Making Memories

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