I can't find a category this really fits in, so I thought I'd post here since this is where I spend all my time...

Does anyone here scrapbook their cruises? I'm just getting into scrapbooking and I'd love to see some pics of other people's pages!! Just wondering...

I"m happy to say that all 21 of my cruises are scrapbooked, and I love
to relive my trips thru them. If you go over to Cruise Memorabilia you will
find some other scrapbooking threads. Lisa

Haven't scrap booked really, but have done slide shows with Photo Show set to different music. They're fun.

I love scrapbooking! I do digital with Photoshop Elements and have them printed on 12x12 paper. Here are a few from our cruises. I still have lots more of photos that are waiting to be scrapped!

Great pages! I am a digital scrapbooker, and you will sometimes find me by the pool working on my pages on my laptop! I use the Creative Memories Storybook Creator Plus program. I have them printed and bound in individual books. My Voyager Cruise from 2 years ago is done in a 12 x12 format. Of course, I own a business through Creative Memories and love using the discount for myself!

I am an avid scrapbooker, and have scrapped all my cruises. There are such cute items available to scrapbook cruises. Stickers, paper and die cuts, Oh My!

At the photo area on the ships, they even have a pack of scrapbooking goodies you can buy! It has paper and stickers and so forth. Features some logo stuff, some of the ship names, etc. I didn't get it, but it was pretty cute. Just had more stuff I wouldn't use than stuff I would.

I also did the scrapbooking class they offered onboard. I was on Enchantment and apparently a lot of their class materials had wandered off, so the pickings were slim (they were reordering, so should be okay now). It was still fun, though, as I got to talk to fellow scrappers and so forth. We had a good time!

I love to scrapbook my cruises. IF you don't do the digital thing be sure to go to the photo gallery and look for the photo books and scrap book papers and stuff. They have a pak that has 250 pieces that is really good.
I tried one time to do the digital thing but was using print shop program and found it slow and cumbersome to work with may need to try another program. I loved your pages!

Loved your pages. Personally I have never tried digial scrapbooking. I used to do the paper scrapbooking all the time I even have a whole room dedicated to my supplies but since I started working full time 3 yrs ago I just don't have the creative energy left in me. I still buy supplies from time to time with the hopes that one of these days I will get back into it. Maybe after this cruise LOL! {I tell myself that every cruise }

I also scrap my cruises the old fashioned way. It took me 6 months to finish my book for our last cruise and it was either 44 or 46 pages long

I had every intention of scrapbooking our wedding pictures and then our honeymoon cruise pictures....but that was 3 years ago!! (I've never scrapbooked and don't even know where to get started.)

I love the digital scrapbooking idea though - very cool. I didn't even know you could do that!

For those of us with limited time, one good thing about digital scrapbooking is that it doesn't take as long as traditional scrapbooking! I'm planning a digital scrapbook when I return from my Alaska cruise next month. Depending on time, I may or may not do a traditional scrapbook as well.

I did a lot of digital scrapping when my son was a baby. And for those who do digital scrap, buy a digital frame that does the slideshow and design pages for the size of the screen and it's like a scrapbook that turns pages all on its own! I make daddy/son pages for a father's day frame for my husband's desk at work.

Naw. I'm a picture taking fool and actually a very creative/artistic person, but I don't have the time for scrapbooking (nevermind the storage space, lol). I must say, this digital scrapbooking really intrigues me! I had no idea it existed. Can anyone point me to a good starting place on the web to learn more about this? I have a million questions.

If you are familiar with photo editing software like Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro you can create pages with the layers. It really gives the most freedom of how to build a page exactly how you want it but it also takes the most skill. The other option is the multitude of digital scrapbook software available for purchase. I found this review of them.. http://scrapbooking-software-review.toptenreviews.com/. Personally I use Paint Shop Pro for when I digital scrap, or to create embellishments for my traditional scrapping.

Thank you so much Francesca. I have always wanted to learn Photo Shop/Paint Shop, but my current budget won't allow it, lol. I had a feeling those would be the best bests for digital scrapbooking. I will be bookmarking the link you posted for the software!

I have some old copies of Paint Shop Pro including version X around here somewhere that would work on XP. Maybe I can try to track down the CD down for you. And you are close enough I could even teach you how to use it

If you've ever seen the Bo-Bunny board books that spell out FAMILY or FRIEND and other such words, I have found a lady on e-bay that makes them and will do any word you want. I ordered a bunch that say CRUISE and am intending to scrap them as little souvenirs to all my friends and family traveling with me on my next cruise.

I just wish the cruise lines would go to a digital option for the photos they take while you are on the ship. I would be willing to pay $100 or a little more for digital access to the photos - on a cd or something. Thats about what I spend on photos anyway.

One thing I did that really worked well in my last digital album was to scan in the photos and postcards, sea pass etc to include on my digital pages. My album cover is a sepia toned postcard print of the ship in Miami's port. Professionally taken - but since it is stretched out to a 12 inch by 24 inch shape - it looks amazing. If anyone wants a link to that scrapbook, post here and I will e-mail it to you.

I'm fairly new to digital scrapbooking, but two sites I've found that I like so far are www.blurb.com and www.mypublisher.com. Both offer free software downloaded to your computer. You may not have as many choices as far as page backgrounds and embellishments, but they are both easy to use and the books look very professional . . . definitely worth checking out!

I scrapbook the old fashioned way and have done all three of our cruises. I use mostly all Creative Memories material and usually fill one album per cruise over capacity. I take WAAAYYY too many pictures but I love going back and reliving each cruise. On Freedom, I bought the scrapbooking kit (I think it was $25) and it was completely worth it. I used almost everything in the kit and what I loved about it was the stickers were geared towards our itinerary. Definitely check into it the next time you cruise.
