Today I usually collage some of my favorite Instagram photos from the previous week of our days but this time I took a different approach. I guess you could call this my first official Project Life page. I’ve been busy on other things so I took some baby steps to start project life… baby steps. I’m so glad I did because I love it! Although, I used some random page protector I’ve had on my desk for a few weeks begging me to fill with memories, the grid printed cards are an official Project Life product and are perfect to journal and layer on. For those of you who haven’t heard of Project Life: It’s a product and system created by Becky Higgins and a way to document your memories in a simpler fashion than scrapbooking. It’s awesome because it seems like scrapbooking went full circle and back to the basics with Project Life. Simply pair your photos and journaling with pre-designed title cards and journaling cards. Your photos, these cards, and even your memorabilia slip into the Photo Pocket Pages and that’s it. The result is a stylish masterpiece that represents your life or whatever occasion you choose to record. I said baby steps because Becky was sweet enough to send me her products last summer and I’m just now getting started. I’m all about making my memory keeping processes faster and easier so I will hopefully keep adding to my Project Life album each week.
Since apparently I cannot get enough of vellum, I used my vintage pink typewriter to type journaling onto three pieces of 3″x3″ white vellum then added a kraft heart sticker to the bottom center edge. I attached the photo and vellum to the outside of the pocket with my Tim Holtz tiny attacher. I’ve always enjoyed layering elements of my pages on the outside of my page protectors and this was no different. I added the tickets and clothespin, clothing tag, brad with ribbon and wood veneer camera on the outside of the protector. I don’t know why… I’m just weird like that and love having some texture showing when I can.
Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend!! xo, Lizzy
