You guys, I’m excited to share the scrapbook I’ve been working on with my mom! For Christmas this year, I printed off all of my favorite photos of Elliot from age 1-2. I packaged them up with some new goodies from Project Life so my mom and I could work on a scrapbook together. Since we live a few states away, it was a fun project to do while we were together over the holidays.
It’s been a few years, but I first discovered Project Life a few years ago, when I tried out their Clementine Edition (full review posted here). As you can see, this kit comes with color-coordinated cards that you can simply slip inside the special photo dividers to accompany your pictures and help tell a story.
In addition to the Core Kits like that one (the Clementine is no longer in print… but you can shop for gobs of new Core Kits at Project Life), I tried out four new things I’m really excited about. If you are a beginner to scrapbooking, I can’t recommend these enough to go with your Project Life album and variety pack of photo pages. (affiliate link)
- These zoo themed cards are so sweet and you get a lot of bang for your buck!
- 6″ x 6″ boy paper pad for making your own accents or putting together a 6″x”6 mini album
- Bright overlays (and fun frames!) for photos and cards will make your photos pop off the page
- Mini kits! This Childhood mini kit comes with all of the super-inspiring phrases you’d expect from a Core Kit, but at a fraction of the cost. This is a great way to dip your feet in the water with Project Life.
The cards I had left from my previous project life kit pair really nicely with this quote from the Childhook mini kit! We cut our own solid scrapbook paper for some of the slots to complement the colors in the photos.
If you think you are not creative enough to scrapbook, Project Life makes it really easy to just dive right in. If you have your own stickers and scrapbook extras, great! If not, you can get so much mileage out of a simple Core Kit or Mini Kit.
Since we are getting ready for Valentine’s Day, I had fun looking at this V-day layout with memories from last year at this time. Kids grow up so fast! The “So Cheeky” pictured is an example of a Project Life overlay layered on top of a journaling card.
Elliot’s first birthday cake! How can I forget? Thanks for Project Life for making it easy for a busy mom to plan a scrapbook project. I’m so thankful I got to share this experience of putting together these memories with my mom!
