Today I am sharing some recent layouts I created using the Project Life App and the new Bright Overlays and Overlays Value Kits by Heidi Swapp. If you want to one-up your photos, project life cards or layouts just a wee tiny bit, these overlays are the ticket (not to mention that anything by Heidi Swapp is always amazing)! I’ve been a long-time fan of digital overlays starting with the Just Add Color Photo Overlays by Becky Higgins. You can read more about that here. Having the ability to now use them in the Project Life App just makes me happy. ♥
For these layouts, I used the Overlays two different ways: Overlays + my photos and Overlays + filler/journaling cards from the Memories in the Making Edition kit (SU!). I had no problem finding ways to use the overlays in these layouts highlighting my daughter’s birthday party and our mini summer vacation. I am thrilled with how they turned out and even happier with how easy it was to create them!

There’s nothing complicated or fancy to using overlays in the Project Life App — tap and drop like you would with any other kit in the Project Life App. Use overlays as a way to add visual layers to a filler/journaling/title card or to add words or graphic elements directly onto your photos. The beauty in using the Project Life App is that you can “try-on” different overlays and if you don’t like what you see, simply press the undo button (that little backwards arrow in the bottom left corner of the screen). Being able to “un-do” is just one of the many joys of digital memory keeping!
If you want to see how other people are using these overlays and/or the Project Life App in general, visit (or join) the App Scrappers – Project Life Facebook Group. It’s a great place for inspiration and for sharing tips and tricks related to using the Project Life App.
Until next time,
