My Very First!

I thought I would try a hand at digital scrapbooking since I am always at my computer and very rarely scrapbook anymore. What do you think???

Hi Kristin,

You don't me but I know your husband Terry. You have a beautiful family and take some wonderful pictures. Your going to have your hands full with your eldest when she gets older, hope Terry got a shotgun to keep the boys away.

Anyway, love your blog page.

Regards

Julian Madigan

It looks wonderful. The pictures alone are all so beautiful that you could simply put them in a portfolio.

I have downloaded lots of digital kits from different sites (digichick, shabbyprincess, twopeasinabucket to name a few) and the stuff I used is kind of hodge podge. I put it all together in photoshop. I have a large format printer so i will just print them off 12x12 and put them in an album. We have done alot of this stuff for primay and it turns out really nice printed. If you want to give it a try and don't have a big printer you can also upload them to costco and they print 12x12. 8x8 is also cute and there are alot of 8x8 size albums. if you have any other questions I would be happy to answer them!! Thanks for all of the comments too!! You guys boost my ego almost daily! Love it, Love it!

ok, i do have more questions. (i'll check back here for the answer.)
being the pro photographer that you are i'm sure you appreciate quality prints--what printer do you have and how do you like it?
also, how much does it cost to print out 12x12?

As far as being pro photographer i don't know about that but as far as the printer it is an hp deskjet 9650 but it is about 4 years old and i'm sure they have come out with a better one since then. it cost me about $399 i think. But I do love it, it does great prints and as far as cost I thinks it works out to about 1.75 or 2.00 I think for a 12x12. I haven't really priced paper on the internet though, I'm sure I could find it cheaper. i have only used the office max or office depot brands that are 13x19 and the quality of the paper is good but there is some waste, i bet online i could probably find a better price and maybe event he size i need!! hope this helps!

Ok- I just got online and saw you can buy 12x12 size photo paper for around $21 for 50 sheets, that is way better than what I have been paying! ]I don't know how good of quality it is but i'm ordering some right now!! I'll let know how i like it
