Larkindesign Print To Pocket 01 Photoshop Actions


Hello everyone, today is the day and I have been so anxious to share this release with you! Over the last five years or so I have been sharing my thoughts, processes, and layouts using pocket pages and as a result of that, have made so many friends with all of you! You have shared with me your challenges, your struggles, and your victories in using pocket pages, in using Photoshop, in creating a process for your own memory keeping. It has become my passion to find ways to Uncomplicate Your Memory Keeping.

Today I am releasing the Print To Pocket Actions for Photoshop! I can’t wait for you to try these out! I have been using these Actions for several weeks now and cannot believe how much easier it has been to design and print my layouts, and I especially love how beautiful my pages are! I think you will be amazed when you try these Actions out and see the difference in your own process. These are a real game changer!

I invite you to click on the image to find out more about this amazing new tool and add it to your own toolkit right now!

I brought in some of my Maggie Holmes Gather collection to add dimension and glitter to the layout. I also added a few epoxy flowers that I have collected over the years, from Amercian Crafts, Tim Holtz, and Donna Downey/Prima.

In other very exciting news, my class called In My Pocket Memory Keeping was launched yesterday!!! Hooray! Pre-order is now complete and I decided to keep the discounted price at $35, so you can still take advantage of that. I promise this class is worth entirely MORE than that and is chock filled with ideas and inspiration. It is entirely self-led, although until September 28 I will release one lesson per week. You can join in at any time! Want to learn more? Head over here! 

See you in the classroom!






Hybrid Layout | Believe Story Kit by Ali Edwards

Hi guys! I am diverting from my usual Project Life layout today because I was inspired by the Believe Story kit this month that is part of Ali Edwards’ subscription program. I wanted to create a layout for each of our four children so I could tell them I believe in them. Here is a look at my process for one of these layouts:

So my process here actually began in Photoshop with three photos. I wrote out my journaling, which is a love letter to our daughter Emberlynn, and then I added several filler cards and the word art to the layout.

Both pages were printed out, trimmed, and adhered to patterned paper from Maggie Holmes’ Shine collection. I was drawn to the coral/pinkish color that was in the kit, so that is the highlighted color of the layout.


The photos I chose are from the day she graduated from fifth grade. This was an important accomplishment for her! Sometimes we wonder why we have to have graduation ceremonies for fifth graders, but let me tell you it is children like Emberlynn who need to feel this sense of accomplishment so she will know what that feels like! We are so proud of her and her hard work.

I always like adding their initial to their layout, and this filler card became a great home for the initial and a cluster of embellishments.

I chose to use this quote card and also this filler card with a stamped heart layered on top. So very uncomplicated, guys!

Across the bottom is another embellishment cluster, which is grounded by this washi tape that came from Paper Source. I also used one of the journaling strips not as journaling but simply as another embellishment to draw your eye to this place on the layout.

That is all for today! I will show you the other three layouts next Tuesday, and then we will get back to my normal Project Life series. These four layouts will probably conclude my album for the first half of 2016 so it is also time for a flip-thru video! So awesome. I’ll see you soon!
