I am beginning to understand why Liz of Paislee Press said she does the title page last–a) it’s hard to know in January what pictures and story will best represent the year and b) discovering cute things along the way (particularly if you are digital) make it easy to tweak and tweak and tweak!
Discovering that your title page was 10×12 after you spent a few nights working on it doesn’t help either. Because I am printing my book with Shutterfly into a photobook, versus putting printed 12x12s into page protectors like many others are doing, I am unable to have varying size pages. (No matter what I was going to have to redo my page to be 12×12 since I wasn’t about to redo the whole title page!)
Anyhow–I resized the template by linking all of the layers and then using the free transform command in photoshop. I then downloaded Shutterfly templates from here which provide guides for knowing where the crops are when printing with Shutterfly. Worked like a charm! I also stumbled upon this blog that had a free download, which I thought ended up looking perfect in the bottom right hand corner. I would highly recommend clicking on that link above and downloading the graphic. It would look cool on a journaling card, on a cover–you name it. So great that so many people are willing to provide things for free!
I am not sure if this is going to be the cover of the book, or merely the inside cover/title page, but I am vowing NOT to change it again. I love it!!
