When I first became a mom, I scrapbooked every single 4x6 photo I took and printed. This was over a decade ago and before I even owned a digital camera. For my oldest daughter's first birthday, I filled an entire 8.5x11 scrapbook with tons of memorabilia, photos and included all of her cards. By the time I had my second child, birthday scrapbooks became easier, less time consuming and more cost effective by creating photo books.
I recently ordered a photo book for my youngest little lady after celebrating her 5th birthday. I like to mix things up by creating digital scrapbook pages on my phone, computer and by using the online software made available via Shutterfly.
Here are four simple and quick digital pages I created just for that photo book:
|"Bounce" Digital Scrapbook Layout using Pics Art app (Android).|
|"What? Do I Look Like Trouble?" Digital Scrapbook Layout using My Memories Suite.|
|"Look Who's 5" Digital Scrapbook Layout using My Memories Suite.|
|"Happy Birthday" Digital Scrapbook Layout using My Memories Suite.|
I added these pages to the photo book, included plenty of other photos and journaling while I customized the pages to fit my style. An easy peasy time-saver!
