Adding pictures to scrapbook pages is easy. It can require a scanner but usually pictures are taken on our phone and are already in a digital format.
So what picture do I add? Why, The Crazy Cricut Lady picture of course. I know you don’t want a scrapbook page about me. LOL But many of you think of yourselves a a crazy cricut lady (or gentleman). Or maybe you want to include a picture of a Crazy Cricut Lady project. I would love to start a scrapbook of my followers! Send me a picture of your page and I will send you a crazy cricut lady button. I will make hundreds if necessary!
I only show the sheet that was cut to 11.5 by the cricut. Another sheet of 12 X 12 paper goes under this one to fit into a scrapbook. One of the 12 X 12 cardstock sheets can be patterned paper but not both. It is just too confusing. If it is the top sheet the pattern has to be small and light so that the writing shows up. The other embellishments can be any paper. I used paper from my scrap bin. Since the theme of my web page is pink, that is the color I used. Use your favorite colors.
Cutting the Crazy Cricut Lady Page
A little bit of prep work is needed, like selecting your pictures first and moving the text to the appropriate spot Cricut is wonderful; for writing on your page and adding titles. For best results, use a fill in font for the title (here is the link to my fill in fonts) if it is drawn or use a cut out font if the title will be paper. I used my font CMZ Zebra and a red marker to make my title.
The electronic picture can be uploaded and saved as a Print/Cut image is Design Space. If you need help with uploading pictures, I will add a section at the end of this tutorial on how to do that. If you need to know how to do Print/Cut, there is a tutorial included in Design Space- There is Nothing to be scared of videos here. While you are there check out my other beginner tutorials there.
Design Space cuts the top page to 11.5 X 11.5 inches, making a 1/4 inch border around the whole page. (I haven’t included the bottom sheet in this tutorial.)
The other parts are easy assembled because they are only two or three layers and you can see them in the picture above.
After assembling the embellishments, add them to the base of the page as in the picture or arrange them in your own way. Your imagination is your only limit!
Your Crazy Cricut Lady Scrapbook page is done and you know how to add a picture to your scrapbook pages
Uploading a Picture to Design Space
I included my picture in the Design Space file. It is not in the SVG file. Inkscape doesn’t work well transferring that many color layers into Design Space, (but if you really want it I will send it to you.) If you want to upload your own picture, that can easily be done.
Click Open. If it is not an SVG image (most wont be) then click complex. Remove anything that you don’t need. Your picture, in this case. should be a rectangle and there wont be anything to remove. Now, click continue. Save the image as a print/cut image and it will be placed in the list of recent uploads. Now open this project and click upload. Select the image and insert it into your project. Finally, size it appropriately for this project.
