Copying a page from a comic book would be a fun challenge for a very unique scrapbook page. I don’t recall where this came from, but this is how it all got started:
You’ll have to message me to get the blueprint in a usable form but this is what it looks like.
Once you have this on a page, you can insert photos, change some of the photos to paper, add any embellishment and add some word bubbles. (There is one glitch: even with a phone call to CM, I have not been able to figure out how to make a unique photo shape so once you have completed the page, you will need to flatten and trim the photos that overlap onto a nearby photo. This really bothers me but I have an idea of how to fix it although it would be quite involved. I think I could create my own shape and use it as a transparent mat – maybe I’ll get around to trying that some day.)
To make the word bubble: Insert tab, shape, from art kit, Geometric, select bubble of your choice, fill: white, line color: black, line width: 3 pt. Create. Tweak the size and ratio as desired.
To add text: Insert tab, text, create, font: Lafayette Comic Pro. To format text: Format text, text shape, select shape same as word bubble, double click to select.
To make the text fit in the bubble: select text element, then bubble element, arrange tab, make same size and line up horizontally and vertically.
If you try this, I want to see how it turns out. In fact, I need to try it, too!
I have since figured out how to create my own shapes. See “Getting into Shape.” For this application, the lines would all be straight so it would be super easy to create.
Hi. Just found your blog. Love this blueprint! Could you possibly send it to me in a file for creative memories SBC 4.0 use? Thanks!
