Quick Tip—Documents
by Jen White

In the days of traditional scrapbooking, if you wanted to add memorabilia, such as a graduation announcement, to your scrapbook page, you’d just glue it on. Digital scrapbooking, however, doesn’t offer cut and paste. So, what are your choices?


I recently attended the graduation of my little brother and wanted to include the announcement on my scrapbook page. Here’s how I did it.

  • Take a photo of the document.
  • Add the photo to your scrapbook page.
  • Change the Blend Mode to Multiply or another mode that works.

What should happen is that only the words from the document will remain. Easy peasy.

    I started scanning memorabilia as a photo so I could include them on digital pages. I have not thought about your multiply blend mode idea to just get the words. Gotta try that. Thanks for the idea. You are just so clever!!
