Easy Digital Scrapbook Pages

Create a Two-Page Digital Scrapbook Design

Design by Emilie Ahern

We all have songs that touch us or remind us of an important time in our lives. Take a cue from Emilie and document one of those songs. Lyrics running down each side of the scrapbook page hint at their meaning in Emilie's life.

1. Open a new 24x12" canvas. Open and drag a brown cardstock image to the new canvas, placing it flush with the left edge. Duplicate the paper for the right half of the scrapbook page and move into place.
2. Open patterned paper and resize it to about 11.5x11.5". Drop a torn-edge template on top of the patterned paper and erase the excess paper below the tear line. Merge the edge with the paper and duplicate. Position each half on the layout canvas.
3. Draw a white rectangle to serve as your photo mat and journaling spot. Add a slight drop shadow. Crop your photo into a square and add it to the mat. Type the title and journaling.
4. Add stitched elements. Use a dingbat font to create the flourish embellishment that separates the two portions of the title, adding a line to the end of the symbol and coloring them to match tones in the patterned paper.
