>Artisan Scrapbooking Software – Review + Giveaway

>I’d like to think I’m a crafty person. Really! I like to doodle and get a little creative. I can glue sequins and sprinkle glitter with the best of them. The only problem is time. It always comes down to not enough time. I can’t even begin to count the pictures that I have just sitting in folders on my computer, waiting to be uploaded, printed, picked up from the drug store, and then scrapbooked. I loved to scrapbook before I had kids, and could happily sit at my kitchen table until the wee hours of the morning until my fingers started to stick together from the residue of those little sticky dots used to affix photos. But now, sleep supercedes all other extracurricular activities. I still want to treasure those memories and display photos from holidays, special events, and birthdays, but I just don’t have the time or energy to do it anymore.

Then suddenly, like a knight in shining armor, Panstoria creates this absolutely fantastic photo editing and scrapbooking program called Artisan. Let me tell you, this program is absolutely stellar! I literally created a 25 page scrapbook in about 10 minutes using the Auto Populate feature combined with pre-designed pages. I can share it to Facebook, print it out at home, or have it professionally printed if I prefer. It is so incredibly user-friendly, and it has features that work similar to real life. Don’t like that embellishment there? Delete it! Want it moved over a smidge? Just slide it on over! What’s even better is that there’s no sticky glue residue left on your pictures! Here’s a screen shot of me working on my scrapbook:

And if you don’t read a smidge of my review, just watch this video! It’s only a minute out of your life and it shows you how dang easy it is to use Artisan!
