My First Scrapbook Pages Didn't Look That Good
Seriously folks, take a look at this scrapbook page:
template: lisaminor_rackettyscrappityB4_8x10; font: arial
Very plain. At least I remembered to date it. Since it isn't labeled, the idea behind it was that it was the favorite things my oldest son liked to play when he started 2nd grade. Yaa. Not that good huh? It's ok, I don't mind. I have come a long way. I went to a lot of scrapping sites, looked at a lot of pages and then decided what I really liked. Things like making sure there is more text on the page to help me remember what it is about... the exception being if it is in a brag book where the text might be elsewhere. I like a few more embellishments on the page. Not alot. Here is one of my more recent pages from my sis-in-law's wedding:
template: noreimerreason_template_58, paper & elements: Beach Bliss from RRD, font: Monotype Corsiva
It's a year later and the difference is noticable. Take the plunge. Realize practice makes perfect. Ok, not perfect but definitely improvements. More on what software was used, where to find paper, elements, templates and what the terminology means is coming in future posts. Until then, realize you aren't alone and it doesn't happen over night for most people.
