Making Scrapbooking Page Ideas Even Better – Scrapbook Page Ideas Come to Life
Make your scrapbooking page ideas better. Give them a little punch and add flair. Scrapbooking page ideas happen when you start to think outside the box.
If you have done any scrapbooking at all you will know that you need to layer one element on top of another.
In digital scrapbooking it's the same. You will find it helpful to open files and save elements as you go in layers in your main file. Do not forget to include your pictures! Each picture that you will use needs to go on its own layer so you can move it around to fit your design.
- Save your file as a layered file so you can change it easily if you need to. Your scrapbooking ideas will develop and change as you make pages. For lots of scrapbook page ideas just dive in and get started.
One thing that is often missing from photo album pages is text. Words on scrapbook pages specifically related to your pictures. So adding text can make your page unique.
Your scrapbook page ideas are special and your pages can be too. You can easily add fancy and creative text by using different fonts but often an interesting font is not enough. You can use Photoshop and make text that really adds to your layout. Layer text onto elements in your design or have text that adds texture and color to your scrapbook pages.
- If you use a background that looks like it might be made of cloth (a quilt, a crocheted table cloth, or a swatch of rumpled fabric) try using a safety pin element to 'attach' a paper tag element. Then layer text onto the tag
- If your background looks like wood do the same but use a nail element. Bent nails often make the page look more realistic.
- If you do not use Photoshop you can still use Photoshop tutorials just modify them to suit your digital photo enhancement program. Many paint programs have tools that work in similar ways.
Once you are done there are several ways to use your scrapbook pages. You can make photo album pages if you also save your layered files as flattened.jpg files. As.jpg or.jpeg files you can print them, send them in an email, or publish them. If you want to print your scrapbook page ideas then be sure to keep your resolution at least 250 ppi or higher so you get photo quality. Go to one of the photo book sites to have them printed and bound in a book for you. This is a great way to make photo albums that you can show off to all your friends.
