View Full Version : CU Photo Pockets Page Templates

11-16-2013, 03:40 PM
A fellow designer was on the hunt for some CU photo pockets. We could find an abundance of
PU ones, but not much in the CU department, so I decided to try to make some. Easier said
than done, but I finally accomplished it. The results are 4 products and a bundle: Pages 1 (http://bit.ly/1ag7SmG),
Pages 2 (http://bit.ly/1ealmkL), Pages 3 (http://bit.ly/1f0m3jv), Pages 4 (http://bit.ly/1f0lZAn) and Photo Pockets Bundle - Pages 1-4 (http://bit.ly/1ijnhpS).
These will be on sale for 40% off thru December 2nd in my CU Store (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/commercial/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=23_109).

I'm not sure I understand how you use these. Could you show an example of them in use? I think that would be very helpful.

Definitely plan on doing that ... I got a little bit delayed in getting it done because I had to fly home from my 4 week vacation ... and do laundry ... :'(

Here's my example of how a scrapper could use one of these templates.

Even though my Photo Pockets - Pages (http://bit.ly/1gZ5vJi) are CU, they could easily be used by a scrapper ...

These Photo Pockets - Pages are basically a digital representation of a plastic photo
pocket page made into a digital template. The file has two types of pockets: one is plain
(like I used in my layout) and one has subtle scratches. Each type of pocket resides on
its own layer. I also created two types of placeholders (round and square edge), each
located on its own layer and one layer containing the sheet of placeholders. Then there's
a background layer for your background paper.

The CU version has extra layers so that a kit designer would have multiple options for
their kits. I could see these be part of a Project Life type of kit where the designer
creates journal cards and other goodies to go into the pockets and includes a simplified
version of the template. However, I could easily simplify these myself and release them
for personal use if there is an interest. That way, you could use them with kits you
already own.

btw -- single and multiple pockets are also in the works and should be released shortly.
