Project 52: Example Layouts

And now we’re wrapping up Week 03, and I figured now would be a good time to show off some layouts that have been shared. I love how creative everyone is getting, and how each person is taking the challenge so personally, and making it working for them.


Created by Sarah. Yes, that would be me. I’m going more for the Project Life theme, and scrapping some of my favorite pictures. This is just one side. I take a lot of selfies, and since that’s just about the only way we get pictures of me, I figured I should scrap them. Sometimes I need photographic proof that I actually put on some make-up.

Project 52: Apps!

Okay, last week, we talked about inspiration. Today, I’m going over APPS!

Apps are a bit of a personal choice. The ones I use are more photography based, and the ones someone else uses might be more for journaling! It’s always personal.

As I mentioned last week, I’m more of an Android girl and know nothing about IOS, but here are some IOS apps suggested by another user:

Journaling
Momento- My very favorite app. I use it every day
Evernote
Photo editing/ filters/ social
Instagram
VSCO cam
PicTapGo
Adding text to photos
Collect
A Beautiful Mess
Word Swag
Scrapping/ photo collage
Project Life App
Shake
Diptic
PicFrame

Project 52: Inspiration

Hello and welcome to a new blogging series! I’ve noticed in the forum that so many scrappers want to do a version of Project 52, whether it involves daily photographs, a weekly theme, or picking one big moment of the year!

At Gingerscraps, you’re able to earn up to 4 (FOUR!) challenge points a month (full explanation available here in the Gingerscraps forum). If you have any questions relating to that, please ask there. Thank you!

This series, which will be posted each Wednesday, will focus on different aspects of the challenge. Today, for example, will be focus on some inspiration!

Here is what our creative team did for us!

Let’s keep it going with our Guest Designer!

ROSEYTOES DESIGNS!

 

Ive known Ryan for a while and she is such a great person!  I can’t wait for you all to get to know her better!  Here is what she had to say about herself!

 Hello everyone! My name is Ryan, I’m 26 years old, I have a 5 year old ‘big boy’ (according to him) named Gavin, and a boyfriend, whom I might as well be married to, since we’ve ben together for 6 years now, this last December.. 

I am currently in school, getting my AA in liberal studies, to become an elementary school teacher, as well as an AA in social sciences.. I als work part time at a local grocery store in the deli dept, and let me just say, I make a pretty grubbin’ sandwich! lol
I love spending time with my family, going to family events and also taking pictures! Over the summer I bought myself an early birthday present, and well probably christmas too for the next few years! a nikon D5100, that I am absolutely obsessed with! It’s a rarity to see me without a camera with me now, I just love being able to capture memories of my neices and nephews whenever I can..
As for Roseytoes Designs, I actually started scrapping in 2007 after my son was born because I didn’t really have the time to sit down and devote time to paper scrapping anymore.. In 2010 I was encouraged to give designing a try and I got hooked, and bad! lol the first mini kit I ever did looked horrible, lol, since I didn’t really know what I was doing, and took me literally all night to complete! looking back, I wouldn’t have it any other way, I love creating scrapbook kits And now, templaes as well and I’m trying new things to be able to branch out and not be so limited on my designs.

 Here are just a few of her goodies!  Her store has TONS more so make sure you look!
