project life...in progress

I'm working on a more substantial project life post but part of the process I'm slowly developing includes using some pre-made photoshop templates for planning my pages. I'm doing a mix of traditional/hybrid/digital but since the beginning of time (or, since the beginning of my scrapping life, and long before I ever thought of digital scrapbooking) I've always planned pages in some type of editing program (way back when I first started...almost 10 years ago (!) I used Microsoft Picture It) before actually constructing them.

Marcy Penner has some fabulous printables for a variety of page protector styles. I downloaded them, printed them in a mini book format and bound them using this technique to toss in my purse - perfect for waiting in the car for the boys to get out of school!

Once I have a basic plan though, I need to work it out in Photoshop...adding the photos and text into the spaces until I'm satisfied. That's where these templates come in. I created these for the mish mash of We R Memory Keepers and Project Life template styles I picked up. There is a seperate png file for each of the 12 styles I have. I added a tiny margin to make sure they would fit once I printed and slid into the protectors. If you can use them, you can download here.

Also, the winner of my kit releases from this past Tuesday is:







Please email me Marty so I know where to send the files!

  19. I am so excited to find these! As far as I can tell, you are the only person on the planet who made templates for those H, I, and J pages!!! THANK YOU! I'm doing my PL hybrid too. I design the page in photoshop, print my photos accordingly, make some what nots and doodads for the page then print it all out and start poking everything in the pockets. I love this project. Thank you again!!

    1. This tutorial may help! The stap where you "clip" a color layer to the template is the same as how you would "clip" a photo to this PL template: http://crashnotes.blogspot.com/2012/08/tutorial-using-patterned-paper.html

      I hope that helps!
