What do we love? SPORTS! Why do we love them? BECAUSE THEY’RE FUN!

That’s one of the many rally cries my son’s ultimate team trotted out this season and every time they did, I grinned from ear to ear.

God, I love ultimate.*

I also love documenting stuff so I came up with an idea for doing something with some of the nearly 1,200 photos I shot during the recent high school season.

One little 6 x 4 album with some of my favorite shots of Cole. Each tournament gets its own title page. One journal card recap. Aw yeah… you can FEEL the simple, can’t you?

No need to write a freaking novel here. Just one card to recap the season. Done and done.

I used my Epson PictureMate to print all of the photos with white borders. I love the visual link from the borders to the the whites of the titles.

(Especially that one!)

And you have a  photo album of highlights.

Because it’s so simple, I’m sharing the layered Photoshop templates with you for free.

You could use these templates for just about any simple summer story. All you need are some 6 x 4 pockets and you’re ready to roll! There is an instruction PDF in the digital package.

Enjoy!

*Ultimate is an amazing sport. If you have a child who wants to try something new I cannot say enough good things about this sport. You can learn more at USA Ultimate. Or if  you want to watch a highlight reel to get an idea of what it’s all about, click here. I also recommend this article from the Bay Area Disc Association, “What Ultimate Does for Daughters.”

    Thank you, Cathy! I love the simplicity. I have so many photos from a recent trip to visit my granddaughters and have been trying to decide what to do with them. Now I know!!

    You rock, mom! What cool thing for Cole to have.

    (This post is also perfect timing in my house! My 15 year old son has just started getting interested in ultimate, looking things up on YouTube and telling me about it, so I tell him that one of my favorite blogger’s son does it and show him the pics you’ve shared… and now this! Can’t wait to show him after school!)

    Well, I think you just saved my life… figuratively speaking, of course! 🙂 Yep… my kids are almost done with college and I’ve yet to finish a book from their high school soccer, let alone Shannon’s college soccer… oy. I have a few 12×12 pages started (months and years ago!) and just can’t get going. I think you just solved it for me… especially since my journaling (cough, cough…) will be negligent ‘cuz I can’t remember that far back! hahaha! Anyways… thanks, my friend… I can’t wait to get some pics printed and a book (or ten!) done! (insert thumbs up emoji!)

    My husband of only four years has recently been officially told he has early-onset memory problems (we had known for some time, of course, but I had been holding out hope for some other medical problem which could be fixed). This summer it feels vital to me that we make as many happy memories as possible that we, then I, can hold on to. I’ve been thinking about how to capture them, but felt overwhelmed by even the seemingly simple Project Life or Shutterfly-style book. This will be perfect. Thank you for creating this, Cathy, and thank you so much for your generosity in sharing.

    Cathy,
    I wanted to thank you for these templates. I used it as the foundation of a 40 page album of our trip to Hawaii. I might have changed it up a bit, (6″x9″ size, some multi picture pages, some 1/2 journalling/1/2 picture pages, etc) but the essence is your templates. It really helped me focus on putting the pictures and story together. Thanks for getting the pictures out of the computer, on the layout, out to the printer, in the album and into the hands of my family.
    Fan-for-life.

    thank you very much! Love the template.
    just wanted to add: My DH played ultimate back in college (and still does only no horizonals anymore!) when almost no one knew what it was! This is our 25th Anniversary month so it was a looooong time ago.
    We also love Frisbee Golf and freestyle.
    Thanks again.

      Oh Roberta! That is so great to hear! Yeah, layouts when you’re in your 40s or 50s might not be the best for the bod! lol.

    Thanks for this. I like the simplicity of the album – means it might get done. Your ipod template (square photos on a 8.5 x 11 page) has been used over and over.

    Just skimmed through two shelves of crafty mags/books and have a small pile to keep – both of your books made it through. Any chance of them being available as ebooks?
