The Inspired Notebook

I know most of us are digital photographers and every month we need to store our digital photographs. This can be a daunting, mundane task.  So, I designed CD/DVD label and cover Photoshop templates.  Start with a quick video tutorial to add your photos and images to the templates.

Next, download FREE Blank Avery templates to print at home. Instructions, printing tips, and a list of compatible Avery products are included. I purchased printable labels from Target and chose to print the cover on white card stock. I cut out the cover using my cutting board and folded it in half. You can even write a message or playlist inside the cover!

If you don't have any clear CD cases at home, you can make your own!
  1. Cut a sheet of vellum or craft paper about the size of the label
  2. Fold in half and sew the left and right edges
  3. Simply slip your CD inside the pocket

    1. I take photographs everyday and I am just not willing to leave 30 days of captures to chance. That's why I back up my photographs every month.
