m so impressed. So many people are getting this digital thing figured out! Lately, it seems like about once a week we receive a baby announcement or some other type of announcement or invitation or something. And now, most of them are created digitally.
I think that’s so great. It gives “mass production” a whole new meaning. As an avid card maker, I have loved the process – from beginning to end – of mass-producing our Christmas cards every year. This past Christmas was an experimental year for us in this department. I was extraordinarily busy with the book I was working on at the time and knew I wouldn’t have time to mass-produce cards as I usually do.
The solution? A hybrid card, designed partly with physical materials – textured cardstock, patterned paper, brads, sewing machine stitching – and partly in Photoshop. The combined effort resulted in a jpg that I uploaded to Costco’s one-hour printer … and the easiest mass-production EVER! I’m telling you – it felt so liberating!
I still haven’t “gone completely digital” as many have, but I really appreciate that digital scrapbooking is just as much an art as the traditional paper way of doing things. And I love mixing a little bit of the digital thing into my scrapbooks, namely with photo editing.
So I’m curious. Those of you who have gone completely digital with your scrapbooking, what was it that pushed you in that direction? What would you say to those contemplating digital scrapbooking?
