By: Barbara White

Are you stuck for ideas for gifts for those who have everything?

How about creating a unique Christmas themed gift with digital scrapbooking?

Scrapbooking on the computer opens up a treasure chest of possibilities discovered by the touch of a mouse.

Capture those special memories with a digital scrapbooking program and create personalized gifts that will be appreciated for a life time.

There are a number of different computer programs available, some even free, that can take the memories that you have captured on digital photographs and create a gift that can easily be quickly? personalized for each person.

There are many advantages to digital scrapbooking as an alternate to the traditional paper scrapbook craft.

Traditional scrapbooks are made by hand using a variety of materials such as special paper, letter cutouts, and decorative embellishments, glues, pens etc. Typically traditional scrapbooking can be very messy and is quite unforgiving, should you make a mistake. It takes a lot of time to create a traditional scrapbook page.

Digital scrapbooking on the other hand is cheaper, cleaner, and relatively easy, as it is all done on the computer.

When creating a traditional scrapbook page your table is cluttered with supplies as you try to find that perfect creative combination.

Once you start, it is a lot of hassle to have to pack all your supplies away, especially, if your project is not finished.

With digital scrapbooking you can pick it up and work on it, save your work, and come back to finish your project at your convenience. If you make a mistake you simply click the undo button. No more trying to carefully pry off a treasured photograph or design that you have glued in the wrong place.

Another advantage to digital scrapbooking is that you can use multiple copies of photographs or embellishments very quickly and easily. The time involved in creating a creative memorable display can be easily invested over and over again. Just copy your design and personalize it for another person by changing the photographs, the outline, colors, and embellishments without having to start all over again.

Why not make your? friends and relatives? a calendar full of memories that will last all through the following year. Create a basic template and find photos of people and events that will remind them of happy times all year long. Every month create a different theme or have photos of family members spanning years gone by

A gift such as a calendar can easily be sent across the miles digitally and save mailing costs. Alternatively you can send the digital files to a local printer who produce them professionally and these can be mailed as holiday gifts.

Did you share a special event or celebration this year? Why not create, through digital scrapbooking, a keepsake of that time. There are special kits that can be purchased online that can make this project very simple and yet looking very professional.

Start thinking of the many possible gifts that you could create for family and friends through digital scrapbooking for this year. I'm sure you have been wondering how you can use all those digital photos that are stored on your hard drive.
