    EFFECT

  • You can print these pages on card stock or if you prefer,acid free papers from your office or craft supply store.Punch your holes according to the rings in your binder.*TIP You should make a "pattern page" to go by,when punching your pages.This keeps all pages uniform.*TIP Putting reinforcements on your pages adds life to the book.It's time consuming but worth the effort.


    You can choose the order in which your pages appear.You might not want to put all of the available pages in your book.*TIP Plan ahead before you print.The amount of pages you use will determine your binder size.There are many sizes available with clear pocket covers in office or discount stores..


    BRADY 'S FRAMES has a small selection of picture frame pages for you to print.Your pictures can be placed directly on the page if they are cut to fit the"white" area.Don't want to cut your pictures?Cut out the "white"area and place pictures behind the frames.Glue your frame page to another srcapbook page for a finished page.*TIP Use your decorative paper edgers,to trim your frame page,before placing it on a scrapbook page.This will show a printed border around your frame page.

    You can print pages from BRADY'S SCRAPBOOK section below, for a scrapbook effect.Make your own picture frames and place on your printed background.*TIP Draw ovals,squares and different little shapes and sizes for your frames.Be sure to leave an opening for the picture on the top or side.*TIP Use decorative paper cutters for pretty edges on frames and such.You may even want to use them on your cover page.Using your edgers,trim your cover page(only 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch). Choose a scrapbook page to glue your now "decorative cut" cover on.This is a nice layered effect. *TIP I've found that a glue stick is much easier to work with on this project.


    *TIP Put printed scrapbook pages between Brady's Printables, for pictures,messages from family and friends or keepsakes. I put several extras in for cards the baby will receive.Putting in a few blank scrapbook pages allows Mom to use her own ideas too.*TIP It's a nice touch,to write your own personal message to Mother and Baby to keep in the book.*TIP Buy photo pocket refills and add to your book for all those "First Year" pictures.Youcan create all types of pages, with a little imagination.*TIP Decoupage little cardbard boxes from your craft supply store,with some of the scrapbook pages.Use them for gift boxes or baby's keepsakes.Need more ideas?Check out our new page"YOUR IDEAS".Got a great idea?....send it to me. I hope you enjoy creating a keepsake for someone special.
