Heart Shape Photo Collage with 2×2 Prints

  • add 8 photos to the 2×2 Persnickety Prints Photo Collage
  • cut out shape (heart) on separate card stock or chipboard
  • arrange individual 2×2″ prints on shape and adhere as desired
  • flip shape upside down and cut the overlay of prints around the shape

3. Screen shot and print your favorite memes and news articles

In general, we don’t recommend printing screen shots, the resolution isn’t optimal. However, screen shots will translate ok with small prints.

4. Trace favorite fonts from the computer monitor

Aubrey reveals that she doesn’t like her handwriting (I disagree!). She types words on her computer using her favorite handwriting font (Author) and literally puts the paper against her backlit screen (iPad works best) and lightly traces with a pencil, filling it in later with Stabilo pens. BONUS: Persnickety Prints custom journals have been ink tested for bleed… pages are THICK and do not bleed through!

5. Digital Journaling with our free & easy Software

For a quick page, don’t forget that Persnickety collage prints are customizable! We offer FREE graphics (under the ART category) and over 50 free fonts to add dates, and journal right over photos or in their own block (delete the photo placeholder first).

6. Use your Camera Roll as a Photo Collage

Do you over-click that camera to get the right shot, ending up with different versions of the same shot? Heidi Swapp recently showed me this hack — screen shot your camera roll and print them all in one tiny collage! Of course like tip #3, screen shots are best printed small, and these prints end up really small, but PERFECT for journals, planners, wallets and mini books!
