3 quick tips for using embellishments

Posted By Rachel B On July 8, 2011 @ 7:00 am In Photo Book Ideas | 9 Comments

You know I’m in love with our All New Custom Path photo books [1], and you know I can’t stop using those Idea Pages [2] (who wouldn’t want to look like a design genius with just one click?). But did you know I’ve become an embellishment fan too?

Here are my top 3 tips for using All New Custom Path embellishments.

1. Don’t be afraid to go BIG

This photo book maker enlarged her travel themed embellishments in Spring Break [3], and the pages looks seriously stunning. The gray-on-red is super sharp and those illustrations help tell her road trip story.

2. Frame that photo

Framing a photo with embellishments helped this photo book maker express the festivity and fun of her Mexico vacation [4].

3. Combine and complement

This photo book [5] maker combines scripted text with two embellishments layered on top of each other. The understated colors and elegant styles work perfectly together, especially when combined with the subtle green background.

Bonus tip – explore embellishment options

Don’t limit yourself to the embellishments included in your photo book style. Check out embellishments in other styles too. Here’s how.

Click on the embellishment tab, then click on “Get More stickers” at the bottom of your screen.

A dialogue box will appear. You can look for embellishments by Occasion, Category, or Color. Choose the embellishments you want to add, then click “Add to project”. They will now appear in your selection.
