Photogenic : the Groove Book

I was so excited when I saw the episode of Shark Tank that featured the Groove Book. The concept is great and the answer to the memory keeper in your life. First, you download the Groove Book app. Next, you choose 100 photos and upload them. Finally, confirm and you receive your book in the mail. I placed my order on March 9th and received my book on March 26th. The cost of the book is a flat $2.99. So every 30 days you receive another 100 photos. This is perfect if you use Project Life or any other pocket page system or if you just love creating layouts of your memories. The book is bounded in a perforated album which includes the time stamp of when the pictures was taken which is another bonus when you are journaling. The issue I have with this book is that the quality of the pictures are not as good as the ones that can be purchased at you neighborhood pharmacy photo department. The photo is printed on a glossy thin paper and the clarity of the photographs are not as precise as I would like them. Some of the photos were blurry and dark. If the the thin photograph and quality is not as important than the actual documentation than you will enjoy this concept and book. Unfortunately, for me I do prefer a better quality photograph but absolutely love this concept. I will love to order another book again in a few months to see if there are any changes to this Groove Book. For now, my seven year old daughter is excited to be using these pictures in her scrapbook albums / smash book.

If you want a free copy of the Groove Book, please respond to this post and I will send you the Promo Code. Once you receive your book, please leave me feedback regarding your experience.



St. Patrick Day 1st Grade Project

I just wanted to share this quick family project that we made for Moriah this evening. Her craft project that is due in class tomorrow is to catch the leprechaun. We had fun getting last minute supplies at the craft store and using my craft stash to enhance our project. Moriah love that her daddy and I was just involved as she was and the final results was this adorable trap for the leprechaun. Please share your St. Patrick Day projects with us.





Cricut Explore Part 1

After many years of wanting an electrical die cutting machine, the new release of the Cricut Explore has found a home in my craft loft.  The new design space and the Anna Griffin exclusive has made my creative projects more inspiring.  So for many who is still not sure about this new Cricut Explore here’s the real craft scoop.  First of all, you receive the actual Cricut Explore Machine, the cutting mat, blade,  card stock, vinyl, iron on, and duck tape sheets.  Also, you’ll receive a metallic silver pen and a bag.  Second, the accessory kit is a separate purchase but is worth it because in this kit you’ll get the score tool, spatula, tweezers, scarper, weeder, and scissors. There is also a pen accessory set that they offer which is my next investment.  I am still navigating through the Design Space which with any new software has experienced a few delays but has improved.  I also found when I used a newer updated computer there were less issues and delays.  Finally,  I started off by making simple projects by using the make it now feature and has found it easy to navigate.
