This time last year, I was on my fantastic London vacation with my aunt. I’ve been working on a digital scrapbook dedicated to the trip recently. Digital scrapbooking is when you combine photos, text and scrapbook elements together (like a traditional scrapbook), but everything is done on your computer, usually in Photoshop or with similar software.


Pages are printed off on a wide format printer or uploaded online to a scrapbook page printing service and then put into an online album- or you can just post your creations online and store them there. Digital scrapping is time and cost efficient compared to the traditional method. Hybrid scrapbooking is when you combine elements of traditional and digital scrapbooking together.

Since I’m a web and graphic designer in my 9-5 life, digital scrapping is pretty easy for me since a lot of the same skills overlap. But for those who might just be starting out, I’ve compiled a batch of YouTube videos that will help you get better at the craft of digital scrapbooking, and maybe teach seasoned scrappers some new techniques too.
