    Would you do it?

    I have a very dear friend that I converted to digi scrapping () that calmly announced to me the other day that she was going to re-do all of her 3D layouts into digi layouts using the same look as before. She said that she would keep a few of her 3D pages but the rest would go digital.

    I can't even fathom the work...... I have over 16 albums filled with 3D layouts!!

    Would you convert yours?

    Wow, that would be a lot of work! Even though I had only done a couple of albums using real supplies before I converted to digi, I can't imagine redoing them in that way.

    I think I'd like to reuse some of the photos to do updated versions, but my style is likely to have changed so much that I'd keep the paper ones to see how trends have changed. Recently I was looking for some traditional supplies for a project, and realised how many things have changed in the 5 years since I last did paper scrapping.

    And well done on converting your friend to the fun side!

    I can see merit in that if she wants to reduce clutter. But maybe it would be more efficient to scan them all instead?
    I have a few very chunky travel albums that I intend rescrapping. As part of that process I want to add in journaling from my travel journal and scan in the memorabilia I collected. But that is about 20th on my list of scrapping projects!

    I did redo one album. It was our trip to New York, and I did the redo so each of my sons would have a copy and it was easier to make one in digi like the paper and have it printed twice. I have re done a few other pages in digi-but I can't seem to get everything I have scrapped, much less go back and redo what I've done. Now, if I ever were to get caught up...

    Imagine the possibilities...and Happy, Happy, Happy!

    I have redone a few pages, only when I've been inspired. I couldn't image redoing several albums.

    I would never take the time to redo pages.(unless I totally hated them) Although I like my style and digital so much better now....then was then and that was the mode I was in. I so enjoyed creating all of my paper pages, I would never be able to throw those pages then you would have both pages and wouldn't that defeat the purpose???

    I wouldn't take the time to redo pages either. Just can't imagine all of the work. Besides, I am behind as it is.

    No way! I can't imagine how long it would take, and then I'd be even further behind than I am right now!

    I was formulating what would do as I scrolled down . . . and then I saw Linda's and just decided to say "ditto" to what she said!!
    I am so far behind now, that I cannot imagine taking on a huge project like the one you describe . . . I would need to become a hermit and stay in front of my computer 24-7.

    I just don't think I could part with those paper scrapped books. There are so many pieces of memorabilia in them that bring back so many memories.

    Heck, no! Especially not if I wanted them to have the same look, why bother?? I sometimes like to look at my 3D albums and touch all the little things I put on there, they are here to stay

    No...I wouldn't redo them. I have early digi pages that I almost cringe at when I look at them, but I won't redo them either. They are part of the history.
    LOVES it here!

    I would just scan and print them, then toss the lumpy bumpy original. No way would I redo all them! Yikes!

    I am not going to convert all of mine, but I might re-do some of them in the near future. This year I re-did my very first digital album (which was a Disney trip in 2007) because my first digital layouts were so darn offensive to look at (ever heard of a color wheel, Sarah?) I couldn't stand it any longer.

    The expense is what would hold me back. I really don't like my early paper albums but I guess it's the equivalent of looking at your first car and thinking how dorky and outdated it is, because fads follow in scrapbooking and design just like they do in fashion, home decor, and architecture. So in way the design is a memory in and of itself.
    Equipment: Canon T2i (550D) with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6, 55-250mm f/4-5.6, 50mm f/1.8, and 400mm f/5.6L lenses
