Project Life {getting started}


I get asked a lot, how do you do Project Life?  And while there is NO right or wrong way to do PL (you can make it simple or super creative.  I tend to stick to the simple), I thought I would do a post of some of the basics to get started.  

PL has revolutionized my scrap-booking!!  I love the simplicity of it and if I want to go CRAZY, I can.  I currently use the digital version of PL, but I started out using the paper version.  

I am going to talk about the paper version today, since that is the easiest and most popular way to do PL.  The digital version is easy too, you just need a photo editing software and have basic knowledge of a few tasks (ex.  clipping mask/layer order/adding text).


I have added an Amazon link with some of my favorite PL products (you can just click on it and it will take you directly to Amazon).  **ETA For some reason, I don't think thisLlist shows up when you view on a mobile device.  I will update with links this weekend**


Here are some supplies to start out with, but like I said before, you can use whatever you like:
  1. Most importantly, YOUR photos (I like to have mine printed at COSTCO).
  2. Photo Pocket Pages
  3. PL Kit of your choice (I always go with something that would match any theme).  Some of my favorites are HERE HERE, HERE.
  4. Pen (for journaling).
  5. 12x12 Album for your completed pages.

*Kit shown is Turquoise).



Pin It

I like to start out by placing all my journaling cards, filler cards, title cards in the pocket pages (you can always move them around later), You can see how I fill up my photo pages  HERE.  Then comes the fun part...adding your photos.  Once you get your pictures in place, journal away.  Some people like to scrap as they go.  Either way, you will see how fast and easy it is to preserve your memories!! 




 Pretty easy, huh??
Enjoy Today!!

That looks like such a fun way to scrapbook! I am terrible at doing it. I have three scrapbooks with photos sitting on the first page, waiting to be decorated and scattered throughout.
