Scrapbooking is the biggest hobby in America right now, even surpassing golf in popularity among American households. It’s a $3.3 billion industry. So it's only natural that it would migrate to the web with digital scrapbooking.
For those of us who aren't Martha Stewart, DigiScrapZ creates pre-made digi designs that you just buy for a pittance and can use over and over again. All you need is a hard drive and a design-friendly program such as Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop.
Run by three talented women, all scrapbookers and designers in their own right (and in the interest of full disclosure, one of them -- Krista Mettler -- is a friend of mine), they consistently come up with original, fresh looking designs. New packages include School RuleZ, which is handy for those scary first day of school photos. So there's no excuse for us creatively challenged Moms anymore. Drat.
Prices range from $3.00 for embellishment packs, paper packs, etc. Most “regular” kits (including matching papers and embellishments) are $4 to $7. At the top of the price range, they have ENORMOUS mega kits for $12 to $15 apiece that include tons of papers, embellishments and alphas and are created by multiple designers.
