”With digital scrapbooks accounting for one in ten of all photo books posted to Shutterfly Gallery, the creativity and craftsmanship of digiscrappers has really inspired the Shutterfly community,” said Kathryn Olson, chief marketing officer of Shutterfly. Because digital scrapbooks consistently top our “make one like this” list, we know our customers are interested in further exploring this hobby themselves. Together with Big Picture Scrapbooking, we are pleased to offer our customers an online resource where they can learn from step-by-step tutorials about digital scrapbooking and how to take better pictures.”

“We have teamed up with Shutterfly to launch a digital studio that will provide us with dedicated space to teach and enjoy classes for beginning digital scrapbookers,” says Stacy Julian, founding partner of Big Picture Scrapbooking. “I’m thrilled to have the power and experience of Shutterfly on our side. They are dedicated to storytelling and supporting scrapbookers in general with comprehensive online services and quality printing solutions.”
