Digital Scrapbooking Ideas
Use the YourFramer™ online custom framing program to frame images that will add interest to your gallery of pictures stored on your computer. Just don't store them, arrange your images in order, adding such pages as titles, index's, route maps and other fun pages. Here are some samples of pages made using the YourFramer™ online custom framing program. The text was added using commercial editing software.
Jigsaw puzzles can be framed with any style of frame. These can be framed with a protective layer of glass or acrylic. The YourFramer™ kit frame for Jigsaws puzzles, is supplied with acrylic glass.
An alternative to glass is to "Brush Mark" the surface with Texturing Cream. This makes the image appear like an original oil painting. It also seals the surface so glass is not necessary, and the cream penetrates around the edges of the pieces of the puzzle which helps keep them firmly in place. Here is the method we used to frame our jigsaw.
You do not have to use the standard coloured mount supplied in your kit.
Room Makeover - a matter of balance!
Marilyn Edge from Park Orchards, asked the YourFramer™ Team for some advise about her plate display.
Marilyn was not quite sure about her plate display. Here we have a corner of the room decorated with Spode plates. But the one "special" plate under the light is not in balance with the overall theme. By moving the plate into the collection and adding a small picture to the same spot a sence of balance is restored to the corner.
A small limited edition print was chosen to enhance the area and match the colour theme.
The limited edition print has some blue tonings in the image , while the frame we selected was silver.
The silver of the frame blends in with the blue plates, and the antique gold of the light fitting.Two mounts were used in the picture. The outer mount is a cream/beige to be in harmony with the wood walls, and the inner smaller mount in silver/blue to match the colours in the print and the surroundings.

Framing your Scrapbooking Pages
Rather than keeping your favourite scrapbook pages in an album, frame them and hang them for everyone to see. Any frame can be used. If the page is from an album then the relief will not be too thick, so a space between the acrylic glass and the page can be created by inserting small spacers around the edges of the frame. Spacers can be made from small offcuts of Fomecore board. If your page contains bulky items then insert a mount surround on the page, after which additional spacers can be inserted under the mount.
