Digital scrapbooking papers

Recommended Posts

Hey girls,

 

I am starting to digital scrapbook a few things for gifts and am looking for a deep solid red paper. I figured somebody around here does digital scrapbooking and could lead me to some good places to get background papers for free or really cheaply. Often I find that I will like one paper out of a download pack of like 6-8 papers, and it costs $8.99, which I'm not willing to pay each and everytime I find one paper I like.

 

Where do you like to get your digital scrapbooking downloads from? Does anybody have a red or deep red paper they'd be willing to share with me?

 

TIA!

good thread Maura! i pretty much halted all my lumapix projects for this reason - b/c i can't find nice background papers that are a bunch of $$. can't wait to hear the responses! :)

Try The Best Scrapbooking Supplies On The Web - Two Peas in a Bucket in their digital section. Lots of papers to choose from and ranges from .99 - about 5.00 for kits. They also have free papers and kits to download.

 

Another section which I refer people to is their digital tutorial section which gives you a lot of information on how to do these things on your own.

maura, also one thing i do is if i see a cool section of a picture i've taken, like the dale chihuly ceiling at the bellagio, i use that as a background. you can crop a section of a picture, like some pretty flowers, or the beach, or i even did ones of just the blue water of the pool at dougs moms, and the beach sand from when we got married, and resave it as a picture, then just drag and drop and set as the background canvas. morgan even suggested to set the opacity (like a watermark picture) at 72%, it looks really cool.

If you are working in PS or PS elements and have a paper you like but is the wrong color, you can change it by using Image>adjustments>hue/saturation and then moving the sliders to get the colors you want.

 

It won't work if the starting color is black but other than that you can play to your heart's content.

i usually use a picture for a background, like abbie mentioned.

 

when i do want a paper, i've been getting it from lumapix. i have 20 credits for upgrading so i've been using those. I'm not sure that i could share it with you. i think they are stuck in lumapix.

 

I've seen links to good free sites. i'll look for them...
