How I’m going to do it? Mmmm…not sure. Yes, I know we’re 3 weeks into January and I still haven’t decided how I’m going to approach our Project Life album this year. Last year, I tried a loose and relaxed monthly approach and only finished 2 months of the entire album. And all those photos I took last year? Still living on my computer. That was one of the whole reasons I started Project Life (4 years ago) in the first place!! Because I didn’t want my pictures just living on the computer! So this year, I’m going to just do it. Just get it done. Get those pictures printed and stories told.
I posted a little peek of my title page “in progress” in Instagram last week, and a few people asked if I could put together a tutorial about how I resized Studio Calico’s Digital Project Life cards from the January “Far Far Away” Kit. So as requested, a little video tutorial! The video will walk you through how I made a digital template for my title page, how I resized the PL cards, how you can make the cards with SQUARE corners (!!) and a few tips for how I print my cards at home. If you’re really only interested in getting square corners on those PL cards, skip ahead to about the 12 minute mark 😉 (Please excuse the number of grammatical errors and “umm”s and the fact that I used clipped/clipping/mask interchangeably and completely incorrectly!)

I hope you find it helpful, and would love to hear your comments/questions/suggestions for future tutorials
