Things I love: Project Life

Many many many years ago I was all about scrapbooking. Okay, it probably was only five or so  years ago, but it feels like a long time. Eventually I found it was a hobby that took up too much time, too much money, and too much space. (The storage of supplies, not the albums themselves.) I also wasn't taking as many pictures, I wasn't happy with the way I looked in pictures so I stopped documenting my life that way. (This is something I'm working on!)

Somewhat recently I discovered pocket scrapbooking, more specifically Project Life by Becky Higgins. It is so easy to complete pages this way. I don't do Project Life in the traditional one-page per week style (yet) that many people choose to do, but I am using it to document the big and not-so-big events in our lives.

The pocket pages come in a range of designs, and there are dozens of core kits or smaller card sets you can purchase to use as accents. I personally use a combination of the official Project Life cards and patterned card stock or scrapbook paper. I've also used some scrapbooking stickers and embellishments on my pages. Now that I have a Cricut I'm really excited to see what I can do.

Here are a few of the pages from my 2016 album:
I know, the pictures are terrible! I just took them quickly with my phone. 

Do you do any scrapbooking? Have you tried Project Life or pocket scrapbooking?


  1. You know I scrapbook! I haven't gotten into any of the Project life/pocket scrapbooking though. I find I'm not drawn to it because I love doing the 12 by 12 pages. I often don't even like doing 8x8 pages haha Your pages look great! Again, I think you should come to Crop and Create :)

  2. I did Project Life a few years ago and it was so much fun! It's so fun to look back on that album!
