Here are a few pages from Mia's Digital/conventional scrapbook; I thought you might find it helpful to see my approach to this type of HYBRID scrapbooking where both digital and conventional methods are used.
I used a Recollections Photo Album designed to hold a 4x6 photo on each page with some space dedicated to journaling/notes. I removed the protective plastic designed to hold the photos before creating my own backgrounds for each page.
The square photos are 2x2. I placed six photos on a 4x6 in Photoshop (I created a template for this), then printed at Sam's Club & cut them out. I also printed my own printed paper background on regular bond paper and cut to fit the album page before gluing the photos and some embellishments.
"Outfitting Mia" border with text was created in Photoshop to fit my page dimensions then printed on white cardstock. After I cut & pasted the cardstock to the album page I glued the photos to it and
some arrow diecuts with bows. I also placed some text and borders directly on the photos. Easy peesy, really!
The film strip has 3 photos. I created it in Photoshop to the dimensions I needed to fit on my album page, then I printed it as a 4x6 and cut it out. Some embellishments (and a photo or two) are attached with dimensional foam. And some photos, where the color really clashed I turned to black and white (or just desaturated a bit). There many little touches you can apply thru simple Photoshop processes. I hope this inspires you to want to learn more about it.
You need to be my neighbor.
