App Tuesday-Print

It’s the first Tuesday of the month I can’t believe it, where are in April already. Last week I did a review on how to print Instagram photos from your Canon Selphy printer. This was a great review if you have a Canon Selphy and you can find that post here.

If you don’t that’s ok because I have a review on a little app that will let you print your 4×4 Instagram photos on your photo printer at home. The app is called Print and the company that makes it is Eurosmartz so the best way to search for this app is to type in Euromsmartz and then pick the Eurosmartz app with the purple icon. I will have a link in the post for you though as well.

I found out about this app from Jessica Sprague and I tested it out and it works so of course I am going to share this information with you. I know you want to get all those Instagram photos printed and into a scrapbook or mini album!

After you have downloaded the app from the app store you are going to need to head on over to Eurosmartz.com and download the software so that your iPhone/iPad/Android device can talk to your printer through your computer for these 4×4 prints. You can access the download page here.

Your next step is to adjust the settings on your computer so that the software can tell your printer to print these photos at the right size. Here is a screen shot of the settings that you need to have in place under the images tab.

After you have set up the settings you have to head on over to your iPhone/iPad/Android device and make sure that the settings over there are correct.

These settings are based on an iPad/iPhone but I am sure that the concept is the same for an Android. The main thing is that you want your app to be told the same thing that you told the software on your computer.

The image size should be set to fill page and the image orientation should be set to landscape because that is the same settings that you applied to the software.

Once all your settings are in place you are ready to print and have a grand ole time with your Instagram photos!

Have you been printing out all those Instagram photos?

iPhone and scrapbooking

I have said it before and I’ll say it again. All those photos that you take with your phone are all the pictures of your everyday lives. Do you want to leave these photos just trapped in your phone or do you want to tell your story?

I want to share all my photos on my phone not just on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Instagram or whatever other site you share your photos too.

I want to share them in my scrapbook so when the family is hanging out and they want to reminisce we can because our story was told right down to the little details of why my child was wearing that cute outfit or how they made that huge mess in my kitchen. What about those photos that you take when your out and about doing things. You take those photos for a reason but those photos get lost when all you do with them is post them to whatever social media outlet your using.

I want to help you get those photos off your phone and into a quick scrapbooking layout. What can I do to help you? Let me know the comments and I will create a tutorial for you so that there will be no more guessing on what to do with those photos.

Crafting Apps for Sale

Just a quick note as of right now the Martha Steward CraftStudio App is available for free on all apple devices. The app is usually $4.99 but it is free until July 8th. If you’re a scrapper then you’re a crafter!!! So go check out the app if you can and let me know what you think. I just downloaded it and plan on checking it out myself! :

So I finally got a chance  to check out this free Martha Stewart app and I think its pretty neat. The App is easy enough to use. You can create three types of cards, a horizontal card (prints as 5×7), vertical card (prints as 5×7) or a square card (prints 5×5). There are cute layouts for these cards, such as, birthday, Everday Life, Doily Lace, and Nature. These are the free themes after that there are a bunch of themes that you can buy for a $1.99 which doesn’t seem to bad but I don’t see myself buying any themes any time soon!! You can add your own pictures to the cards as well. So basically you can create custom cards right on your iPad. Considering the app was free I would say it is very neat. You can order the prints directly from Snapfish, you can send the card to your own printer, and you can share the card via email, Facebook, and Twitter. All in all I would give the app an A. I definitely will be playing with it some more!

The Michaels App is available for iPhones and Android phones and is a great app to have because you will never forget a coupon. The app also provides exclusive coupons for people who have the app. You should go ahead and download it! It has definitely saved my money :)
