Project Life: Four


One thing I am quickly learning about using a smaller format is that it can be rather hard to "showcase" one photo. Case and point, this incredible sunrise photo that I took the other day walking to work. Originally I printed it off as a 3x4 but there was no way I was going to be happy with the end result. I ended it up printing it as a 5x7 and put it into a Becky Higgins 5x7 page protector.

On the back of the insert I played around with a couple of ideas but decided on trying out a mini "traditional" scrapbooking layout. Doing a 12x12 traditional layout scares the crap out of me, so I thought I would start small. I used some things from past Studio Calico kits (which was also a challenge for #SCCROP2014). I'm so happy with the end result. Again, doing my best to add journal cards - if you can get your hands on a typewriter, I highly recommend getting one. It has saved me so many times. Plus I love the vintage type feel to it.

  1. Do you print the big photos at home or get them done somewhere? I got the canon CP900 for Christmas and I love it but it doesn't print bigger than 4x6. Boooo lol

    1. Great question! I print them all at home. Last year I used a Canon Selphy and I loved it. It really helped me complete the year. But the quality really went downhill. I'm not sure if it was from overuse or I just started to get really picky. But I decided to replace it with an Epson XP610, it's wireless so I can print straight from my phone!
