I finally took the plunge. I bit the bullet and settled on my favorite Project Life Core Edition & decided to go hybrid! So, here’s my title page! I have a Wide Format Printer, so I can easily print these beauties at home at my convenience. After I print them out on photo paper, I’ll add embellishments, stamping, and other little momentos!
Why did I choose to go hybrid?
1. Convenience. I love dragging and dropping photos directly into photoshop. There’s no need to trim photos or worry about having them ordered. In the end, I can just print off all the pages at home or through a printing service, quickly add momentos, and then throw them into page protectors.
2. Price. I know me. When I buy something, I have to have it ALL. Having everything digital will restrict my supply buy-age.
3. I’ll get it done. It can be awfully intimidating to create page after page with my supplies. You run the risk of those craft mishaps (mis-stamping, ink rubbage, glue boogers, etc.). With the digital format, everything is clean & simple!
4. Easy to collaborate with my soldier in Afghanistan. My husband can simply send me pictures via email, then I can open them, drag them into Photoshop, and viola!
