Wow. Strange feeling being back at the keyboard blogging. During the year of not blogging, I longed to have time to sit and blog. Now, here I am and questioning once again that anyone will even read it! I will trust that you’re here because you want to be…so, I will continue to type.
Many of you know that I am a scrapbooking, paper-loving addict. My current form of scrapbooking is inspired by Becky Higgins’ Project Life. If you’ve never heard about this, already struggle with finding time to document your current fast-paced family life, you should check out her site. January 2012 I took the Project Life leap and haven’t looked back!
The images above are a look at how I’ve chosen to do Project Life. I create a layout each week, whether a single layout or a double page layout, just depends on how busy my week was. I’m not good at journaling, so that is what I am attempting to improve. By using these types of page protectors, it’s almost like creating ‘mini layouts’. Each one stands alone, representing a separate event or person, yet (like a puzzle) fits together to create a glimpse of your week–your life. You can choose to simply drop in a few photos, a few mementos and no journaling. Many scrappers choose to include a lot of detailed journaling for each day. You may not have time to do any type of embellishing, or added details–that’s ok too! However you interpret it, is up to you. The goal is to simply record memories, little by little, making it work for you.
There are many scrapbook companies that are creating great products to use in your Project Life albums. Of course, Becky Higgins has her Project Life product line which can get you started. You can see her product line here. Whether you’re new to scrapbooking or an old pro, give it a try! I love it!
