When I put together albums for my children, many of the pages are progressive scrapbook pages. Since I don’t want to redo photos that I’ve already done on paper pages, I scan the page and use it as a photo on the digital page. In many cases, those original pages are 8-1/2×11 and the albums for my children are 12×12. So then I basically have to make them progressive scrapbook pages.
These pages were created several years ago from one of my Scrapbook Classes with one of the Simply Scrappin’ Kits. So when I went to step it up to a 12×12 page, I made sure to use colors that went with that kit. I took the Basic Gray border from Simple Snapshots Digital Kit (retired) and recolored it to Not Quite Navy. I spaced two of them out to the side of the original page and then added the border from the Summer Happiness Kit in between both border and made it Soft Sky. I also used the Wild Wasabi Patterns Designer Series Paper for the background of the page. Once I had the border set up the way I wanted, I grouped it together and pasted it to the second page.
Now admittedly, my progressive scrapbook pages don’t start off with a 6×6, but whenever you change a page from one size to a larger size, it is still considered a progressive scrapbook page. Since I have so many copies of different pages to make for my children’s album, doing it digitally with MDS only makes sense and it saves a lot of time. I only have to do it once and then import into each of their albums.
Have you created progressive scrapbook pages? Just add it to a larger page and either add more photos around it or add embellishments to fill in the extra area. You can do it with either paper or digitally. MDS is a great way to do it digitally. If you don’t have MDS, just download the FREE 30-day trial and see how fun it is to use.
If you like what you see, pass it on.
