I found out about Project Life through Elsie’s post a few months ago. I loved the concept. I’ve done scrapbooking in the past but could never keep up with it. I hated storing all the supplies, and I hated the mess it made whenever I got them out to work. Project Life, on the other hand, can be as simple as an album, pages, and some cards, or as complex as you want to make it with cutters, embellishments, etc.
I wound up getting my starter kit (details below) as a gift for my birthday. Thanks Mom & Dad!
I also picked up this corner punch to easily round the corners of all my photos to match the cards in the Core Kit. I had a set of acid-free markers on hand, so that’s what I’ve been using to do the journaling in my book. (I may pick up a few more colors soon, though!)
I love how the whole set of supplies is so self-contained. It cleans up easily and can be tucked away without a big ordeal.
I’m not attempting to do the 2-page spread per week thing that so many people are doing right now. (That’s awesome, but I think I need to work up to that level of commitment, ha ha.) Instead, I’m just trying to keep up with documenting my favorite snapshots, holidays, family events, etc.
Here’s what I have so far:
Spread #1: Our pregnancy announcement and sonogram photos
Spread #2: More sonogram pictures and some growing-belly bump pics
Spread #3: More belly bump pictures and pics from my 31st birthday
Spread #4: Easter 2013
