Catching Up With Project Life

The past two weeks had been crazy with my daughter's last quarterly exam and all. But thank God I am able to catch up with everything project life using the app. Life has been soooo easy with the app. Here are some of my layouts so far. Oh, if you're wondering where my first weeks were, they're in my SSD gallery. These are layouts I made so far using the PL app.

I just can't resist a cluster or two so...  :)

Project Life Android App

Hi!!! Yes I'm still alive (hehe). I haven't been very active on my blog lately, I'm still in the process of digesting all the things I'm doing, and one of them is Project Life. I know that all of you knew about the Project Life Android which launched in leap day (yiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!!) I was just sooooo excited and thankful to becky Higgins and company, for making an android version of project life. For years android users have been asking when it would release and now, my!!!!! I'm so hooked! I used to use the ios version but when i realized that it was hard for me to PL on my iPhone 4s because of the size of the screen, I opted out to doing it in photoshop, which I'm also enjoying. But being a full time mom, sometimes it's hard to wait for my photos to transfer to dropbox then scrap a two page spread. Or I'm just that lazy? Ehehehe. In photoshop, I was able to finish up to Week 3 of my project 52. But yesterday when I downloaded the app, I managed to finish two and a half weeks! So convenient since I use my phone 90% of the time to take photos. And I really, rally want to do pl this year even thogh I know that I will be behind. So here's what I do:

1. First, I saved the week numbers in my dropbox so i could use it when I make my layout in the app.

Please take note that the pages that I saved from the app only have the gray background, my blog theme happens to put a white layer on every photo I upload. But on the next photo at #2, there's an off white background under the gray background.

2. After I save the 12x12 printable version in the dropbox, I open the page on my desktop so I could edit in photoshop. I like to add a cluster or two and some button on my pages and also the journaling because I want the alignment to be justified.

P.S. The app will give you choices to save in 8x8 or 12x12 but if you check the page on your computer, it is just 2760 x 2760 in 72dpi which supposed to be 3600 x 3600. Anyway, I hope it will still print nicely.

Here's my finished layout. I just can't live without a cluster or two, for now. But I am okay with using cards only on each rectangles (my, what do you even call that?!). If you will compare this on my first weeks, these are really simpler and more neat no? And I like it.

Christmas Lights and New Releases

Brrrrrr!!!! So cold this week!! I seriously can't remove my jacket! And while I'm bearing the coldness, I wanted to ask about your preferred color of Christmas lights guys. For me I still love the yellow (or is that orange?) traditional color. When I was little it's what the color of our Christmas lights have always been. But I was really curious about the white ones that I see on some of my friends' houses that when I got married, I bought white lights for our first Christmas tree. But then I see that the feeling of the yellow colored lights are very far from how I feel about white ones that I decided this year to buy the traditional color - yellow. And I loved it very much! I think my daughter loved it too!

Aaaaand before I forget!! Here are some releases by Amanda Yi!

Review 2015: A solo by Amanda which you can buy in separate packs or this huge bundle

Snow Place Like Home by Amanda Yi

Hey there! How's Christmas preparation in your house so far? Do you participate in December Daily? I actually do but I haven't made any layouts yet, I have only collected photos for five days now. If I use my phone (which is what's actually happening, hehe), I automatically upload them to dropbox so I could transfer them on my desktop to my DecDaily folder. Yup, and hopefully I would be able to scrap them before January ends :)

Anyway, here is a re-release kit from Amanda Yi Designs. She collaborated with Juno Designs on this one:

 Snow Place Like Home

Or if you prefer the bundle to save $$$

And here's my layout. I used a Eudora Designs freebie template from a long time ago :)
