Any one else notice how fast the weeks seem to be going lately? Sometimes I feel like I just blink and it is already Friday again.
A couple product announcements for today:
First, my new stamps are back in stock at Technique Tuesday. You can check them out here:
I also wanted to share a two new things that I have recently released through Designer Digitals (new products are added to the store every Sunday) and am really excited about as the are building blocks for very cool projects. Definitely weekend creative sort of material.
2009 Photo Calendar Layered Template : This layered template is designed to hold an entire month of photos for each of the 12 months in 2009. The download also includes a blank calender that you could use for this year or any year. Great for Photo A Day/365 projects or capturing a specific month in your life. 12x12.
I am thinking about embarking on another 365 project for nex year (I started one of just me this year and got sidetracked after about the first month). Especially with a new baby in the house I think my camera will be getting quite a bit of use this next year and I envision widening the project to just be a photo a day rather than a self-portrait a day. Even just documenting the baby's first month in this format would be really cool.
The background is customizable or you can just leave it a nice clean white.
You can learn more about working with layered templates here.
Live Your Gratitude Daily Calendar : This is my other favorite recent release and is based on a minibook I created for my newest book Sharing Your Story. It's a place to document your own personal everyday gratitudes and makes a great gift (thinking towards the holidays). You do not need to have Photoshop for this product as it comes with PDF files for easy printing. 8 inches x 8 inches.
Here's a peek at the book that appeared in Sharing Your Story:
The minibook I used as a foundation for this project is a 7gypsies Naked Composition Journal. I simply printed out the gratitude pages on cream cardstock, rounded the corners, and adhered each page into the book. The cover includes a bunch of circle-punched patterns and is covered with gel medium (you could use mod podge as well).
Hoping you all have a great weekend and get a chance to work on your week in the life albums. Don't wait too long to put those books together. It is so worth the effort. That's a reminder to me as much as it is to you!
