inspiration from our creative team – august 2015
Our creative team has been working overtime on a variety of projects to inspire you and help get your creative juices flowing! I simply love the way that these ladies have showcased our products in a myriad of ways this month. Some love to mix + match a wide variety of kits into their work while others choose to keep things simple by sticking to one or two kits and the same page layout design. And a few of them even decided to go “outside the box” this month with mini-album projects or by working ahead on pages that will eventually be filled when a sweet baby arrives. No matter how you choose to use the products you have, one thing is certain – taking the time to document will remind you of just how blessed you are!
The pages + projects you’ll see in this post are from the girls on our team using our physical products. You can also find digital inspiration for August from those on our team using our digital products and the Project Life® App to document. No matter which products you choose, the idea behind Project Life is the same – to help you simplify the process of getting your stories into albums! Remember that the 3 core Project Life components and nothing else are really all you need to get started. Album + Project Life Core Kit + Big Pack of Photo Pocket Pages. That’s it. All products used in the pages below include direct links under the images for your convenience so you can see more.
Regardless of what you’re documenting this month, we hope you know how awesome you are for cultivating a good life and recording it!

Gratitude mini-album project created by Rianne Alonte, featuring the Becky’s Quotes Themed Cards, Jade Edition Core Kit (retired), Personal Yearbook Mini Kit (digital exclusive), Fine & Dandy Core Kit, Hashtag Themed Cards, Baby Girl Edition Core Kit, Baby Boy Edition Core Kit, Travel Themed Cards, Road Trip Themed Cards, Midnight Edition Core Kit, and Inspire Edition Core Kit. All pages are 6×8 Photo Pocket Pages – Design 3. Rianne shares her process:
On each page, I will write about something I am grateful for and accompany it with a photo. I will use the Design 3 sleeves for all pages and follow this format I saw on the packaging of your latest themed/specialty card sets: (1) 3×4 filler card on the upper left pocket, (1) 3×4 journaling card on the upper right pocket and then a 4×6 photo at the bottom. This is so fun, easy, and quick to make!!
