Using Quickpages: Introduction
Quickpages are pages that are made for you by the designer, or their creative team. All you do is add your photos and any text you want on the page. You can buy quickpages as single pages, as a set, with or without matching kits and you can even get them free. You can get LOTS of them free as they're a good way for the designers to advertise their new kits. Keep an eye on Digi Scrapping Freebies on Facebook if you'd like to collect free ones.
They're the easiest way to create big albums in a hurry. They're also the easiest way to have other scrapbookers think you're lazy or somehow not doing it right. Forget them! I've made about 4000 digital pages and at least 1000 of those are with quickpages or MyMemories templates (which are a different animal with its own tutorial). I'm very proud of those pages and my family love them. That's all that matters. Every hobby has its snobs who want to do everything the most difficult way thinking that somehow proves something and digital scrapbooking is no exception.
We have several tutorials on quickpages. They're all in this beginners section because beginners can master all these techniques but take it slowly and go through the tutorials in numerical order. Experienced scrappers can whizz through them, although you might want to make sure you go through all of them in case you miss a trick!.
Try a few simple pages first to get the hang of it then move on to more complex pages with more photos.
These tutorials are written for use in My Memories Suite. You will be able to follow them for use in Memory Mixer and My Digital Studio, the screen shots just look slightly different to your screen and the function boxes are on the left hand side instead of the right.
Here are the tutorials so far:
1) Simple pages with one photo
2) More complex pages with more photos
3) Tips for adding multiple photos quickly
4) Manipulating Photos
Using quickpages for "multiple frames - one photo" pages (see the design ideas HERE)
Making a quickpage "Your own"
There will also be tutorials soon on using pre-decorated backgrounds.
A "few" examples ...
This slideshow is all the quickpages that I've tagged as such in my Smugmug account - and that's nowhere near all the quickpages I've made as I'm behind with my tagging!
