If you are interested in scrapbooking more of your life, but haven't taken the plunge into Project Life - because it seems like a lot to keep up with, because it requires too much time, because the supplies easily take over your work space, because you don't have photoshop or whatever the reason - this is your answer. Seriously.
You can literally complete full pages in just a few minutes and do it all on your phone. I completed the layout above in less than five minutes the very first time I used the app.
Everything is very intuitive and the original app price (currently $2.99) includes a very decent variety of journaling cards, fonts and layout options. You can also purchase additional journaling cards and layout options as in-app add ons.
Because I do pen and paper style of Project Life (not digital), I will probably only use this layout function for a special project here and there - not for our family album. But, it could totally be used for that purpose. I have a few ideas up my sleeve for putting this to good use in the next few months.
Before I had this app, I had to resize my photos to 3x4 and then make a digital collage to get two photos onto one 4x6 print (The end result looked like the photo above.) I could then print the image and cut the print in two to slide the photos into the 3x4 pockets of my album.
The Project Life app allows me to get to the same end result in about 15 seconds. Whew! This is going to be a huge help to my time investment in my current pen-and-paper process. Plus, I can work on that part of the process anytime that I have downtime and have my phone handy.
This app feels like an all around scrapbooking game changer - both for scrapbook-aholics and scrapbooking wannabe's. Thank you, Becky Higgins and team!
