Digital scrapbooking has never been so easy! Check out DotGlu and create beautiful scrapbook pages in minutes!
I have a new addiction: DotGlu for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. This app is perfect for moms like me. It is a quick and oh-so-easy way to capture priceless memories in beautiful digital scrapbook pages. The BEST part is that it takes absolutely ZERO creativity or artistic ability! The app does everything for you! The result is amazing scrapbook pages that you can print, share, or store your memories for years to come!
DotGlu is pretty easy to use but I would recommend watching the helpful two-minute tutorial video that comes with the app to learn about all of the features of this app. Basically all you do is pick a memory or event or subject to scrapbook, or in their terms you “Build a Memory”. You can enter a place where the memory happened, details surrounding the memory or memorable quotes from that time. Next, you can select the people who were with you for this event or memory. The app gives you the option of saving a profile for people who will appear frequently in your pages. You can choose a profile picture for them and enter their birthdate if you want. By entering their birthday, DotGlu will automatically calculate their age when the memory you are scrapbooking occurred. Finally, you add pictures, video clips and even audio clips to your memory. Now you are ready to choose your template. There are numerous templates to choose from. The app comes with several free templates or you can purchase additional templates in-app for $0.99 each. Simply select the template you like and DotGlu does the hard part for you. In the blink of an eye all of your photos, video and audio clips, quotes, details, etc. are transferred to your template. Each template is professionally pre-formatted to make sure that your page looks fantastic. Once you are satisfied with the page you can save it to your device or the cloud or share them on your favorite social media site. It is so easy and fun it is almost too good to be true!
I am so creativity-impaired it is embarrassing. Nor do I have the space and money to buy and store hundreds of dollars in scrapbooking supplies. Not to mention finding the time to sit down and create (or attempt to create) beautiful scrapbooks that my kids will treasure for the rest of their lives. This app is the perfect solution for me. I love how fast and easy it is. I sat down to play around with this app for the first time and within 30 minutes I had figured out how to use it and made 4 super cute pages for my son! The free templates are really attractive and I think $0.99 is a very reasonable price for additional templates. I know what I will be doing over my holiday break! I never thought I’d say it but…I’ll be SCRAPBOOKING!!!!
