Another Project Life Update

If you know me, you know I love this Project! I have no affiliation with PL, I just love it :) Read my other Project Life Posts HERE and HERE. I am working on my 2011 and 2012 at the exact same time which is crazy and not recommended ha! I keep forgetting what year and writing the wrong dates! Especially with the boys being only 18 mos apart I’m like what kid is that… and what year?? Here is a little update from the craft room. I am up to date on both years through May… woo hoo! For 2011 I have the Amber Core Kit and for 2012 I have the Cobalt Core Kit.

I am trying to use different materials like sequins and buttons. I have a love for sequins.

Another new thing I love, I just staple embelishments right onto the photo which is kind of liberating for some reason. I used quite a few staples on this page… also please don’t judge these one month old Clyde pics, yes he is almost 2. Better late than never?

As I work more on my book I get more creative with other textures. It looks so much more interesting to break up the solid picture pages.

I am in love with this Monthly Calendar stamp. HERE is a similar one. I use it all the time!

I have been using these 6×12 page protectors for cards.

A lot of people use Project Life as a “week in the life project” or a “photo a day” but that’s not really my style. Sometimes, like with Clyde’s Bday above I have 50 pictures from one day. Then some months we don’t have a lot going on so a whole month will fit on 1 page. Here, I made a whole page just about ampersand. These pics range from about 3 months but I thought they would look better together.

And here is a whole month on a page.

I love using these pages Design G and Design H for the Monthly Updates. I want them to be on their own page but I don’t need 4 or 5 of the same picture so these smaller pages work great for me.

And two of my favorite title pages….

I used a real band-aid for a page all about first Clyde’s ER Trip. I thought I was being so original but then I saw some band-aid stickers last week that looked just like it.

So does anyone out there do project life? If you have pictures PRETTY PLEASE link them up in the comments, I would love to see some new ideas.

    Love this project. I make a scrapbook for my Grandson after every birthday party and he thinks it is so neat. I always tell everyone…take lots of photos, because you can’t go back and do it. Your boys certainly make beautiful photos!

    I scrapbook but I don’t do Project Life. I started to do a full year in January but, somewhere along the line I got distracted. I find this new way of scraping very liberating to the old way I used to do it. Your book is gorgeous and what an undertaking….

    This project is such a wonderful idea. I must try this. I am in love with the calendar stamp. This is such an inspirational post. I would love it if you would share this post at our WIW linky party. Hope you can join us. :-)

    I love Project Life. It’s a great way to capture what’s going on and it’s simple enough for anyone (including scrapbook disabled people like me) to complete. xoxo
