It’s time for another Digital Freebie Template

Hey there! It’s been a little while since I did my first freebie, so I thought it was time for another. I’ve taken another fave scrapbook page, that I think is very versatile, and turned it into a digital template for you!

Creative Team Layout Tracker and Challenge Layout Tracker Freebies

Hello there! I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel like being the Memory Keeper for my family can be quiet overwhelming. If you scrapbook digitally or traditionally with paper, there is a chance that you are either are on a Creative Team for a designer (or store) or that you regularly participate in challenges.

I do both … and I admit, keeping up with it all can be a challenge.

With my Creative Teams, I have to know which products are releasing when, the name of the page I created with the designer’s kit so I can easily find it when the kit goes live, and make sure I am uploading to all my galleries and social media in a timely matter. If you are on one team it can be daunting, if you are many … it can become quiet the task to manage it all!

I use this Creative Team Layout Tracker to keep my CT layouts organized.  I print a few out each month, punch holes into the side, and place into my binder.  I wanted to pass it along to you, in case you felt it could come in handy. It really has become a life saver for me! Click on the image to download.

CT Layout TrackerAnd because I like to participate in store challenges, I also created one to keep track of those layouts as well. Even though it is not a commitment to upload these layouts anywhere except for the store that is hosting the challenge, I do often like to include these layouts in my various galleries. This sheet helps me keep track of what challenges I need to complete, the deadline and the galleries that I want to upload them to. Feel free to download my Challenge Layout Tracker by clicking on the image!

A Project Life freebie for you | Collect App – like Journal Card

Hello. I’m back with another Digital Project Life post this week. If you follow Becky Higgins’ blog, you might have seen a little spotlight on me last week … my Project Life tips and a peek into my creative space. If you missed it, you can see it here.

Some of you have asked me about my Collect App “looking” journal cards that I use in my weekly spreads like this one:

digital project life amy tangerine plus one

… where I have the white journal card, the date, a small photo & some journaling. I created these cards myself.

I created them because I love using the Collect App on my iPhone. It has made my process of collecting memories: both the photos and the journaling notes of that moment, super easy. But for some reason, and maybe it’s just me, but when I export the collect file using dropbox, I get this weird shadow around the file and it does not fit into the masks (or pockets) of my Project Life templates very well. They do print out beautifully if using in your real Project Life pages!

So I just created my own. I have it saved as a .PSD file and open it whenever I’m working on a weekly PL spread.

PL_CollectAppTemplate

And I’m happy to share it with all of you. You can download the PSD file here.

This file is free for Personal Use. If you would like to share, all I ask is that you refer friends to my post here on my blog to download. Thanks! 😉

With this PSD file you can clip a photo to the black square mask, alter the date & journaling, as well as change the font to whatever suits your style. It is a 3×4 journal card. If you do end up using it on your pages … I’d love to see a link to your layout! Please feel free to share your page by linking in the comments section!

I have used Belta Bold for my journaling (11 pt) & Linux Libertine for the date (16.24 pt for lettering & 43.3 pt for the numerals). Both fonts can be download for free at Dafont.com. If you do not have these fonts installed on your computer, Photoshop will update the text to an alternate font.

Some readers of Becky’s blog were having trouble finding the Collect App and I’m afraid it looks like this is an Apple App … no android version. So sorry! Here’s the Collect App website, where you can read about all the features they offer & a link to download it. It has been a true lifesaver for me! Here’s a little snap shot of this morning’s photo.

Since I have always been an iPhone user and have no knowledge whatsoever in the realm of androids, I will refer you to the Daily Digi’s lovely post about Memory Keeping Apps (this specific question for android users is addressed). Be sure to read the comment/reply at the bottom of the post too. 😉 If anyone is an android user and they have found a super great alternative to share, please let us know in the comments section!

Basically Collect App is like a visual calendar. As you can see from my iPhone snap shot of April’s Collect Calendar, I am not perfect … two days have no photos what so ever. No sweat though … ’cause there are some days I have too, too many photos to choose from. It all works out.

Project Life and no stress are things that should go hand in hand. Keep it simple!
