It’s the middle of February and I have finally figured out how I want to do my Project 365 layouts for 2014. Last year, I was enamored by Instagram and used one of my InstaWeek templates for all my layouts. This year, I decided that I did not want all my photos to be the same size. During my week some pictures are more important than others and not everything fits nicely in a square. My solution for this year is my new Project 365 Template Set 4.
I always print my Project 365 layouts as a photo book so there is a distinct left and right hand side to these layouts. This is my week one layout and a left sided layout. All the dates and the journaling are left aligned. The photo that I wanted to feature is our family photo with Minnie before we got on our cruise ship.
This is week 2 and a right side layout. All the numbers and journaling are aligned to the right. In this layout I featured a very large photo of my family after our Color Run 5K.
I want my photos to be the stars of my Project 365 layouts so I created a Muted Paper Pack to use with my Project 365 Template Set 4 templates.
The paper pack contains 14 papers, 7 seamless chevron papers and 7 coordinating solid papers. Here is week 3 and 4 as shown in a two layout spread.
You can see in the layout above that the paper is seamless. You can’t tell where one page ends and another begins in the middle of the layout. For week 6, I started out using one of the templates in Set 4 but manipulated the squares and rectangles as I needed for my layout.
To learn how to do this manipulation, you can watch my YouTube video on that subject. Note that for these templates, my grid was sectioned into 16 units per inch.
You can also use these templates for layouts other than Project 365! Creative team member Miranda created this layout of the day that her son met a Dutch Astronaut!
