So, you've taken lots of digital home videos, but do they ever get watched? That was the case at our house. My husband and I would take videos (mostly on our phones), upload them to YouTube so our parents could watch them, and then there they'd sit, never to be watched again.


My husband (he's an Electrical Engineer and is obsessed with all things electronic) has been in love with QR codes since he first learned what they were.  So naturally he was MORE than thrilled when I started using them in my scrapbooks! :) The best part...it is seriously SO EASY!

First you've got to upload your video to YouTube. If you're concerned about privacy, don't worry, you can make your videos unlisted so only people with the direct link can view them. All those options are available when you upload. Once you've uploaded your video, copy the link.

Then go to this website:

Enter the URL in the "Website URL" field, then click "DOWNLOAD QR CODE".  It will automatically download to your computer.

Now you need to browse and find the code file and open it up in Photoshop. Then you can place is on one of these fancy shmancy filler cards I've made for you! The code may be too small to fill up the space, but don't worry. Just go ahead and enlarge it. You won't lose enough quality to affect the code.

And there you have it! If you don't have one already, go ahead and download a QR scanner app to your phone and start scanning away! Now all of those precious videos have their own little spot in your Project Life Album!

  7. Thanks so much for the awesome idea and the free downloads to put it in!! Question though...I just tried it and when I scanned the code i got the message that the video was private? What am i doing wrong? Have you run in to this at all? thanks again for everything. :)
