Digital scrapbooking is not just for the computer desktop anymore!  Nor is it just for your typical layouts to be printed out for your albums.  We have taken it one step further here at A Cherry On Top to show you how you can make "printables" as gifts for others or keepsakes for yourself!!!


Some of the kits used for this  reveal are shown below:



Here is what our Digital CT members created as PRINTABLES with those and other kits!

ORIGAMI CARD / ALBUM by FairyMouseMom (Egle)


"I made this origami card / album to give to my parents as a mini gift for Mother's Day / Father's Day.  It consists of pictures from our trip to Lithuania almost 4 years ago.  They can take it with them and show my great uncle what I have been doing lately!"

LUGGAGE TAG SCRAPBOOK by bamablue (Glenda)


"I am patiently waiting for an adoption referral of a little girl from China. I made this mini scrapbook to send to her so that she can see pictures of her mama, her big sister (Jei Jei), her home, her pet birds, etc. The luggage tags are a perfect size for little hands and all kids love ribbons! And, the self laminating tags protect the pages from exploring mouths!"

8x10 (2007) YEARLY CALENDAR by MamaK321 (Kristi)


"A few years ago when I'd had portraits taken of the girls, one of the extra options was to have a year at a glance calendar printed with their photo and it made a lovely gift. A few weeks ago my dad called up and reminded me about that calendar asking if I could possibly swing somehting similar with my digital talents. LOL Being the good daughter that I am, I said sure... with absolutly no clue how I would make a calendar. A few weeks later I find THE perfect digital item. I put the calendar together, designed the digital page around it and printed it as an 8x10. You could also print smaller to fit in your purse or notebook."

I {HEART} DAD T-SHIRTS by janello (Janell)


"These are little shirts I made for my boys to wear on Father's Day using Digital Scrapbooking products. I designed my digital image and then printed them out on t-shirt transfers, then I transfered them onto the t-shirts! So EASY!!! I can't wait to snap pictures of my two ds(s) wearing these and then scrap them using the same kit I created them with."

"The first ATC I made was for my son of our poochie who crossed the Rainbow Bridge 8 months ago.  The second ATC I made (using a template) is to be printed for my DH to keep in his wallet!  These will be printed out for the recipients when I make some more I don't want to sparingly use my matte photo paper."

"After completeing the album on the pc, i printed it out and folded it up, and "voila" ... I have an album.  This turned out so cute and it was very easy to make."

"This is acute matchbook I created for the digital reveal on 5/18/07.  I printed the matchbook cover on white cardstock...printed all the pages on photo paper...then embellished with brads, ribbon and prima flowers!  It turned out pretty cute.  I made mine a little bigger because I wanted to make sure the pics were good quality.  The actual digital matchbook kit is 1.75 in x 1.5 in. in size."
