Last week I shared my new Project Life products and how I was excited to start turning my pictures and written memories into a beautiful scrapbook. I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to flip through the completed pages. To know that I have these special moments (both the significant ones and the ordinary everyday ones) documented makes me feel like I have something really priceless to pass along to the kids someday.
So I purchased my Project Life products back in July. My goal was to start with January 2013 and work my way to the present. I was hopeful that I would be caught up and doing Project Life in “real time” by the time baby #2 arrives. I’m happy to report – I’m just about there. I think the last week that I completed was the week of August 18th, so I’m about two weeks behind at this time.
Each week I’ll show you a few weeks of my book until I actually catch up on here to present day (if that ever happens LOL). I will let you know what kit(s) I used and what photo page layouts you’re looking at.
Tip: If you’re like me, you might using social media (for me it’s mainly Facebook) to share those seemingly insignificant memories – silly things your kids have said, various milestones, pics of your family that other people have tagged you in, etc. When I am working on a Project Life page, I go back on my Facebook timeline to that same exact week. I look for anything I may have written or recorded that corresponds to that week that is worth including in my album. For example, if it’s something funny that Lily said, I will write the quote down on a journal card and place in a pocket. So simple!
For my very first ever Project Life binder, I chose the Honey edition because it matched my core kit.
Here’s how they turned out! The first page is made up of the suggested “front cover” cards that came with the Honey Core Kit.
New Years Eve ’12 fun, awards banquet and more!
