Have you ever come across unique photo books on Shutterfly Gallery that don’t match our Shutterfly templates, and wondered, “How did they do that?” The answer is digital scrapbooking, which is an electronic form of paper scrap booking, and is created using software (such as Photoshop) instead of scissors, glue and paper.

If you’re interested in learning more about digiscrapping, Scrapper’s Guide has come up with 4 FREE video tutorials to help you get started. You’ll learn how to:

  1. Sign up for a Shutterfly account
  2. Prepare your pages for uploading
  3. Upload and adjust your pages, and
  4. Put the final book together

If you like learning more about scrapbooking and would like a designer kit and an expertly designed Shutterfly-friendly album each month, consider checking out the Scrapper’s Guide membership program called Digital Scrapper Premier and saving over 70% off store prices.

Scrapper’s Guide also offers tutorials on:

more about Susie R

When I was ten years old my grandmother gave me a Box Brownie camera.To take a simple black and white photo all you had to do was point and shoot. It began in me a lifelong passion for photography which has only grown all the more with the advent of Digital Scrapbooking. Fast-forward from 1965 to 2010 and here I am teaching and designing for What I love about it the most is that I can make our family memories more beautiful and meaningful with a Shutterfly album. Now that I am about to become a grandmother myself for the first time, I feel like I’ve come full circle. My family’s bookshelves no longer groan under the weight of the old style photo albums that were so rarely opened. Instead they regularly pick up the beautiful, hard cover Shutterfly albums and marvel at seeing themselves in print. It gives me the greatest pleasure.
