Hey all!! Happy Friday.
I have been on the go quite a bit lately, my free time is scarce. I was thinking about the blog yesterday, and I thought I’m out enjoying life, so I can’t feel bad about not having anything new for you to see. However, I miss sharing when I don’t blog.
I did want to share a couple things with you today tho. Mostly about Project Life and then some other new goodies I have gotten lately.
I finally got the Project Life App on my iphone. To be honest, I wasn’t really interested in it, but it was free on St. Patrick’s Day. So I thought I would look into it.
I have to say, it’s super easy and a lot of fun to do. I could easily see myself using this each week and Bam!! be done!! Yet, part of me loves the actual stuff that I can play with and see and be more creative with.
Another part of me has guilt that I have this room full of stuff and I should use it.
I did mess around and created this spread from last weekend. This is what our weekends look like now – basketball. Bleacher Butt. However, we had some great friends visiting too and we enjoyed time with them. The guys played some pool while we waited 2 hours for our meal.
2 hours. Really.
The app also lets you create collages like this one. I can see me doing more of these with the app and just printing them 4x6 for my book.
Anyway – I looked into printing costs for this option, and on the app, it’s $1.99 for a 12x12 layout. I looked around and saw that some ladies are using My Digital Studio from Stampin’ Up and getting them at cost. They never did say what that price was. Anyone know?
I do think that I will make a few layouts this way and get them all printed at once. Shipping is $6.99 so I need to make it worth it. Maybe save them up and wait for a free shipping offer?
I also made a choice to try out the Gossamer Blue Life Pages Kits for awhile. I know I had said that I wasn’t going to buy anything for PL, but I caved. They are very pretty.
I’ll try them a couple months and see what I think.
One problem I have found with kits, is simply that they tend to go pretty and coordinate, and it doesn’t always work with my photos. We will see.
This is the current state of my desk. I set up shop to get caught up on PL and I’m not taking it down til I do. I am going to finish up a bit tonight, and then I’ll be caught up.
Honestly, the mess drives me batty.
Also lately, I picked up the new Quick Stitch Kit from Papertrey Ink. I have picked up all of their little stitching projects over the last couple years. I was super happy to get some flower dies for it.
I sat down and die cut a bunch of flowers from all my felts and then some other elements. I’m hoping to take it with me this weekend to have something crafty to do while basketball is going on.
So I have plenty to do – but no time to do it or share!!
I think it will get better!!
