project life: recap

Yesterday I wrapped up my project life album. I had fallen (quite) a bit behind so it was time consuming to catch up, but I am so so glad I stuck with it and finished, the end result is totally worth it. Some things I liked about this system is that it's simple. Shoot, print, write, and you're done. It is a great way to capture the everyday moments of life and pay attention to the details that you might have otherwise skipped over. I wanted to include a bit of 'normal' scrapbooking into my album so I ended up doing 3 double sided 12x12 spreads. I simply inserted the page in between the week's pages. See below for the finished pages:

What can I say, apparently I love kraft paper! Another thing that I included in this album was a newspaper clipping of the fundraising campaign I headed up. I simply cut the page to the size I wanted it, inserted it into a page protector, sewed up the side and cut off the excess, so simple!

The kit comes with pieces for the end page already in it, but I wanted to do something different for the other side so I cut down the Christmas cards we got and included them to. I thought that was a great solution since you realistically can't keep a stack of cards around all year, but I didn't want to just throw them out!

I hope you have enjoyed my 'project life' posts here on the blog, and would recommend this product to anyone interested in memory keeping. The possibilities are endless!


  1. Oh how I wish I could sit down over a cup of coffee with you and look through the whole album!!! It looks awesome! I think I need to do one of these ....maybe for 2013! How long did it take to come after you ordered it?

  2. Always wanted to try this project but so far have not. You might just have inspired me.....

  3. i love the "the story does not end here" such a pretty page! :)
