Transcript

  • 1. Making Memories Summer Youth College 2008 Mrs. Caryn Cuadra
  • 2. What is Scrapbooking?
    • Creating a story…sharing beyond just the picture.
    • Allowing others to feel as if they were experiencing the situation with you.
    • What do you want to share?
    • How do you want to share it?
  • 3. What do I need?
    • Special photos
    • A “book” – can be a traditional scrapbook or even a 3 ring binder
    • Paper to mount photos to.
    • Stickers, ribbon, shells, anything you can attach to your page.
    • Space to lay your things out and plan.
  • 4. Step 1: Sort Your Photos
    • This can be done by theme, subject, time (situation), etc…
    • Sort them the best way for YOU.
  • 5. Step 2: Choose a theme
    • Look at your photos and decide what “theme” they fall under: friends, family, vacation, birthday, etc…
    • Use this theme to decide background paper and extras.
  • 6. Step 3: Mat Your Photos
    • To make your photos stand out, you want to “double mat” them. That means you want to have trim around them – place them on a smaller sheet of paper and cut them out.
    • Remember to use contrasting colors to help your photos POP.
    • You can group mat the smaller photos.
  • 7. Step 4: Create your layout
    • Choose your background paper, and begin laying out your photos.
    • REMEMBER: Do not attach anything yet – you want to be sure of your layout first.
    • You can crop (cut smaller) or overlap your photos. You can place them on an angle as well.
    • You can also place smaller sheets of paper underneath your photos for added emphasis.
    • You can use a full background sheet or make your own by cutting strips of background sheets and putting them together.
  • 8. Step 5: Journaling
    • Add your story to the page. You can do this through printing or typing your ideas and attaching the information to your page.
    • Remember to mat your journaling too!
    • Think creatively – this doesn’t have to just be on the page, it can be hidden in an envelope or even tucked behind a picture.
  • 9. Step 6: Add Details
    • Now is the time to add embellishments.
    • Remember to dry fit them also – to insure you like how you’ve designed the page and to make sure you haven’t overdone it.
    • The goal is to remind you of the time you had – try not to overwhelm your audience.
  • 10. Goals for our class
    • Create a scrapbook to share.
    • Learn new techniques for mounting photos.
    • Create new ways of journaling for each page.
    • Share my scrapbook with family and friends.
