Just a quick post today! If you've been following September Blue since the beginning of the year, you know that I am documenting our stories and photos the Project Life way in a monthly format. I have two layouts completed for February and I thought I would share them with you today.
Those who follow are also aware that I am sharing my album in progress in a more interactive way through ISSUU.com. If this is your first time visiting, ISSUU is an online digital publishing platform where you can read thousands of free publications created by enthusiastic publishers from all over the world. While this platform is meant for those publishing online magazines, I thought I would use it as a way to share my Project Life album in progress. I do this by placing my completed layouts in an InDesign file, then exporting it out to a PDF. I then upload the PDF to ISSUU and badda-bing-badda-boom, they spit out this pretty cool online flippy book. I LOVE THIS WAY OF SHARING!!! You get a more realistic feel of what the album looks like rather that scrolling through all of the photos in a blog post. Plus, you can zoom in on the pages and read the text more clearly. Personally, I like to send the link to family living far away so they can see what has been going on with us down here in Florida.
I am including pics of what the double-page spreads look like. But if you really want a nice, close up version, click the button below to flip through the actual album!
With the exception of the frames and the "bedtime" & "am routine" word art on the photos you see on some of the pages, all the products are from the Coral Edition of Project Life. Many times I do not use Becky's products in their original state. I will manipulate them to create other journal cards or change the color of a paper from one kit to match the kit I am currently using. The word art mentioned is from Ali Edwards AM/PM Story Kits. If you have questions about any product you see on the pages, or how I did something, let me know and I'll be happy to answer!
How is your album coming along?
