CoffeeShop Storyboards 3!

I love making storyboards for blogging and printing, and here is my newest, the CoffeeShop Storyboards 3! I have quite a few free storyboards and I plan on designing many more.  If you are looking for a specific type of storyboard, please leave details in the comments.  If it is something I think my readers might use, I might design it and put it up here for free download!  I am always looking for new ideas for actions and storyboards.

And yes, I took a photo of a brown bag and had a great time turning it into a display "ad".  I wish I could design something and stick with it, but I can't help myself.  Thank goodness I am not so fickle with husbands!  ;-)

Simply add your own images using the clipping mask (download my free Group-It action if you want to save time or are new to clipping masks). You can use textured paper for the background (just drag and drop under the clipping masks layers and Ctrl-T to fit). I resized, sharpened and added a drop-shadow to the storyboard example below using my CoffeeShop Web Drop Shadow action.

NOTE:  This storyboard is ~8 x 8 in, 300 pixels/inch.  If you want to print it larger, please resize BEFORE adding your images.  You can do this with  most of my storyboards on this site.  Resize to the proper print size, and then add your background and images.  

Download the free CoffeeShop Storyboard 3 at  MediaFireNote: This is not an action!  Open this storyboard like any other image.

  1. Hi Rita, I would love to see a storyboard similar to one Matt Kloskowski showed in a podcast last fall. I tried doing it in PSE9 but I don't seem to have the alignment guide that photoshop has so it's looking a little sloppy. Here's a link to his podcast

    Thanks for all of your hard work!

  2. Love all your stuff and can't wait to try this template out. Do you have any with 7 photo slots for project 365?

  3. Love these storyboards! Thanks so much! Love ALL your stuff! And I also love the new, clean, look of your blog! Fabulous! :)

  4. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies, under the Page 4 post on May. 10, 2011. Thanks again.

  5. This is sweet, Rita! Thanks so much! While I have learned how to make my own, I still find myself heading to your templates to find something! :)

    And I love your new shopping bag! hehe!

  6. Thanks so much!!! I love all your storyboards, and I am always looking for more! I'm not picky, but I really really like these ones with the different size and orientations on them. But everything you make is amazing! Thanks again!

  7. These are awesome, as usual! I've been really looking for some storyboards with an odd number of spaces, like 5 or 7. These would come in handy for when you want an even number of photos, but an extra space for a title, quote, or a few words. That would be really neat!

  8. Duh! You DO have them! You're the best, Rita :-).

  9. Thanks for another great storyboard. BTW loving your blog revamp.

  10. Thanks Rita. Cute pictures you used in the storyboard.

    I like the new look!

  11. For some reason I can not use them on my CS5. I have others that just turn into Actions. I am just learning so I might be doing something wrong. Can ya help me out with this issue. Its not just this storyboard but like 8 of them


Thank you for taking the time to leave a message, I love reading them! All comments are personally moderated by me and I will post and answer them them as soon as possible.
