project life: layered psd template

i thought i would share a little layered template i created for my insert this week.  i tend to have lots of photos, so multiple pictures on one 4x6 photo works well for me.  

i also like to change things up a bit and add either journaling or embellishments on my grid pictures.

here's how i use my layered psd...

this is the file i created using photoshop elements.
you can use it as it is...with 6 slots for photos.  these squares are roughly 2x2 each and are perfect for instagram photos.

when you open the psd file, you will see the layers #1-6 on the right hand side (as pictured with the arrow).

as above in my project life insert, i sometimes like to "hide" a layer to leave a white space for journaling or embellishments.  for the insert, i cut down one of the dear lizzy cards for that spot and sewed it into place.

click on the little "eye" next to the layer you want to hide.  you'll see that box disappear after you click on the eye icon.

for the photo on the front of the insert, i "hid" the two layers on the right to make space for my title. 
i love how the white space makes the photos pop.

let me know if you have any questions or need any help with this.  i just play around with pse so i don't know too much, but i'm happy to help if i can!!  

thanks for stopping by!


  1. Great sides of PL! Thanks for your picture template - I have to learn the Gimp programm...I don't have PSE.

  2. Thank you so much for the template. I think 4shared is really complicated (I know my way around computers) but I finally got to it through sheer determination. A download has to be really good for me to fight 4squared for it :)

    1. Haha Jill! I've actually never really shared docs before so I'm not too familiar with that site...other than its free! Ha! It took me a while to figure out which "download" button to click. Maybe I will try to upload to another site.... Thanks!

  3. Thank you! I've been looking for a template with six pictures on it, and this is perfect!

  4. How do you uninstall this. I don't think this worked....
