Hi everyone! Leigh here, with a Yearbook post featuring everyday photos. In this case, cell phone photos!
This layout uses a 2×2 cell phone photo snapped during our bestie’s Girl’s Night Out! I was inspired by the “Inspiration Weekend” over at Shimelle.com and this layout by Heather Leopard.
The challenge was to use diagonal lines, so I punched squares of copy paper and hand cut them in half to form triangles. Doing this in analog helps me see how the layout will come together.
Looks like this once you have punched all your papers and laid them down over your pattern.
Here is a close up of the photo. I import phone photos into Photoshop to check the resolution. Make sure it is at 300DPI resolution for printing. (Sometimes my phone photos get downgraded during import to 72DPI, which isn’t good enough for printing, so I change the resolution and size in Photoshop before I print). I can also change the size in Photoshop and save it as a copy to reserve the original. This one is 2×2 inches.
Close up of the stitching done on all the triangles. The 6×6 Millie and June Paper pad available in the Clique Kits Shop is perfect for smaller scale punched pieces.
Close up of the embellishment clusters, near the photo and two other spots on the page.
