Project Life Pages 7-8

Here are pages 7 and 8 of my Project Life 2012 book (based on Becky Higgins’ Project Life scrapbooking concept.) The left side is a digital scrapbook page I printed out on my Epson R1800 using Epson PremierArt 12×12-inch scrapbook photo paper. The right side uses one of Becky Higgins’ Project Life pocket page protectors. I printed the individual pieces out on my Epson PictureMate using semi-gloss paper.

Here’s the left side:

Here’s the right side. The Hello Life 2012 word art is cut out using the Silhouette Cameo machine. I used the trace feature to cut out the downloaded image. You can see through the blank portions to the next page.

      Thanks, Aino! :) The BH project is really fun – it has breathed new life into my old supplies and kickstarted my enthusiasm again :)

    Quick question for you Sara – can you get the information on the concept separately from the supplies they sell? I’d really love to do this but don’t have the details, and I have plenty of supplies at home!! Glad to see the R1800 is still alive and kicking!!

      Hi Shirley!
      Here’s what Becky H says about Project Life:
      “With this easier-than-ever scrapbooking system, simply pair your photos and journaling with pre-designed title cards and journaling cards. Your photos, these cards, and even your memorabilia slip into the Photo Pocket Pages and that’s it. The result is a stylish masterpiece that represents your life or whatever occasion you choose to record. With Project Life’s beautifully simple format, deciding what supplies to use or how to design layouts becomes obsolete, leaving you more time to experience life.”

      Basically, you just purchase the pocket page protectors and do your own thing in them. A lot of people are making it a weekly recap, but I know myself well enough to know I wouldn’t keep up with that. Mine will be more haphazard – I’ll put photos and “stuff” in as life happens, but I’m not going to pressure myself to get a certain amount done each week/month/day. I love this system because the rest of the family can put things in, too. It’s just an open free-for-all project in my mind.
      I also love the idea of putting memorabilia in the pockets instead of scanning and artistically arranging it on a page. I’m all about making it easy :)

      I didn’t purchase Becky’s starter kits. Lord knows I have enough supplies around here. I’ll just make my own “journaling cards” or fill the spaces with photos. I just bought her pocket page protector multipack and a three-ring 12×12-inch binder.

      As a side note, I also bought some We R Memory Keepers pocket page protectors to mix in with the Becky Higgins ones. They had a few different configurations that I liked.

      Yes, the R1800 is still kicking. I still love that printer. I’m also using the PictureMate for this project. It’s perfect for the little 3×4 inch slots on these pocket protectors because you can print 2-up on the PM and then just cut them in half. It’s all good :)

    LOVE this! Is your digital LO in a page protecor or just 3 punched?

      Thanks so much for your kind words :) The layout is in a 12×12 page protector. I’m mixing full digital layouts with the pocket-page-protector ones for this album.
