Hybrid Tutorial: Adding Digital Frames

It was the eighth time the family had gathered at the nephews' pub in Keyser, WV. What a fun family tradition this is. Since the name of the pub is "Clancy's," the song title, "Here's to you Clancy," was fitting!

I made this layout to display pictures of my family members who attended. I was able to capture 16 photos of family members on my layout by placing those images in digital film negatives. My finished layout has photos of over 20 family members on one page! 


To create the digital film negatives, determine the width of the negative you want and size.  
Determine the photo size. An easy way to do this is to crop the inside of one of the frames, then click on image size. 
Crop each photo that same size. Paste it behind the negative.
Crop and repeat. Print the negatives and hand cut around each. The slide image on my layout is also a digital frame. The journaling block is a digital image on which I typed my journaling. I adhered the negatives, journaling block, slide and title alphas to my paper, added a border and a few studs.

Thanks for the tutorial Cindy - love it! What great use you made of those film strips - great to get a record of so many family members on one layout!
I had to laugh at the last comment you left on my blog...By leaving out the letter "r", the beginning of your comment read "I love you 2.." Really, Cindy - we've never even met! Lol!
