Scrapping with a Kit

I have shared with you before how wonderful the Close To My Heart Workshops on the Go are because they come with everything that you need to create layouts. I love these kits because they enable me to create layouts quickly that look beautiful. All the current Workshops on the Go are going to be retired at the end of August so if you have had your eye on one you are going to want to grab one before they are gone!

Now that I have shared with you how awesome these kits are I also wanted to share with you that I decided to give a Paper Camellia kit a try to see what an outside kit was all about. These kits are put together with different product lines and I have to admit that I really enjoyed working with the May Paper Camellia kit. You can check it out here and I believe it is even on sale right now.

I also broke out my wonderful little new Janome sewing machine and I can’t even begin to tell you how easy it was to do some stitching on my layout with this cute little machine. I have always shied away from sewing on my layouts but for some reason this little machine makes sewing a whole lot easier and I love the look of sewing on a layout. I added a few embellishments that came with the kit and added some color shine to some of the wood veneers and called this layout done after I added my journaling and the date.

The whole layout came together in about 15 minutes and I love that I was able to get this layout done so quickly. I have said before how my main goal is always to get the story told and not spend hours on a layout.

Now since I have been talking about scrapbooking with the project life app all week I also wanted to share with you a layout that I had printed through Persnickety Prints and then just added a little journaling and a few stickers to it so that the layout itself didn’t look so flat. Don’t get me the wrong the prints from Persnickety Prints are gorgeous but the layouts do feel a little flat to me since the photos themselves are not in individual pockets and have no embellishments what so ever on them. I wanted to share with you that just by adding a little to these layouts that you can make them feel more personal to you.

I am working on catching up with my project life album from last year and being able to complete both of these layouts in 20 minutes last night was wonderful for me. I am now almost done with September from last year!

Project Life Process Video Week 2

Another week means that I have a new process video sharing with you how to incorporate the Rhonna Designs app into your project life. I usually pick the photos first that I want to scrap and then I look at them (don’t we all decide if a photo is scrap worthy). The next thing I decide is whether or not the photo has any blank areas and I look for places to add embellishments.

Just because I tend to be a simple scrapper, it doesn’t mean that I don’t want to have any embellishments! I have created a quick process video for you on how I add some embellishments to my photos and then create a project life app layout with those photos. Make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel so you will get updates when I have posted a new video!

In this video I also share with you how to change the line spacing, justification and size of your journaling with the project life app. These features are not always so easy to find within the app so I figured it would be a good time to go over them. Of course I have completed another layout as well that is all ready to be printed!

Now that I have shown you how to scrapbook with the project life app lets talk a little bit about taking the right photo to scrabook. I don’t know about you but I have missed that perfect shot a few times in my life but now that I have taken some of the courses in the Ultimate Photography Bundle I don’t think that missing great photos will be a problem any more.

Here is just a brief look at what comes with the Ultimate Photography bundle. I love the eBook that is all about iPhone photography. I generally take most of my photos with my iPhone even though I have a beautiful Nikon DSLR camera.

Did I mention that their are amazing bonuses that come along with the bundle as well! The bonus classes alone are worth more then what you pay for this amazing bundle.

Don’t wait though because the Ultimate Photography bundle will be gone before you know it, as a matter of fact the sale ends in 4 days!


Little Hoots App Review

Quote using the Little Hoots App

Quote using the Little Hoots App

For the longest time I have used the Momento app and I still like the Momento app until I lost all of my conversations due to having to restore my phone as a brand new phone. This meant that everything that I had saved to the app was lost and was not backed up. Their are ways to create a backup but I completely forgot about this option before I restored my phone as a brand new phone.

The other issue that I have with the Momento app is that in order to get something printed as a photo I would have to screen shot my phone and then I would tend to forget to print the screen shot to add it to my layouts or to my project life. With the Little Hoots app I do not believe that I am going to have these problems because what happens is that you are creating an actual photo with the app of the quote or conversation that you want to save.

I think my favorite part about the app is creating the conversations. If you have kids then you know their are going to be times when you have a conversation that you are going to want to save and I love how easy it is to create a conversation in the app to then save and print out as a photo. Watch the short video and then let me know what you think about the Little Hoots App.

The app is free in the app store and does have in app purchases that I do not think I need at this time.

What I really like about the conversations part is that you pick a layout and add photos that go along with the conversation. This truly makes saving conversations a snap!
