You might remember a couple months ago I had a post that listed things we’ve learned from Simon. If you missed that post you can check it out here.
I knew from the beginning that I wanted to do something tangible with those words. This is something that I hold dear about memory keeping: it’s an opportunity to visibly express love in a concrete way via words and photos.
I’m excited to let you know that I designed a 4×6 layered template package to go along with those words so Simon will be able to have a little book for himself.
The 4×6 layered template package includes a title card, right journaling card, left journaling card, and six sentiment cards. They are all layered PSD files so you can completely adjust the colors, add in the correct names, and add your own journaling.
The fonts used are Sanchez and Garamond. The script is my handwriting.
You can re-color these to anything you want or remove the background and have the text on top of a photo like I did here:
Loved playing with that one.
Right now I printed out all the 4×6 pages + photos and placed them inside some divided page protectors. I’m on the hunt for a small album that holds 4×6 photos that he can keep in his bedroom.
Here’s a look at all my pages (click to view larger):
Here’s a look at these cards placed inside 12×12, 4×6 divided page protectors:
I’m excited to see how people end up using these templates – whether within Project Life or in smaller mini-books. It’s an awesome opportunity to show someone in your life how much they are loved and valued via words and photos.
Enjoy! Pick up the layered template set here.
