Pocket Life With Sam

Happy Friday everyone! Today its Sam to share a Pocket Life layout with you using April PL Kit which has a lot of happy, spring colours. I am always a big fans of scrapbooking products with spring theme. And here's my spread, using photos that I print out from my usual Canon Ixma MG6370 and also photos from my Fujifilm Instax Share.



Do you notice I added a QR code to my spread on the top left pocket of my right page? I will show you the steps in this post. It is fun and easy to add videos to your PL page.


I especially love the exclusive wood chips that come with the April kit.

The 'Today Was …' is also one of the exclusive PL card from the kit.


And here's the close-up of the QR code:
you can download QR Scanner app to your phone and try scanning this QR code form your monitor. I tried and it works!


Here's a simple tutorial on how I generate the QR code:
1. I uploaded a video of my baby playing peekaboo in a Bat Mobile to YouTube. (
2. Then I cut & paste the link to be shared to a free QR code generator website. There are a long list of these websites and I use QRstuff to generate mine. 
>> Data Type: YoouTube Video
>> Key in video ID / Video URL
>> I choose encoding option: Dynamic
>> Output type: Download

And here's the generated QR code for my YouTube video which you can just print and add to your layout or PL pages. Sometimes it is just more fun to include video into your pages.  And this is the QR Code scanner app that I use on my iPhone:

These are the PL sketches for this week post:

I hope you get inspired and add QR code to your pages to make it more interactive. And thanks for dropping by!
XoXo, Sam.

  1. Wow! What a great idea! I have seen this on layouts a few yrs back when it was all the rage! Love seeing old things become new again. Love the sunny bright colors of those pages too Sam!
