Having said that though, I do have a few digi kits loaded onto my computer and there are some great tutorials out there for anyone that wants to give it a try. I managed to throw together a couple of pages in not a lot of time thanks to the direction of my friend Pam.
So if you love the idea of scrapbooking but can't see yourself getting into the paper variety for one reason or another (funds, room, time) then I would recommend you try digital scrapbooking! I must admit if I didn't already work with paper products in such a big way I would probably be more inclined to jump in with both feet.
And where do you start I hear you ask? Well it just so happens that my talented friend Pam (mentioned above) has started selling her gorgeous digi kits and sketch kits online! You can check out her stuff here: DESIGNS BY PAM
And in the spirit of sharing, here are a couple of my (first, so be gentle!) digital pages :)

I can't complain as I did find some time to do a few cards last night and just thought I would share them here.
Supplies: Stamps by My Favorite Things, Paper by Kaiser, All card by Stampin'Up! in tempting turquoise, pretty in pink, whisper white, and basic black. Ribbon is also SU! I coloured the image using faber castel pencils and used gamsol (odourless mineral spirits) to blend. The background was done using the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing template and I matted the image using my new Nestabilities templates.
This card was created for a Featured Stamper Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. All I changed from the original was the image and the papers.
Supplies: Stamps: My Favorite Things, cardstock, ribbon and paper by SU! in whisper white, chocolate chip and pretty in pink. Image was coloured using the same technique as above.
Supplies: Card, ribbon and ink from SU! in tempting turquoise, pretty in pink, basic black and whisper white. Paper by Prima, Stamped image is from My Favorite Things, cuttlebug embossed backgrounds again, and Gamsol and pencil technique for colouring.

I also received some parcels this week, including some new small stamp sets from Inkadinkado. I forgot to take a pic but will share the cards when I have actually made something with them.
I also finally ordered some Nestabilities and they should arrive in the next week or so ... have been waiting 6 months to get my hands on these!! and also an order of the gorgeous new My Favourite Things stamps (think cupcakes and ice cream sundaes!) as well as a small Stampin' Up! order. So do you think I am stalking the postie much? LOL
And now I am off to do some more cards as I actually have orders for two sets of cards in coordinating boxes which will be given as birthday presents. I always feel stressed when actually making cards for other people and selling them .. you know what it's like, wondering whether they will be good enough and whether the recipients will like them! Oh well, I can only do my best and hope they are happy with the results.
Have a great weekend!
