As I am starting to figure out the direction I want to go with my project life layouts this year, I am torn between using the digital version and the app.

If you remember, I am a hoarder collector of all things related to digital scrapbooking.  I have oodles of templates, elements, papers and journal cards. I really have no need to ever buy anything again and would easily be able to complete years of PL layouts. But there are so many cute new kits out there since I have bought my last stash! I mean really….Becky….come on!

Since I take 99% of my photos that I would be using for PL with my iPhone, I am tempted to just use the app. I have several kits in the app…and most of the ones I want are either 99 cents or $1.99! So much cheaper then buying all the new digital versions. I can use other apps like LetterGlow and Phonto and Rhonna Designs to tweak my photos and cards if I want and add other journaling….so wouldn’t it just make sense to use the app instead?

I decided to do a layout in each with the Strawberry kit that I have in digital form as well as in the app. Will there be a difference in the quality of the image created? Is it really capable of making the same thing from my iPad or iPhone while I’m waiting at dance class? You be the judge….can you tell a difference?
