Exciting New Announcement!!

So do you guys remember a while back that I mentioned that I’ve been working on an exciting project for the last few months and that I was going to spill the beans in a few weeks?! Well lucky for you, today is that day!!

Keeping this a secret was HARD! I’m an open book so it’s kinda nice that we are living all the way up in Alaska, otherwise I probably would have told everyone!

Also speaking of Alaska, we are finally in our new house and alas, we have yet to get the internet, so this whole post is coming to you via my iPhone!!

Well you’ve waited long enough, here’s my big news!!!

My Last Fancy Pants Design project

what a bittersweet day it is for me, saying goodbye to Fancy Pants Designs with my very last project.

I just want to say thanks to the team over at FPD, for giving me such a great opportunity! It was a great experience to say the least.

Here’s a little preview of my very last project using their new Nautical collection which I love by the way!

Picture Keeper Review and Giveaway!

Hellloooo there! I hope you all are having a fantastic day because it’s about to get even better!

The people at Picture Keeper e-mailed me a while back, asking if i would do a review of their PK 4 product and of course I said yes! I have a long and difficult history of backing up photos, a few years ago I had a computer completely die on me, leaving me miserable about the photos that were now lost forever. 

As a scrapbooker, nothing is more important that backing up my precious photos. I’ve struggled for years trying to find ways to back up my photos that made me feel safe. I used to put everything on CD’s and you can imagine what kind of ordeal that was, i.e. how in the heck was I supposed to remember what photos were on each CD? Even with my methodical folder organization it was still hard. 

Lately I’ve been backing up my photos on an external hard drive but that scares me as well, as they are known to die just like my computer did. The process of backing them up was also a very long one, figuring out which photos I had already done and making sure I didn’t back up everything twice on accident was a

total headache.

Enter picture keeper , the game changer when it comes to backing up your photos. It seriously is sooo easy, take a look at this video I made. 

it really is  as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1. Plug in your Picture Keeper into your computers USB drive

2. Start the Picture Keeper software

3. Wait for it to finish and remove!

One of the BIG draws to this product is that you don’t have to do any of the hard work, it does it all for you! It will search through your computer and detect your photos and  it even makes sure not to copy any doubles!!! hallelujah I can hear the angels singing now!! Not to mention the fact that there’s no software to install, just plug in and go!

I mean seriously, can it get any easier? I think not!

It even had a feature to search just my iPhoto photos, which until the moment when I plugged it in, I had completely forgotten about and had never backed up, thank goodness for this little device!

Catch Up – Project Life

okay guys! As most of you know, our family has moved to the great state of Alaska! Man it has been quite a whirl wind, we left from Utah on the 23rd of January and spent some time up in Seattle with my Dad, we had to ship our cars via ferry and they took off from there. Then after staying there for about a week, we took our family and boarded a plane and landed in Anchorage last weekend. We’ve been settling into our new place and exploring the city!

 

I know I’ve been kind of absent from the blog and I’m really sorry about that but life happens, ya know? SO today I wanted to share some old (like from 2012) Project Life layouts that I made! These photos are from right after we moved to Utah. Man time flys by!! DSC_2114 DSC_2116 DSC_2118 DSC_2121 DSC_2122 DSC_2123

Catch Up – December Daily

I hope you all had a fantastic holiday!! I’m still trying to catch my breath as we are still out of town. We wanted to make sure we spend as much time with family before we make our big move to ALASKA (more on that later). So in the meantime I thought I’d get caught up on my December Daily. Here’s a few pages I made for the BasicGrey blog a few weeks ago and I just realized this morning that I hadn’t posted it here yet! Take a look.
