Tutorial: Use Instamag App to enhance your Project life snapshots

I don't know about any of you. But I am a big fan of Instagram. I love to explore new filters and gigs to enhance my photos a little bit.
So I found InstaMag.

You can either download it for Andriod or on iTunes.

It's a FREE app. I love FREE. lol

You can just use this app like any other photo editing apps.  Click on Library, you can choose from 1 frame to 9 frames at once.

 You can also go to Magazine to download the layouts that will make your photos look like magazine cover or spreads. Then you can use the way they are or Trim them to suit your needs.

Here are some examples: I plan to print them out and include in my Project life spreads. Stay tuned and I will show you my finished spreads soon.

Hope this will inspire you to try new things when creating. :)

{A Layout} Sweet treat

{A Layout} Sweet treat

This photo was taken during our date night a few weeks ago. Hubby took me to a very nice Sushi buffet and I treated him with frozen yogurt after dinner. We had such a lovely evening.

For being married almost 11 years, we still have a lot to chat and laugh together. We enjoy each others company. I love how he always read my minds and make me laugh so hard.

I think its pretty safe to say I'd pick him all over again. lol

{A Layout} Wonder Around for our Alaska cruise trip

{A Layout} Wonder Around for our Alaska cruise trip

We've been taking the Alaska Cruise twice. And both times were just amazing.

We booked a breakfast in our balcony on the day of sailing the Tracy Arm glacier so we don't have to fight with the crowds. It was just breathtaking. The scenic along the inside passage is just spectacular. I'd love to go back again and also visit Denali National Park.

{A Layout} Gourmet life, A foodie layout with Mon Ami colection


{A Layout} Gourmet life

I am definitely a foodie. I enjoy food, and also love to try different restaurateurs, different chefs and different style of food.

And I do consider myself lucky to live in the Silicon Valley, where there are a lot immigrants live. So we do have everything here.

I am also surrounded by people who are from different countries, and have different life stories. It always amazed me how different we are but still get along so well.

So I realized I have never done any food related layout, I think this collection is perfect for this. So here you go. My very first food related layout. lol

I bought these wooden silver wares in Taiwan, aren't they just adorable and perfect with the dolliy?

Happy Spring wall art.

I really love the photos my friend took for me when we went to the Filoli garden two week ago.
It's blooming so beautifully in the garden right now. I truly enjoy this season in the Northern California before it gets too hot. Right now, it's so comfortable. Love it.

For this project, I also put my Metalic Krylon Paint into another good use after I spray onto my dollies. I spray paint on this 12X12 wood paper from the Dear Lizzy daydreamer collection. It turns out awesome.

Love the result.
