This past year marks the second year I have completed a Project Life album. It seems like just yesterday that I was placing the first photos in my album!
I take a lot of photos during the week, but there are some days on which I don’t pick up my camera at all. So I don’t have a photo from every day of the week. Some days–like when we go to the pool with friends–get more than one photo.
In August I discovered Studio Calico’s Project Life monthly kit. I was instantly hooked! I loved getting fun embellishments to use in my album.
I don’t really plan my spreads beforehand. I print out the photos that I like, place them in the pockets, then fill in when necessary. I always (well, almost always) leave at least one pocket for journaling. There have been a few weeks that I had too many photos and I ran out of space! In those cases I have added extra pocket pages or placed my journaling on the outside of the pockets.
The End! I enjoy doing a Project Life album along with my traditional scrapbook layouts. This year, my goals are to plan my pages a little more and have more fun with embellishments. Now I just have to wait for the UPS man to bring my new album for the year!
