PART 2 -Apps I love & how I use them. Grids, Fun labels & Filters (tutorial)
My daughter loves our scrapbooks – it is like an illustrated fairytale of her (our) life – how could you not love that!?
I love the IDEA of scrapbooks and I love scrapbooks themselves.
I love all of the little stickers, stamps, tapes and decorations for scrapbooks.
I love having a hard copy of the most important photos on my computer.
What I do NOT love is the stress of scrapbooking.
When I bought an iPhone, I discovered some fantastic, easy apps & the stress disappeared when I developed a “SYSTEM” that is fast – and fun!
I still get to use all those wonderful little decorations and we actually have a scrapbook to sit down and look through – which is better than a box of mixed up photos any day!
Scrapbooking with Iphone apps – made EASY, divided into three posts (I post on Wednesdays at 11:30 MT).
1. Scrapbooking with an iPhone – my SYSTEM & apps
2. Apps I love & how I use them. Grids, Fun labels & Filters (tutorial).
3. Tying up the loose ends from parts 1 & 2, extra apps – everything comes together!
SO HERE WE GO! PART 2!
Apps I love & how I use them. Grids, Fun labels & Filters
VISUAL TUTORIALS OF MY FAVORITE APPS!
This app allows you to combine up to 5 photos into a grid and add labels.

If you will be using your photo grid for a 5×7 postcard with the app PhotoCard, be sure to click the 3:2 measurement in the upper right corner (See #1).
2. Montage Magic ($.99)
This app allows you to combine tons of photos, label them and has great backgrounds – wonderful when you want to use more than 5 photos!
I previously posted a tutorial of this app and you can find it here!
3. Bill Atkinson’s PhotoCard – Postcards ($0.99)
This is my MUST HAVE app. It is the backbone of my scrapbook – I use grids, filters & labels on my photos and always import them into PhotoCard to send a finished 5×7 laminated photo postcard to myself for my scrapbook.

FILTERS & LABEL APPS
No tutorials on these apps – the filters are either super easy or difficult enough that I just mess with them until I get something I like and then save it; the labels are the same!
(great for adding a cute label to one photo)
(great for speech bubble photos and text)
Love this app! Let’s you add text like a ransom note with cutout letters!
Easy – SUPER FUN
– only works for square photos – it will force you to make your photo a 1:1.
This is my “go to” for editing
Easy photo editing; great filters
Iris Photo Suite
Hard – unless you just play around with it until you find something you like.
Play around with it.
