Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



inspiration from our creative team – august

Summer came + went in a hurry here, and my kids have been back in school for two weeks now! While it’s always sad to say goodbye to vacations and sunburns, late nights and sleeping in, there’s something so wonderful about the routine that comes with a new school year. It feels a lot like New Year’s Day with a clean slate and loads of possibilities. For me, it’s a great time to reevaluate things, shift focus where needed, and catch up on things that often go by the wayside during the summer months … like scrapbooking. Can you relate? I hope that as seasons and schedules change, you can find time to enjoy reliving and documenting the memories you recently made – or those from times long since past.

Our creative team continues to record their memories – some staying right on top of the “here and now” and others creating pages and albums from past months, years, and events. We love to share their pages with you each month and hope that it continues to inspire you in our journey to “Cultivate a Good Life and Record It.”

We include one example from each of our creative team members here in this post, but if you’re looking for more details, inspiration, and ideas, most of them are also sharing on either a personal blog, Instagram, or other social avenues – just click on the person’s name below the layout and it will take you directly to where she is sharing more examples of how she’s using Project Life® as a memory-keeping system. You can also visit their personal profile pages (on our Meet the Team page) for links to all of the places you can find their work.

Remember 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 PagesThat’s it. You can find links directly below their layouts to most of the products they’ve used in our shop.

Enjoy these bits of inspiration from our team to you!
