This month from Life-n-Reflection I received the Harvest Photo Minis. These were perfect to add a little something extra to my fall pictures from the pumpkin festival we visited.

I am itching to take down the Halloween decorations and have just regular fall ones again. Our house was extra spooky this year because of my son’s Halloween birthday party. I don’t typically go all out for Halloween. I am ready to un-spookify my house and get it ready for the rest of fall. (I don’t put up any Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving.)

I added each of my pictures to the harvest photo minis in Photoshop elements. Basically you have to clip your photo (after it is re-sized) to the mini. This allows you to move it around in the space meant for the picture without it overlapping any of the design elements.

I created a collage print at Walgreens using all 6 pictures. Once I had it printed out, I placed it into a frame and had an instant decoration for my fall tablescape by my front door.

I also had all of the images printed out on regular 4 x 6 photo paper.

I created a new file in Photoshop that was sized to be 6″ x 4″. Then, I just dragged and resized two of the harvest minis to fill the space. After having it printed, I cut it down to fit in my Project Life album. (There are places you can order 3 x 4 prints online, but I wanted these back right away!) You can see that image below:

I did the same for a few other pictures to be able to get them down to the 3 x 4 size I needed for my layout.

I also used one of the free designs Kristy has available over at her blog to create the banner in the right corner. After printing and cutting out the banner, I attached it to baker’s twine and then adhered it to regular card stock. You can find it on her printable goodies page.

I love that I can adapt them to use with Project Life as well. I am really loving the simplicity of creating my family album. (The two extra journaling cards I used were from the Project Life Dear Lizzy 5th and Frolic kit.)
