Step by Step and a Coupon Too!

 

Happy August Y’all!  Can you believe school is starting soon and the summer is almost over?  I feel like we just hit our stride, and things are changing again. 😊  CTM Robin here to bring you another Step by Step post where I’ll be using Liz’s fabulous Big Photo Templates 7.  

I think every album needs to have a big photo page in it, so here’s mine for this year!  Like all the other templates in Liz’s store, this one was super fun to use.  

First, I actually rotated the entire image (Image>Image Rotation> 90 degrees counterclockwise) since I knew my big photo was oriented horizontally rather than vertically.  I love that I can rotate Liz’s templates and it’s like a whole new template to add to my stash!  The only thing you must pay attention to when you rotate a template is making sure your shadows go where you want them to.  I did adjust some of my shadows!

Next, I clipped my photos in the photo spots.  This February we had a huge winter storm in Texas and the poor birds were literally starving to death.  We decided to feed as many as we could and I wanted to capture this memory.

Now usually I put elements down next and then work the papers around those.  But this time, with the large photo spot, I wanted to ensure that my background paper complimented my photo and didn’t draw the attention away from it, so I put my papers in next. 

After the papers were done, I started placing elements from Just Jaimee’s Winter End kit around the template. 

I added my text and took a look at my page:

Something wasn’t right, so I then went BACK to my elements and messed around with them, and I ended up taking the gold elements.  I thought they were distracting, and I really wanted this page to be all about the birds.  Here’s what I ended up with:

 

That’s it.  Easy peasy.  I hope you like my layout, and don’t forget that each month when I highlight a template, Liz gives all her blog readers a coupon for 50% off that featured template.  How cool is that????  So, this month use coupon code SWL_BIGPH7 before it expires on September 8th.  You will love adding Big Photo Templates 7 to your stash I promise!

See you next month!
