Family History Album Class Title Page

Jennifer at The Scrappy Genealogist organized a group of Geneabloggers who want to incorporate digital scrapbooking into telling their family story.  Jessica Sprague offers self-paced, online classes in various topics surrounding digital scrapbooking. It is her Family History Album Class that is our guide for this project.

Week 1 of the class covered gathering and organizing the documents and photos that we would like to feature in our album. Our first assignment was to complete the Title Page which I am sharing below.

Included in our class fee were digital downloads of background papers and embellishments. Jessica provided a title page template for our use, then we were instructed to use the the papers and embellishments provided to make the page our own.

The biggest challenge in this assignment for me was working with a layered template in Photoshop Elements. I've been using MyMemories for my digital scrapbooking and truly appreciate how easy it is to use after working with Elements on this page. I am hopeful that by the end of this class I will know my way around Elements and feel comfortable using it regularly.

Be sure to visit the sites of the others taking this class and see how they apply what they have learned to their Family History Album.


  1. Love it! I can't wait to see how you put yours together since you are definitely more experienced at digital scrapbooking than I am. Till next Sunday!

  2. Jenna, Moving the title strip to the bottom was a great idea. It makes it look less like a wrapped gift. Every time I look at a new layout, I feel prompted to go change mine again. Uh oh. This could be dangerous. :) Jen
