project life app

Hi friends!  Any project lifers out there?  I've been using project life for several years.  I completed 2009 & 2010 as a catch up project.  2013 was done in the "traditional" weekly style.  I didn't really care for the weekly set up.  It was turning out to be more stressful than fun.  So, for 2014 I made two changes - I'm using a 6x8 album and I only make pages every month or so.  Sometimes I just have 1 page, sometimes more.  I do what I want to do and that's that.  I enjoy working that way.  And, of course, sometimes I don't order prints for several months at a time, but that's ok too. 

Recently Becky Higgins came up with a game changer.  A project life app!  I looooooove it.  I'm so excited to start 2015 ... I plan on going back to a weekly format.  You can literally put together a page in minutes.  It's SO easy!  If you haven't checked it out yet (and you have an iPhone) RUN to the app store.  It's the best $2.99 I ever spent!  The plan is to do a weekly spread - 1 ... 2 ... however many pages I need for that week.  I'm not sure if I'm going to print the pages and put them in a 12x12 album or ship them off to be printed in a book somewhere.  I'll have to figure that out later.

Another fun thing ... you can make a collages like the one I made of our selfie at the beach in February.  And even more fun - you can save it in your photo album and use it as a screen saver. 

PS - 2011 & 2012 pictures are still on the flash drive.  I have the albums and cards ... all I have to do is print out the pictures and put the albums together.  No big deal, right!?

  1. OK, so first I love the idea of a 6x8 book. Second I can't wait for the app to come out on Android!!!! I'm sure I'll have tons of questions for you!!

  2. I second what Becky said.....I am not so patiently waiting for the Android app. I am thinking that it may be what finally gets me actually doing PL instead of admiring everybody else's.
