Rock Star Baby Announcements

Hello and welcome to our Rock Star Baby Announcements.  Please take a moment to read this important information about your product. FONTS: In order to maintain the look of the templates you will need to have the same fonts installed on your system as the ones we used in the design. FONTS USED IN THIS DESIGN: STYLE 1: 1942 report STYLE 2: Another Typewriter STYLE 3: Plain Germanica Another Typewriter STYLE 4: Another Typewriter STYLE 5: Plain Germanica Another Typewriter STYLE 6: Another Typewriter The fonts we use in our designs are usually freeware or shareware fonts available for free on the internet.  We cannot include the fonts in your download because they are protected under copyright.  However you can download them directly from their creators.   We find that if you type in the name of the font into your favorite search engine you will come up with several download sources. INSERTING IMAGES: Inserting your own images into the templates is very easy.  Perform the following steps: 1)) Select the image layer you would like to populate in your LAYERS palette (It will be called "IMAGE LAYER"). 2)) Open your image and drag it onto the template using your MOVE tool (Keyboard shortcut "V") 3)) Your image will be placed above IMAGE LAYER in the layers palette, but right now it will probably appear quite large. 4)) Now, choose LAYER -> MAKE CLIPPING MASK from the top menu in Photoshop. This will insure that your image will only appear in the frame which you intended. You can also select the “create clipping mask” option from the top right arrow of your layers palette. 5))  Use the FREE TRANSFORM tool (Keyboard shortcut Control+T) and drag in the corners of your image to position it correctly within the frame.  (Hold SHIFT while you drag to constrain proportions, so your image won't get "smooshed".) 6)) Press Enter to apply the transformation. Repeat this step with any subsequent images. CHANGING COLORS: If the element you would like to change the color of has a color fill layer, follow these steps: 1)) Select the layer of the element you would like to change in the LAYERS palette. (Such as "BACKGROUND".) 2)) Above this layer will be a color fill layer, called "BACKGROUND COLOR". Simply double click the colored box next to the words "BACKGROUND COLOR" and choose a new color. 3)) Click "OK". If the layer you would like to change the color of does not have a color fill layer (and one cannot be applied to it), follow these steps: 1)) Select the layer you would like to change in the LAYERS palette. 2)) At the bottom of your LAYERS palette you will see several little icons.  Choose the "Make adjustment layer" icon (it is a tiny circle filled with half black and half white) 3)) Click this icon and choose "Hue/Saturation". 4)) Slide the "Hue" slider until you find a shade you like. 5)) Click "OK". PRINTING YOUR CARDS: We have designed these templates to be used with White House Custom Color's ( www.whcc.com ) two sided 5x5 card products.  If you currently use WHCC the templates are 100% ready to go.  Don't worry, however, if you use another lab as the cards will be printed easily with your favorite printer.  Remember that each lab is different, so be absolutely sure that you contact them for their specs and color profiles prior to submitting your files.  When you have your lab's sizing and submission guidelines, you will need to transfer the designs to their templates before printing them.

When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.

There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.

I am beyond grateful I get to photograph intimate destination weddings and elopements all over the world. Besides traveling for photography work, exploring new places with my husband has become a big part of our marriage and something we want to continue for the rest of our lives. My husband’s grandparents are our biggest idols. They have spent over 50 years married, traveling the world together, continuing to explore new places together. Their passion for traveling has led them to occasionally taking their entire family on vacation, most often to an exotic beach of their choice; a tradition we hope to be able continue one day in their honor.
