So, I’ve been silent for a few weeks. No worries though, I kept scrapping. Just a lot of work and life getting in the way of blogging. But tonight I’m back with a bang (if I may say so myself).
Have I told you about my bridesmaid Sine? “No”, you might say and wonder what this has to do with a freebie. Well, a few years ago I met Sine online. Long before she introduced me to my fiancé and had me promise to make her a bridemaid should we ever get married. Because she wasn’t a professional matchmaker, but a digital template designers at Scrap Orchard. I got onto her creative team and we became good friends. We enjoyed working together and brainstorming new ideas, so when she resigned from classic template design, we became “Creative Eyes Designs”. Together we created a few photo book templates we sell at a book printing site.
One day Sine showed me a post in a digi scrapping forum, where a photographer asked why so few of the designers would create good and affordable products to use in small photography businesses. Especially album templates and storyboards. “Wouldn’t it be fun to do that?” we said. “We are doing something close enough anyway.” We noted down a few ideas, Sine designed some beautiful papers for us to use, we actually had someone help us set up a little shop… and then we changed jobs, kept busy away from the computer and never really got around doing those new book templates.
Guess that’s a pretty common story. But this weekend I suddenly felt restless with my normal scrapping and inspired to finally use those papers and ideas. I bet you see where this is going now. Yep, I created a photo book template set. Meet “Sunny”:
This is a set of psd templates to create photo books for yourself or your customers. Included are 22 different page designs, a cover and a back cover. Two of the page designs have also been altered into two bonus pages with a spot for journaling. The size for each page is 12,25 inch in 300dpi resolution. Please keep in mind, that your pages will get trimmed at the edges. I have added a “bleed indicator” file. It’s a png file, that you can layer over your pages and it will show you what gets cut-off at a 0.25 inch trim and a 0.5 inch trim. Your photo book printer will usually be able to tell you how much they trim off.
Here are examples of some page designs:
Ok, here we go. The set is spilt into 5 downloads plus an additional downloads for preview and TOU. Click on the text to download and enjoy!
BTW we would love to hear your thoughts and see examples of the books you create. Feel free to leave a comment below or email us at info(@)creativeeyesdesigns.(com) (please remove the ( )’s manually).
And in case you feel challenged how to use them, a tutorial is in the making. And maybe a little storyboard add-on, but I need to see how much time I’ll have.
