Scrap booking Starts from the heart..
A Scrapbook is a personal statement about what is important to you in your life. It is like your personal style showing through on every scrapbook page you design. This is one funnest projects that lets you tell your history and feelings in your own words. Through pictures, words, poems and your personal creative touch. It is a way to bring joy to you and those around you who happen to see your Scrapbooking talents.
Scrapbooks can be a very creative way to show off photos in various creative formats. From photos of amazing vacations to family photos and you are on your way to creating and sharing your most personal experiences. Not only does the book act as your personal signature it is something that can be past down from generation to generation so everyone can enjoy family memories. Plus you can show off your scrapbooking talents
Using photos in interesting ways in your scrapbook can be a very creative experience. You can make them small or large and formal or informal, whatever mood suits you best or the mood of the picture. Creative photos strategically placed in appropriate ways, and framed or embellished using your artistic talent, turn your pages into a amazing adventure down memory lane for the whole family to enjoy.
Make sure to get a scrapbook that has a binding that will fit additional refill pages. There are most likely photos you will want to add. Some scrapbooks have CD and storage pouches. Use top-loading page protectors because you want to protect the entire scrapbook page from fingerprints and accidental spills or accidents. The photos will then also be safe from wear and tear so future generation can enjoy.
It is very important to pick an overall theme for each scrapbook. Example would be a sport theme and you can show case all of the pictures of your kids or loved ones participating in various sports or sporting events. It helps to organize your pictures by dates and times so the scrapbook reads like a story in time.
Don’t be scared to use your best photos because they are the heart and soul of the book. They link the past and present and record your life experiences all in a convenient book . Your décor is the embellishments that you add to these memorable times of your life. (Hint) always make additional copies of your photos this can really help during the scrapbooking process because you never know you might want to use a snippet of that photo elsewhere in your book plus you should always have a backup just in case the photo becomes damaged.
By cropping or cutting your pictures into different shapes, you keep your book from appearing cluttered. It can help you achieve a professional and creative layout. There will be some photos that are not meant to be cut. These probably include older photos that you may not have negatives for.
When matting a photo on card stock you get to choose the color that compliments the picture. The single greatest way to emphasis the effect of the picture is by the mount you use. Resize the photos appearance by changing the physical dimensions of the mount. You can create photo collages from selected parts of multiple photos.
Creative photos mean it is not just the photos that standout, but the presentation is the creation. You can turn the photos into gorgeous works of art with ribbons, gift paper, and a stream of artistic talent. Have a unique presentation by finding patterns to print on the mounting of the photos. Then of course you can use an ink pad and stamp and embellish the photos background mount.
