Step 2: Establish Gift Recipient Profile.If you are designing this photo album for yourself, you can skip this step. This step is very important if you are designing custom made photo album as a gift. One of the major problems when designing a photo album gift is that people forget that they are designing it for someone else.This is just a precaution to ensure that your photo album design reflects the sense of style of the gift recipient, making the photo album gift unique to hisher personality. Profile information could be as simple as their age, favorite color, or style.
Also, if you want to make your own design, photo book companies often provide a design software, which allows you to put together a simple album layout within minutes. Often the software has an integration into the ordering process, so after designing it is a piece of cake to upload your photos and submit your order. Wedding album makes usually don't provide this feature for two reasons: often the companies are too small to develop their own software and in most cases those programs are not sufficient to create the sophisticated layout design required for a real wedding photo album.
If you're still not sure which type of album to buy for your first scrapbook project, you can try asking some knowledgeable friends for help. You can discuss what you're looking for in an album, and they can pitch in with suggestions or advice of their own. Asking someone for their opinion is never a bad option in this case.
After buying background paper, you should go look for cardstock. If you can afford it, it would be better to buy cardstock in bulk, rather than individually. Cardstock are great for a variety of purposes. Scrapbookers use them for mounting photos or adding some accents to photos, plus they can also be used to add dimension to pages. You can check out a few of my other articles for more ways to use cardstock in scrapbooking.
