LIFE:CAPTURED began in August 2013 when we held our first full-day workshop at RAW Space in Sydney, Australia. Our mission is to help people document their stories and create tangible keepsakes to be treasured for generations to come. We offer intensive design, photography, and memory keeping workshops, as well as interactive online classes. We are advocates of honest photography, minimalist design, and memory keeping that's simple, beautiful, and tangible. We are the pioneers of the story book, and we offer flexible templates that enable everybody to tell their story. We believe that life is worth remembering and that it is never too early or too late to start documenting yours. LIFE:CAPTURED was founded by Rhonda Mason (of the Pink Ronnie blog) and Trish Chong (of Tealily Photography).

Ten things you may not know about our Signature Card Set

For those of you who are new to our space, I thought it might be fun (and helpful) for us to take a look at some of the best-selling goodies in our shop. 

To start off with, here are ten things you may not have known about our Signature Card Set:

ONE // This packaged product offers the core templates that you need to set up a life album. What's a life album, I hear you ask. Well, we like to think of life albums as photo albums with benefits. Life albums allow you to document photos together with words in an album format, in a way that is simple, easy, and beautiful. The most wonderful thing about life albums is that it's extremely flexible: you can add extra pages at any time, and it's easy to change your photos or to include more journaling. To see some sample life album layouts, have a quick browse through these blog posts

TWO // Our Signature Card Set includes a title card, a weekly summary card, a quotation card, journaling cards, and various photo templates—in fact, you can click on the image above to take a closer look at each of the card designs. This means that once you've purchased and downloaded this package of templates, you can pretty much get started with documenting your life on a weekly basis. There's nothing really else that you need!

THREE // There are three different editions to choose from: The Rockwell edition, The Serif Edition, and The Sans Serif Edition. All three editions feature white space, clean typography, and a minimalist design, and all the templates have been created to let your photos and your words shine. 

FOUR // You use InDesign, not Photoshop, to edit these templates. You can read about why I personally love using InDesign here, and you can download a free trial of InDesign here.

FIVE // We have mini video tutorials right here on our website that you can watch for free. These tutorials will help you get started with using the templates in your Signature Card Set.

SIX // Each week, you simply insert the journaling and the images that you want to include into the templates, export your final designs as JPEG files, then print the JPEG files as if they were normal photos. If you would like to read more about this process, I've written a detailed overview of my weekly process from beginning to end in three separate blog posts: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3.

SEVEN // The two other things you'll need is a binder (I like this one and this one) and some page protectors (like these ones), and you're good to go!

EIGHT // If you keep up with documenting your life every week by using the templates from the Signature Card Set, you will end up with a beautiful album full of precious memories.

NINE // If you're not up for weekly documentation, you can also use the Signature Card Set for monthly documentation. All you have to do is swap out the title card for these ones!

TEN // The sky is the limit—use our Signature Card Set to make a travel album, a baby album, an engagement album, a 'year in review' album, or perhaps a life album for each of your children!
