Course Description

But what about my videos!?!?

"But, I have all of these videos! What do I do with them??" This is the question I hear most from people that want to document their memories and the lives of those they love.

For years, I've dreamed of a quick and easy way to put photos and videos together and with the most recent update by Apple to the Pages app (free app), 


In just a few taps on your compatible iPhone or iPad, you can have an iBook with ALL of your memories: 

photos AND videos TOGETHER!

You can also export the book to print with your favorite printer. I will show you exactly how! Do the work ONE time and have the best of both worlds!

Maybe you are like me and have been creating QR codes and adding them to your photo books. For a printed book, that is still the best option, but in our digital age, there is an easier way to bring photos and videos together!

In this class, I have done all of the work for you and created THREE different template sets that are preformatted for your photos and videos to easily be added in a tap. 

What if you already have a lot of completed digital pages? Or maybe you've finished a bunch of Chatbooks! There are two template sets that will work perfectly for you! Just add your completed pages or large photos (from your Chatbook) and your videos and you are ready to go! 

If you would like to build your pages directly in the Apple Pages App, there is a 22 page square template set with preformatted spots for your photos and videos! 

In this class you will learn:

  • How to use the Pages app on an iPad or iPhone to create an iBook with photos and videos.
  • How to import the templates I created for you into the Pages app and add them to the template library.
  • Apple Pages App navigation tips
  • Apple Pages App workflow tips for creating your book quickly.
  • How to customize your iBook through colors, borders, and icons.
  • How to export your book into the iBooks app for viewing.
  • How to export your book for high quality printing.

  • Captions option on all videos.
  • Any future updates for this course.

5 research-based reasons you want your photos, videos, and stories together:

  • Studies show recalling happy times from the past increases happiness now.
  • Hearing a story (beginning, middle, and end) releases the chemicals in our brain that allow us to connect, empathize, and make meaning.
  • Studies show the more children know about their family's history, the stronger their sense of control over their lives, the higher their self-esteem and the more successfully they believed their families functioned.
  • Studies indicate that telling and listening to personal narratives increases physical and mental health.
  • Research shows that telling our story causes reflection and introspection and change.

  • You want a way to have your photos and videos together and easily accessible.
