I was so excited for this quarter’s virtual crop. I had not completed many pages recently. The only pages I was working on were pixels2Pages work assignments. The layouts I was getting done for p2P were pretty random. Looking for pictures that work well or feature what we are showcasing, creates a lot of random pages for me. Just so happens I was working on my next Video Tidbit, Power Layouts – Digi Style. (publishes Jan 21, 2016) Being organized to work on a series of photos really helps in getting pages done.
I think the most powerful tool in a digi power layout is in Historian – the album making feature. There, I can put all my photos in the order I want. Because I often am getting pictures from multiple sources, the photos don’t “sit” together in the file structure of Historian. The album feature allows me to put “like” photos together. That enables me to eliminate photos that aren’t necessary. It also ensures I have all the photos that go together. I hate it when I do a series of layouts and then find a photo I forgot to include. The proof is in the pudding – I completed 16 layouts in two days! All I had to do was grab a group of photos from my Historian album and have fun creating! I hope you find my lastest Video Tidbit helpful in getting pages completed in 2016!
