Twenty22 Chapter 8: August

August-BlogPost

Chapter 8 in our 2022 Family Yearbook is complete. I found that I did not take many pictures this month. August was weird. I just did not feel like doing much during the month. The weather was extremely hot and humid-hottest August recorded in the Tampa area. All I wanted to do was stay inside and dream of fall. I was able to create 2 spreads with the photos + and stories I did have for the month and want to share the results with you today!

I really enjoy documenting in a monthly format. Usually I switch between a weekly and monthly format each year. But I've already decided I will stick with monthly in 2023. I've heard from many of you who are making that switch as well. Some even love the idea of referring to "months" as "chapters." We're creating books. Book have chapters. It just makes sense to me!

The pages were created on my iPad Pro using the following products and mobile apps:

  • The Project Life App
  • One Second Everyday App
  • QR Code & Barcode Reader App
  • Adobe Express App
  • Chapters August Kit

Title Page

August-title

Title page was created by using the Design W template in the Project Life app. One of the title cards from the Chapters August Edition was placed in the center placeholder (there are two 6x4 Title Cards included with each kit). Other placeholders were filled with the white card found in the Neutral Kit in the app. Shadows were turned off on this page. The PDF that is included with all Chapters Kits shows how this is done.

Spread One

August-Spread1

I guess being inside during the month of August has its upside. I started on a home DIY project I've been wanting to do for YEARS! We have this "nook" in our family room that has been screaming for something to be done with it. We live on the water and I've always wanted to cover this wall with shiplap to give the room a coastal feel. I finally started this project and so happy with results thus far. Not only will I add shiplap, but I am refinishing a bar cabinet and will add floating shelves under the TV when its mounted on the wall. I was hoping to have this done by the beginning of October. Unfortunately I ended up testing positive for Covid at the end of August and this project came to a grinding halt for about 10 days. I'm all better now and have started to refinish the bar cabinet. Those pics will be in my September layouts. I will probably to a totally separate post on this project as well! The "Kelly Can Build It" tag was added to the photo in Adobe Express first. Then I exported the photo to my camera roll and added it to my page!

Spread Two

August-Spread2

Spread two has a bunch of random photos. To journal about them, I used a technique I haven't yet used in our yearbook this year. This numbered journaling is something I did throughout my 2021 album. I added a number to the photos and that number references the number and text on the journal card. I find this an easy and effective way to tell our stories when I have several photos that really aren't related to one another! The little circle labels on two of the 4x6 photos on the right side was made with FFT. I just typed a period and made it really big. Then added another text box to add some copy! The filler card on the right is actually the 8x6 journal card from the August kit! When I added the card to the placeholder, I just moved it to have only the one side of the card appear!

Feel free to scan the QR Code to see some other snippets from August! The video was made using the One Second Everyday App. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and view the pages. I really appreciate it! By the way...the September Edition of the Chapters Collection is now available in the shop! So many fun cards in this one!


TWENTY22 CHAPTER SEVEN : JULY

July-blog-header

I'm a little behind in my documenting and that is ok. I had to focus on a home improvement project (which is still ongoing), but I did manage to carve out some time every so often to work on my July pages. Today I am sharing the pages from Chapter Seven (July) in our 2022 Family Yearbook. The pages were created on my iPad Pro using the following products and mobile apps:

Title Page

July-Title

Title page was created by using the Design W template in the Project Life app. One of the title cards from the Chapters July Edition was placed in the center placeholder. Other placeholders were filled with the white card found in the Neutral Kit in the app. Shadows were turned off on this page. The PDF that is included with all Chapters Kits shows how this is done.

Spread One

July-S1

In the spread above you can see the 6x12 Calendar Card from the July Edition of the Chapters Collection. This is placed in the Big Shot A Template from the Project Life app and I will ALWAYS use this template on the left hand side of the first spread for each month! I love consistency! The page on the right is the Big Shot 7 Template, however, it is in its reverse. I wanted the 6x8 placeholder to be on the outside edge of the page. This is a technique I use all the time with the help from the PicTapGo App. This is what I do:

  1. I place all of my photos and journal cards in the template. Do NOT add journaling yet.
  2. Selecting the edit tool in each placeholder, I tap the PicTapGo icon.
  3. When in PicTapGo, select the "crop" icon.
  4. From the options at the bottom of the screen, select the the third icon from the left to reverse the photo or card.
  5. Select the checkmark in the bottom right corner of the screen, then select "done" from the top right of your screen.
  6. You will do this to all images on your layout. But note, you may have journal cards like you see on my page with no word art on the card, so you wouldn't need to reverse that one.
  7. Once your images have been reversed, export your page to your camera roll.
  8. Open the Project Life App again and create a new Editorial Page, selecting the full 12x12 layout.
  9. Place that page you just exported to your camera roll into the template.
  10. Select the edit tool and use the PicTapGo feature to reverse the image, just like you did above.
  11. You photos and cards should now be facing the right direction.
  12. Use the Free Form Text option to add your journaling.

I teach the above technique in a video tutorial and so much more in my Memories Matter and Memories Matter Project Life Design Series Classes. Now through Sunday, September 11 you can save 20% on classes in the Project Life Classroom! You can view the classes by clicking on the "Classes" link in the nav bar at the top of the page. Use code: btschool at checkout. If you have already taken the classes, share the code with a friend who may be wanting to learn how to document their photos and stories using mobile apps!

A template from the 4x6 Pocket Frame No. 1 Kit was also used on this spread. The little labels with text on them are just Free Form Text boxes made with a capital letter "I" using a bold, sans serif font.

Spread Two

July-S2

We had some special guests from Ukraine come and stay with us for about 10 days in July. I won't write about it here in this post as I explain everything on the layout. Just click the layout to enlarge it and read the story! Templates used are Big Shot 7 on the left and Big Shot 6 on the right. The 6x8 journal card, 3x4 and 4x4 filler cards were created in Affinity Photo using the colors from the July Chapters Kit. They resemble the Ukrainian flag. Journaling was added using Free Form Text (just so you know "West Wind" is the name of the team).

Spread Three

July-S3

I continued my story about our Ukrainian visitors in Spread Three, using more filler cards in the blue and yellow colors for consistency! The page on the left is the Big Shot 20 Template. The page on the right is the Set A No. 1 Editorial Template, but in its reverse. I did the exact same steps as written out in Spread One, however, I opened the exported photo in Affinity Photo first, and did my reverse there. Then I added my word art. Once I was happy with my word art, I exported the photo to my camera roll, opened the full page 12x12 Editorial Template in the Project Life App and placed the picture in it. Then I added my journaling using Free Form Text. So love the way this turned out.

Spread Four

July-S4

Really simple pages using journal cards from the July Edition of Chapters and a Pocket Frame template from the 4x6 Pocket Frame No. 2 kit! I think the bokeh cards are perfect! Can you tell the Big Shot 7 template is one of my faves? 

Spread Five

July-S5

I really like incorporating Editorial Pages in our Family Yearbook. The page on the left uses Editorial Template Set 3C No. 4. Love those cookie pics! The page on the right is simply Design A! All filler/journal cards are from the July Edition of Chapters.

End Page

July-End

Feel free to scan the QR Code to see some other snippets from July! I love adding video to my albums using the One Second Everyday App. I am using the free version of this app right now, but I think in 2023 I am going to invest in the paid full version. I've used it consistently each month this year and I fell the paid version will be a good investment!

July is done, now it's time to move on to August! Thanks for reading! If you have any questions, leave them below!


TWENTY22 CHAPTER SIX : JUNE (part two)

+June2022-BlogPost-Pt2

I mentioned in my last blog post I had only 2 or 3 more layouts to do in order to get my June photos + stories documented. That was a total miscalculation! Turns out I needed 8 more spreads to get those stories told! And you know what? I thought it would totally stress me out. But looking at the photos and writing about them brought me so much joy. I was just so happy going through the process of laying out these spreads. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed creating them.

The pages were created on my iPad Pro using the following products and mobile apps:

Check out the pages below!

Spread Seven

JUne-7

I love the colorful weathered wood board included in the June Edition of Chapters. You will see a lot of it on the following spreads. I used it to create the 6x8 and 3x4 journal cards you see above. The title on the large card was done in Affinity Photo for iPad. Isn't that beach house gorgeous?

Spread Eight

June-8

There are lots of random photos on this layout. By using the same pattern journal card on both pages, it helps to make the spread cohesive. Repetition is a good thing. Adding titles and journaling directly on my photos is a technique I use all the time. The Free Form Text option in the Project Life App is so worth purchasing! I use it all the time and it is a great way to add two text boxes on one journal card–a text box for a title and one for the journaling!

Spread Nine

June-9

I wish you could see me right now as I type out this blog post. I have the biggest smile on my face just looking at this page! If you haven't played Tidal Ball on the beach yet, what are you waiting for? Grab the game on Amazon and take it with you on your next trip to the beach! The title on the 6x12 photo was done in Affinity Photo for iPad, exported, and then placed in the layout. I used two text boxes on the journal card. It's a little hard to see, but the first text box (the first 6 lines) is right aligned The second text box (the remaining lines) is left aligned. I did this so the ends of the lines will go on a diagonal to following the angle of the waves in each of the corners. And can you tell I am having a ball with these QR codes??? The videos they go to aren't very long, just little snippets here and there, but so fun to look back on!

The Sun, Sand, Surf, and Tidal Ball filler card is one that I modified from the June Edition of Chapters.

Before-after

I brought the original card into Affinity Photo, covered the original text with two rectangles in the sandy color of the background and then added new text!

Spread Ten

June-10

Oh for the love of puzzles. This is another spread that just fills me up with all kinds of happy! I used a template from the Circle Pocket Frames No. 2 Kit to highlight a few speciality shapes in the puzzle. The journal card is one I created in the Small Print section of the Project Life App using the light blue textured digital paper from the June Edition of Chapters. And can we talk about the right side of the spread? I LOVE THIS!!!! When we completed the puzzle I took a photo of it, knowing I would be using it in an Editorial Templates with a large placeholder in the Project Life App. I exported the page without the text. I brought the page into  Affinity Photo for iPad to add the text (I wanted to access the glyphs of one of the fonts) and exported that to my camera roll. Finally I dropped the completed layout into the full page 12x12 Editorial Template. 

Spread Eleven

June-11

A golf outing and a few more random pics! I'll be honest and say that there are a limited number of journal and filler cards included in the Chapters Monthly Storytelling Collection Kits. And this is on purpose. The kits are meant to limit your choices when it comes to decorative elements. It is the photos and the stories that matter. But these kits have plenty of papers to create your own filler and journal cards, allowing you to expand your creativity and your designs skills whenever you want. You saw in Spread Nine how I altered one of the filler cards. Now here on this spread you can see how I filled a 3x4 placeholder with the green textured paper from the June Edition of Chapters and added a quote to it! Easy peasy! I really like the type treatment of the "cousins," and "brothers" on the right side of the spread. This was just done using the Free Form Text option in the Project Life App and dragging the text box so the letters flowed off the side and bottom of the placeholders. 

Spread Twelve

June-12

Another spread where I used an Editorial Template (it's the page on the left). I may go back and add a bit more journaling to it. I wanted to mention how much I love the North Carolina coastline, its dunes, and all the plants that grow there. I can photograph them all day long! I used a template from the 6x8 Circle Pocket Frame No. 3 Kit for the photos of the flowers.

Spread Thirteen

June-13

My heart is going to BURST!!!! Like the filler card says–"I love these humans." The page on the left was, again, done in an Editorial Template. The text was added in Affinity Photo for iPad. God, these pictures make me so happy!

Spread Fourteen (last one!!!)

June-14

Super fun spread on the left! Love all these women!!! Kristen, Becca, and I always have to get a photo of us on a Carolina beach in the same pose. So fun! And our hats! The girls loved them! Check out that filler card on the right side of the spread. Its original size is 6x12. This was actually an assignment from my Type Talk class that ran earlier in the summer. Students were to select a 3 to 5-letter "summer" word and go on a "found type scavenger hunt," searching for letterforms in food, architecture, foliage, etc., snap a photo of it and place it into exclusive Pocket Frame Templates that were part of the class downloads. "Ocean" was my word and I used it here on this page. The students in the class had AMAZING photos and I will be sharing them on my social media platforms in the coming weeks. The fall session of Type Talk will run in October!

Still LOVING the idea of adding video to my albums. 

Whew! June is done! How is your summer documenting going? Don't worry if you are behind. Summer is busy, you'll get to it when you can! If you have any thoughts or questions, leave them in the comments below! Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to read!


TWENTY22 CHAPTER SIX : JUNE (part one)

June-BlogCover

June was a very busy month for us. There was so much going on and it is taking me a while to combine my photos + stories for those thirty days. When I realized I was already up to 6 spreads for the month and still had 2 or more 3 to go, I figured I would share my June pages in two separate posts.

The pages were created on my iPad Pro using the following products and mobile apps:

Grab a drink and get comfy! There is a lot to talk about here!

June Title Page

JuneTitle-Blog

Title page was created by using the Design W template in the Project Life app. One of the title cards from the Chapters June Edition was placed in the center placeholder. Other placeholders were filled with the white card found in the Neutral Kit in the app. Shadows were turned off on this page.

Spread One

June-1

In the spread above you can see the 6x12 Calendar Card from the June Edition of the Chapters Collection. This is placed in the Big Shot A Template from the Project Life app and I will ALWAYS use this template on the left hand side of the first spread for each month. The filler card on the left page and the "good vibes only" journal card on the right side are  from the June Edition of the Chapters Collection as well. That other journal card you see was created in the Small Prints section of the Project Life app using one of the textured papers from the June Edition of Chapters. I love that paper! If you want to learn how to do that and other tips and tricks within the Project Life App check out my Memories Matter Design Series Class by clicking here. Other products from my shop used on this spread included a template from the 3x4 Pocket Frame No. 1 Kit.

Spread Two

June-2

Pocket Frame Kits used on this spread are from the 4x6 Pocket Frames No. 2 Kit, 4x6 Pocket Frames No. 3 Kit, and the 3x4 Pocket Frames No. 2 Kit. All of the journal cards you see on the spread are ones I made using the Small Print section in the Project Life App with textured digital papers from the June Edition of Chapters. It is a very cohesive page because I am repeating the textures and colors of the journal cards on both sides of the spread! 

Spread Three

June-3

I am ecstatic about this Buffalo Trace spread. Friends, pay attention to the little secret I am about share with you here. I have mentioned it in the past, in my December Daily albums, but I still don't think digital memory keepers take advantage of it as they should. I am talking about company Media Kits.

A Media Kit, also called a Press Kit, is a set of promotional materials a company may offer to the media (reporters, bloggers, videographers) in order to help them write articles about the company. It can include things like logos, fonts, colors, branding do's and don'ts, high-resolution images, etc. If you document stories about some of your favorite brands, whether it is clothing, food, amusement parks, points of interest, and all the things in between, check that company's website to see if they have a media kit for you to download a logo or images that you can include on your pages. 

Case in point: The logo you see on the 6x8 filler card in the spread above was a .png file downloaded directly from the Buffalo Trace website! I created the card in Affinity Photo for iPad and was able to place the logo right on the card. I exported the card to my camera roll, dropped it into my Project Life template, and then adding the journaling.

I did the same thing for the journal card on the right side of the page. There was a png of a single bottle of Buffalo Trace in their media kit. It's like a digital sticker! I created the card in Affinity Photo for iPad (used one of the textured papers from the June Edition of Chapters), pulled in the bottle of bourbon, and just duplicated it a few times! I love the way it turned out!

Let's talk QR Codes. See that one in the upper right corner of the right side of the spread? It's very subtle and not in your face. There is no white background you would normally see. I was able to achieve this in Affinity Photo for iPad by placing the QR code on the image and then changing the blending mode of the layer to "darken." I really like the way this looks! What do you think?

Spread Four

June-4

You may have noticed by now that Big Shot 7 Template is a favorite of mine. I like the 6x8 placeholder on it. It is a great space to do a lot of journaling in, saving the rest of the pockets for photos. This 6x8 journal card was created in Affinity Photo for iPad using a textured paper from the June Edition of Chapters. I made the title on the card in Affinity as well, but the journaling was done in the Project Life App. The "love is sweet" filler card was created in Affinity for iPad, too. This could have easily been done in the Project Life App, but I really wanted to have access to the glyphs of the font I used and couldn't access them in the PL App. The 3x4 journal card was created in the Small Prints section of the Project Life App using one of the textured papers from the June Edition of Chapters. The little heart swoosh is the Ding Dong Extras font I installed in the Project Life App.

Spread Five

June-5

Again, the journal cards were created in the Project Life app using a blue textured paper from the June Edition of Chapters. The filler card in the bottom left was done directly in the Project Life Template (Design A). I used the weather wood textured paper from the April Edition of Chapters (it coordinated with the stage at the brewery). Three text boxes were added by using the Free Form Text option in the app to add the words and dingbat heart. For the image in the 6x8 placeholder, I ended up manipulating one of the files from the 6x8 Pocket Frame No.3 Kit to make it work a little better for me here. It was done in Affinity Photo for iPad.

Spread Six

June-6

Last night on my Instagram feed I asked: "How do you get 17 photos, 3 journal cards, and one filler card in a double-page, pocket-style spread with 16 place holders?" It's by using POCKET FRAMES!!! Can you tell I am loving these Pocket Frame templates? I mean how else would I be able to get all of the photos you see on these pages to fit within one double-page spread??? You can't. They are so handy and a huge asset to have in my digital tool box! I am just over the moon with these. I'm so happy to be able to combine so many photos and stories on a double-page spread like this! 

Have you given Pocket Frames a try? I have a freebie with two circle Pocket Frames for you to test on in this blog post. Give them a try! I know you are going to love them and want more!!! And when you do, check out all of the Pocket Frames available in the Pixels To Pages Shop!

That's it for Part One! I am finishing up the other layouts for June and will share them early next week, if not sooner! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to leave them below!!!

 


TWENTY22 CHAPTER FIVE : MAY

PNG image-A29373797B32-1

I'm really happy to be sharing Chapter Five of my Twenty22 Family Yearbook with you this Sunday evening! Photos and stories from May are documented in three spreads with a title page and an end page for my "film adaptation" video QR code.

The pages were created on my iPad Pro using the following products and mobile apps:

Before I go into my May pages, I wanted to remind everyone about two things. First, there are only a few hours left to purchase the Summertime Journal Block Party Kits. I brought them out of the vault for this weekend only. They will go back into the vault this evening at 10pm EST. Here is a link to see the kits in the shop!

Second, tomorrow, June 6, is the last day to register for my new class Type Talk! Registration will close tomorrow night and class begins this Friday, June 10. More information about Type Talk can be found here.

On to May Pages:

Title Page:

Titlepage

Title page was created by using the Design W template in the Project Life app. One of the title cards from the Chapters May Kit kit was placed in the center placeholder. Other placeholders were filled with the white card found in the Neutral Kit in the app. Shadows were turned off on this page.

Spread One

May-Spread1

In the spread above you can see the 6x12 Calendar Card from the May Edition of the Chapters Collection. This is placed in the Big Shot A Template from the Project Life app and I will ALWAYS use this template on the left hand side of the first spread for each month. I created the Run for the Roses journal card in Affinity Photo for iPad using the red texture background from the May Edition of the Chapters Collection. Other products from my shop used on this spread include the 4x6 Pocket Frame No. 1 and No. 2 Kits, and the 3x4 Pocket Frame No. 1 Kit.

Spread Two

May-spread2

I love the bright color palette of the May Edition of Chapters! The journal cards on the left side of the spread are ones that aren't intended for the size placeholders you see them in! The 3x4 journal card at the top is really a 6x8 journal card. The "This May Moment" journal card at the bottom is a 4x3. I just moved it within the placeholder so you can only see the left part of the card. I am so glad I created 4x4 cards specifically for QR Codes linking to a variety of video I've been taking. Adding video to my album this year has been so much fun. Once I placed the QR Code on that 4x4 filler card, I exported it to my camera roll and then placed it in one of the Pocket Frames from the 3x4 Pocket Frame No. 1 Kit. 

The 3x4 journal card on the right side of the spread is actually a 4x6 card from this month's kit. The 4x6 card doesn't exactly match the aspect ration of a 3x4, but I am still able to pull it off!

The "Surprise" label on the top photo was created using two free form text boxes in the Project Life App.

Spread Three

May-Spread3

I can't even be to tell you how happy I am with the left side of this spread. It's my absolute favorite from this month. I am a HUGE Dave Matthews fan. Earlier in the year while checking his 2022 tour schedule, I noticed he didn't have a show scheduled for Tampa. The closest one was in Orlando. I didn't think to keep checking to see if he was adding more concerts. I only found out about the concert after a friend posted she was looking forward to the concert the following week! OMG! I can't believe I almost missed this! I ended up getting tickets for 8 under the pavilion (this girl isn't sitting in the lawn anymore). SO MUCH FUN!!! My throat hurt for days from all the screaming! Such a great show!

The photo with DMB on it is a picture I took and added text to in Affinity Photo for iPad. Love the way it turned out. Our friend Tom took the pic of all of us in our seats. I took a screenshot of the setlist from DMBs website to remember all the songs that were played!

A pocket frame from the 4x6 Pocket Frame No. 3 Kit was used to add three more photos and text. I love these frames!!!!

The three other photos I included were pulled from the Dave Matthews Band Facebook page (I did give photo cred!). He has an amazing photographer that travels with him to each show and he posts photos each night after the concert. I especially love the one where he is writing out the setlist! Yes, they are low resolution–suitable for an 8x8 print, though. I print my albums at 10x10, so I'm not that concerned if they are a little grainy.

The 4x6 journal card on the right side of the spread is one I made in the Project Life app using the Terrazzo pattern digital paper from the May Kit!

Feel free to scan the QR Code above. It's just a 45-second clip of daily video I took using the 1 Second Everyday App. I may have missed one or two days in May, but I'm not going to stress about it! I love experimenting with video! These are so much fun to go back and watch!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post! Feel free to leave any comments or questions you may have below! The June Edition of Chapters will be released on May 14th!

 


TWENTY22 FAMILY YEARBOOK: CHAPTER FOUR

8CBAEE81-EF55-48FE-BC32-F6BEFC8D372B

I cannot believe it is already May. People are always saying "The older you get, the faster time flies," and that is soooo true!!! I sometimes wish the calendar months had a "pause button" so we can slow down and savor the moments. But I guess that is why we scrapbook right? Today I am sharing Chapter Four of my Twenty22 Family Yearbook!

Photos and stories from April are documented in four spreads with a title page and an end page for my "film adaptation" video QR code.

The pages were created on my iPad Pro using the following products and mobile apps:

Before we get into my April pages, I wanted to let you know about some things happening here for {inter}National Scrapbook Day this weekend! Pixels to Pages will be participating in a iNSD Blog Hop with a bunch of other indie digital scrapbook designers! I'm super excited about it! So keep an eye out on my Instagram and Facebook pages on Friday!!! All of the designers participating will have a fun freebie on their blogs for you to download. And, if you were thinking about purchasing anything from the shop or enrolling in a class, wait until the weekend! I will have a few discount codes for you to take advantage of!!!

Okay-keep scrolling and reading to see how Chapter four came together:

Title Page

Title

Title page was created by using the Design W template in the Project Life app. One of the title cards from the Chapters of April kit was placed in the center placeholder. Other placeholders were filled with the white card found in the Neutral Kit in the app. Shadows were turned off on this page.

Spread One

IMG_9274

In the spread above you can see the 6x12 Calendar Card from the April Edition of the Chapters Collection. This is placed in the Big Shot A Template from the Project Life app and I will ALWAYS use this template on the left hand side of the first spread for each month. The filler and journal cards are all from the April Edition of the Chapters Collection as well. The Kentucky Derby graphic is part of the invitation I created for our party. I placed it in one of the Pocket Frames from the 4x6 Pocket Frames No. 1 kit.

Spread Two

IMG_9275

Check out my garden tower! I just love watching it come to life! It fills out more and more everyday! The filler cards and the journal cards with the droplets on them are from this month's kit. I made the two journal cards with the pink border right in the Project Life App using the dark pink textured paper from the April Chapters kit. If you haven't seen it yet, I do have a tutorial on how you can make your own cards in the Project Life app and will share it at the end of this post!

Spread Three

IMG_9278

All journal/title cards were made in the Project Life App using the White Weathered Wood patterned paper from this month's kit! I am loving the photos from our Easter morning walk. I have this thing for driftwood. Although the photos aren't of actual driftwood, the roots and dead tree reminded me of it. I just love the texture and color!

Spread Four

IMG_9280

Weekend with the girls is always so much fun, aren't they? I love the way this spread turned out! Those Pocket Frames really come in handy! They help to add extra photos and journaling on your pages! The journal card with the orange border at the bottom was made in the Project Life App. The "friends" filler card was created in the Affinity Photo for iPad app. Typography is a passion of mine and I love finding ways to use it in my pages. I have a new class, Type Talk, coming to the Pixels to Pages Classroom in June! Next week I will be sharing more information about it and how you can register!!!

For the most part I am happy with the way my spreads turned out for April. The one thing that bothers me, however, is that I don't have that "line" that connects the right side and the left side of the pages together. I talk about this a lot in my Memories Matter Class and Memories Matter Project Life Design Series Courses! But I am not too concerned about it because I try to have a repeating pattern or color from my journal/filler cards on each side of the spread to connect the pages together!

Feel free to scan the QR Code. It's just a 45-second clip of daily video I took using the 1 Second Everyday App. I may have missed one or two days in April, but I'm not going to stress about it! I love experimenting with video!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post! Feel free to leave any comments or questions you may have below! The May Edition of Chapters will be released around May 15th!

I have share the tutorials below in the past, but if you are new here and looking for instruction on how to create your own journal cards in the Project Life App check out the video below! I am also including the video on how to use the Pocket Frames in the Affinity Photo for iPad App as well!

Chapter Three in our 2022 Family Yearbook is complete and I couldn't be happier! When I created the March Edition of my Chapters Collection, I had no idea the colors and textures would work so well with the photos I would be taking this month! I'm just thrilled with these pages!

March is covered in 7 spreads, with a title page and an end page for my "film adaptation" video QR code. 

Pages we’re created using the following products/apps:

Let's see how Chapter Three of 2022 came together!

March2022-Title

Title page was created by using the Design W template in the Project Life app. One of the title cards from the Chapters of March kit was placed in the center placeholder. Other placeholders were filled with the white card found in the Neutral Kit in the app. Shadows were turned off on this page.

Spread One

March2022-Spread1

In the spread above you can see the 6x12 Calendar Card from the March Edition of the Chapters Collection. This is placed in the Big Shot A Template from the Project Life app and I will ALWAYS use this template on the left hand side of the first spread for each month. The two journal cards with the rust texture and yellow line were created in the Small Prints section of the Project Life App. A few months back, I did create a video of how you can create your own journal cards in the app. I will share that video at the end of this blog post. The "Advance to Venmo" card was created in the Creative Cloud Express App (formerly known as Adobe Spark Post).

Spread Two

March2022-Spread2

I am loving that rust texture from this month's edition of Chapters! I made the two journal cards you see on this spread in the Project Life App. The filler card with the quote from Anthony Bourdain was created in the Affinity Photo for iPad App, using the colored texture digital paper from this month's kit. The fonts are those I am using throughout the Chapters collection. I have them loaded into Affinity Photo and the Project Life App so I can use them in whatever app I am in. I also created color swatches from the March kit using the RGB color codes from the Chapter Summary PDF that is included in each monthly Chapters Collection! Everything is matchy-matchy!

Spread Three

March2022-Spread3

I got a lot of journaling going on throughout these pages! Notice how I carried journaling from one 4x6 card to the other on the left hand page. That top card is one included in the March Chapters kit. The journal card below that is one I created in the app using the yellow texture from this month's kit. Read the story. It's worth it.

The page on the right. This one got me excited! Why? Well first, I don't think I've ever used Big Shot 10 in my albums before. If I have it was a very long time ago. And second, this template gave me the chance to experiment with a new Pocket Frame size that will be released in my shop soon–6x12 Pocket Frames!!! This one hold 3 photos. What do you think? I LOVE IT!!! I do use a template from the 3x4 Pocket Frame No.1 Kit on this page. I will also share another link to a tutorial on how to use the Pocket Frames in the Affinity Photo App at the end of this blog post. It demos the 4x6 Pocket Frames, but you'd use the 3x4 in the same manner! The journal card you see on this page is one I created in the Project Life App.

Spread Four

Ok before you read any further, I gotta put a little disclaimer on some of the photos in this spread, as some readers may be offended by them. They are not gory or anything like that. They are photos of signs and some may take offense to the subject matter. I'm not apologizing for them at all. It's my album, I'll include what I want! ;). You've been warned.

March2022-Spread4

Cafe du Monde. Just so yummy. I still can't decide if I liked the beignets better at Cafe du Monde or those from Cafe Beignet. Any readers out there who have been to NOLA have a preference?  I made the "Beignet there, done that" filler card in Affinity Photo and the journal card on the left was done in the Project Life App. 

So the page on the right makes really good use of the 3x4 Pocket Frame No. 1 Kit and the 4x6 Pocket Frame No. 2 Kit. I am really addicted to using these things! I love that I am able to have a photo on the card with enough white space to add text. The NOLA filler card is one I created right there in the layout using the green texture "paper" from the March Chapters Kit and the Free Form Text option in the Project Life App. I really like the way that looks!

Spread 5

March2022-Spread5

I think one of my favorite moments on this trip was stumbling upon Fritzel's European Jazz Pub and listening to Richard "Piano" Scott play. This guy was AMAZING!!! He sounded just like Louie Armstrong!!! Truly talented! The journal cards were created in the Project Life App, but check out what I did with one of the 4x4 QR code cards that are included in the March Chapters Kit:

I recorded bits and pieces of several songs Richard Scott played and combined them into about a 4-minute long video using iMovie on my iPad. I then uploaded it to Vimeo and used the link to create a QR Code. Once I dropped the QR Code into the "watch this" card, I placed that card in one of the 3x4 Pocket Frame files! How fun is that? I'm loving that I am including video in our Family Yearbook this year!

Spread 6

March2022-Spread6

Last spread for our NOLA trip. Check it out! Do you see what I see? Could those be 6x8 Pocket Frames? I thought the Big Shot 23 template in the Project Life app would be a good one to test out a 6x8 Pocket Frame. It passed my test, so you will soon be seeing those in the shop as well! I also used a 4x6 Pocket Frame template and a 4x6 Pocket Frame Border on this page, both are from the 4x6 Pocket Frame No. Kit.

To close out our trip I used an editorial template on the right!

Spread 7

March2022-Spread7

I think the colors from the March Chapters Kit compliment the photos perfectly! All three journal cards were created in the Project Life App using the textured "paper" from the March Chapters Kit. 

Any paddle boarders out there? I am looking sooooo forward to a paddling this year! I'm sure I'll be taking lots of photos of our paddling adventures!

And finally my final page for Chapter Three:

March2022-QR

Feel free to scan the QR Code. It's just a 45-second clip of daily video I took using the 1 Second Everyday App. I actually missed two days this month, but still having so much fun with it!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post! Feel free to leave any comments or questions you may have below! The April Edition of Chapters will be released around April 15th!

Okay for those of you who like tutorials. Grab your favorite beverage and watch these if you haven't done so already!

 



 

 


TWENTY22 FAMILY YEARBOOK: CHAPTER ONE (+video tutorial)

AEF164E7-A6FB-4E50-A7B1-5FD0F0AB9572

Today I am excited to share the January pages from my 2022 family yearbook. Chapter 1 consists of a title page, three double-page spreads, and an end page with a QR code for the January video I created in the One Second Everyday App

Pages we’re created using the following products/apps:

Title

Title page was Created by using the Design W template in the Project Life app. One of the title cards from the Chapters of January kit was placed in the center placeholder. Other placeholders were filled with the white card found in the Neutral Kit in the app. Shadows were turned off on this page.

IMG_8709

The first spread of each chapter will always have the Calendar card from the January Chapters Kit on the left-hand side just as you see in this photo. I listed a few of the chapter highlights in the journal space below the calendar. The 3x4 filler card on the left-hand side is actually 4x6 in size but it fit very nicely in this place holder. On the right-hand side of the spread the 3 x 4 journal card you see with the January title is from my 2022 Monthly Calendar Journal Blocks and Cards Kit. 

IMG_8710

The second double-page spread uses the 4x3 journal card from the Chapters January Kit. I placed it in 3x4 placeholders, then using the photo editing tool, I rotated it to a vertical orientation. The two journal cards you see with the purple border are ones I created directly in the Project Life app! At the end of this post you’ll find a link to a 20-minute video tutorial demonstrating how you can set up your own journal card templates in the app using digital papers you have purchased from outside sources! The 4x6 photo with the two dogs was created in Creative Cloud Express (formerly Adobe Spark Post). It’s a template I created in the app a long time ago. I use it over and over again and just switch out the photos. Once it was exported, I dropped it into the 4x6 placeholder on my PL template, then I used several text boxes to add the journaling and the word art title on the photo!

IMG_8711

I couldn’t be happier with the way the third spread turned out. On the left I used Editorial Template Set 1A No. 1. On the left I used the Big Shot 20 template. I’m not one to use a lot of purple in my albums, but man! I seemed to have been drawn to that color from the kit this month!  All of the filler cards were created directly within the placeholders on the page using several text boxes. I just love this spread!

Endpage

And finally the last page simply has the 4x4 card meant for a QR Code. Scan the code with the phone on your mobile device and you can view the short movie created with the One Second Everyday App! I used the Affinity Photo app to place the QR Code on the card, exported it to my camera roll, then added the card to the center placeholder in the Design Q template, with the shadows turned off. I originally had thought I was going use the bokeh pattern paper in the placeholders on either side of the card, but I changed my mind. I love all the white space. In my album, this will be placed opposite of my February Title page.

January is done! Looking forward to February keep these dates in mind when taking pictures throughout the month. The graphic below shows the National Days that will be represented in the Chapters February kit! You can expect that kit to be released sometime during the week of February 14.

Hello, 2022

Twenty22B

I know, I know! It's the end of January and I'm just getting around to welcoming you into 2022! Actually, it's been quite some time since I wrote a blog post. 2021 was extremely busy here at Pixels to Pages with a new classroom and the Project 12/52 Collection kits Meagan Johnson (The Practical Scrapper) and I released throughout the year. Posting on the blog fell under the radar. I was posting more on my Facebook and Instagram platforms. I've had many followers asking if I was going to start blogging again. So you know how it goes, new year, new goals!

My documenting plans for 2022:

Even though my 2021 family yearbook has yet to be completed, I already know I will be documenting 2022 in a monthly format. I seemed to go back and forth every year. 2021 was weekly, 2022 is monthly. And to help me get those photos + stories documented, I have several new kits in the Pixels to Pages shop that I will be using this year! Let's take an in-depth look at them!

Chapters: A Month-by-Month Storytelling Card Collection:

+P2P-2022-Chapters-January-Preview

 


 

A lot of thought has gone into this kit and each part of it deserves some explaining. So here goes:

IMG_8666

 

Each month will feature a new color palette, texture, and realistic pattern!

 


 

IMG_8665

I know how many of you mobile memory keepers and digital scrappers love to coordinate fonts to kits you purchase online, so here are the fonts I am using in the Chapters Collection. These fonts will remain the same each month for consistency!

 


 

IMG_8658

Each month will include 6x12 and 3x4 Calendar Cards with both Sunday and Monday start dates. The design of the cards each month will remain the same, but the colors will change according the monthly color palette. Note that the journaling section on the 6x12 cards is titled "Chapter Highlights." You'll read why I am pointing this out further down the post!

 


 

IMG_8659

Kits will include two 4x6 Chapter Title Card options. I couldn't decide which design I liked best, so I am including both. You'll see how I am using this card to divide my album up into sections later in the post! The design will remain the same each month, but the color will change.

 


 

IMG_8662

If you have been following me for a while or purchased kits in my shop in the past, you may recall I had a collection of Journal Block kits. They were very popular (though no longer available) and I really wanted to include a few in the Chapters Collection. Each month there will be a 6x8 and 8x6 Journal Block card. The design and colors will change according to the color palette.

 


 

IMG_8661

Back in December I was a guest on the Simple Scrapper (Jennifer Wilson) Podcast "Scrapbook Your Way." If you caught that episode, you may recall that one of my goals this year is to play around with video more and incorporate it into my albums. You can listen to that podcast here: https://www.simplescrapper.com/syw148 Throughout December I was using the One Second Everyday app and I absolutely loved it. I exported my little video to Vimeo, created a QR Code and dropped that into the last page of my December Daily Album. I am planning on doing the same every month in 2022. I created two 4x4 cards in this kit for you to do the same if you'd like.

When a book is turned into a film, it is called a "film adaptation." I thought it would be really fun to incorporate that term into the main card. "Episode One" represents January, the first chapter of my book. Cute, right? The other card is a little more generic. So if you have a video of a vacation, birthday parties, etc. You can use the "watch this" card and add a title to that rectangle at the top! By the way, you will need to use an app like Affinity Photo to add text and your QR Code to these cards. 

 


 

IMG_8660

I wanted to include a more sophisticated birthday card in this collection. Each kit will feature a 3x4 zodiac card. This color and design will remain the same throughout the monthly kits. Only the symbol/name will change. I did this for two reasons. 1) I know zodiac signs overlap each month. So for instance, if you have family members whose birthdays fall toward the second half of December and the first half of January, you can use this card in both months without having to worry if it will clash with that month's color palette. 2) This card will coordinate with the 3 other kits that were released in the shop this month (you'll see those further down the post).

 


 

IMG_8667

Each monthly there will be cards in the kit that represent various National Days, but not necessarily say "National Day." For instance, January 6 was "National Cuddle Up Day," and January 31 is "National Hot Chocolate Day." You can think of these more as photo prompts! I know I am a little late to the game in January, but beginning with February, I will be posting on my Facebook page and Instagram accounts as to which national days will be represented so you can plan a few photos! As far as a photo for National Cuddle Up Day which as already passed, take a photo anyways! No one is going to know that you took it at the end of the month!!!

 


 

IMG_8663

The monthly kit will also contain a few other coordinating 3x4 and 4x6 filler and journal cards. Be watching the blog next week where I will be posting a video on how you can create more journal coordinating cards using this kit in the Project Life App!

 


 

Untitled Copy

And finally, each kit will come with a 5-page PDF explaining the various cards in the the collection, a list of the National Days, etc. I know it is important for many mobile memory keepers and digital scrappers to match the colors of the kits when working in apps/software like Affinity Photo or Photoshop, so I am including the color codes for each monthly color palette, too! I hope you find this helpful!

 


 

2022 Monthly Calendar Journal Blocks and Cards:

Journalcards

 

Also released in the shop are the 2022 Monthly Calendar Journal Blocks + Cards. These are available in either a Monday or Sunday start date, so be sure your are purchasing the correct one! These cards do coordinate with the Chapters Collection! The one thing that is different is the title for the journaling section on the 6x12 Calendar Cards is "Month in Review" instead of  "Chapter Highlights."

 


 

2022 Weekly Cards:

IMG_8676

The cards in this kit also coordinate with the Chapters and the 2022 Monthly Calendar Journal Blocks + Cards kits. 3x4 + 4x6 cards in vertical and horizontal orientation and their overlays are included. Just so you know weekly dates are NOT on the cards. I know, I know. Many would love to have these dates on the cards. But there are way too many variables to consider when adding them: should the week start on a monday or a sunday? And looking at a December calendar, where does one end their week 52/53 and begin their week 1? There is too much to think about, so I just leave them off. This also gives you the freedom to use the cards in different years, not just in 2022. If you are going to add the dates and want to be all matchy-matchy, I would suggest the font Barlow Condensed if you have access to it!

 


 

Some page samples:

IMG_8646

This is my title page for January. I used Design W in the Project Life App. I placed the January card in the center 6x4 pocket and filled the remaining pockets with the white card from the Neutral Card Kit in the app. Drop shadows are turned off.

 

Jan 1

Here is my first spread in January (other spreads are still in progress. I used cards from the January Chapters Kit and the 2022 Month Calendar Journal Block kits. Drop shadows are turned back on

 

Janfeb

This is what the last page of January and the first page of February will look like. They will appear side-by-side in my album like this. I still will play around with the left side a bit. Especially if I add more video. The QR Code there is my movie from December. It is there just for sample purposes and will be changed out when January is done! Right now I have the drop shadows turned off. Not sure if I will keep them that way on this page. 

 


 

So that is it! What do you think? If you are ready to document your January photos + stories, and looking to purchase any of the above kits, click this link or the shop link above in the menu!


2021 Brain Dump + A 2021 Gift for You

P1252-NewYearFreebie-4x6-01

Happy New Year, friends! I pray everyone has welcomed 2021 with open arms and slammed the door on 2020! To be honest, I really wasn't ready for the holidays to end. It was cooler than normal in December for us here in Florida. I couldn't get enough of cozy nights by the lighted tree, Christmas-scented candles, and wearing a puffy jacket in the mornings when walking Zoe. But it was time to turn the final page on 2020 and begin to move forward. I am taking a little break from removing holiday decorations to write my first post of 2021. Over the weekend, I did a Facebook and Instagram Live, where I spoke about variety of things–my background in documenting, my collaboration of a digital kit with The Practical Scrapper, my plans for documenting 2021, and a few exciting things I want to do with Pixels to Pages this year. I want to repeat some of that here in this post, and even mention a few other things that I forgot to in those social media videos.

If this is your first time visiting Pixels to Pages, welcome. I am so happy you are here. Really I am. I'm not going to go into a deep introduction of myself here, but to learn a little bit more about me just click on the "About" link in the navigation bar above and you can get to know me in a nutshell! Please be sure to follow me on Instagram accounts–@pixelstopages is where I share all things documenting! My @kmsill account is where I share more personal and family things! I'd love to connect with you there!

So now on to my 2021 Brain Dump. The past several days I have had so many ideas of what I want to do in 2021 that it is causing me to lose sleep. From documenting projects, to home improvement projects, and business plans. There is a lot swirling around in this girl's 52-year-old brain. And even though I discussed some of them in the Live social media videos, I just need to do a little more to get them out of my head. Writing them down helps, so that is what I am doing here.

My 2021 Word: Self

While I am not participating in the One Little Word project by Ali Edwards, I do have a word that will be my focus in 2021–it's "self." This particular word started to show itself to me in the last few months of 2020–self-taught, self-starter, self-employed, self-care, self-assured, be true to yourself, self-discovery. I could go on and on. I just feel like this word is talking to me and I look forward how it makes its appearance throughout 2021. What about you? Do you have a word for 2021?

Family Yearbook (Project Life)

2021 will mark the 6th year I am creating my yearbook in the Project Life App. That is not to say I am completely caught up on my 2020 album. Come to think of it, I still have a few more months to go in 2017 (I was working on both years at the same time. 2018 and 2019 are done though!).  In 2020 I documented in a monthly format. I am almost done with September and hope to share that soon. I seem to go back and forth–one year I document in a monthly format, and the following year I do a weekly format. For 2021, I am going back to a weekly format. 

I will be using the Project 12/52 Foundation Kit throughout the year. This is the kit The Practical Scrapper, Meagan Johnson, and I collaborated on. I'll talk a little bit more about that kit at the end of this post (and there is a freebie there for you!). Something new I want to incorporate into my album this year are the weekly story prompts that Becky Higgins publishes on her My Modern Story Instagram account, using the Editorial Templates in the Project Life App. I absolutely love the concept of these story prompts and look forward to including them in my album somehow. I enrolled in her My Modern Story class when she first released it several months ago and just went through the course this morning (January 3). Wow. So much inspiration! I don't care how seasoned of a scrapper you are, or how comfortable you are with the Project Life App, you will always find little nuggets of knowledge in Becky's classes that you can take away with you and work into your own documenting process. Seriously good stuff in there! And you guys, the class is free! Here is a link to the classroom for you to enroll. No affiliation whatsoever. I just like to share!

Live the Story You Want to Tell

"Live the Story You Want to Tell" is an audio course by Becky Higgins and her podcast partner, Becky Proudfit. This class was gifted to me a while back, but is no longer available to enroll in. I have been holding out for 2021 to begin the class and I'm super excited to dive in. The reason I am bringing this up now is that upon finishing the My Modern Story mini course, Becky really inspired me to dive even deeper in telling MY story. Sure in my family yearbooks I document about good times, bad times, etc. But I just want to write something a little more personal. Maybe I will share those pages here and on social media, maybe I won't. But I know I feel compelled to write more about myself (see, there is my 2021 word). I look forward to beginning this audio course and taking a journey into self-discovery and documenting it using the Editorial Templates. I've already decided that I will be doing 10x10 pages, printing them through the app and using the Greige binder she sells in her shop. Again, I am not sure how much of this will will share on social media, we'll see!

Pixels to Pages Classroom

If you are a memory keeper who used to scrapbook using physical product (papers, stickers, etc), you are very familiar with ever-changing product lines, trends, and techniques. You may find the same holds true when you are a mobile memory keeper–new apps are released, tried and true apps are updated, new digital techniques are discovered. Many of you may remember that I used to teach a series of online classes at Scrapaneers.com called Art of the Apps. They were a big success and I had so much fun teaching others how to use document their photos and stories using a variety of apps on their mobile devices. I haven't taught an online class in several years and man, do I miss it. I've been wanting to host my own classes in my own classroom for a while now, and I am determined that this will happen in the first half of 2021. I'm not going to give any other details other that what I am writing here or what I said in my Facebook/IG Lives a few days ago. But I will keep you posted as I get closer to opening the classroom for enrollment! Stay tuned!

Social Media

While I do publish posts and photos on Facebook and Instagram, one of the things I want to become more comfortable with in 2021 are Facebook and Instagram Lives. I want to connect more with all of my Pixels to Pages friends and have you get to better know the person behind the logo. I did my first Instagram Live this past weekend. I think it went pretty good–although I think I messed something up when I tried to end the Live. But it's a learning process, so bare with me as I move forward with this! For Christmas my oldest son and daughter-in-law gave me this really cool phone and tablet stand to record video and/or live stream. I plan on putting it to good use this year!!!

2021: The Year of DIY

Do-It-Yourself. Again my word for 2021. This will be the year of DIY for me. From simple home decor, to building a custom cabinet in our family room, I've got this need to create like you wouldn't believe. Ryley, our youngest son, gave me a sewing machine for Christmas. I am so excited! I haven't sewn in years and I can't wait to make all. the. things. And I am planning on sharing what I create here on the blog. So I hope you all don't mind a sprinkling of other creative endeavors here along side of my scrapbook pages! Joann's, Michael's, Home Depot, and Lowe's are going to be my new favorite places to shop!

Project 12/52

+P2P-P1252-MAINKIT-PREV

I mentioned earlier in this post the Project 12/52 Collection that Meagan Johnson and I collaborated on. Meagan is so talented! Make sure you are following her on her Instagram–@thepracticalscrapper. I am so, so, so very grateful for her helping me get this kit out of my head and into our shops! The idea for this kit has been in my head for 2 years and it is so freeing to have it out there! It really allows me to move forward with other things! But I want to explain in a little more detail about the Collection and what you can expect from it throughout the year:

Project 12/52 Foundation Kit: This is the main kit in the Collection. It is full of over 600 cards for you to use in the Project Life App. To use them within the Project Life App, simply save your cards to DropBox or other cloud storage (I keep mine in iCloud Drive) and then you place them on your Project Life App page just as you would a photo. Feel free to use the cards in other apps, too! Or, if you are a digital scrapper (creating pages on your desktop or laptop), these cards can be used in Photoshop, Photoshop Elements,  and Affinity Photo.

Project 12/52 Add-on Kits:

Meagan and I know that not every app-scrapper are die-hard users of the Project Life App. There are many apps mobile memory keepers use to document their stories and photos. This is the main reason why we decided to offer the Digital Papers and Overlays in separate kits. We didn't want the Foundation Kit to have products in it that those who use scrap strictly with the PL App wouldn't use. Make sense? Right now there are 3 add-on kits in the Collection:

Digital Papers: 25 patterns and 12 solids. Use them in your desktop software or in mobile apps such as Affinity Photo, Over, or Letterglow.

Monthly Overlays: This kit has 3x4 and 4x6 overlays in black and white. They come in both horizontal and vertical orientation.

Weekly Overlays: Same as the Monthly overlays! The kit contains the overlays in 3x4 and 4x6 sizes. They come in black and white, and in both horizontal and vertical orientation.

The Project 12/52 Collection is available in both of our shops (you can get to mine by clicking the link at the top of the page). It doesn't matter which shop you purchase from! And guys, Meagan's shop is great! She has a ton of  kits not related to the Project 12/52 Collection that you may be interested in! Click this link to go to her shop!

We know that sticking with one kit throughout the year can get a little boring. So Meagan and I will be releasing seasonal add-on kits throughout the year! Yay! There may be a few other surprise kits added as well!  And here is the first one–a mini Happy New Year Kit. Thank you to all those who have purchased the kit so far! We appreciate you! For those who haven't decided on a kit to use for their 2021 album, we hope you will consider Project 12/52 and use the cards below to help you get started!
