Your family is growing and changing everyday. Maybe they are getting closer to walking, to going off to college or even getting married. Each passing month brings its own story, which you want to document, share and remember for years to come. Capture a month-by-month snapshot of each of your family members in this adorable, customizable 4x6 mini album!
The task of just finding the time to record a year in your family's life may seem daunting, but with easy prompts and guides, you'll be creating wonderful heirlooms for your family in no time!
Snapshot mini album is broken down into different style of pages. The left page has space for a photo (there are a few designed without photos as well), and each .psd file contains enough paper and embellishments for 5 different page designs (for a total of 20 completely different pages).The right page of the album contains space for their name, as well as a set of fill-in-the blanks that relate to things happening in their life right now, such as current favorite food, show, book, and so on. Think of how much fun it'll be to look back through these pages in the future, and be like, "Oh yeah! That was your strawberry jam phase!"
Beside each snapshot, you'll see initials for the months of the year - simply move the highlight dot to the right one and you're done! Each of the .psd files is already set on a letter-sized sheet, ready for you to clip in your photo, add in the snapshot text, and print! You can even pre-print the snapshot pages and hand-write them - then fill in the photo page later.
This is THE class to discover how easy it can be to create a legacy album that your family will cherish for years to come. We'll divide up the mini album into month by month pages, including journaling prompts for each section. But that's not all! Our class kit includes enough files to create 20 different photo spreads, which can be mix and matched month after month!
For this particular project, you will need:
Any version of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements
A binding tool, binding rings, or a pre-made 4x6 album
I recommend that you take my free Course 1: We've Just Begun class before enrolling in this class. It'll give you the following skills you'll need:
Opening, saving, and closing Photoshop documents
Adding photos and using clipping masks
Adding type in a single line
Printing from Photoshop
If you are not already, the Snapshots Mini Album is going to make you a Scrapbook addict! By the end of class, you will have created your first snapshot album, and I'm going to guess it won't stop there! Maybe you'll make one telling the story of your child, a parent, even yourself! This type of story telling is what I'd love to share with you. Register now, and I'll see you in class!
