Twenty22 Family Yearbook: Chapter Four

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 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

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

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

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

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!

Final Page

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!

Thank you for taking the time to read! See you back here on Friday!
