Scrapbooking Your Travel Photos

I love the traditional way of scrapbooking.  Really.  I do. I love wandering around and choosing the paper. I love seeing all the new stuff that is out, I love the camaraderie of being with fellow scrappers.  I love my local scrapbook store.  As a matter of fact the owner has an awesome online store at http://www.scrapbookingmadesimple.net Where you can get the newest and best scrapbooking supplies out there. And if you live in the Santa Clarita Area I highly recommend getting over to her retail store at  18909 Soledad Canyon in Canyon Country and meeting the ladies. They are fantastic.  The shop is in the same parking lot as Taco Bell. Tucked away in the corner. The crop nights are reasonably priced and the ladies are a blast.  You will get tons of help and all kinds of amazing traditional scrapbook supplies. You will make fabulous creations that you never knew you could.

I am however a mom of teenagers with a travel business.  I don’t always have time to get over to the scrapbook store and scrap with my friends.    I have found a way to quickly and easily scrapbook your travel pictures.  I can’t believe how easy it is.  It is called Smilebox.  The layout below I did in literally 10 minutes.  It would have been faster but it did take me about 4 of those minutes to familiarize myself  with the program.  Their layouts are beautiful and you can share them on social networking sites, email them or burn them to a dvd.  So amazing!  I like them so much I have become an affliate, which means they pay me to recommend them. I would never recommend something I don’t use and don’t love just so you know.  The program is not perfect.  It definitely works better if you aren’t using it with a bunch of windows open.  It can be a little slow and I have had a few glitches uploading my own music.  That said even with a few minor inconveniences it is really great.   Did I mention that the service is free?  Well you can sign up, and create beautiful free scrapbook design layouts.  If you want to share or email them it will still be free, however there will be ads on the side.  If you want to pay for the service and have it ad free and have all their premium services such as using all their music or uploading your own, all the extras that is available for a price.
