Creative Christmas Crafting

make it mondayDecember 1st is here and with that the Creative Christmas bundle is almost gone as well. At 90% off this is the deal of the century and is jam packed with so many projects to make your Christmas crafting easy and fun. Today I am going to show how I incorporated some of the products from the other designers that participated in putting this bundle together.

Margareta has created an entire pocket scrapbooking kit for this bundle and it is gorgeous. In preparation of documenting my December Daily this year I downloaded the files and put them on my phone. I know that I will want to create some collage photos for my December Daily album and these pocket cards are perfect. I even played around in the Aviary app to add some effects to one of the 3×4 cards. You can take these cards and make them your own by sticking them into a photo editing app.

I took Margareta’s cards and put them in a project life layout via the project life app so that you could see some of the cards that are available. I also want to share that whether the card is 3×4 or 4×6 it conforms to the pocket that you are placing the card in, as you can see I used 4×6, 4×4 and 3×4 sizes in these layouts. I edited the snowman card with the Aviary app which was free for the whole month of November along with all the effects that are available in the app but their are tons of apps that you can use to edit these cards to make them fit your December Daily theme.

Here is the catch, if you like these cards or need some help with crafting this holiday season then this bundle is for you but Today is the last day that you can get this bundle at 90% off. After today the bundle will no longer be available. Their are other digital scrapbooking kits available in the bundle, an Advent Calendar activity, Christmas cards, a Calendar that you can create for the new year, embroidery patterns and more. Don’t miss out on this amazing bundle of crafty goodies. I even forgot to mention the Cricut and Silhouette cut files that are also available in the bundle. You can grab the bundle by clicking HERE.

If you would like to see what some of the other designers have created by using this bundle you can hop on over to Janet where she shares with you how she likes to make a digital template her own and a few template tricks using her products from the Creative Christmas Bundle and I am hoping that you came to me from Kristie who showed you how to jazz up printables to create unique cards with minimum time & effort.

The next deal that is available is amazing and is also only available today only. Both of these offers end at 11:59 pm on December 1st.

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

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!
