You Don’t Need a Computer

video on how to add digital productsI was playing around with my phone last night and I was super tired. I wanted to use the digital products that I had purchased for my 30 days of thankful album but I was unsure of how to get these products onto my phone without having to get onto the computer. You can grab these digital products here and let me say as usual Cathy Zielske doesn’t disappoint! You can see in my account that I have only purchased Cathy’s products and only for the 30 days of thankful, which I did last year and then again this year.

Without further ado here is my tutorial on how to get digital products onto your phone without a computer.

A few things that you need to know in order to make this work:

1. You need a Dropbox account. If you don’t have one you can get one by clicking here.

2. You need the Phonto app. If you don’t have it you can grab it here.

3. As you see in my video sometimes you have to close apps down you do this by double tapping on your home button and swiping the apps up

Stay tuned because tomorrow I will be sharing what I have done with my thankful album and sharing some tips on how I am adding some variety to it.

Week in the Life

collect app & week in the lifeI have to say that I never thought about doing this particular project. I heard about it from a few of my scrappy friends and decided late Monday night that I would give this a go. Hence my Monday doesn’t have many photos for a project called A Week In The Life. This is a very photo heavy project and I am trying to document our family’s daily life. You can get more information about this project by going to Ali Edwards site and you can really see what the project is about because she has been sharing her days on her blog.

I generally take the majority of my photos with my iPhone so I decided to stick with that method for this project. Then I realized that I really wanted to get into the story of why I took that food and that is where the Collect App came into play for me. I started adding my photos and really journaling about the photo and what I saw when I took the photo.

I am also journaling every night in my journal about our day and getting deeper into my thoughts and feelings about the day. I still have not decided how I am going to put this whole project together but the Collect app is helping me keep all my thoughts and photos in one spot.

I created a short video for you all to see how I am using the Collect App to document my Week in The Life.

 

Here are a few of my photos from yesterday

Mini Calendars

make it monday fall blog hop

Welcome to my site and the Make it Monday blog hop. I hope you have been enjoying these hops on Monday. You should have come to my site from Connie who showed you how to make a faboulous Fall banner. If I am the first person that you are seeing in this hop then you can start at the beginning with Gina who has a tutorial on how to upcyle plastic packaging. You can see the full list of the hop at the bottom of the post as well.

This post is all about how to make mini monthly calendars for your project life/pocket scrapbooking title pages. If you are anything like me you might be tackling project life from a monthly point of view. I have said it before scrapping weekly would drive me insane. My entire album is being done monthly and I am pretty sure that I will have two volumes this year, can you believe how crazy that is. All my photos are currently printed up until September which we just finished and I am almost positive that Shutterfly will have their 101 free prints after Halloween so I am going to wait for that and then print September and October.

I went searching on Pinterest to see what other people had done and everything that I found just seemed way to complicated to duplicate. I got to thinking that there has to be an easier way to make this happen. This is where my iPhone came in to play and I had an aha moment. I was extremly happy with my results and I am able to make tiny little calendards directly from my phone and print them on my Selphy and have a title card in five minutes or less.

Here is the video sharing with you how to make this happen for your own project life albums. For those of you that would like a monthly calendar but would like to highlight which week you are scrapping on the calendar you can do that to. I share all these steps in the video below.

Here is the complete list of apps that I used the tutorial to make these calendars.

1. Phonto

2. A Beautiful Mess

3. Square Sized

4. Project Life

5. Fuzel

Here is what the 3.5×3.5 calendar looks on a project life card. I haven’t printed my October one yet because I am waiting to see what deals Shutterfly is going to have for me. Namely my free 101 prints!

Now that you have learned how to make these cute little calendars for project life/pocket scrapbooking will you give it a try? And once you have tried it you will need a place to store the title cards that you have made! This is where the Close To My Heart medium organizer comes into play. I have placed all my project life cards in one sorted by color and I swear this is the best thing I have ever done. I scrap by color but the same theory would work if you wanted to organize your stash of cards by theme. You can purchase these awesome organizers HERE and you can click HERE to see how I have organized my cards.
