I admit it. My Australian album from 2005 is half completed and sitting on a shelf. I have no idea when I will actually complete it. It is a traditional album, started prior to Creative Memories release of StoryBook Creator Plus.
I went to Australia again this year and I was determined not to let the same thing happen. I am happy to report that Australia 2009 is complete and for those of you on Facebook, the entire album is available.
I used a simple approach. I started with autofilling the basic black template. I then modified the pages as needed to fit my photos. Next I replaced the black background with pages from the Creative Memories Discover Power Palette. Finally, I added journaling. Most of the journaling was taken directly from Wikipedia. With traditional album making, this album would still be on the list of things to do.
I love your simple approach. Now, as soon as the Mac version is released, I’ll be showing off my own Storybook created books.
I use a variable of the simple approach. First I use a blank page, then I arrange the pictures I want on that page and the next page and so forth. Then I will go back and add the paper, embellishments, journalling and also crop if necessary. I like the idea the pictures are there and ready for me to embellish. Kind of like a Power Layout. SBC3 is wonderful. I am going to try your way also. Thank you
