More Project Life details

Maura posted a comment on my recent Project Life post and asked:

Question - do you use the kit from Becky Higgins, or do you choose your own materials to work with? I noticed she has all kinds of page dividers which would be fun to work with.

I thought that I would answer here in a bit more detail. For the past three years, I have purchased her kits. This year I got the Clementine Core Kit:
 as well as the Design A Page Protectors:
However, as soon as these become available I will also be purchasing the Big Variety Pack:
as well as the dividers:
 And I recently switched all my binders to the We R Memory Keepers Dark Chocolate 12x12.

That being said, this project can either be very detailed with all the bells and whistles or very simple with really just a binder and page protectors. After all the most important items are the photos and journaling. I've seen examples on the internet where people cut down their cardstock to the right size, add stamping or a bit of scrapbook embellishments and they're good to go. No core kit needed at all. After all, we all have patterned paper and cardstock in our stashes.

Find what works for you...a photo a day, various photos from the week, or even a two page spread that has photos for each month, etc. Collect "evidence" of your life--receipts, mail, clothing tags, product packaging, etc. and include that in a space. Make it your own and above all....have fun with it. I actually look forward to the time I set aside each Monday to work on my book. And believe me...these albums are above all others....our favorites.

Now are you ready to document your 2012?

  1. Thanks for sharing more on the Project Life. The more you share about it, the more I am tempted to try again. Sometimes I think if I had a camera that I carried around with me all the time, I would do more, but then again, I like your ideas of using all those everyday items we all pick up to include too.


It was so nice of you to visit and leave a comment, thanks!!
