This creative tutorial shows you how to create a handcrafted Halloween Scrapbook page with all the traditional elements like: Layered Photo Frames, Ripped Images, Fabric Embellishment, Halloween Stickers and Ripped Spooky Lettering.

Launch Rip Studio
Open the folder labeled Halloween Scrapbook Page. Keep it open to the side so you can grab the images easily.
You can create a photo frame using a Paper Layer the same way you made the purple paper background, or you can drag and drop in a pre-made photo frame. This example is to show you another way to create one.
In the Halloween Scrapbook Page folder locate Photo-2_FPO and drag and drop it into Rip Studio (In Step 7 we will show you how to update the layer with a different photo.)
To Replace the photo in a layer select the layer labeled Photo 2 FPO copy then drag in Photo 1 FPO (from the Halloween Scrapbook Page folder) and drop it on the thumbnail on the end of the Background Style.
NOTE: There are two ways to add your photo the the scrapbook. First is to drag and drop the photo on the open application. If you add them this way the settings will go back to the default ones and will require you to set them again. If you add the photo using the Background Style it will retain the settings, however you may need to resize the picture if it is a different size.
NOTE: These files have transparent backgrounds and were designed this way. If you want to make your own, use an editing app to remove background then save the file as a .png or .tif
Finish up the composition by adding text.
You have made a digital handmade scrapbook page with all the qualities of a traditional one.
Email it to your friends, or create an event and post it.
