Photo Collages California Style

I've been going to town with the collages!

I'm working with a podiatrist to design some photo collages for his patient waiting room. Since his office is in northern California, I thought collages of some of the local sights and places of interest would be appropriate and fun for the patients to look at.

I've got ten made, and more planned. I don't think he'll use all of them, but I just can't seem to stop! I'm using my own photos, almost exclusively, so in addition to creating these for my client, I am also scrapbooking my own photos from trips that my hubby and I have taken. I can't wait to see these framed and hanging in the doctor's office, as well as smaller versions slipped into my own family album.

I'd love to know what you think. If you'd like to see more collages click here: www.webajeb.com/DigitalScrapbookPages-CollagesByWebajeb.html.

Here's another one that I like a lot:

I can make collages of places you have visited (and these look GREAT framed and hanging on the wall), so just let me know if I can create one for you. What wonderful memories.

They make great gifts, too.

Digital Scrapbooking New Baby Photos

One of my favorite scrapbooking subjects has to be new babies. I just love photos of the little beings so newly arrived from Heaven that they probably still remember what it's like. I think that's why newborn babies often look so wise, almost as though they are old instead of brand-new. They know stuff we can only imagine.

My niece recently had a baby girl and has been emailing photos. Each time a new batch arrives I quickly pop them into a collage and print the pages out for my album. I don't have a lot of time for my own scrapbooking right now so the collage templates have been working out great.

I'll be sharing more collages, with totally different photo subjects, in the next day or so. Stay tuned!

Hybrid Albums - Mixing Paper and Digital Scrapbook Layouts

If you've been hesitant to try digital layouts because you still have uncompleted traditional (paper) scrapbooks, this post is for you.

Paper scrapbook pages and digital scrapbook pages mix very nicely within the same album.

The album pictured above shows two pages from my own personal "Book of Me" album. The page on the left is made with paper supplies, the one on the right is completely digital, and they look great together!

When I switched from traditional to digital scrapbooking about two years ago I still had a dozen albums in various stages of completion. Yep, that many. Scary, I know. So, anyway, I hung on to all my paper supplies because I thought that I would eventually go back (ha ha) and finish those albums, and I thought only paper layouts would be appropriate for those albums.

Wrong. I quickly realized that because every scrapbook page stands on its own (or with its companion page, in the case of a two-page layout), it doesn't matter whether a layout is created with paper, or designed in Photoshop, they can co-exist (and get along just fine) in the same album.

So even if you are a paper scrapbooker, I can help you get caught up in your albums with custom-designed digital layouts. In any size. I can even create 11.5" by 12" layouts to fit the old-style Creative Memories album pages; you won't have to trim the edges.

What size album are you struggling to keep current? Let me help by providing custom-designed digital layouts that will fit perfectly and look great!
