    Well I tried paper.. Ok I bought paper supplies and thought I might give it a try. I didn’t have a clue were to begin though so it sat for a very long time untouched. Then I saw a scrapbook magazine at the grocery store and bought it thinking it could help me find my way. Turns out it was a digital scrap mag…. My grandkids had fun with the paper supplies I bought and I have never looked back. Digi lover through and through.

    I was a paper scrapper for 15 years before I tried going digital. I was also one of those scrappers WHO SWORE they would NEVER go digital!!! Ever, ever!!! I wasn’t prepared to give up all of my tangible supplies! However, I have found away to do both. I like each for different reasons, and often times I like to go hybrid!!!! 🙂

    I paper scrapped some, but not much. I have been a graphic designer for 10+ years, so it was an easy transition that made more sense for me.

    I certainly was a paper scrapper first… and sometimes miss some of the little things I took for granted like running a piece of ribbon off the edge of the page or similar…

    do a bit of hybrid now to ease that longing… but 99% a digi girl now!

    i was a paper scrapper before going digital. i used to do both but since the last move i have converted to all digital. i have a feeling that when we get resettled i will return to a little bit of paper but will stay mainly digital. it is so much easier, faster, and cheaper (for me!).

    I still consider myself a paper scrapper. But I have jumped into digital with both feet, lol.

    I did paper scrap some before I got my first digital camera. Then I started digital scrapbooking before there was such a thing and did it for years using programs like Microsoft Picture It. I never knew there was a whole industry until about a year and a half ago.

    I paper scrapped a little after my stepmom gave me a bunch of supplies for my wedding shower. But once I found digi, I never wanted to go back to paper scrapping, and I don’t even like hybrid.

    I was a paper scrapper when I was younger but I didn’t get much accomplished after having my second child. Digiscrapping has changed that!

    I am still a paper scrapper – nothing beats the fun of shopping for new papers, and the smiles on my kids faces when they flip through pages in my albums.

    I paper scrapped for a few months. But it was too much work to get all the supplies out and then put back away. Not to mention the expense. I am definitely a huge fan of digital scrapbooking!!

    I never paper scrapped. I was scared of messing up as I have no crafting skills whatsoever. I can’t cut in a straight line, I end up with glue all over the place, and there is no place in my home to put all of my supplies. Plus, getting started sounded expensive. Now I have started digi-scrapping and lately I have started to conquer my fear of paper and glue by printing small hybrid projects and making cards for my loved ones.

    I still paper scrap and do all sorts of paper crafts in addition to Digital. I love both and digital is a great way to ‘test’ layouts before cutting your papers!

    I was a paper scrapper for years before timidly venturing into the digital world but once I started with digital scrapping, I’ve never looked back. Now if I could just find a way to get rid of all those paper supplies without a lot of guilt. Sigh ….

    I was not a paper scrapper and had no interest in being one! I found digi in April 2007 and fell in love immediately.

    I never took to paper scrapping at all – i actually don’t like the bulky books my paper scrapping friends have done (I would never tell them!) …… you’d be so afraid of accidentally tearing off a ribbon or bead and forever wondering where something belonged because it fell out the book as soon as you picked it up. I found everything just SO distracting from the photos and journalling.

    I came upon digi by accident ages later and what a revelation!! To me it’s art – you can dress up your pages without letting it take over from those all important pics & stories. And I just love that you can use things again and again and again – how eco friendly is that! 🙂

    I was not a paper scrapper, I did a 21st album and a couple pages for our honeymoon, but I’m too slow at paper scrapping 🙂 Digi is way faster! (once you get the hang of it)

    I was a paper scrapper (more of a hoarder tho, lol) until 2007 when I finally embraced digital. I love it and haven’t looked back! Although I do enjoy making hybrid projects and getting my hands dirty. Thanks for the wonderful chances!

    I did paper scrapping priour to doing digital. Going back to when ellements came from magazine or newspapers. Looking nothing like what Photoshop does. I love the Sweet Spontaneity kit your offering, such a cute fench and rose arbor included. Thank you for a chance to win.

    I am new to digiscrapping, I am posting to facebook. This all looks fascinating to me. I am soaking up all your ideas, hints and freebies. I have only been scrapbooking for a couple of years, doing it digital looks like it will be much quicker. I have close to 10,000 pictures to organize, YIKES!!!
