Fun Links

Here are some fun web tools for creating digital scrapbook pages. I've had this on my blog for a while but I thought it was worth expanding and adding some tips and examples. This is a work in progress.
wordle
make word clouds
tip: Blend them into your background paper for a subtle effect
kuler
chose a color theme from photos
tip: Make a collage of the photos you want to use on a page and let kuler suggest the colors that are common. It is a great way to unite the photos to make an attractive, cohesive page.
dafont
free fonts
indentifont
finds a match fonts
poladroid
makes aged looking polaroids
Rollip
online tool with 40 photo effect filters
shape collage
create a collage of photos
tip: The free version has a few limitations
  • it makes a watermark that gets bigger with each attempt so try to get it right first try and place an embellishment or extra photo over the watermark.
  • the image is a little small so you would have to combine a few collages if you wanted to fill a whole page.

generates newsclippings (jpg) from your text

transform a photo into a watercolor painting
