Going BIG with Printables by Maggie Massey

Hey everyone! Maggie here with my very first ES blog post! So exciting! Today I’m featuring the This Is Love printables… well, one printable in particular.

One of my favorite things to do with printable cards is use them as my background on a page. And that’s exactly what I did with the “real life” card available this month.

I opened the card up in my photo editing program (I used Photoshop, but you can use any editing program) and simply increased the image size to 8.5″x11″ – then just printed the image out on cardstock…easy peasy!

I used the large journaling section at the bottom of the page as a mat for my photos and added a few more small embellishments. I didn’t need a ton of journaling on this page, because I think the story is told well enough by the photos themselves. I added a sheet of Christmas Tree patterned paper (cut to 9×12) from the Joyful Collection behind my printable and done!

We’d love to see how you used our printables this month! Share them with us in our Member Gallery or on Instagram with the hashtag #ellesstudio!
