It’s Wednesday and you know what that means – more Project Life App pages! I love this day of the week, mostly because I love sharing this work. If you’re just tuning into this series, check the intro above for links to previous months.

Friends, this gets more fun every month. Honestly, each time I think I’ve seen the BEST products or made my BEST layouts, it happens again. And it’s an awesome feeling.

Project Life App Pages – April

This month started off with Easter and a fun family gathering with my extended family. And while I didn’t capture the entire family in the blown up photo on the right hand page (me included), I still have the essence of the day in this two-page layout.

Project Life App Tip | If you have a picture that is a large, landscape photograph with small details, place it in to side-by-side cells and zoom in so that it looks like one large photo.

First Week of April | Made with the Cathy Zielske Value Kit and Becky’s Good Life Quotes in the Project Life App

Friends, I just LOVE this kit. Honestly, I’m really surprised at how quickly it was released from physical to digital to app. And I couldn’t be happier. Cathy Zielske is the queen of simple. And we all know that I’m a minimalist memory keeper at heart. πŸ˜‰

Second Week of April | Made with the Floral Themed Cards in the Project Life App

The colors on this Floral mini kit are awesome. Incorporating boys into these layouts? That was a challenge. There is a growing part of me that wants to create some form of the Me: Abridged Version album every year, just so I have a place to create and keep all of the girly kits I love so much.

Third Week of April | Made with the Coral Edition and Cathy Zielske Value Kit in the Project Life App

This week I had some fun with documenting life. With My Selfie Scrapbook in full swing, it seemed only right to incorporate glimpses of the amazing-ness of the photographs from that album into my Project Life layouts. But the project was more than that: it also inspired me to consider documenting our lives in a different way.

Project Life App Tip | If you can’t get a picture of yourself – or your wild toddler – with their favorite shirt on, take a picture of just the shirt on a neutral background. Ideally, before it’s covered in food and dirt. πŸ˜‰

Third Week of April | Made with the Cathy Zielske Value Kit in the Project Life App

Lately I’ve been working with my spreads in half-layouts. Basically, rather than thinking about them as 12×12 squares, I think of them as two-6×12 layouts. It’s amazing how much easier it is to coordinate when you’re thinking about a smaller scale. And as long as you add in white space (and coordinate it with the bordering page), it can come out looking pretty fancy. You can see that clearly on the right had side of this layout.

Project Life App Tip | When you’re working with a 12×12 and it feels a little overwhelming, think about it in smaller pieces – like a 6×12. Coordinate those pictures and those cards, then coordinate the other set. It’s okay if they don’t all match, as long as there is consistency in your blocks.

 

 

Well, friends, that marks the end of this week’s Project Life App spreads, For more on my Project Life albums, check out this category here on the blog, follow me on instagram, and come back here on Wednesdays to see all the kits I’ve used so far this year (hint: it’s different every month!).

 

xoxo,

Julie

    Julie,
    What program are you using to put your two page layouts together/side-by-side? Thanks! They look great!

      Thanks, Rae! I use the PhotoGrid App. It’s free. Use the “stitch” option and choose two square photos. Another option is to use PicMonkey (that’s a free web-based program) and collage the two together. πŸ™‚
