Print To Pocket Action No 01 | 2013 Project Life Week 22

 

In My Pocket Memory Keeping Class

Hello Lovelies! Today I have a Photoshop Tutorial for you, using my brand new Print To Pocket Action No. 01 that just released yesterday. You can purchase the Action by clicking on the image below.

Larkindesign Print To Pocket 01 Photoshop Actions

 

Actions are a series of recorded steps in Photoshop that allow you to repeat the same steps over and over again. This Action helps you design your pocket page layout and then breaks the layout apart into 4×6 printable photos. Here is a video showing how I created this layout:

This Action has completely changed (and simplified!) how I design and print my pocket page layouts. It’s so easy now to select my photos, edit them on a dime, drop them into the layout and then run the Action. This layout today took me about 20 minutes from start to printed photos! For today’s layout I simply edited and added photos to my foundation template, and then ran the Action to have it break the layout apart into printable 4×6 photos.

You can absolutely batch print your pages, leaving the fun creative part once your pages are all printed out. Here is a snapshot of my photos for this layout. They are all sized at 4×6 @300ppi and ready for printing.

Of course, if you are using digital collections you can drop your digital cards into your template as well, and let the Action save those journal cards for you with your photos.

The completed layout is below. If you’d like to see the process video for how I completed the layout once my photos were printed, I invite you to join me in the classroom at In My Pocket Vol. 01! For this layout I used physical Project Life products from Studio Calico to complete the pages. You will be so amazed at how quickly the Action runs, allowing you to print quickly and leave lots of time for the creative part!

Isn’t that awesome to watch?!! Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you will pick up these amazing Actions today!

Project Life 2017 Week 06 | Embellishing the Layout Using Studio Calico Confidant Kit!!!!

Hi guys! Today I am finishing up the hybrid portion of my layout for Week 06 in my 2017 Project Life album! This is my first time working with the Studio Calico Documenter kits – this one is Confidant from February.

Yesterday I shared with you the digital portion of creating my layout in Photoshop, and today the layout has been printed here at home on my wide format Canon Pixma. The digital layout was created in Photoshop CC using Pocket Guide templates from Paislee Press and the March ROAR MPM kit, both from The Lilypad. Now I am ready to embellish and finish it up!

Most of this week’s story revolved around me being sick with the flu – I was sick in total about 10 days. But you know how we moms do – we struggle to put ourselves to bed and so we continue going along, pushing through. There are photos from half of the week as I pushed through, and then I came to a complete stop to finally rest and recover.

I began the layout with the date card and couldn’t wait to use this rubber February word! Notice too how I layered the puffy sticker over the two patterned paper rectangles to tie them together. They now read as one card together. How fun!

I really liked using the hexagon stickers that were included in the Confidant kit. Those add a nice touch of color and simple embellishment!

For the right hand side I included my list journaling of all our tasks that week. Yes, the numbering is actually designed to notate the dates of the month, but I left them just as they are for whimsy. I can also say that those days I was sick felt like a whole month!

I am so thankful that life is so filled with all sorts of joy amidst the sickness and struggle. These Project Life layouts absolutely remind me of that weekly, the hard with the good, the happy with the bad. Finding Natalie’s stuffies all lined up on her headboard made us smile so much!

So when you’re sick as a dog, what do you take photos of? Simple, just what is in front of you. Tomato soup, the kids laughing at the dinner table, Alan ever at my side. All reminders that I am taken care of, and all the things I am so very grateful for.
