Make a Grid-Based Digital Scrapbook Page

Design by Amber Ries

Amber combined elements in soft, distressed colors to record the memory of her daughter's love affair with a favorite toy.

1. Create a new 12x12" canvas in your photo-editing software. Insert a dark background or create your own. Use the rectangle tool to create six boxes to house photos and journaling. Each box will be on its own layer.
2. Create clipping masks by dragging photos and digital papers onto your background, moving them a layer above the rectangle you'd like each to fill and using the command CTRL+ALT+G (or CTRL+G in Adobe Photoshop Elements).
3. Insert text boxes for your title and journaling. Insert a title image near the bottom right of the scrapbook page and a flower border on the left. Add drop shadows to all elements for realism.
