Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



inspiration from our creative team – june

 featured layout by Annette Spaniel using the Plus One Mini Kit and 3×4 Grid Cards.

With summer upon many of us here in the U.S., it is a season of lazy days, extra travel, more time together with our children, and lots to memories being made. Family vacations, reunions, and celebrations are cherished times where lots of photos are taken, stories are shared, and these events are filled with the stuff that reminds us why documenting our lives is so important … and fun! Whether you choose a mini album that is specific to one (or more) summer adventures or you add your summer photos into your everyday album, our products are designed to make it simple for you to get your photos into albums quickly + easily.

Our creative team does a remarkable job of documenting their lives and we love to inspire you with their pages. Each month we share one example from each of our creative team members here, but if you’re looking for more, most of them are also sharing on either a personal blog, Instagram, or other social avenues – just click on the person’s name below their 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.

We hope you love what they’re sharing this month as much as we do!

    I love the way some large photos are cut to fit in several pockets!

    I love all the ideas! My question is for the ladies who used bigger pictures to cover more then one spot. The corners were only rounded on the overall picture. How do you then place pictures/cards on the back for your next page? I hope my question makes sense. Layouts done by Autumn and Donya are 2 I am referring to.

    What I like the most about PL and these pages is the “uniqueness” of each person. And the stories these pages tell are wonderful. I’m in my third PL year and I wouldn’t scrap any other way. When I look back just 2 years ago, I get more enjoyment then all my other scrapbooks from even earlier years, because I’m scrapping my everyday life.

    Thanks for sharing your ideas…I know I’ll be incorporating them into my pages.

    What is the best way dr printing large pics? Like the 12x12s that are being cut up?

    where can you find pictures of the card designs? i can’t judge whether to invest in the kit by seeing just a few cards from the top of the packaging.

  6. Love *all* of the inspiration. I look forward to it every month. :)

    Hi guys, wasn’t sure where to leave a question but I’m wondering how everyone gets their photos to fit the square pocket protectors? I always try cutting them to size myself but it never quite fits right. I have a punch for the 3×4 cards and was wondering if there’s an equivalent for the 4×4’s? Thanks!

      Thank you! I just purchased a big selection of stuff to start out scrapbooking. I have always tried to chronicle the kids’ in words, because I am more of a poet than a crafty person. My kids are wicked creative, but I tend to be all thumbs. I have drooled over scrapbook pages, but know that I don’t have time to dedicate to put all that work into a page with only one or two photos on it. Those pages are astounding, but I end up taking hundreds of pictures of all the crazy things my kids want to do. How would I ever? And then, I couldn’t even keep up with blogging. This week, my sons asked me to scrapbook this summer. They are 6 and 10, and truly requested it. They want to look over pages with me and smile and remember. So, I looked up and down the aisles feeling incredibly overwhelmed and intimidated – until I spotted your collections. I have hope now that I can actually do this. I am venturing into it, and love all the inspiration here on your blog. Oh – I’m off to create a page. Wish me luck!
