Hipstagram Layouts

We're mid-week. That means we're halfway to Friday and that's good news.

Today's layouts are inspired by hipstagram. I love the hipstagram app on my iphone. In fact, I love my phone. I answered a lot of questions about developing the photos on the weekend at the retreat I attended. Here's my process.

Usually I open a 4 by 6 file in photoshop. Then I open 6 hipstagram photos. Then I drag each one over to the 4 by 6 file and position them so that there are 6 on a page. I save it and send them to the printers the same as I would a regular 4 by 6. Then I just trim them when I get home. It works and they come out just lovely.

First up is this layout about fall running. I love a fall run. I love the leaves and the crisp air. This paper seemed perfect for this topic. The journaling is tucked in behind the photo matte. It's simple but perfect with all it's Fall colors.



This one is about our Saturday routine which usually includes a walk downtown together and friends. I splattered some mists onto this one which is a new technique I seem to like a lot based on my recent layouts. It's a little 'Maggie Holmes style' but I love the results.



Happy Wednesday!
