Project Life: The Stuff

Project Life has been coming along for me, although I have gotten behind (only one week behind now! Woohoo!) I don't love feeling "behind" in scrapbooking, but I do love having a record of the little things we do each week. Jury's out on Project Life until the end of the year, I think:)

But in the meantime, I do want to share the things I use on each Project Life spread. In the interests of convenience, I've been using the Design A page protecters for each week, along with the Clementine kit (I mostly use the journaling cards).

For each spread I create a "title card" and use this fun Smash rolly stamp:


And then I use tons of label stickers as captions for the photos:


I also love to add fun bits of washi tape:


And staples from my beloved Tiny Attacher!  (I'm generally not a tool person, but you need this one--trust me.)


Here's an example of a weekly page (I only do one side--keeping it simple, folks!)


And sometimes I like to mix it up with atypical embellishments. I was feeling nostalgic about E's moving up a size (goodbye, newborn ensembles--sniff sniff!) so I took a bunch of her tags and added some confetti and sewed them into a page protecter.  It adds something different and some color and I love it!


So there you have it--my Project Life as of right now. Do YOU get that "behind" feeling from PL? If so, how do you shake it?

  1. I love the idea of saving those tags, Keshet! Genius. Miss just turned two got her new school uniform yesterday in size three! Eek! I think one page a week with a new baby is a great effort!

  9. Keshet, until yesterday I was three weeks behind! My dog passed away on March 30 and I absolutely could not bring myself to PL after that. I didn't want to write about him in the past tense, to have weeks of PL without him in it. :(

    Anyway, I knew that it was important to continue wiht PL, so I finally got through it, and as of yesterday I am caught up. I feel so relieved. Yet, I also feel stressed that I made myself a bit crazy about it. Ha!

  11. I love this. I'm doing my own homemade version, inspired very much by you and others. I don't have the "real" album, I'm just sticking stuff down but rounding my corners etc. And I'm pretty much caught up! I can't quite believe it, but I am loving doing it so much.

  12. Likewise, you can deploy switch to site even when he's not well
    aware of HTML rules. It's existed for a few decades and I was amazed I had not become aware of it.
    But is could be the MySpace rage finally over?
