Hello Week Twelve!
I went with double-wide photos on both spreads this week. (You have to say double-wide with a thick southern accent.) Love how it looks. I sized the images at 4x10, leaving a few inches to add patterned paper. I also added circles and type to the images in Photoshop. The font is a freebie called District Thin.
All of the journaling cards are from the Project Life Clementine Core kit.
Love the little images of Maggie. Like a little French baby. Both of the girls are really getting into dressing up, especially when it involves playing with "Mommy's stuff." I tinted the black and white image of Maggie with a little purple to match patterned papers. I'm a matchy-matchy kind of gal.
I couldn't resist blowing out The Hunger Games a bit this week. Jim and I made a very decadent Friday afternoon trip to see it. We both loved the books so much, so we were a little hard on it with some picky pot things, but we still enjoyed it. I for one wanted more Peeta! More cave scene! I also had to include the image of my grandmother that I blogged about last week, love it so much.
PRINTING PHOTOS AT HOME | Some of you have asked how I print my photos, so here's how I do it:
- I do all of my photo editing in Photoshop.
- If I'm printing full Design A pocket-sized photos, I size everything at either 3x4 or 4x6 with the resolution set at 300 dpi. I do this before adding text or graphics.
- Then, I open a new 8.5 x 11 document (also at 300 dpi resolution) and drag finished photos onto it. I try to group as many photos on one sheet of paper as I can so I don't waste it. I also align the images to make trimming easier. For example:
- If you hit Print and Photoshop asks if you'd like to proceed since some clipping may occur, click proceed to retain the correct dimensions of your photos.
- I use a paper trimmer to cut the photos out and corner rounder for the edges.
- For information of my printer and paper, check out my FAQ page.
Hope that's helpful!
