Online Scrapbooking Tools
10 online resources that merge a little bit of digital with old-fashioned scrapbooking
In the age of digital cameras, video phones and photo printers, a new style of scrapbooking was bound to surface—and it has. But don't worry, old pros—hold on to your glue sticks. Yes, media advances have made memory-logging convenient, but the sentiment that comes with a sweat-and-tears, shreds-and-shears, coffee-table photo-book hasn't been completely lost. In fact, most of the new digital scrapbooking tools offer web-to-print services. Here are the ones we think are unique, user-friendly and deserving of your memories.
Creative Park cp.c-ij.com/english
Canon's Creative Park offers all services free of charge. A downloadable kit allows users to print standard 12″ x 12″ scrapbook pages. This way, in addition to creating new books, you can continue adding to already-made books. Also unique to Creative Park are downloadable 3D papercraft cut-fold-and-glue templates.
Shutterfly, known for photo-books (template-guided) and digital scrapbooking (from-scratch designs), has been upgraded. Expansions include a partnership with a celebrity designer; a pewter ornament, which is among many unique photo-printing gift ideas such as jewelry and a keepsake box; a team of new photo-card designers; and a special expert-moderated holiday blog, for serious scrapbloggers!
One True Media onetruemedia.com
Unique to One True Media is a photo/video montage, which users can e-mail, turn into a keepsake DVD, and now, for the first time, send to TiVo! Simply upload any digital photos and/or videos you have, edit and preview. When you're ready to share, create a channel code, which friends and family can plug into their TiVo to view your handiwork from home!
Scrapblog, a drag-and-drop digital scrapbooking tool launched in April 2006, is one of few websites that use site-to-site photo uploading. Before you even register, the software searches your other existing digital photo storage spots and networking sites, such as Webshots and Facebook, and collects all your photos in your new, free Scrapblog account. A printing feature will be available in January 2008.
CVS Photo Center cvs.pnimedia.com
CVS Photo Center offers a convenient and inexpensive photo printing service. Once you've uploaded and arranged your photos, you can decorate digitally or print blank pages and craft at home. Pricing starts at $16.99, and newly registered members will receive eight free prints. You can order in-store or online and pick up at your local CVS.
During October 2007, Ancestry.com—the world's largest online family history resource—launched Ancestry-Press. Users can now publish professionally printed family history books, family recipe books and more. Although a yearly fee is applied to use the database, which contains more than 5 million records, registering and uploading your own personal stories, photos and more is free.
StoryBook Creator 2.0 creativememories.com
Designed to be extremely user-friendly “for the pre-computer generation,” this tool, with its contemporary template options and design themes, also appeals to even the most savvy of computer and scrapbooking gurus. Unlike when creating photo-books, where the description must fit solely within the caption, when creating a “storybook,” there's plenty of room for storytelling.
My Photo Album myphotoalbum.com
Create a large photo album in minutes with this easy, multiple photo uploading tool. The site's mission: personalization through a wide variety of themes and templates. Also available from their gift shop: tote bags, personalized diaper bags, playing cards and posters.
Kodak Gallery kodakgallery.com/PhotoBookOverview.jsp
What's cute and affordable by Kodak? The professionally printed mini photo-book for just $6.99. We were also impressed by their extensive product list, which includes apparel and accessories, frames and albums, home decor, stickers, labels and camera phone accessories.
