Ah…July has come and gone, and I spent an hour and a half yesterday sorting through my iPhoto library, selecting a handful of images to best represent my family's month, and then dropped them into The Monthly template pages. They look like this:
This month, I'm skipping the divided page protectors portion of this project. Why? Because it's summer, and I can! Plus, I ran out of divided page protectors, so I have to order up some more!
The thing I really like about this project? Editing. Pure and simple. Instead of printing every living shot I take, I have to just say, "Okay, how can I pare it all down and still tell a visual story?"
That's the question I answer each month with this project and it never fails to make me feel good about how I'm choosing to save my photos.
Designer Digitals is running an impromptu summer sale through Friday at 6 a.m. Eastern, with 30% off templates and papers. All of my templates are on sale, including The Monthly sets.
