Of course digital scrapbooks are nice but I prefer something I can hold in my hand. Unfortunately google stories are not set of or printing. I tried printing directly from the webpage one frame at a time. This took a lot of time and did not have the best resolution.
I ended up taking screenshots from my desktop and phone then printing those out. Somehow the resolution was better and it saved time because printing from a webpage is a lot of steps on my computer.
For this project I choose a 4x4 mini album, so I could print 4 pages on a piece of letter paper or one page on a 5x7, in case I wanted it to sit outside the page protector.
Of all the little stories I had populated I was most enamored with the story of our Disney trip last year. I have scrapped a few pages here and there but never did anything with the vast majority of pictures.
This is a look at my photo sheets after printing. I really love how the stories use a blurred photo to hold the date.
Because this is a mini I had to add a variety of textures for fun. I took a couple sheets of patterned vellum and used those.
I used one sheet for photos, patterned side down. This way the photos could keep their translucent quality while having some interest on the back.
I also used vellum on a sheet of printables, pattern side up. I used an eraser to smudge away the ink from the raised part of the pattern. This a really fun way to personalize printables.The edges weren't perfect and some turned out better than others.
I will show you my completed pages here over the next few days.
Mini Scrapbooks is a new blog series I am starting. I have a ton of mini albums that I start. But not many that I finish. An attempt to blog about them regularly so I can follow through on these fun little projects. You can see my other mini book projects here.
