Handmade scrapbooks are a very wonderful way to document family stories and all the colorful memorabilia that goes with them. Scrapbooks are priceless records of my family's life.

Now, I have a great idea to use the computer. And I want to encourage others who want to create scrapbooks to use computer as their toolkit too. Especially to those who don't have talent with scissors and papers. Adding computing power to your scrapbooking toolkit enables you to create complex layouts faster and easier, re-size and copy photographs, and take advantage of an amazing collection of fonts to dress up your text. Computers are so much more forgiving when you're trying to create a great design. You can crop a photo, and then undo the crop if you don't like it, and try again. You can move images and text around the page and then move them again if you change your mind- and you don't even have to worry about whether the glue has dried yet. With just a few clicks, you can start building beautiful pages, or create sections of photo pages.
Digital scrapbook pages can be printed on any kind of photo paper so you won't have to worry about running out of that special handmade paper. You can also design a photo book just like you design digital scrapbook pages. A photo book can be so much more than just a photo album. There are many different ways to create scrapbook pages and photo book on a computer and almost as many programs you can use to do so. It could save both time and money.
