Got Pictures?

Do you take lots of pictures?  With the convenience of having a camera on almost every cell phone now, more and more people are taking even more photos then ever before. You don't need to remember to bring the "good" camera with you to an event and even every day ordinary photos are being documented.  Now here is the question, what do you do with those photos after you take them? Do you put them on facebook, instagram or twitter?  Maybe if they were cute or funny. Do they get uploaded to your computer or backup hardrive with thought of printing some of them some day? How many actually get printed so they can be looked at in the future? 

Scrapbooking used to be pretty popular but you needed lots of time to make a layout just right, or needed the perfect photos to use and your average snap shots and life just didn't make the cut to put all that time into. 

That has changed! 

Your everyday life are things you want to remember. The cute fun stuff your kids do, or the places you visit with your spouse. Maybe even just the traffic jam caused by a gaggle of geese crossing the road! (yes, that did happen to us just last week, my son didn't find the irony of them honking at the cars nearly as funny as I did)  The Project Life style of scrapbooking will get those photos off your phone and into an album so that they can be looked back upon even after you have upgraded to a new phone.

And it is EASY! Really EASY! And it doesn't take much room, supplies or money!  All you need to get started is an album, protectors, a kit and your photos. That's it! You can embellish more if you want but it's cute enough without the need for more and your pictures will be treasured like they should be. 

Wouldn't it be great to look back in 10 years and see how much has changed, (or stayed the same!) 
Let me help you get those memories out of your phones and computers and into something you can hold and keep.

It's here!!!!!

And no it's not the new catalog. Not yet anyway. What I am over the moon excited for today is the new Project Life app!!!  It is in the app store and has a minimal cost of only $2.99 with some in app purchases available.

So why is it that I am so excited about this app? Well I have shown you how I try to do my project life, by taking pics each week, and using memento to store my information and journaling, then I use pic frame and upload all my pictures each week to walgreens. That part I usually am very good about remembering to do.

What I am not so good at doing is getting the photos actually INTO the albums. It is not a hard or complicated process or even time consuming. Why it is so hard is all of my scrapbooking stuff is in my stamp room in the basement and I just don't get down there as often as I want. So it never fails, I pic up my printed pics and I have tons leftover because I have printed at any size I think I may want or I don't have the right size picture even after doing that.

This app helps that!! I have been using a printable PL sheet in my daytimer up until the app came out which was nice because I could kind of sort of plan the layout in advance and have all the journaling notes right there with it. But I couldn't really see where the pics would be, I would just have a note in the space.

This was my insert in my planner. I don't have any notes in any of the picture spots yet because the week was not over and I wasn't sure where I wanted them. 

Here is the 2nd page of the layout for last week in the new app. 

I can see exactly what size pic I want in what spot and change it if I want to. This way I don't waste extra money printing pictures I don't need.  I am very excited to use this app. I know many people will do their entire pages and print them. I think it will just be a sort of planning guide for me. Not even sure the cards I put on there are what I will end up using on the layout  but it's nice to have them.
