By show of hands, how many of you participated in Project 365 last year? Raise those hands high!
My hand... not up.
I wanted to participate, really I did. I blame it on not having an iPhone. I also blame it on not having a plan.
I still don't have an iPhone, but for 2010, I do have a plan. I hope that by sharing this Project 365 freebie with you, you'll also be able to document your year!
The inspiration for this design was from the monthly photos of my kids that I make each year for my parents. I love the 4x6 format, because it's so easy to just print them off as photos and add to a standard album. I also kinda dig the little date stamps I created for my kids and have converted them for this purpose.
I hope that my take on Project 365 is versatile enough to fit your needs, yet provides a standard and cohesive look for your album, however you choose to use them. Included in the 25MB kit are the following:
- 365 Black Date Stamps -- Each month has its own PNG file, and there is a stamp for all 365 days of the year. I've consecutively numbered them -- and double checked my dates / numbers to make sure that I didn't miss any. The text around each stamp reads "January 1 Project 365" -- obviously each stamp will have its own date and corresponding number of the year.
- 365 White Date Stamps -- After creating the white background with black overlay, I thought the inverse might also look nice. If you would like a different color, simply open the PNG file, choose "Layer Styles" then "Color" and choose the color of your choice for the date stamp.
- 2 Black Lined 4x6 PNG Overlays -- one for the left side, one for the right side
- 2 Black Unlined 4x6 PNG Overlays -- one for the left side, one for the right side
- 2 White Lined 4x6 PNG Overlays -- one for the left side, one for the right side
- 2 White Unlined 4x6 PNG Overlays -- one for the left side, one for the right side
Below you'll see examples of each of the 8 overlays. Under the samples, you can see exactly what it is you'll be downloading.
