Easy Digital Scrapbook Pages

Decorate Digital Scrapbook Pages with Dingbats

Design by Candi Gershon

Candi turned a bowling-pin dingbat into a digital scrapbook page accent for this simple design about her little pinheads.

1. Open a new 12x12" canvas. Using the texturizer filter, add a canvas texture to the white background.
2. Open a red digital paper file and crop it to .5x12". Drag it onto your canvas, duplicate, and place both strips in the top third of your page.
3. Crop your photos to size and place them on your scrapbook page as shown. Add drop shadows to the red strips and photos.
4. Add digital title letters, stitching, a tag, and a photo turn. Type your subtitle and journaling. Using a sports-themed dingbat set, add the bowling ball and pins accent. Use a downloaded action or your later options to give the dingbat an embossed effect.
