Easy Made Scrapbooking Simple
Clean Scrapbooking Simple
Scrapbooking Kits... New and Improved for Kids.
By Wes Waddell
Bonding with kids is important for their emotional quotient. Sharing
moments with them like going out, joining activities in school, and
simply having a great dinner in fancy restaurants with them are just
some of the affairs they remember to be worthwhile as a child
growing up with great parents. But, how about indoors?
There is one activity parent and child could engage in doing at home
without thinking of mistakes, peer pressures and/or errors. That is
digital kit scrapbooking on the computer. Fancy artistic ready-made
digital computer scrapbook kits are sold online now all the time.
One of my very favorite sources is at
Some of the best ones have additional items like printed stencils,
textured papers to print, additional paint schemes, colors,
printable stickers and many other ready to tweak scrapbook
embellishement stuff. It could cost a little now but what matters is
the activity it could give to a child or teen and the number of
times it can be used to create totally different pages and themes.
When our kids were growing up, we liked to combine more than one
scrapbook kit to come up with our own unique style and layouts.
Scrapbooking is a great way to promote bonding while spending
quality time together as a family. Adding the computer to the
process makes the kids feel on equal ground or lets them even become
the teacher in some cases. Kids and computers go together today as
simply as peanutbutter and jelly. Scrapbooking, especially digital
or computer scrapbooking is one of the best methods I know of to get
kids talking and sharing in the activity.
Let's face it, telling stories of your childhood through
scrapbooking and letting your children see and hear of your trials
and exploits, just may be best lecture you ever give them without
them knowing it even happened.
A well planned digital scrapbook kit is the perfect way to get the
stories flowing... for both of you!
Most of these new and improved digital scrapbook kits are to be
assembled with very little instructions required. Just open your
favorite digital or computer scrapbook program and insert the pieces
any way you choose. For such an activity, children as young as 8 or
9 can be easily guided and can really show their own style, with
just a little of mommy's help.
What is really fun is expecting the final outcome of the project.
You can never lose with digital scrapbooking kits because they can
be kept as a nice remembrance of the shared moment and printed out
in as many copies as needed. One for your families album, one for
the child's growing scrapbook and even one for grandma and grandpa's
Christmas or other holiday gift scrapbook. If you've checked out the

your digital scrapbook project printed as a real hardbound family
How would you feel as an adult looking at a computer scrapbook kit
you assembled with your mom when you were just 10 years old? I'll
bet you could just imagine the wonder and joy it brings back to you
of the good old days of childhood!
If so, then I'm sure you can imagine what it's going to mean to your
children or even grandchildren for you to create your own digital
scrapbooks together now.

You can start making the layout of your scrapbook by occasion or by
a timeline of events. If you really have a serious passion with
computer scrapbooking, it takes only a good mood to list down ideas
on how you will start with making workable scrapbook theme. You can
simply list down important events that happen most of the time in
your yearly routines like the some of the following:
CHILD'S BIRTHDAY - if you have more than one sibling, you can decide
on working a digital scrapbook template based on their favorite
colors, or even go through your boxes of stored photos or pictures
and get ideas for the best scrapbook layout later. You can also
brouse through the thousands of ideas on sites like
www.PrincessCrafts.com to help get the ideas flowing.
ANNIVERSARIES - you can come up with a concept for you and your
husband's yearly celebration. You can even leave space for not only
memorable pictures, but for cards, dried flowers, or theater ticket
stubs which you can then insert or attach for the perfect digital
scrapbook page kit theme. No formalities needed as long as the
layout is organized and has meaning to you and your family.
SEASONS - Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations may be the busiest
times of the year. Cards may flood in for everyone in the family. It
takes some thinking to realize you may also provide a little space
even for the holiday postage stamps used in sending the snail mails.
You should also keep dedications or personal notes with dates and
important names. These are good elements to work on with a digital
scrapbook template for an effective scrapbooking holiday or special
occasion scrapbook theme.
HALLOWEEN - If you are into it, this can be some of the coolest
themes you can have for scrapbook pages and themes. Lots of pictures
and fun images could go well with a Halloween digital computer
scrapbook template. Kids are definitely interested in looking at
their spooky photos as part of a good colorful computer generated
scrapbook. You can use a digital scrapbook kit for fall or harvest
themes for this time of year as well.
Yes, creating computer digital scrapbooks using digital scrapbooking
kits may be all about distributing the template for beloved
relatives who shared important memories with you. You could collect
images, reproduce them by scanning, make all the printed copies you
need and compile them in completed scrapbook projects for each
family member. You could even just send the digital scrapbook kit to
at least 5 to 10 different relatives and just wait to see the
different designs and scrapbook pages that come back to you. Call a
reunion and require them to bring and show each other the assembled
digital scrapbook kits. That ought to get the stories and memories
Bet the kids don't complain about being there for that holiday
