Since 1994 the scrapbooking community has set aside the first Saturday in May as their own special day. National Scrapbooking Day is a day to revel in all we love about scrapbooking – and it’s this Saturday, May 4th! Here at Pro Digital Photos, we will be celebrating National Scrapbooking Day ALL WEEK!
If you are new to digital scrapbooking, you might be wondering just what that means. Digital Scrapbooking is a lot like traditional scrapbooking, only all the papers, embellishments, beads, glitter, stickers, etc. are replaced with digital images that can be used in any photo-editing software like Photoshop Elements, Publisher, GIMP, etc. No glue or scissors required! And best of all, you never run out of supplies! You can use your digital files again and again on numerous projects. Digital scrapbooking allows scrapbookers to expand their creativity in thousands of ways, while not requiring any clean up or closet space to store supplies.
To join in on the festivities, we are offering an amazing deal on our printed scrapbook pages! At Pro Digital Photos, we offer 12×12 printing on Photographic Paper or our Photobook Press paper especially for printing digital scrapbooking pages! All week, single-sided scrabooking pages are only $0.99 each! You can also upgrade your pages to pearl, linen, pearl-linen, pebble, watercolor, recycled thick matte, or UV coated gloss paper for only $0.25! Be sure to use the code “scrapbook” at checkout to take advantage of this fabulous deal!
One of our favorite sources for digital scrapbooking goodies is ScrapGirls.com. They are an industry leader in digital scrapbooking, and will be celebrating their 9th birthday this fall. They offer a large variety of adorable digital scrapbooking kits, pre-made “Easy Pages”, papers, embellishments, and even tutorials! In addition to embellishments and kits, they also offer Photoshop & Lightroom Actions (great for quick photo editing), Custom Shapes, and Fonts. Whether you’re a digital scrapbooking pro, or just getting started, Scrap Girls is a great resource!

They are providing Pro Digital Photos Fans with 3 exclusive “Easy Pages”, which are pre-made templates that allow you to add in your photos and quickly have a beautiful finished scrapbook page in minutes!
