Oh, Project Life. I love the idea of Project Life’s very simple yet trendy memory keeping. Thus far I have just loved the idea, oh, and gathering supplies, and doing unnecessary perfectionist prep work that just ends up stalling my starting (and finishing for that matter). Below is a short tell-all of where I am at with Project Life, where I hope to soon be, and how I plan to get there. You can do it, too, if you’re not where you want to be like I am or if you aren’t familiar with Project Life at all.
Here’s a close up of the basket with photos. They are organized by week for 2013. This is where the unnecessary perfectionist prep work comes in. I should have just put them in photo pockets and into an album with cards instead of organizing them in a basket! Now they are in a basket and not an album! Lesson learned.
The albums have yet to be labeled – one for 2013, 2014, and my oldest son’s personal album. I just added buying an album for my newborn to my “to do” list. Oh, and here is an up close of what’s in between the albums. Inside those folders that I stash are memories for the albums such as birthday cards, artwork, and memorabilia from trips.
Since Stampin’ UP launched a Project Life line (#PLxSU) I am giddy inside with excitement. Stampin’ UP offers my favorite paper products and now that they are creating their own line of Project Life, I can’t sit on the sidelines anymore! I have the Everyday Adventure collection and its versatility inspires me to get going. My plan is to scrapbook from this day forward and if I find myself on track, I will look back and catch up a week or two from earlier this year. I think the pictures in the basket from 2013 may be in there for a while…
I’m also inspired by the other collections #PLxSU is launching on June 2, 2014 in the new Stampin’ UP catalog. I’ve seen them and they are so cute and fun!
