Project Life!


I've been thinking about it for a while, and I finally decided to embark on Project Life.  I do enjoy making scrapbook pages, but I tend to make them rather detailed, so there is no way I could catch up in this lifetime. I decided that Project Life can document the present, and when I get the urge to make full size pages, I can work on pictures from the past.

I ordered a box of a variety of Photo Pock Pages from Amazon to get started.  I also wanted to get one of the Project Life kits, but they are out of stock until later this month.  However, I discovered it's easy to do this without the kit (although I still will probably get one in the future), and it's a great way to use some of my large collection of papers!


I cut "Week 25" with my Silhouette Cameo.  It's part of Kerri Bradford's Life Additions:  Weeklies collection.  I know I don't have weeks 1 - 24, but I decided to start this day since this week was the 25th of the year.  Most people seem to do double page layouts for each week, but I think I'll probably do single pages to start.  I can always do more when we have busier weeks.


What I'm loving about Project Life is how wide open it is and that I can really use all of my supplies.  Simple Stories has a lot of journaling tags in their collections that fit in well.  My Creative Time has lots of stamps that add a nice touch too.


This funny car is cut from the Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge.  I also picked up a Smash Book Date Stamp to use throughout my album.  I love this journaling tag from Simple Stories.  Just perfect for Eric's first time on the road with me!


This awesome cut was designed by Lori Whitlock, and I purchased it in the Silhouette store.  Okay, now that I've finished explaining everything, I'm wanting to get started on week 26!

Love this layout. I bought the Amber kit a while back and have not used it yet. I too am so far behind and thought it would be a good way to catch up and not stress about it. Thanks for inspiring me to get started on my book.

I like this idea...like a picture diary. You must take pictures nearly every day? I wish I had taken more. Not sure I have something weekly to scrap about now. Great job on your page. Have fun with the new driver thing...makes life interesting!
