Jessie's nearly three.

The simplest scrapbook pages can be eye-catching if you draw attention to the photograph. Placing your subject near a window will give you natural light and catchlights in their eyes. I have creatively cropped this photo for maximum effect and used blending techniques to give it a luminous hue.

Peter Rabbit

Adding a children's storybook illustration to your scrapbook page is so easy. In my Advanced Digital Scrapbooking classes you will learn how to add an image like this, seamlessly. On the right hand side of this blog you will find a link to high resolution Peter Rabbit images available for download.

Credits: The background paper is Jen Reed's from the Scrapper's Guide April 2007 Premier kit but I've recoloured it to suit my layout. The ribbon is Photo Wraps No 4, frame from Vintage Frames No 5 and overlay flowers from Botanist No 9 all from Katie Pertiet. The flower sticker is Lynn Grieveson's from Amelie .

Heritage Albums

Preserving your old photographs in a heritage album is so easy when you have digital scrapbooking skills. This is my grandmother when she was only twenty five and my mother at three. The blended background paper and metal brooch with reflected glass overlay are two of the projects we cover in the Advanced Class.
