First I asked Patti to send me some pictures so I could digitally scrap them. Then I had to learn how to use the scanner to capture them at 300 dpi. Once that was done....Oh what to do....I have used an 8x8 book from Oriental Trading. The pages came finished gloss white.
All digital layouts are done in Photoshop Elements. I used soft gloss paper to print on. I wish all of you could see this in real life.
Each page also has three deminsional elements to give an extra visual element.
The spine of the book has a white silk cord running down the middle with white and black tulle cut into strips tied onto the cord. I also used touches of white silk organza and red satin ribbon for that special touch.
