THIS WEEK I'M SHARING A LITTLE INSIGHT INTO HOW I LIKE TO USE PHOTO TEMPLATES TO GET A LITTLE MORE OUT OF THEM IN 3 EASY WAYS! LITTLE LAMM & CO RECENTLY RELEASED HER MARCH TEMPLATES AND THEY'RE FABULOUS! I LIKE TO USE THEM IN VARIOUS WAYS BUT THE 4X6 ONES ARE PERFECT TO THEN PLOP INTO MY PROJECT LIFE SO THAT'S WHAT I'M GOING TO BE SHARING TODAY!

USING PHOTO TEMPLATES | THE PAPER CURATOR

WAY NO. 1 - AS IS

LET'S BE REAL, MOST THINGS WE PURCHASE ARE WELL DESIGNED, THAT'S WHY WE PURCHASE THEM! THEREFORE, MY ULTIMATE WAY TO USE PHOTO TEMPLATES IS TO SIMPLY CHOOSE A DASHING PHOTO THAT WORKS WITH THE WORDS, LAYOUT ETC, AND THROW THEM IN - PHOTO READY. ABOVE, YOU CAN SEE THE BEAUTIFUL 'SPRING IS IN THE AIR' TEMPLATE THAT I SIMPLY DROPPED A FITTING PHOTO INTO - VOILA!


WAY NO. 2 - JOURNAL IT UP

MANY PHOTO TEMPLATES LEAVE YOU ROOM TO ADD YOUR JOURNALING RIGHT ONTO YOUR PHOTO SO I DEFINITELY TRY TO USE THAT WHENEVER POSSIBLE. CHANCES ARE, THE DESIGNER HAS ALREADY PRE-SELECTED FONTS FOR YOU THAT GO WELL TOGETHER, TOO - DOUBLE BONUS! YOU CAN SEE HOW I'VE DONE THIS WITH THE GOODNIGHT MOON PHOTO ABOVE LEFT.


WAY NO. 3 - COLOR BLOCK IT UP

I ACTUALLY REALLY LOVED THE COLOR COMBINATIONS OF THE DIFFERENT MOSAIC PHOTO TEMPLATE THAT WAS PROVIDED SO I SIMPLY OVERLAID IT ONTO MY (MOSTLY) WHITE PHOTO OF MY NEW INSTAX CAMERA. IT WAS A SUPER FUN WAY TO JAZZ THIS PHOTO UP AND GET SOME FUN COLOR USAGE GOING AS WELL. THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX WITH TEMPLATES! YOU DON'T ALWAYS HAVE TO CROP YOUR PHOTOS TO THE BOXES, SOMETIMES THE BOXES CAN BE DESIGN ELEMENTS AS WELL!
