Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



creative team inspiration – december edition

I hate to even say this out loud, but today we will be sharing the last batch of inspiration from our 2013 Creative Team. *sniff* I imagine that many of you have used their work to help you along in your Project Life® journey this past year – whether trying a new way to fill your pocket pages based on a layout they shared, finding a process that “works” for you after seeing one of these ladies share how they make Project Life a part of their daily/weekly/monthly documenting, or taking a photo from a different perspective after seeing photos in their completed layouts. Perhaps you’ve been inspired by them in a hundred other ways. When it comes right down to it, this group of 24 ladies is remarkable … creatively and personally … and it has been an absolute honor + pleasure for me to get to know them and to share their work with you.

It doesn’t end here – while this may be the last “official” post from our 2013 team, they will still be sharing. Make sure you’re following them online and via social media so you can see the continued awesomeness that is sure to come from them. You can find links to where they are sharing on our Meet the Team page.

While we’re only sharing one example from their work here, if someone’s style is right up your alley, just click on the person’s name and it will take you directly to where they are sharing more examples of how they’re using Project Life as a memory-keeping system.

We love how each member of our team has her own style in the way that she photographs, journals, and brings everything together to tell a story. Remember, no matter how you choose to record your memories, it’s all good. The idea here is not to overwhelm you with all of the inspiration and beautiful samples here  – we simply want to inspire + encourage you in your own memory-keeping efforts.

While several of our Creative Team members use various products to embellish, please keep in mind that you really can create an entire scrapbook with the 3 core Project Life components and nothing else. Album + Project Life Core Kit + Big Pack of Photo Pocket Pages. That’s it. We are getting close to launching our own shopping cart to provide you with another place that you can find the Project Life products you are looking for – YAY!

We’re also on the verge of announcing our 2014 Creative Team … another group of amazing talent who are just dying to share their inspiration + ideas with you throughout the new year! That announcement is coming soon.

Enjoy this last dose of 2013 Creative Team sharing – I hope you’ve loved being inspired by these ladies as much as I have this year!

    Hi Becky, I have a Project Life dilemma. Two years ago I did a year of PL traditionally with paper, plastic dividers and an album. I love it but it is too big and takes up too much room on the shelf for me to do every year, so this past year I did PL digitally. I love the way it looks and the ease of doing it…… but I REALLY miss having my own handwriting on the 3X4 cards. Do you have an idea for how I can get both: a digital solution that lets me use my handwriting to journal? Have you seen it work for anyone? Thanks!

    And thanks for the great job you did on CreativeLIVE. It was a wonderful review of everything I love about scrapbooking, and a whole lot more!

      I’m not Becky, but I have an idea, Kelly. Have your handwriting made into a font. Various places will do this for you. See my Week 47 above (the one using the Cherry Edition). I’ve used my handwriting (through a font) on both of my digital pages. Hope this helps!

    • I’m a digital PLfer – you could journal your cards and then take a photograph in good light with a steady hand. I also made my own hand-drawn word .png files to add to my pages – not as beautifully rendered and AEs of course, but still my own handwriting :) I’ve linked to a post with a little more about that. Hope that helps!

    • Jo says:

      You could also write some journaling and scan it to add to your pages. Also, I think you can use one of those graphics tablets to add hand written elements too – they are not terribly expensive at the low end. Wacom makes them for under $100.

    How I love these monthly columns! How I’m going to miss being a part of them and the 2013 PL Creative Team! But I’m so excited about seeing all new inspiration each month next year. I can’t wait to meet the 2014 team. Thanks, Becky and Kari, for everything you do! You’re the best! XO!

    Is the Merry and Bright physical kit available somewhere? I can’t find it online.

  7. Vicki says:

    I enjoyed looking at the these layouts, but can a designer please post something that doesn’t involve children?!?!?! I don’t have children and get tired of looking at layouts that involve children especially holiday-ish stuff.
