There’s an App For That | A Beautiful Mess

I don’t know about you, but I wish I could scrap more often. I scrap at home, while the guys are watching something I have no desire to or while everyone is sleeping. I’ve thought more than once how I wish that I could scrap on the go. While I have not been able to find an app that lets me scrap from start to finish. I have found a few that cuts out some steps and I can do on the go. Not to mention they add special touches to my layouts. I am stopping by today to talk about one of those apps!

A Beautiful Mess

What is this app you ask? A Beautiful Mess is a photo editing app. It comes with 6 photo filters, quite a few fonts, great borders, word art, and doodles. You can make in-app purchases for more of everything (except the filters). The in-app purchases are $0.99 a piece.

When using A Beautiful Mess, it crops the photo to a square. Once you are done, it saves it to your photo library. It is available in iTunes and Google play. A lot of you will have known about and used this app. However, for those who do not, let me tell and show you how this can help your digital scrapping!

I took 4 photos that I had taken while my son and I were out having our, “Me & You Day”. I edited these in about 10 minutes or less.

So, as you can see I took photo photos and added to them. Little word art here, a tad of color there, and fun borders. Now, how does this help with scrapping? It might have only taken me 10 minutes or less to do this in Photoshop. I think with the searching and creating though, it would have taken a bit longer. Not to mention, I can do this while waiting for an appointment, or laying in bed being lazy! I didn’t have to lug out my laptop or go sit at my desktop. How easy would these be to put in a layout?

Fun, right?! Don’t limit yourself to your computer and remember, you don’t just have to pocket scrap with these kinds of photos. Explore your phone’s apps and see what you can come up with. If you find a really cool new app, let me know! I would love to check it out and might even use it in a future post.

Made a layout using a photo from A Beautiful Mess?! Remember to upload it in the gallery and come back and link us up! We love to see what you are scrapping!

Pinspiration | The Movies

GS_blog_BePinspired_Header

Happy Scrappy Saturday everyone!! Do you ever need a bit of inspiration to get those creative scrappy juices flowing? Let me tell you, I sure do! A lot of the times looking around the gallery helps. So does Pinterest. I was looking for a bit of inspiration and searched for “scrapbooking ideas“.

Scrolling down I found this really cool traditional layout with movie ticket stubs! How cool is that? I got to thinking how that could be taken and turned into a digital scrapbooking layout. Here is the pin that got those ideas flowing.

I looked around a bit more and found some more ticket stub layouts:

How would you turn these into digital layouts? Easy! You can get everything you need to scrap any of these examples. Digital pockets, digital washi, or even go hybrid! Scrap everything you need and leave a place for an tangible pocket. Stick it in your layout book and add the ticket stubs. You can also scan those ticket stubs in and use them digitally. You know, cameras are so good now days that you can just snap a photo of the ticket stub if you do not have access to a scanner. Here are some products I found around the store to get those movie and ticket stub layouts going.
Magical Hollywood by Magical Scraps Galore!

 

Movie Night by Wimpychompers

 

Let’s Get Reel by Blue Heart Scraps

 

Now Showing by LuvEwe Designs

 

Plastic Pockets by Magical Scraps Galore!

His and Hers Frames by Kathryn Estry

 

Those are just a few of the items to get those layouts started. You can also scrap by the theme of the movie! Don’t forget concert tickets either. I cannot wait to scrap my movie tickets. I am going to save them up this summer and scrap the movies of our 2015 summer.

We would love to see your movie and ticket stub layouts! Make sure to load them up to the GingerScrap’s gallery and then come back here and link us up!

Fresh Baked: April 10, 2015

April is here. That means changes in the weather from one extreme to the other. Rain in one area. Snow in another. Basically, Mother Nature is saying stay home, cuddle up inside, and scrapbook. The designers are here to help you with that! They have released some wonderful kits this week, as well as some gorgeous templates! You’ll find something, for sure, that you just can’t do without!

Before I show you the goodies, I have to share some layouts using our new Buffet and this month’s Monthly Mix is called “Dream Big


Created by CindyB. I love the angle of the picture, and the use of the mask on it!


Created by Colleen. I love how PERFECTLY the kit matches the pictures. Also, I love that she scraps older pictures!


Created by MamaCake. I love the layers and the cluster work is just wonderful!
