Hey all! I hate that I haven't been blogging. I miss it. Another thing that I've been missing? Scrapbooking. In the last 5 months, I have only created 4 layouts and 3 pocket page spreads. That's it, layout wise. And one of those layouts and one of those pocket page spreads I am unable to share in full. There's plenty of other projects that I've been working on, and I should really get each of them to the point where I can share what I've been doing. Instead of waiting to have the project fully finished.
I mentioned in THIS POST, at the start of the year, that I was debating whether I want to do my Project Life albums this year with physical products - or digitally, with the Project Life app. I'm still debating if I'm being honest. I already had all of my January photos printed, just in case I want to do physical albums. I also dumped all of my January photos onto my iPad, just in case I want to use the Project Life app. Decisions, decisions.
I have been playing with the app, creating a few pages here and there. Not necessarily pages for my Project Life album. More like digital layouts. I had quite a few soccer photos from January, so I thought why not toss together a quick page.
There are things that I love about using the app to get pages done. It's incredibly easy. I can do it wherever, whenever. The fact that I can do it while sitting on the couch, watching my shows - that's awesome to me. It's simpler. There's no printing photos, digging out supplies, die cutting titles (because that's what I love to do), fussing around with pieces, printing journaling, photographing the layout, etc, etc.
Yet I do miss playing with paper, die cutting fun titles, digging thru my supplies and picking out the perfect pieces to match my photos. I just miss getting in my room and getting creative. The hard part is that I just don't seem to find the time to do that as much as I used too. Or when I do have time, I'm too tired to go in there. Also, there's no TV in there, and that certainly doesn't help ;)
I'm just rambling. But at least I have a layout to share, right? I also promise to be back Monday, with a recap of my time at CHA two weeks ago. And I'm going to do my best to get one of my album projects ready to share later next week. If I wait till they're totally done, they'll never get shared. Lol.
