Hello! It's Laura O'Donnell here to kick off the first day of March Mini Madness IV, a monthlong event! This week we have teamed with Pixels & Company. Marnie, Francine, Carey, and I are going to take turns showing you the minis we each made using the same digital kit.
I loved working with these kits!
Did you happen to see the First of the Month Gallery? I made a digital mini book sized for iPhone viewing. I had so much making it that I made another one for today.
Today's digital iPhone mini book uses the vertical orientation where my first one had the layouts going horizontal. I'll share a little more about how I made it and how great I think it is to have a scrapbook on my phone.
A quick Google search told me that the full screen dimensions of my iPhone5 are 640 x 1136 pixels. I used this as my canvas size to make my digital layouts in Photoshop Elements.
So now pretend you are holding the phone vertically and take a look at the book, swiping the screen from right to left to see each page.
This mini book features a group of pictures of my husband and son at the park. I really like these pictures and had a feeling I wouldn't want to delete them from my phone anytime soon so they'd be a good choice to use for the mini.
And there you have it.
After I made the pages I emailed them to myself. (You could also use Dropbox.) Then I set up a new album in my camera's Photo Library and added in the layouts. Easy!
I hope you enjoyed this first mini of March Mini Madness IV. I can't wait to see what the rest of the girls have in store for us!
