Week 2 Video
I can’t wait to hear which template you are using and see a snip of one of your pages you create this week!
Here’s where you can see Week 1
Did you know that Historian has a recycle bin? When you delete from Historian, the media goes there. That’s both good and bad. Good: you can recover accidental deletions. Bad: it takes up precious hard drive space.
I make it a regular habit to empty the recycle bin. To do that, click File > Properties.
Then click Support > Empty Recycle Bin. Sometimes it’s kind of fun to see how much space you will recover – especially if you haven’t done this in a very long time.
How much space did you save today? I’ll send you a little goodie to the highest number posted here.
Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season! Memories were made and now is the time to consider how you’ll document them.
We were able to take a last moment trip to Mexico and had a really wonderful time! We did manage to take a bunch of pictures but less so than in past trips. Since I’ve been slacking on finishing my 2015 family album and haven’t started 2016, I decided to start this year by working on our vacation album. I’ve already pulled the pictures off the camera and into Historian. They’re all tagged and star-rated. Here’s my checklist:
- Remove all images from all cameras (we used a point & shoot as well as a DSLR.) into a folder on my personal computer.
- Delete the really (really) bad pictures.
- Load all pictures into Historian.
- Select all and Name them. I used “Grand Luxxe Nueveo Vallarta” for ease in searching later.
- Tag them. I put them all into the Nuevo Vallarta box (we’ve been at least 4 times in the past 15 years and they’re all in one place). I also tagged the images for myself and my husband to make it easier for future searching.
- Go through each image and star-rate. I use 4 stars as the indicator that it must be used in my photo book and to be uploaded to my online Forever account. Three stars are the next best, in case I’d like to put more into the photo book.
- Upload the 4 starred images to Forever (this is super easy as you do it right from Historian).
- Share the Forever album with family and friends.
- Delete the folder from my personal computer.
We took just over 400 pictures during the seven day trip. My Historian account shows 365 after I deleted the really (really) bad ones. I had 45 that were four starred and shared with family and friends. This entire process took me maybe 1 to 2 hours total. Now I’m ready to work on the album!
How would you like to finish a photo book this month? Join our Finish in 4 Challenge where you will learn how to use Forever Projects to complete and order a photo book. If you’re interested, comment below (or email me with the email address you use on Facebook) so I can add you to our closed group. There will be weekly homework and accountability to help you get your project completed.
Have you seen the new freeibies that Forever has offered?
The Sweet Summer Memories Template is really versatile! I used it to capture some beach memories of a friend of mine, but I could see so many different ways and memories to preserve with this one. Maybe I’ll do a one template: many ways blog post down the road? To get this template, just complete the 2 question survey here. If, for some reason, you don’t the template, just let me know and I’ll take care of it.
And if you like to do calendars, there’s an 8 1/2 by 11 School Year calendar that’s really cute! For this one, just shop at the Forever Digital Art Store – here’s a direct link. While you’re shopping, enjoy 20% off any digital art using the code School20. Please make sure to enter your ambassador’s name at checkout.
As a matter of fact, the School20 promo code is valid for all the following products and software during the month of August:
How are you making or saving memories this weekend?
Forever has decided to do some special promotions for Back to School!
Permanent Storage is on sale for 20%! That means the 10GB account that was $349 is only $279.20. If you’re currently using the free account, this is a great time to upgrade at a great price. I’ve been putting my scanned CM albums into my own account and am loving the ease of being able to share layouts to Facebook as well as being able to enjoy viewing them on my phone through the Forever app.
In addition, both Artisan and Historian are on sale for the rest of the month. If you’ve always wanted to go digital, Artisan is the scrapbooking software I love. I can use it when I travel, whether or not I’m connected to the internet. And Historian keeps me organized. I can tag, star rate and tell the story for all my images. I can even push them from Historian into my Forever account. So easy!
Just click the images above to get more information. And stay tuned… there’s more sales to come starting next week!
Happy Friday! It’s been warm in Northern California! Summer is here for sure.
Did you know that there was a major update for Artisan (and a smaller one for Historian). Forever has improved some functionality that’s been bothering many of us. I’m so glad that they listen to their users.
The on feature that I’ve already set is the ability to turn off the ‘double-click to edit’. Here’s where you can fix that one.
Also, today starts a great sale on software and digital art. Use the promo code HOT20 to get 20% off through the end of the month. There’s a ton of new digital artwork that’s been released today. I’ll share some layouts I did for my Creative Team duties next week.

Tomorrow is interNational Scrapbook Day (iNSD) and Forever is offering 30% off software and digital art. Now is the time to purchase Artisan, Historian and/or Art. If you already have the software, free updates for both were released last week so it’s also a great time to update.
