Scrapbooking blogging fail: I didn't realize how long it's been since I last posted! My biggest problem now is that I'm caught up with all the photos I have on my computer, so I have to have a scrapbook backlog photo shoot soon.
We did a lot in September, but I failed to adequately take pictures, so it was an easy one-month layout. I'd been hoarding an apple print 4x6 from an old Messy Box kit for several months just so I could use it alongside apple picking photos. I failed to make a full layout out of that apple picking trip, but the card still worked well in this spread! The rest are mostly digital cards I got as a free download from Studio Calico. It was my first time using digital cards and it took quite a while to make sure they printed in the right size, but I was satisfied in the end and I've purchased some digital cards since!
If you're thinking about delving into digital cards, here's my two cents:
- Reusability. If you like the card set, you don't have to worry about using it up! You can reprint again and again.
- Repeatability. See above, but in this case I mean you can use the same card as many times as you'd like in a single layout/page.
- Worry-free. Mess up your journaling or stamping, etc.? Just print it and try it again!
- Quality. This probably depends on your printer (I have a Canon MG7720) but even at the highest quality print setting it didn't old up to the look or feeling of physical cards I've purchased. The colors aren't as vibrant and the lines and writing aren't as sharp.
My pros clearly outweigh the cons and I'm an official digital card user. If you're thinking about it, see if you can get a free download to test out.
