Do any of you read Cathy Z's blog? I read her each week and she came up with a digital template to use to create a "year in photographs". Her pages were amazing and her asthetic is really similar to my own. Clean lines. graphic. beautiful white space. pictures. This is right up my alley. Now I don't digi scrap. I never have. Tried it once. Didn't work. but this was too beautiful. and I couldn't resist. I have both templates because..well. I got the first one and realized that I couldn't put my photos into each monthly page, which was part of the draw for me. So I went and got the second.totally digi templates as well. I know how to use photoshop (which is a big plus) and followed the instructions. So far, so good. I love the results. I love trying this in 8.5 x 11 (I never scrap that size and have had an empty album forever) and I started. Now mind you, I've only created January's first page. But I'm happy. SO HAPPY with the result and the rest of the templates will walk me through each month. I can't wait. FINALLY something I can do, something that's not too difficult (now to go and invest in more 8.5 x 11 photo paper, white cardstock, photo ink and black printer ink. YIKES!) If you are interested in getting the digi kit you can get it here: monthly 8.5 x 11 set or you can check out Cathy's blog post to see how she is using this here: The monthly (Cathy's blog post) I tell you. It's changed me. for the better. (by the way I'm using a different Scarlet Lime kit each month, what a fun way to showcase them!)
so what are you waiting for? *updating to load the next three pages, i'm having so MUCH FUN! hybrid scrapbooking where have you been all my life?
