Project Life, Week Two + a free layered card download + video tutorial on how to use the free card
OBSERVATIONS: I take very few portrait-oriented photos.
This became evident when Aidan said, "Mom! Get a shot of this outfit." And that's when I caught myself turning my camera on its side. What? You can do that? Who knew?
Project Life has turned me into a landscape photographer. No, I don't mean landscape a al the Ansel Adams variety—I mean I take horizontal photos. All the time.
Even the shots I size down for the 3 x 4 pockets are mostly horizontal ones that I crop into a vertical format. This realization isn't the end of the world, it's just a real change from photos I used to take, which were mostly vertical in nature.
Because of this, I had to grab one of the different page protectors from my Big Design Pack, specifically the Design D page protector. It's all going to work out just fine, however, because next week, when Design D is my left facing page, I happen to have vertical Week in Review cards to do my weekly card. Whew. Now that's lucky!
Here are my pages for the week:
This week, I did a screen shot of my 2012 training record at DailyMile.com and sized it to fit onto a 6 x 4 canvas. Also, see the cards with the Instagram logo? That's a free download I'm offering today for those of you who want to capture your Instagrams in a nice, square format.
And here's a very quick video showing you how to use it:
Moving right along…
I'm just not used to using the other page protectors, but I really like how this page turned out.
I used some of my templates, and changed up some of the fonts and sizes on the small cards in the center. This is one of my Tiny Text Templates.
And this is one of my Tiny Photo Templates.
I did make the type a little smaller, and moved the text boxes in from the edges a little bit to accommodate for the rounded corners. If you own any of my products, don't be shy about tweaking them a little here and there to meet your exact needs.
