Update | Forever Live, Jobs, Design Team Call, Closures, & More!

After a brief period of quiet while everyone was busy with the summer shows, the news has picked back up! It’s time for another Update column!

I’m choosing to do this project entirely digital because I know that it is the only way I’ll ever get the whole thing done is by using the templates because of how slow I create. I’m using the Week In The Life Vol. 5 template set by Ali Edwards from Designer Digitals.

I started out my creating by doing all of my photos for my left pages, choosing which photo I wanted to highlight for each day.
