HELLO LIFE 2012. That's right! I've decided to jump on the bandwagon and participate in Project Life. These days, my scrapbooking time is somewhat limited, but it's still important to me to document our days and capture life's journey. I'm so excited to be doing this and I hope to be able to continue to add to my album throughout the year.
I am not going to stress out about it because I want to enjoy the process. I plan to break it up by month and I know some months will have more photos or more journaling than others and that's okay. I'll just see how it goes...
For those of you not familiar with Project Life, it's a concept that Becky Higgins introduced where you have a core kit (I chose the Clementine version, which I LOVE) that includes cards for titles and journaling. You insert photos alongside these cards, as well as anything else you are inspired by (receipts, art, greeting cards, event programs, invitations, etc.) And that's it! No adhesive needed and very little (or no) embellishments.
Here's my title page for 2012. Here I did embellish quite a bit and I typed up my journaling, but I plan to keep the rest of the album simple using my own handwriting.
I'm using the Project Life page protectors and envelope pages inside an American Crafts album (from my own stash). I also added Ali Edwards' Hello Life Boxes from Designer Digitals to the front of my album (I may also incorporate these inside at some point).
Are you doing Project Life this year? Please share! Let's keep each other motivated... It's going to be a great year! :)
