Vintage Page Designs: Project Life Week One

January 11, 2013

Project Life Week One

Welcome to Vintage Page Designs.  If you're new here, please consider following this blog or find me on Pinterest, Instagram or Facebook.

I've never considered myself a scrapbooker - I've made perhaps 2 dozen layouts in my daughter's dozen years on this earth.  But I journal most days and take lots of pictures, and over the past couple of years, I've begun to combine the two.  Ever since coming across Project Life, I've been intrigued by it.  I might be crazy, but I decided to give it a try in 2013.

Project Life was created by Becky Higgins and is a simplified approach to scrapbooking.  Each week, you put pictures and journaling cards that document your life into photo pocket pages.  That's it!  No layout to follow, pressure to come up with cute titles or a ton of embellishments.

Also, you don't need a lot of product to get started.  You need a 12" x 12" album and some pocket pages (available in a variety of formats), which can be purchased from Amazon.  You can get pre-designed kits and journaling cards, but they're not necessary. 

I'm sharing with you my first week's pages.  I used a hybrid of traditional and digital scrapbooking elements and most of the photos were taken with my phone.  No fancy photography here! 

I used some digital elements from Studio Calico's Block Party Printable #1.    You can read more about Project Life and find lots of inspiration on their website.  Plus Pinterest has a wealth of eye candy.

Will I be able to create pages every week?  I doubt it, but the first week was fun and rewarding.  I'll do as many as I can and enjoy the process!

Happy weekend!

A great idea! Don't you wish that there were more hours in the day to create and create and create?

Looks great, Ali! I bought the dividded protectors last year but never got around to it. Maybe I'll try the occasional week this year :-)
