Hey everyone,



Can I get some quick input on the color combinations, shapes and scrapbooking items to make picts look really great? I love scrapbooking, but I'm not really talented with the above mentioned! Thanks for the input.

Hi Chrys...I usually lay the photos out that I want in the layout, and find a common color to use as a popper color for the page...it's a great jumping off point. It doesn't have to be something major in the picture, but somehow it draws it all together if you can find a common color. jmo! Good luck to ya.

If you want easy to put together, beautiful pages, you can consider forming your pages around the gallery ideas in a scrapbook magazine, the example pages at a store (you can take pictures at most), look at a supply companies project gallery, take a class at a local craft venue, or buy a kit from a professional designer. I create and sell custom kits, based on the type of photo and your personal preferences. You can also subscribe to a monthly inspiration kit service and receive a kit each month chock full or coordinating papers, embellishments and ideas. You can check out my website at JustYesterdayScrapbooks.com I have a few galleries there, or if you have more specific questions on where to buy what, or what things to put together, feel free to message me! I love to help new "untalented" scrappers find their inner artist :)
