2014 Digital Project LIfe - Jul 13 - 19 - and a Freebie

Sharing a single page today:

This page uses my Pocket Template 2 once again. I was able to pull this page together in about 20 minutes, and the only reason it took that long is because I spent some time cropping up the movie ticket stubs. Not worrying about papers or cards makes this process really efficient. I just drag in my photos, clip them to parts of my template, and I'm done.

This month we started weekly family movie nights. I'm hashtagging photos of the movies on Instagram with #whittakerfamilymovienight so that I can simply click the hashtag and find all the movies we've watched. I thought adding the hashtag to the pocket with the movie ticket stubs was a perfect touch. 

The "road trip" stamp I used on this page is from Scotty Girl Design's This Year 2014 Vacation Brushes.  I like how the stamp adds just a bit of something to the page of photos and text.


For the photos with the text in the page above, I used a set of templates I created that I'm sharing free with you all today. There are four templates in PSD format - for use in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. You drag your photo layer into the template, above the layer that says "Drag Photo Above This Layer." Then clip the photo to that layer (command+G on a Mac, or Layer-->Create Clipping Mask). Then you can edit your text, flatten the file and either print (for hybrid Project Life) or drag into your digital template.


Project Life is an amazing and simple scrapbooking system designed by Becky Higgins. While I often use products created by other designers, I attribute my love of pocket style scrapbooking to Becky and Project Life, which is why I always refer to my pocket pages as Project Life. For more information, please check out Becky's website. If you're new to the blog and you'd like to scroll back through my past few years doing Project Life, you can find all of my Project Life related posts here.  In 2014 I switched to the digital Project Life format, which you can find products for here.
