I love my Pottery Barn catalog and they have so many beautiful products that if I could afford it I would just buy up their entire store. Unfortunately I can't so I don't. Instead I usually buy less expensive items and re-create the look I want. So I was flipping through their catalog a noticed this Silver Leaf First Year Frame for $59.
I'm not in love with the silver Leaf Frame but I do love the layout of the photos. I guess that is the designer in me. So I decided to put my skills to work re-creating the photo mat in Pottery Barn's frame as a digital storyboard template.
I designed this layered psd template as a 10x20, and now all I have to do is place my photos and get it printed. The template could also be modified to add Personalization by simply adjusting the layers up or down to create the space needed for text. After printing the only thing left is to buy a frame.
In fact I liked this idea so much that I re-created the concept in 5 different sizes. Each template has 13 opening so they are perfect for Baby's First Year or School Years Photos.
