Loving Project Life!

I have started off the new year with a bang! I've got my creative mojo back and I'm absolutely loving it! This year I decided to record our lives using the Project Life system. I bought a bunch of page protectors and a Turquoise edition core kit back in early December and I was itching to start ever since. So roll on the first of the year and I was mad for it!
I love that Project Life simplifies things in so many ways. I had bought a selection of different styles of protectors but with a little further thought I think I'd like to stick with just Design A which gives me 4 horizontal 4x6 pockets and 4 vertical 3x4 pockets. The core kit has journaling cards, and patterned paper cards which you slip into the pockets along with a selection of photos and any ephemera collected over the time period. I'm planning to tackle this project on a weekly basis and dedicate a double page spread per week, although I'm completely open to extending a spread to cover any time period since I plan to always use my top left 4x6 pocket as the 'title' where I'll record the dates covered in that spread.


Week 1
Love, love, love this! Like I said it simplifies, and yet for me it's totally got my creative juices flowing because right now I'm enjoying playing a little lot more! I have dug into my stash and pulled out heaps of bits and bobs of product I've hoarded and stored it all on my desk in a basket - as well as using just the core kit cards I'm wanting to add other scrapbooking-y type elements. And whilst I'm sure I could pull off a spread in 1/2 hour I'm spending half of Saturday just playing and being creative. And man, have I missed it!
Week 2

It's given me opportunity to pull out my lovely collection of embellishments and all those scraps of patterned papers and RE-discover my love for scrapbooking.

I'm back! And I love that this is such a 'in the moment' way of scrapbooking. Roll on the next 50 weeks!
