A few years ago I decided to give Becky Higgins' Project 365 a try where I attempted to take a photo a day for the entire year. I was doing pretty well until July of that year when my computer died and I lost 2 months of photos that hadn't been backup up or printed. That was the end of my project that year.
In 2012, I've decided to join in with Becky Higgins' Project Life. My plan is to keep things very simple so that it will continue to be something that I enjoy doing throughout the entire year. This is going to be a place where I record that daily happenings of our family life. It may not be too interesting or exciting most days, but I think it will be a treasure to look back on this album as time goes on.
I also plan on continuing to create scrapbook layouts highlight special stories and moments that I don't want to forget. Project Life will be something extra that I plan to add into the way our memories are preserved.
My supplies have arrived and are ready to go.
Project Life Clementine Core Kit
Project Life Clementine Patterned Paper
Photo Pocket Pages Design A
Photo Pocket Pages - Big Variety Pack 1
6 X 12 Page Protectors
I'm going to use an American Crafts 3-ring album that I already have on hand.
I don't plan on only using the Clementine items, but I wanted to keep it simple and this kit will help me do that. The cards are already cut to fit right into the page protectors. As the year progresses, I'm sure my plan will evolve. But one part of the plan will hopefully stay the same: Keep it Simple.
I'm excited to get started on this project. Only 4 days until the 1st!
Also, this year I have loved using some of the digital elements that Ali Edwards has created and has available on Designer Digitals. All of the Christmas products are 30% until January 1st at 6:00 a.m. I just bought a couple of sets. They may be used when I finish up my December Daily for this year. If not this year, then they will be ready for next year!
Ali has a cool tutorial on her blog showing how to trace the images so that they can be cut out by a Silhouette machine. Definitely want to try this.
