I have to admit this is something I've had floating around in my head since I did Week in The Life this summer. What solidified it was a conversation I had with my friend Amy. I mentioned I was not sure if I had time for this, and she pointed out it is not really a project, but perhaps a different way of scrapbooking. That made sense to me. I really have no idea what my schedule is going to be like once I start classes, but I don't want to stop documenting our life for what could be 3-4 years of school. Ali had a really great post this morning on her blog explaining her approach to PL. I know I will not manage daily photos, but I can take photos of what is happening during our week and that is how the stories will be told.
One would think if I had been thinking of this since the summer, I might have planned it out a bit better! I decided not to get a Project Life Kit, but would not hesitate next year - to make things more simple. I went to Treasured Memories last week with PL in mind and made my own kit and here is what I came up with.
Crate Paper - Random Collection elements and papers. I also picked out some Jillibean soup - Sweet & Sour Soup papers. I love the buttons and ephemera I picked out as well. The Glitz alphabet letters and Jenni Bowlin Studio stickers will come in handy as well.
Hambly overlays and have cut a few of those up as well. I already mentioned I am using Crate Paper & Jillibean Soup papers, but I also picked out some Glitz (most of the navy blue ones), and Graphic 45 - Tropical Travelogue Collection. I managed to pick up some of the Crate Paper journaling cards, but didn't think it would be enough. So I did purchase the Celementine journaling cards from Jessica Sprague.
Becky Higgins has all of her Project Life kits available in a digital format at Jessica Sprague. I created pdf files of the cards and can easily print them off throughout the year when I need more.
The only thing I will need more of are the page protectors. I did get some at TM last week and I have some left from WITL.
There you have it. What about you? Are you doing Project Life?
