Another Step-by-Step Post

Happy March!  This year is already flying by, and I can’t believe it’s time for Spring Break here in the States.  As usual, we have a full spring schedule with school and activities so when I want to scrap a page quickly, I reach for Liz’s templates.  I thought I’d show you my process in this month’s Step-by-Step blog post.  Since I knew I wanted to scrap our visit to the coffee bean farm in Hawaii, I chose a template with a large photo mask – one from Focal Point Templates 10:

This series is perfect for landscape or travel photos, and I love them all!  However, I was drawn to this particular one because of the horizontal mask:

I always start with my photos since that’s the most important part to me:

Next, I decided to choose my background paper.  With the large mask, I knew I wanted a paper that wouldn’t compete with the photo, but still add some visual interest so I chose this one found in T is for Together by Rachel Jefferies and Studio Basic:

After those steps, it’s just fun playing around with different elements.  I love that these templates allow me to use just a few elements and yet make an aesthetically pleasing page:

Finally, I added my title and journaling (the second most important part for me so I wanted it to be legible when printed).  I used white on the word “coffee” and then lowered the fill to 25% and added a white stroke.  This allowed an almost transparent look, but still readable!

And that’s it!  Another page done and ready to print.  See how fast these go when you use the right template as a jumping off point?  I hope you like it and appreciate you reading through my steps. See you next month 😊
