Adding Video to Your Scrapbook

I enjoy ALL types of memory keeping. I used to take all of our videos and put them together with music every six months. It was incredibly time consuming but we love looking back on those videos. We just watched the one from Quinn's first six months the other night and laughed through the whole thing. They are such a great way to document real life. I have let those slide in the last two years because I have been so involved in digital scrapbooking and they are so time consuming. I would love to get caught back up one day.

At any rate, I always thought it would be so cool to be able to incorporate live video in a scrapbook. It would be the best of both worlds. Somebody posted this link in the forum at Designer Digitals and it stopped and made me think some more about the possiblities for this. Many of you know about Project Life that was introduced by Becky Higgins who I would say was one of the most influential people in my style of scrapbooking. I love her style....clean lines, great designs and getting the story on paper. So many people around the world have embarked on Project Life and found something that fit for them. A way to document everyday life that people can keep up with. This video that was shared shows how somebody loaded their videos from their trip to Disneyworld to youtube and then placed the bar codes in their project life album. As this person turned to a page, she could sit with her phone, scan the bar code from her album and immediately see footage of that moment on her phone. I think it is a fascinating idea and who knows where this is going to end up. There is a whole lot of potential there and certainly something to think about.

  1. Oh my gosh Jana. What an amazing idea! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for putting the thought into my head! I definitely need to look in to this further. For years I’ve always thought how awesome it would be to add videos to scrapbook pages but never thought it was a possibility. I don’t even know the basics about YouTube (I’ve watched but never posted a video so I’m completely clueless), but I’m certainly going to look in to this. How fun would it be, years down the road, to pull out our scrapbooks and scan a QR Code with our smart phones and see old videos?!

    If you find out anything more about this I’d love it if you kept us posted!
