Scan and Enlarge Postage Stamps for Scrapbook Pages

Design by Sande Krieger

To make the cover for the hinged flap on her page, Sande first attached a few canceled stamps to a piece of paper, then scanned and changed them to the desired size. She used image-editing software to print the title and photo on the stamp image. She created the "San Marco" title by reverse-printing onto a second sheet printed with the stamp image and cutting it out.
