I wish I had better scrapbooking skills... :(

I'm trying to make a multi-page card/small booklet and it's not going well. Thankfully I haven't actually cut any paper yet!  I'm good at designing things on the computer (like invitations!), but this layers of paper thing is not going as well for me. 

Any tips? I kinda know what I want it to look like, but do you just print out the text like 20 time in different sizes/fonts to try them? Luckily I'm planning ahead so I have lots of time to get this done (not needed till early May) but it's seriously bothering me. 

Edited: If it comes out well I'll post pics of my first scrapbook-esq project Yes If it doesn't turn out well I'll have to figure out something else instead Embarrassed

Re: I wish I had better scrapbooking skills... :(

  • If I am printing out text then I usually work in Word or Publisher and make text boxes. I create the boxes for the size that I need and then work with the text font & size in the box. That usually saves me from having to print so many times.

     This is really good advice.  I'm the type who guesses and checks about 18 times before I finally get it.  :)  Good luck!  Let us know how it goes!
