Digital Scrapping and A Gift Idea....

I am so glad you have joined me! Today, I am guest designer on Bug Bytes. Join me there for a great time!

For my son's birthday I decided to give him "scrapbook" of his two children. He is, however, not into bulky books or fluff. I saw a stand at Michael's that held 8x8" scrapbook pages and allowed the pages to be used as art. A 50% off coupon and it was mine. But here is what is his:



The title page says, "A Child is the Greatest Joy, the Ultimate Blessing." It is so true of these two babies. The stand holds multiple pages, so it can grow over time. Pages can be used back and front and flip over the rings to the back (so the art can change!) Here are two more pages:

I Scrapbook for MacBook Pro
(digital scrapbooking software)
Photos of choice
Digital papers of choice
Digital Elements of Choice
Photo/Scrapbook Stand (Michael's)
mat photo paper
Home printer

  1. Assemble each page in the software.
  2. Print at 8x8" size.
  3. Trim to size.
  4. Embellish if desired.
  5. Add to sleeve of stand.
  6. Display.
I can think of numerous ways to use a stand like this. Celebrate a wedding, new baby or anniversary. How about displaying a favored trip? What can you think of?
