Learn how to confidently change the photo placement on scrapbook workshop pages and look like a pro doing it.

  • Discussions with the lovely ladies who joined me for Lemonade Retreat led to the focus of this online workshop. Many of you struggle with adding your photos to the designs in workshop pages.

  • Unless you print specifically for the exact photo wells on the pages, you need to adapt a little to fit the number, size and orientation of your snaps on the pages.

  • This can be time consuming and result in pages you don't completely love.

What to expect in this class

In the class, I will share several tried and tested Design Principles to help you gain confidence choosing, cropping and arranging your photos to fit within a pre-designed page pattern. I will cover…

  • Common mistakes scrapbookers make when placing photos on layouts

  • How to change the number of photos for the layout without compromising the background design

  • How to crop multiple photos, keeping some unifying dimensions that are pleasing to the eye

  • What to consider when aligning photos with paper design elements

  • When to mount a photo

  • How to use T-Square ruler

Does the class include page patterns and construction tips?

YES, I have 6 double pages I created from one, 12 sheet paper pack. You may have the same papers I used or choose another pack you have in your supplies. Alternatively, pull out some pre-made pages and try the principles on those. The video below shares a bit about the layouts and the class focus.

  • I chose the Memory Lane papers which were current at the time of designing and filming the class. They were sold by Close To My Heart.
