It’s Finally Here!

Finally the wait is over and the Project Life app by Becky Higgins has been released I have been trying to write this review all day long but the little munchkin of mine had other plans for me today. I did manage to play with the app, which is simply AMAZING.

First things first, when you first launch the app Becky has a really thoughtful message for all us scrappers which I thought was a really nice touch. From there you get a brief tutorial on how to create a layout.

The next time that you launch the app you get a screen that looks like this.

I love that you have options to create a layout, create a photo collage, check your library or get info. The library is where the layouts that you have created are saved within the app.

In less than ten minutes you can create a layout, share it to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Instagram for the social media outlets. You can also message or email the layout directly from the app as well. Of course once you have exported the layout in the size that you prefer, 12×12 or 8×8 you can save it to your phone and then order prints through Shutterfly or Persnickety Prints.

Not only can you create layouts in the Project Life app but you can also create photo collages (this is the same thing as all the collage apps that I have shared with you in the past). There are 4×6 collage sizes and 6×8 collage sizes. The best thing about the collage option is that the templates for all the different collages that us scrapbookers love are right there at our fingertips! You can even use the filler cards that are available.

You get 11 different layouts for free with the app purchase and then there are extra layout packs that are going to cost you $.99 cents. You don’t need these extra layout packs unless you want that specific layout. You get 4 kits with the app which are Kraft, Midnight, School Themed and the Strawberry kit.

You can purchase several other kits between $.99 and $1.99 but the 4 kits that it comes with are enough to get you started and creating. Personally I know that I am going to have to purchase the Amy Tangerine Plus One Mini Kit and the Just Add Color Edition in order for me to feel satisfied!

All I can say is that this app is super easy to use, a ton of fun and a great way to get those photos off of your phones and into your albums in no time at all. By having this app you literally do not have any excuse to not get your photos off of your phones and into albums. There is no reason why you can’t document your lives!

Here are a few layouts that I created today.

So what are you waiting for go and get the app now and share the layouts that you create in the Facebook Group!

P.S. You still have until the end of the day to enter the giveaway here and get yourself some goodies!

Fuzel App Tutorial

I have written many app reviews since I started sharing my favorite apps and I have written two on Fuzel, but I have never done a video on this wonderful collage app. Every scrapbooker should have a photo collage app and I have two that I use quite a bit. Fuzel is still my favorite because of it’s easy use and because it is free! Who doesn’t love a free app that works wonderfully.

With all that being said enjoy the video and let me know what collage app is your favorite.

Phonto App Tutorial

It has been a while since I have shared updated information with you about the Phonto app. Phonto is one of my favorite apps for how easy it is to add text to your photos. Not only can I add text to my photos but I can also journal directly from my phone, print out on my Selphy and add it to my project life or scrapbook layout.

Here is an example of how I added my journaling to a layout that I recently did.

Not only does Phonto have tons of fonts to choose from but you can also add your own fonts to the app through your computer. Here is a tutorial video that I created so that you can see what Phonto can do.

Do you have a favorite app for journaling with your phone?
