Many printable downloads have a quote or a thought that would be appropriate to use on a scrapbook page. By using one for a page, you are able to use a great deal of space on your page without having to think about it too much. Just think, someone else has done all the design work on the printable! They have selected the colors, the fonts, the layout, the phrase … ALL of it! If you like the way the printable looks, you are ready to go!
Have you seen this saying before? “She turned her can’ts into can’s, and her dreams into plans.” What a powerful reminder of determination! As many daughters as I have, and as many women as I know, I thought this would be a great one to use for today’s Artful Adventures project!
One of the first things that came to mind, when thinking of what scrapbook page to use this on, was my daughter’s college graduation. She decided to go back to school and earn her college degree. She did so while working full time. It was a lot of work, but she did it anyway. I had just a few pictures that turned out well and I still had never done anything with them. Actually, instead of looking at the pictures and only feeling happy about her achievement, I would look at them and become irritated about how awful they turned out. The pictures were a reminder to see about a new camera that would take better pictures in low light!
You will notice that the page is rather simple. It includes:
- 2 Photos
- 1 Printable digital download
- Background Cardstock
- Partial sheet of print paper
- Journaling strip
- 3 Brads
Such a little effort to finally have a wonderful memory on a page!
This example uses the printable as it was. However, this particular one from Stampin’Up! comes with stamp/brushes that can be used in any program and the colors can be changes as you like. You have the option of using the file as is, or you can change the colors in appropriate software.
I have one more idea for this weeks’ Artful Adventures in printable digital downloads! Until next time, Cheers to YOUR creativity!
