Color My Life® is a cataloging app designed exclusively for paper crafters. Quickly and easily organize and catalog your paper crafting supplies. Spend more time designing and creating, and less time searching through disorganized inventory. Stop buying the same item twice (or more)! Add items to your wishlist for future purchases. Add a storage location so you know exactly where to find your supplies when you need them. We’re here to help you get organized!

Color My Life has an intuitive user-centric design and features these capabilities:
• Barcode Catalog: Quickly add an item by scanning a barcode or searching the barcode catalog. Color My Life automatically populates the item’s image and attributes. We are continually adding to the barcode catalog with new manufacturers and product releases.
• Duplicate warning: Adding an item with a duplicate barcode will generate a warning.
• Smart Color Tagging: Automatically create color tags based on the item’s image.
• Storage Location: Add a storage location, so you know exactly where to find your supplies when you need them.
• Searching and Filtering: Find your items by searching for both word and color tags. Use the filtering tool to select a Manufacturer or Category.
• Create sets: Items that are used together, like a collection or coordinating stamps and dies, can be combined into sets, so they are easy to find even if they are stored separately.
• Project Organization: Much like a recipe, Color My Life brings supplies and inspiration together as projects.

Lots of Potential

I have this app on my iPad, and granted, there’s going to be some time before this is where it needs to be for a native tablet style feel. Regardless, I still prefer it to Evernote. With that said, I’m hoping that CML can partner with even more stamp, die, and paper manufacturers to add more barcodes and images to make this a truly seamless way to input database items related to crafting. I hope you guys have started reaching out to more companies to demo your product and get more support. I know many have had issues with the product not working without a small monthly paid subscription (with a free trial prior to the subscription onset). I have no problem subscribing for the product to work if it’s within my budget; small companies deserve an opportunity to make some money to develop, and having worked for a startup company, I am always happy to help as a consumer. I know all of the difficulties that go into new development, and how important even a small bootstrap income can be.
In any case, good luck, guys. Thanks for testing the waters with this, and I’m happy to provide any feedback you may require.

CML saves me so much money and time!

I have uploaded nearly 5000 items into this crafts inventory program and may have another several thousand to go. A quick check on my phone, iPad or iMac (whichever is close at hand) I can quickly determine if I have an item before wasting money on ordering duplicate items. When I want to make something I can quickly search by tags to see all the relevant stamps, dies, embossing folders and other related items I have on hand to choose from as well as see where the ones I want are located. I first purchased this app in December of 2020, and appreciate how the owners continue to listen to their subscribers and keep adding improvements. My favorite craft supply company doesn’t participate with CML so I don’t use the barcode reader function to upload data offered by many companies who do participate—a feature many users love—but I personally prefer to copy and paste directly from the manufacturers websites. But for many users this is a great function, and if you no longer have your packaging with barcodes you can still search CML’s massive database to find and populate your account. I love, love, love this app!

Excellent App

The Color My Life app is excellent! I’ve entered my craft supplies in order to remember what I have and not purchase duplicates. When making a card, I search by key words such as Christmas, or Easter, “Happy Birthday,” etc. The app pulls up the stamp set containing the sentiments or graphics I want to use and I can pull the stamp set out of my supplies. It’s quick and easy. I also have my card stock entered into the app, along with inks, embossing powders, and Copic markers. When I shop at stores or online, I simply go the this app and check to see what I have already purchased. You can include photos of each item added into the app, along with notes, etc. It seamlessly syncs from my iPhone to my iPad. There’s the web version out now also, this app had done everything I have asked it to do. I had a question this week on a change of my email, and received a reply very quickly. I rate their customer service a 10 out of a 1-10 scale. I’m not receiving anything for doing this review nor am I affiliated with Color My Life. I’m simply leaving an honest review.
