Have you been thinking about getting into digital scrapbooking, but you are not sure where to start? I have recently come across a website that launched this past summer that looks like a perfect way to introduce yourself to digital scrapbooking. Scrapblog.com is a free service with many fun creative possibilities.
Scrapblog.com offers the user many exciting and easy to use options for creating custom scrapbook layouts online.
Signing up for an account was easy and took less than a minute. When you sign up, you get to name a URL that will be specific to you. This is what you can share with your friends and family so that they can see your layouts.
Pictures can be imported from your own computer or web based programs such as flicker or photobucket. Importing pictures was very user friendly and easy to use.
Once you have your photos imported, then the real fun can begin.
If you are feeling a little unsure about designing a page from scratch, Scrapblog.com has many templates that you can choose from as a start for your page. All you need to do in import you pictures and drop them into the template. You can also add text to make it more personalized. You can also rearrange the elements on the page by clicking on them and then dragging them to your desired location.
If you would like to create the entire page from a blank page, you can do that too. You can select plain colored backgrounds or select a background from a variety of options that include different textures.
Pictures can be cropped, resized, and placed at angles. You can also add solid colored boarder (quick and easy matting) or choose from their selection of picture frames to highlight your photo.
You can add more customization to you page by browsing through and selecting stickers from their large sticker selection. Once you select the sticker, you just drag and drop it onto you page. You can them move them around and resize them.
You can also add text to you page by filling a journaling block or they have text bubble that you can select and fill with your text.
Another fun feature of the site is that you can add video clips and audio to your pages.
If you would like to see a nice demo that shows how to use the features on the site, you can click on the tour link on their site.
After signing up and trying out this site, I would highly recommend this to someone who wants an easy introduction to digital scrapbooking with great options for sharing the layouts with your friend and family.
