Paislee Press just released a new digital kit called Messy Beautiful and I am slightly obsessed with the pretty color palette. There were also photo templates in this release which made it super fast to put together the spread for this week.
There is a lot of white space but I think it compliments the softer colors. As usual I started with the photos from the week. I tag these in Lightroom, then bring them into Photoshop where I open the photo templates and drag them in.
I had a few sets of photos where I wanted to use more than one to tell the story and fortunately some of the photo templates contain multiple photo layouts so that worked out well.
I had a longer story I wanted to tell but realized I didn’t have any 4×6″ pockets left after I printed the photos and I didn’t want to cut the words down. So I instead put the text on a 4×6″ canvas in Photoshop, added the painted heart from the Messy Beautiful kit (so it would look like one 4×6″ card), and cut the card through the middle to fit into 2 3×4″ pockets. I love how this easy solution turned out.
For the filler cards, I simply put the digital word stamps onto the 3×4″ canvases and printed them out directly onto cards.
This spread was done in roughly 2 hours (that’s fast for me!) which is a big reason I love using digital products!
