Photos, Stories and Scrapbooking

Remember These Moments

I captured the focal photos on Kate’s last day of preschool, the day she told me that I don’t need to miss her when she goes to school next year because she can still spend the night with me. For this page I decided to combine the photos I captured that afternoon in the park with other photos that tell some of her preschool story. Some of them I scanned from a little picture book that her teacher had created for each child and other photos, I had captured with my camera. With Anna’s new Hipster Plume Template Album No. 3, creating a two page spread documenting preschool memories couldn’t be simpler.

Place template 4 on the left and template 5 on the right.

Note: I replaced one square frame on the right with a copy of the smaller square frame.

Clip photos to fotoblendz masks and add Adjustment Layers as needed.

Note: As I have previously explained, I use Adjustment Layers rather than duplicating a photo and changing it’s blend mode. I also used a brush on the masks to darken areas to accommodate the photos I used.

Duplicate photos and clip to stains. At the bottom of the Layers Panel, place a photo across the page gutter. Add an inverted mask and brush back in enough to extend the scene.

Clip photos to small masks and adjust as needed.

Note: I blurred the faces of the other children in two of the photos.

Add title and blue buttons.

That’s it! The hardest part was deciding which pictures I wanted to include and what I to write.

    Love the photos used with the fotoblendz, but most of all, love the WHITE background; makes the subjects standout. Thanks, I’ve been wrestling with what to use for an album I’m doing and after seeing this, solved! Less complicated and pictures stand out!

    • I use a couple of different solid white papers because I want my photos to standout! You can’t go wrong with white. Bring in color with transfers or elements. Thanks for the reminder!
