There are a few simple steps in creating a scrapbooking page that will make you much happier with your finished product but be sure to remember do not stress over the page this is to be fun- be flexible and enjoy yourself
1.Choose the theme of the page- a trip to the zoo, first day of school, etc
2.Choose the photos you want to use that represent the theme of your page
3.Sketch out a basic layout for your page -where will things go, where will things fit and choose a color theme
4.Crop your photos to remove unwanted and unnecessary space
5.Mat your photos- this will make them the focal point of the page
6. Select the embellishments you want to use- the stickers, braids,ink, stamps, etc.
7.Start arranging all of your elements on the page like a puzzle. play around with them in different arrangements
8. When you are happy with the way it looks walk away from it for a few minutes if possible and come back and look once more before glueing it down.
Now you have finished a page....if your like me you have boxes of photos ......so on to the next !
