Today I have a new process video where I show you my process of editing a photo in Photoshop using a 4×6 photo as a weekly title card for my Project Life scrapbook for Week 32 + a free .psd downloadable file for you!

I love to use my iPhone and edit through Photoshop each week for my Project Life layouts. It saves me time, I get the image exactly the way I like, and is convenient for me to do it all myself (including printing). Weekly I use:

  • iPhone and/or my Nikon DSLR camera to take photos
  • iMac, iPhoto to import my images
  • Photoshop to edit, resize, and text/design Project Life pictures and elements, and save my designs – Note: You could use Photoshop Elements as well to do these simple tasks!
  • HP Photosmart (A646) 5×7/4×6″ compact printer with HP photo papers

In this video I take you through my process of:

    1. Import/export a photo from iPhoto into Photoshop
    2. How to easily set the size and crop an image to 4×6″ to print at home
    3.  How to use the free template file (download this free .psd file here:
    http://www.createscrapbooks.com/shop/4×6-date-overlay-template-photo-title-card-project-life-date-digital-psd-photoshop-elements-file/

       to use as an overlay to create a photo title card with date. or, you can use this file to simply print the date on cardstock (or the Seafoam Edition by Becky Higgins vertical title card – prints right on the small white label on the bottom).

    I also started a new weekly Project Life video process series on YouTube to help me keep on track with my own PL scrapbook, share and connect with you, and hope it gives you some great ideas and motivation for your own Project Life and scrapbooking in general. I have a few new videos up on kit clubs I’ve been receiving, too! I would love to hear your comments and you can subscribe on my channel to see the latest Create Scrapbooks videos in your subscription feed at YouTube here – http://youtube.com/createscrapbooks. My goal is to share what I am doing, what has been working for me for my scrapbooking, share some files I have created that I feel are useful for my everyday scrapbooking processes. The next video later this week will be the Project Life layout I created for Week 32! Terri Bradford Create Scrapbooks

Hi everyone!

This is Terri Bradford from CreateScrapbooks.com, and if you missed the last video and blog post – I started my own Project Life scrapbooking video series on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/user/CreateScrapbooks.

Here’s the second video of the weekly series I created – Project Life Series – Week 31 (2013) Layout Share and Scrapbook Process.

I hope you subscribe and comment so we can connect. Click on the little red subscribe box, comment under the video (or here on the blog) and tell me what inspires you.

My notes from this week: I am *loving* using the July and August Scraptastic Kits, along with my Studio Calico, Elle’s Studio, and Paper Posies Kits in the mix. Makes things so much easier to open a fresh exclusive kit and put elements easily together for Project Life spreads. I decided to add an H 6×12″ Becky Higgins page protector right in the center of the full 12×12″ D protectors to expand my photos and journaling this week. It helps to have these types of protectors to accommodate the over-flow (and/or orientation) of photos and journaling elements.

As you can see, even during the summertime my small family has STILL been knee-deep into high school happenings for my son… like marching band, AP classes (and me toting around my teenager to/from school, etc.) Summer went WAY too fast this year. My son is a Junior now and I am trying to get a few of the last week’s of summer Project Life layouts completed. Those will be coming up next in the video series.

Thanks to everyone who has stopped by (excited to see my friends from Germany, Australia, Canada, and more!), downloaded a file or two, sent a message or made a comment, subscribed to my YouTube channel, and has connected with me during the scrapbooking journey! Much creative love to you all. See you next week (or sooner) with week 32.
