I have talked many times about my
obsession love of lists. See one of those posts here. Over the years I have created a few templates that I use over and over such as a grocery list and menu planner. As part of my self-education in Photoshop, I decided to tackle some of the design features and see if I could create something a little more fun and colorful than the standard utilitarian documents I have used for years.
I have had a love-hate relationship with Photoshop for the eleven months I have been using it. I mostly love it because of the totally cool things you can do with it, but the complexity and “non-user” friendly aspects of it can be frustrating. It is not a package you can sit down and master in just a few hours. For me, the best way to tackle it has been to attempt new projects so I am always looking for opportunities to use some of the features I have not used in the past.
For this project I wanted to play with the design aspects a little more versus the photo editing functionality. In the design world, I would say my project was on the pre-school level, but I definitely learned something new which is always my goal. To top it off I came out with fun new lists to use. Here is my new menu planner.
And my new grocery list.
And because I know a few of you out there are list lovers like me, here is a download you can use for your own meal planning and grocery shopping. Just open the link below, save, and then print them out each week when you are planning meals and your grocery shopping trip.
Hope you enjoy!
