I’ve reached the six month mark in recording our family memories using my monthly photo collage templates and it feels SO GREAT to have all these memories documented and in my 2013 Project Life album! I’ve been doing this since 2010 and you can read more + download my free photo collage templates here.
While gathering photos for my monthly collage I delete duplicate/unwanted images and then backup photos to my external hard drive. I don’t know about you but I’ve experienced a few scary moments where I thought I’d lost photos that hadn’t been backed up off of my computer and it was the worst feeling! I can’t tell you how important it is to establish a regular back up schedule so you don’t lose your images!
All you have to do is drop in your photos, add some text + print! I probably spend anywhere from about a 1/2 hour to an hour creating these collages each month and it’s definitely time well spent!
If you’d like to use the same diagonal striped background that I used in my collages the Simply Stripes patter paper pack is available in the digital shop. The package includes 6 JPG files in the colors used in my my instagram collages plus a PSD layered file that you can customize in whatever colors you’d like to create your own custom backgrounds! For step by step instructions on how to customize the colors visit this post.
Regularly $5.00 the pack is available at an introductory price of $3.50 for a limited time!
