Hi everyone!  It’s Cathy Caines from St. John’s, Newfoundland. I am delighted to share with you my first Stampin’ Up! project for the Canadian Scrapbooker blog! As scrapbookers, we long to preserve the memories and live them over and over again. I think it’s time that we went even a little bit further to share the memories.

Every time I looked at these pictures of my son, I was reminded of the video I took haphazardly on a lazy Sunday. I kept thinking to myself, how fun it would be to actually link up the video.  And like a ton of bricks, it hit me – I could include a QR code right on my layout. Just about anyone can make a simple QR code… it’s as easy as printing out another photo!

To create a QR code, you can use many different websites, but I used QR Code Generator ( www.qr-code-generator.com ). You will need to have a video, file or document online in order to link it. Once that’s done, the generator will take a second to create a code. Save as a .jpeg or .png and print. Easy Peezy!

This layout was created with Stampin’ Up! products, including the new Project Life by Becky Higgins cards and accessories. Today is a special day as they launch their 2014-2015 catalog at noon MDT. Make sure you drop by!

Until Next Time,

Cathy   (To see more of Cathy’s work, please visit her blog www.inthecatcave.com

  1. Linking a layout to a video is the coolest idea I’ve seen in a long time. Thanks for sharing!
