How to Make a Heritage Album for Mother’s Day - Part 2


 We talked about making a heritage album for your special matron for Mother’s Day 2016 in a previous blog post. In this blog post, we’re going to talk the specifics of creating a Mother’s Day heritage album!

1. Choose the Book

This is going to be your mom, grandmother, or sister’s brag book, so you’ll want to choose something elegant that suits her personality and likes. While the contents of the book are what make it so special, the foundation is equally important! Consider the size, paper type and durability of the album.

2. Create the Album

Now that you’ve chosen the book you want to use, it’s time to create the heritage album. You’ll want to group photos together using an organised approach. For instance, you could lay them out based on timeline, or you could group photos of each family member together on separate pages. Take your time choosing your images and uploading them to create a beautiful heritage album.

3. Personalize Her Heritage Album

Now that you’ve chosen her album and uploaded/placed all of your desired photographs, it’s time to personalise it even further. Add colour with backgrounds, a suitable typeface and clip art-type imagery and add captions to each page to put the finishing touches on her heritage album!


The time put into creating a heritage album for your matron this Mother’s Day will be well spent, we can assure you that! Check out RapidStudio’s albums and more to find the perfect heritage album.

Tip 9 : Aligning and Spacing in Rapidstudio

We often want to create a collage of photo's as a page design. Most of the time we are not totally confident in creating this type of layout in Rapidstudio, as you have to be accurate in your aligning and spacing of pictures. In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics.
I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later.
First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …

RapidStudio and CraftRoutes got back in touch with their inner artist in Pretoria last week.
CraftRoutes, a specialist arts and crafts shop in Pretoria, invited Paint-by-Shadow to be the flagship product at their annual exhibition in the Kolonnade Shopping Mall, Montana Park.


Our largest size (80 x 120 cm) canvas was placed on the stand and throughout the 6 days of exhibiting, the canvas was painted by myself (product developer), Sue Peddle (owner of CraftRoutes) and all the sales staff from the store.


The King Protea image was developed for Sue and her shop, which reflected the mood of Heritage Day.  This image also show cases the Proudly South African product Paint-by-Shadow truly is.




Have you always wanted to be an artist but thought it was too difficult?
We have developed an innovative new product called “Paint-by-Shadow. Paint-by-Shadow is a great starter product that takes any of the initial apprehension and unknowns out of the painting process.



When you…
