Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



inspiration from our creative team – july 2015

Summer here in Arizona seems to be flying by! Having spent a few weeks traveling to spend time with family this past month, we’ve been soaking up our “free” time, taking lots of photos, eating way too many ice cream cones, and sleeping a little later than normal. Most of that will end here in a few weeks when my kids head back to school, but for now, we’re thrilled to have a few less commitments and a few more hours together. I hope you’re enjoying much of the same – photo overload, time to create memories, time to document, and time to remember.

Each member of our creative team is “knee deep” in life – as most of us are – but they are committed to documenting because they are passionate about telling their stories. You’ll see that they are recording everything from travels and growing babies to relationships and holidays and, of course, the everyday moments. You’ll even see peeks of these ladies documenting themselves … which can be easy to “avoid” and, yet, is such a part of the overall story because it’s YOUR story, too! I challenge you to hand the camera over to someone else this month, get in the frame, and then record something about YOU – I promise you’ll feel awesome about it … even if it’s a little out of your comfort zone *wink*.

The pages you’ll see in this post are from the girls on our team using our physical products. You can also find digital inspiration for July 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 PagesThat’s it. All products used in the pages below include direct links under the images for your convenience so you can see more.

Enjoy the inspiration this month! Then get out there and become a part of the story rather than being the one just documenting the story.
