Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! I hope your having a wonderful Holiday Season. I can hardly believe that December is just about over! I’m always amazed at how quickly the years seesm to slip by.
I’ve been doing something a little different the last few months with our Project Life Albums. I’ve been using the Project Life App to create any “Inserts” or “Special Occasions” for our Family Project Life Album.
There has been two issues I have had when it has come to document life by the week and then by the month. When special occasions come up I have typically just added inserts into that week.
- Falling Behind: When I end up with “Extra” layouts that need to be done I find it hard to get to them. This means that the picture sit around and I ended up feeling stress out over getting them in my album.
- Too Much Stuff: When I have these extra layouts they ended up expanding my album. I’m already using 2 albums a year and I feel like they are filled to the brim.
I adore the Project Life App but at the same time I really enjoy the physical product and haven’t wanted to switch to only using the App.
During the last few months as things have been so busy I have loved using the Project Life App to create these inserts. It is helping me get these pages done right away.
Here are the pages that I have done for December. I used 2 different kits within the App, and it has worked out perfect. I also like the fact that I get to use different kit that I don’t have in the physical version.
The only thing that is a little difficult is the planning out of how your pages will look when you insert them into your album. The photo above will be the first insert you see.
Then you will begin seeing two layouts together like they are below.
We have one more Christmas event that I will have photos for. I should have at least 4 more layouts I will be doing in the App for Christmas.
I love that my everyday photos can continue and I don’t have to try and “fit” anything in to those spots.
Using the Project Life App in this way has been the perfect fit for me. I love being able to use the Physical product and the App together.
