OBSERVATIONS: Another week of digital Project Life is completed, and I'm still really loving this process. A lot of you have said to me, "I don't understand why you haven't always done it this way, considering how much you love to use your computer to scrapbook."
I guess part of the answer is that because of my work as a designer, I really wanted to take the creative process off of my computer, and finish in with paper and glue. Ergo, hybrid scrapbooking.
I don't plan to throw away all my phyisical scrapbook supplies. At least not yet.
One really cool thing about doing it digitally is being able to mix up the page designs with ease. I like the idea of switching up the page protectors, but sometimes don't like having to follow through with the following week. When you're designing digitally, well, that problem is eliminated. So this week, I changed up the design.
Here are my pages from Week 19:
I felt like I had too much stuff this week to fit in. I kept deleting things, rearranging things and making edits. Part of why I had so many images was that Aidan went to prom last week, and you know how parents are when there's a prom involved.
In fact, I decided to design a 6 x 12 template set (coming this weekend to Designer Digitals) to house more photos. Here are the two inserts. I put them both on a 12 x 12 canvas to be printed.This is what the file I will be printing looks like:
I'll just slice it down the middle, and voila—they'll be ready to pop into the 6 x 12 page protectors.
Yes, prom was rich mine of material.
The shot above is dropped into a new 6×4 layered template set that comes with a see through journaling block that you can adjust the opacity, depending on the photo.
My favorite story of the week is this one:
Believe me you. I'm grateful for the relationship we have with our 17-year-old daughter. Every single lucky day.
Note: 8.5 x 11 digital Life Basics templates are coming to the store this weekend. They'll be on sale for 20% off through the weekend.
