Digital Scrapbooking – Top 5 Apps
Scrapbooking is like a sticker book for adults. Printing the photos, gluing and sticking all the pieces together, and even finding the right backgrounds can be a challenge. The digital age comes to the rescue with apps for the iPad and Tablets that let you scrapbook without gluing your fingers together.

Martha Stewart CraftStudio
iPad – Free
Martha’s CraftStudio app isn’t just for scrapbooking – it’s for anything to do with craft paper. Create cards, invitations, scrapbook pages and more… for free. The only downside is the limited sets of themes – four – that come with the main app; all other themes are in app purchases.

BlackBerry Playbook – Free
Yes, an app for the playbook! When Scrapbook first came out, it was touted as amazing and easy to use. With the consistent updates to match the 10 software line, it hasn’t disappointed – everything from the clothesline feature to the drag, drop, rotate and resize interface is perfect.

A social app designed for sharing via Facebook and email. Luckily, it has a password function so that you can protect the scrapbooks you love. The free version comes with limited capabilities, but it’s worth a try to test it out. There are also “extensions” for this app… one makes stickers!
