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!

Guest Posting at Digital Scrapbooking HQ

selphy & collectWith so much going on over at Take Heart Ideas I completely forgot to share with you that I guest posted over at Digital Scrapbooking HQ yesterday. It was an honor for me to be able to guest post for Melissa who is currently on maternity leave. Melissa has wonderful classes available on her site for how to scrap digitally with Photoshop Elements. I have taken some of her classes and they are simply amazing! To learn more about Melissa and her classes pop on over to Digital Scrapbooking HQ.

I shared with Melissa and her readers how I use the Collect app and Pic Stitch app to get my photos printed from my iPhone and into my album in 20 minutes or less. It was a ton of fun creating this post especially since it is a question that I often see asked. I also created a tutorial video for you about the Pic Stitch app and how you can print your photos from your iPhone using a Canon Selphy printer.

You can watch the video here and don’t forget to pop on over to Melissa’s site and check out my tutorial about the Collect app.

Do you get your iPhone photos into your albums on a consistent basis? Let us know in the comments.

App Review – Big Lens

I have a new favorite app. I know that you have probably heard of Big Lens before just like I have but I am always hesitant to spend money on apps even when they are$.99 cents. We all know that $.99 cents can add up if you don’t pay attention to what you are spending!

Any who Big Lens is a great app that allows you to edit photos on your iPhone that make the photos look like you have taken them with your DSLR camera. How does Big Lens do this? The app gives you the ability to create a focus on your photo and blur everything else out. You can even adjust what the aperature should be like along with adding a filter to your photo and adjusting the lens that you would have used to take the photo!

You can also adjust the amount of focus and blur that you would like on your photo. You can change your photo to be a photo that you would have taken in HDR mode as well. After you have played around with your photo and made tons of tweeks and changes you can compare what the orignial photo and your new photo look like.

The only places that you can add your photo directly from the app are Mail, Twitter, Facebook, Dropbox, Picassa and of course you can save your photo to your phone and then upload it wherever you want.

I can’t speak enough about how much fun this app is to play with and all the wonderful different effects that you can create with your photos. The app has just seemed to open up a whole new world for me. Now that I sound like the biggest nerd ever, I am going to stop writing and share some of my photos with you that I have created with the Big Lens app.
