“Taking Another Look @ Project Life!”

images

The last time I attempted this last year, I was trying to do Project 365 (a photo a day) as well and I got lost and disgruntled with not being able to keep up :( Since then I have gone back to scraping layouts which is my first love, but with so much study atm and work, fitting my ‘therapy’ in is getting harder and harder.

So, I have taken another look @ Project Life, and how I can succeed this time around and continue. I found a couple of great groups on Facebook I have joined who are very encouraging and helpful and I have been doing a bit of research on Google to get some ideas as well :)

This is a great place to start if you are like me http://sweetrosestudio.com/project-life-for-beginners

For lots of info about this way of scrap booking visit the founder http://www.beckyhiggins.com/

I love taking photos and I either use my Iphone which I have with me all the time and my Nikon camera :) I have the Project 365 app on my phone and I can take notes as I go so I have info when I go to do my pages :)

I realize now, I don’t have to scrap every photo that I take but make a story of each week of our life!! I am going to use the 4×6 Pocket Pages from Kaszazz to start with and do one layout a week of the main photo, if time permits! This way I can use up more of my stash and be creative :) The other photos I will print with my Selphy and journal, adding a bit of embellishment. The idea is to get it done quick :)

This is how I attempted it last time doing it in layout from if you are interested https://myscrapnaddiction.wordpress.com/?s=project+life

Also Pinterest is great inspiration – http://pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=project%20life

I am hoping to continue doing this in the long-term, I just need to grasp it and go with it :) I know it is an odd time to start but like they say, “start when it is right for you” :) Once I get going and get the hang of it I may go back and do some previous months of this yr also :) I am starting with the first week of September 1/9 so I can get the hang of it :)

You can buy the kit which is already to go, but I am using my stash and doing my own thing :) I just Googled it and you get heaps of  information and layout ideas :)

You can do as much or as little as you want :)  I think for me, getting some photos into an album, without too much stress is the way to go! I would rather get this done weekly than nothing at all :)

I hope maybe I have inspired you to give it a go too :)
