I need some help from the veteran scrapbook people …. for I am but a lowly neophyte.
My plan is to put together a scrapbook which will include the growing up years for all of my four children. I plan on self-publishing this scrapbook in a notebook form. It will not be a “coffee table” book. I have scanned most of my kids pictures as well as many of their “important” papers such as birth announcements, school play programs, report cards and any newspaper clippings from this small town we had lived in.
For the organization of my photos (that is much more of a job than most people think), it has been recommended to me that I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 2019 software. I can do this …. but that leaves me we with layout, presentation and the artistic portion of the scrapbook. I don’t do those areas well.
This is where I need the help of this forum. Can someone recommend to me a good hardcover “how to” manual for scrapbooking ….. or maybe a book that would provide the basics of organization and layout. I would not be averse to a book which would provide creative scrapbook ideas for significant events.
And lastly, if there is a scrapbook software available that could make this job easier, that would be most appreciated.
Thanks for any help that could be provided for a 69 year old guy who does not have that artistic touch.
