Awesome Examples Using Love You Because Layered Templates

I received an email from Melissa last night letting me know that she had used my Love You Because Layered Template Set to create 8×8 books for her husband and kids this past holiday. I clicked on the link and was so inspired to see how she had used the templates and to see her amazing photography! This is exactly what I hoped people would create with this product.

I especially love how she included little notes from the rest of the family on the last page.

Thanks so much for sharing your books with me Melissa! You can view all here books here.

UPDATED : Melissa put together a blog post showing her HowTo for this project. Check it out here.

Here’s another one:

I need to bump this project up on my list to make for my family.

So awesome. You can grab the Love You Because Layered Template set here.

    I love the albums and bought the templates yesterday. How do you get a picture to span the two page spread perfectly? Also, I don’t know how to change the color of the numbers? Thanks in advance for your help!

    These are awesome – I also bought the templates, but do not understand how you are getting the picture to span two pages! Are the two pages side by side in photoshop? I am also having trouble changing the color of the “love you because”. Thanks for any help!

      Kendra- I just poested a hot to on my blog. . . As for changing the color of the word art, I’m not sure. I left it white. Try clicking the layer and changing the color overlay.

    What a lovely series of pages, absolutely stunning photography. Inspired me to purchase your digital kit from DD, can’t wait to make my own books for my family, after I completed my December Daily that is!

    I love this. I just downloaded the templates and was wondering if that first “10 reasons I love you” page was supposed to come with it because my doesn’t have it.

    Thanks. Alicia

    Great Inspirational Project! I am also wondering about the 10 reasons I love you title page. I don’t seem to find it included in my downloaded templates either.

    Any info would be appreciated! :)

    Thanks, Kim

    Dear Ali,

    Thank you for your creativity. I have bought your template. It was a spurge as I NEED to account for the exchange control but so worth it.

    I cannot wait to start my album.

    Kind regards

    OMG…these are so gorgeous it makes me want to cry! I can only marvel and wish that I had the skill to capture those photos. And the book template sets them off perfectly. Thank you so much for sharing!

    And now, after having fallen for the templates, I’ve used it to make an album for my daughter, I offer him for his baptism. A nice memory, I think.
    I was inspired largely the album Melissa, and I added a few pages, for me, I have 20 reasons to love my daughter :-) )
    Thank you for these templates!
