Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.

Feb

21st

before you had kids, you had a story

As documenters, we have a myriad of stories that we are recording in albums so our families and generations to come will know and understand who we are, what we love, why our various relationships are important, and how we lived our lives day-to-day. One story that can be easy to overlook is our personal story – the one that was lived before we became adults, spouses, and/or parents. And yet this story is an integral part of how we became who we are today.

We are delighted to have Jennifer Wilson sharing her thoughts + ideas on this very topic with us. We also have an opportunity for you to win a seat in a new class that she will teaching at Big Picture Classes beginning next week! Take it away, Jennifer ….

See that photo at the top? It all started there.

A few years ago my mom had copies made of photos that had been framed. They were horribly faded and I was sad to see images I treasured destroyed by time.

This particular photo was not so much about me but that person sitting next to me (my grandma) and the big yellow glider that now sits on my own porch.

It held so many memories of growing up in southwest Michigan and, until I was 9, living just one town away from my grandparents. I was at their house almost every weekend, and I was a favorite helper in the kitchen and in the garden.

Last year I visited my parents and started digging through photo albums from my growing up years. I turned the page in one album and was stunned. There was the original photo of me in the glider, mostly unaltered after 30+ years.

I knew this image had to be scrapbooked.

Since my daughter’s birth, I had wanted to scrapbook my life before her. I just didn’t know how I could pull it off. My photos (thousands of them) were at my parents’ house and creating an album with dozens of 12×12 layouts felt intimidating.

But I wanted to make this happen, for my daughter and for me. Opening up the albums of my childhood and finding this special photo offered just the momentum I needed to get started.

I figured out that if I scanned a small selection of images that really stood out to me, it would all be doable. And most importantly, I realized that if I used Project Life® products, I could create a meaningful album in a matter of weeks.

In my album I tell dozens of stories that span more than three decades of my life, from birth to adulthood. I used the classic Design A page protectors for most of those stories, using just my photos and journaling cards from the Cut & Paste mini kit.

I included a few 6×12 images and layouts to dress it up, but the heart of this album are those pockets. One by one, I shared pieces of my story that were previously undocumented. I got the breadth of my first thirty-one years down so that when my daughter asks about before, I have a place to start.

I completed this project not only with a richer legacy but also with knowledge of how to scrapbook full decades or more with Project Life. Here are a few key takeaways:

Focus & Prioritize – When you’re scrapbooking large time frames, you can’t possibly cover everything. Concentrate on capturing the memories that matter most and don’t get bogged down in what’s being excluded. You can always do more later.

Use Dividers – Try to compartmentalize your life by categories or distinct periods to make storytelling flow easier and group like-stories together. With this, the Project Life dividers are perfect for visually breaking up the album.

Keep it Simple – I would still be working on this project if I did more than write on the journaling cards. This project reminded me that Becky creates beautiful products that don’t need anything besides your own handwriting.

There’s one more thing I’d like you to know. This passion project formed the basis of a new workshop I’m teaching at Big Picture Classes. Together we’ll use Project Life products to tell your birth-to-adulthood story simply and easily. Check out the trailer video in the link below.

    Hi, I’m Heidi from Tacoma, Washington. I think this is such a great idea and have been wanting to do this for myself for quite some time. I have many fond childhood memories that I’ve been wanting to record. My mother also has hundreds of pictures of me and my family as we were growing up and I’ve been scanning a few, but haven’t gone much further than that. I have always had a love for pictures and photography. I’m very passionate about my hobby and Project Life has helped me record every bit of my family’s lives since 2009. I couldn’t do it without Becky and her staff for all the wonderful inspiration!

    Love the approach. I have using PL approach to document 2008-2013. I do pick some photos to create traditional layouts but not the 200 photos a month I use to take. My next goal is to do a PL about me of myself and my daughters (20 and 23 yo) and our dog, who with 5 years got a couple of albums worth of photos… TFS your album!

I’ve been working on an 8×8 album of “the simple version” of my life story (birth, parents, grandparents, first years, etc.) so my kids will know some basic things about my history. But I love this approach of little telling snippets about what I was like, am like, prefer, stories, etc. Great idea, Jennifer!

    What a great idea for a class. I am only 25 and dont have children of my own yet, but it is on my to list for this year to sit down with my mum and make a PL album of my childhood – with her journaling and handwriting throughout. Mum isn’t really the “scrapbooking” or “journaling” type, but I know together we can make this happen. She’s done well – all our photos are in albums with a little note about who is in the photo and when it was, and she has kept a great deal of memorabilia, she just doesn’t realise it. I can’t wait :)

    At the same time, I plan to do some heritage type pages and send off questionaires to my aunts, uncles, grandmothers etc to try and document their stories. Looking forward to this class! :)

    I saw this post featured on Becky’s IG and thought nothing of it. I’ve scrapped for years (before I had children) and did pages of my childhood in previous books, here and there. I am so glad I came to the blog to read this post. Tears filled my eyes as I read it. This truly inspired me to get more photos done and JOURNALING to go with it from my childhood. And all in one place!! Something I know my children would treasure looking at. Thank You so much Jennifer for this post. <3

    Hi my name is Paula I live in Edmonton Alberta Canada… this story touches my heart… my mom passed away almost 5 years ago of breast cancer at the age of 59. My sister took everything and won’t give me back any of my photos or baby book… I have very few pictures of me or my mom… I am committed to giving all 4 of my kids “their story” and I love this idea to get it done as I take 100’s of pictures… and it can be overwhelming as I used to make the “fancy paper pieced pages” x 4 I was never getting anywhere.. working FT 6 days a week doesn’t leave a lot of time, and with my youngest turning 5… I am already losing details ! would love to win thank you :)

    What a great idea. I, too, have pictures in boxes that used to be at my parent’s house. Where to start? I’ll have to rely on my own memories as we lost my Dad ten years ago, and Mom has advanced Alzheimers. As time goes on, I feel it is so important to record our own story for our kids. It’s hard for them to imagine that their 58-yr-old Mom was in high school track in the 70s, or that their grandparents looked like movie stars in the 50s black & white 3×3 pictures. But pictures are worth MORE than a thousand words. Thank you – your blog has made me realize that it’s ok to not include everything, that I’m not the only one who feels overwhelmed with older pictures, and that just getting started with whatever you have is what’s important.

    Orange Guard is not only incredibly safe and effective,
    but it will leave your houuse smelling like the amazing fruit that
    it is made from, oranges. Usually it is not as juicy as other oranges, but has ann intense
    flavor. Inspired by our discovery of the History Center we continued
    our learning experiences at the Well’s Built Museum of African American History and
    Culture, followed up by a relaxing walk around Lake Eola, to take
    in a beautiful sunset.
