Fun Interactive Mini Album Incorporations

Well hello there and welcome to my little home on the net. If this is your first time here, welcome have a look around and learn all about how to get those photos off of your phones and into albums quickly and easily. I hope you have been enjoying the hop so far, you should have come from Melissa over at Digital Scrapbooking HQ where you learned all about how to create a layout.

Today my post post is all about a cute little mini album that I have created with one sheet of paper. I will not take credit for this idea but I will definitely share the video with you for this adorable little mini album that I found on YouTube. When I saw this tutorial I thought it would be perfect for Halloween since it is one of my favorite holidays to scrap and I always have tons of photos. I love the colors, I love the photos and I love the embellishments. Now that I am with Close To My Heart I also love the stamps that they have.

Ok enough about how awesome it is to scrap Halloween. I made this cute little mini album with the Scaredy Cat paper line, which I must share with you out of the whole paper pack their are only two pieces of paper that have to be used only for scrapping Halloween, all the other paper is Halloween colors but it is generic enough for you to use for anything.

Scaredy Cat Paper Pack

For this mini album I used the Halloween one and created this adorable mini album following the instructions in the video posted above. I think this is a great way to incorporate an interactive element to your project life pages or to a regular scrapbook page. I also think these little one page mini albums are perfect for my little one to use when she wants to scrap with me or if you want a quick and easy little gift that you can give to someone.

I also used the Scaredy Cat Complements and assortment to finish up my mini album and layout. Lastly I stamped these adorable little Halloween figures. Some I heat embossed and some I colored with copics and others I just left as is! I used the Frightfully Fun Stamp set for this which I then fussy cut out! Now we are all ready for our Halloween photos which let me say thanks to project life all my photos are currently printed and in my album! This is a feat that I have never accompolished before, so I am very pleased with my decision to incorporate pocket page scrapping into my life. This little mini album fits perfectly into a 4×6 pocket page as well all you have to do is stick in the last page into the pocket and leave the rest hanging out of pocket.

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.

project life app

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!
