Hi and welcome! This week I am going to talk about how I have used my Project Life to make scrapbook pages. I hope that you will be inspired and do some yourself!
I have been doing Project Life since January 2012, so I am currently on my second year of recording life this way. I do love it and feel that these albums are so treasured. Every Sunday I sit down with my computer and decide on which photos and stories will be recorded that week. Since space can be an issue when scrapbooking in pockets and limiting your stories to one spread per week can be hard sometimes. Some weeks there is no problem and I feel like I have captured what I want and other weeks there are stories that need a little more attention. Now, I do add inserts to the spread sometimes, but once in a while the story needs its own scrapbook page.
It was last year that I realized that I needed to make "regular" scrapbook pages even though the stories are recorded in my PL albums. When I first started PL I almost was set on not making "regular" scrapbook pages, but when my grandmother passed I just felt that I needed to make a page that went into my scrapbook album also. This was early in the year and I had done just a couple of weeks of PL and wasn't entirely sure that I would continue that format.
The journaling on this layout is taken straight from this PL page.
It made it super simple since words on these kinds of pages can be hard. I have done more of these pages where I have used journaling that I already written it for a PL pocket.
I still do scrapbook pages that feature stories that I have already recorded in a shorter format in my PL albums, even though I know that I will continue to memorykeep with PL.
This next one was inspired my the above insert I made telling the story of how my new love and I keep finding natural heartshapes during our walks.
See you back here tomorrow for more examples!
