Collect App Review

 In the past I was using the Photo 365 app but this year I got hooked on the Collect App. This app works exactly the same way as the Photo 365 app in that you are prompted to collect a photo a day. There is a free version of the app and a paid version of the app. The paid version of the app allows you create a video of all your photos as well as it gives you different designs to choose from that you can add to your photos.

For $1.99 I think its worth it to have the pro version of the app so that you can pick the different designs to lay your photos out on! You can print these collected photos and use them in your project life or scrap them regularly. I love the simple layout of what the photos look like once you have collected them.

I really enjoy the journaling aspect of the collect app. The journaling enables me to write why I took that photo or what I am trying to remember. All this information is in the note part or you can put it in the title of the photo.

I love the collage aspect of the app that allows me to share my month after I have collected all my photos. I think this is one of my favorite aspects of the app and I plan to incorporate the collages into my project life album this year.

The app is very easy to use, upon opening it you see the monthly calendar and you pick the day that you want to add your photo to. Once you have picked your day you are taken to your photo albums or you can snap a picture.

Next you add your title and notes and you are all done. You can save the photo to your camera roll or you can send the photo to email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Dropbox, or Flickr.

You can also add multiple photos to one day which allows you to collect all your memories and thoughts from one day!

I am no longer using the Photo 365 app and I have fallen completely in love with the Collect app!

Check out my February Collage and one of my first photos for the month of March!

Do you use a photo a day app?


Music & Scrapbooking

music and scrapbooking

I don’t often do this but every once in a while I just find something that I have to share with you. Beyonce secretly released a new album today and it is HOT. I could definitely see myself listening to this while I scrapbook. Now I know everyone doesn’t have the same taste in music but from what I have heard so far I think this is a must have purchase for me!

Now if Beyonce doesn’t do it for you there is always some Tim McGraw that just might do the trick. Especially the first song on the album which is titled Two Lanes of Freedom and is song that was made for us scrapbookers! The entire album is wonderful and I personally feel is a must!

Another artist that I am always listening to when I scrapbook is Alicia Keys! I have every single one of her albums and she is simply amazing! I don’t even think I can pick a favorite album from her because I love them all so much.

Last but not least I love Blake Shelton and his albums are always great music to listen to when I am scrapbooking.

What do you like to listen to when you are scrapbooking or crafting? Let me know in the comments maybe I can find some new music!
