Creating a scrapbook page in Xara Xtreme
Xara Xtreme has many templates in the Clipart Gallery, including newsletters, cards, letterheads and many more (the trial includes a small example set).
In last month’s tutorial we showed just how easy it is to customize the templates using a newsletter as an example. This month we’re using a rather more unusual scrapbooking template.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with scrapbooking, it’s basically about preserving personal and family history in the form of photographs, printed media, and memorabilia contained in decorated albums, or scrapbooks. There’s a huge scrapbooking community and in recent years digital scrapbooking has taken off as scrapbookers have started to use software to create fancy page elements such as photo frames or headings, and latterly creating the whole page on the computer.
Xara Xtreme is a good choice for scrapbooking because scrapbookers value the ability to experiment quickly and easily in a non-destructive way - so for example features like Themed Colors are worth their weight in gold. So we’ve created a short tutorial that demonstrates a couple of these features and shows how you might customize one of our scrapbook templates to create your own personalized page.
