Friday Freebie

May 30, 2008 Sarah Coggins

In 2002, I created this layout to include multiple photos of our two cats. My intent was to keep the design simple and clean lined. The background is simply cardstock with the quote “Cats are just children with fur…” repeated.

To create the page, I actually laid it out in CAD in order to check my measurements before grabbing the ruler & x-acto knife. I have made it much simpler for you to lift this design. I created a template in Photoshop. It’s saved as a .psd file with layers for each item (background, frame, photos, title). All you have to do is download it and add your own photos & papers.

Please, leave me a comment with the link to your creation. I’d love to see! 🙂

Supplies: tan & dark brown cardstock; Jenkins font; quote from Pea Soup at Two Peas in a Bucket

    I absolutely love this type of composition - very clean, simple, classic - just my style. I love designs like this that stand the test of time.
