Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



mini album inspiration: favorite quotes

Creative Team member Rebecca Cooper has a love for quotes and a passion for keeping things simple. She chose our Midnight Mini Album (20% off thru April 5) and created a beautiful quote book filled with some of her favorites that she has collected over the years.  By using a mix of Project Life cards and printed cards that she created, she’s compiling an album that will continue grow for years to come!


In Rebecca’s own words:

I’m an avid quote collector and a few years ago I had high hopes of finally getting my collection organized into one place. I had quotes everywhere –  jotted down on scrap pieces of paper, recorded in my day planner + pinned on Pinterest! Now thanks to the Project Life mini albums I’m happy to say all my quotes will finally have a home!

I began creating some simple printables of my favorite quotes back in 2011 imagining that I’d print them out + put them all into a photo album someday. I never did find the perfect album + the project got put on the back burner until  I saw the new Project Life mini albums and I just knew they’d be perfect for my little album of quotes.

You can take a peek at the page spreads I have in my favorite quotes album so far. There’s no theme to the quotes on each pages, it’s an eclectic mix of topics + colors. I plan to use a mixture of my printable quotes + leftover project life cards that don’t find a home in my other albums. I realize now that creating printables for ALL of my favorite quotes wasn’t a realistic plan but writing or printing them out quickly on project life cards that are ready to place directly into this fun little album has been quick, easy + fun!

NOTE: The Project Life cards you see journaled on in the album so far are from the Baby Edition.

For now I’ll be playing catchup + adding quotes I already have collected but I’m really excited that as soon as I find a new quote I’ll have a place to put it! Jotting down quotes on Project Life cards and adding them directly to my album – skipping the middle step of recording it on a scrap piece of paper and promptly losing it – is going to be so great! I will be keeping things as quick + simple as possible when updating this album. I’m not worrying about a color scheme, I’m not worrying about design – its all about recording my favorite quotes and getting them all in one spot where I can easily find them and where others can read and be inspired!

    Love this! One of the quotes reminding me of a greeting card. I bet this would be a great way to record those sweet thoughts of cards too.

  2. OH absolutely doing this! I had the idea of printing out all the fabulous quotes I have saved from fb over the years… I was going to frame them in 6×4 frames and make an entire wall into a gallery… yeah, probably will never happen… but THIS… THIS I can do! ;)

    This is really nice, what a great idea.

    Your mini-album proddings have finally convinced me to complete my wedding album—it’s only been 7 years, ha! I hope I can send you some photos when I’m done. :)

    Wow! What a GREAT idea! I also have quotes that I like all over the place…. random notebooks, scraps of paper, a Pinterest board. I definitely am going to steal this idea! I just ordered some Mini Albums because they are on sale… not knowing exactly what I would use them for. Already found a use for one!

    What an awesome idea to record quotes! This would be such an inspiring little book when you need a little pick-me-up! I think I might keep a stack of journalling cards on hand for it, since I’m terrible at recording the awesome quotes I find!

    I, too, am an avid quote collector. I jot them down in my small notebooks that I keep beside my computer. I have been wanting to compile my quotes for a very long time and recently began wondering how to go about doing it. Thanks for the idea!! I think I’m going to have to order a mini book or two now!!

    Love these – Rebecca! Do you have a favorite site to pull these from?

  9. Malia says:

    This would also work as a great way to document those hilarious and sweet quotes by your kids… :)

  10. I find so many great quotes on Pinterest! You can find my ‘quotes’ pinboard here: http://pinterest.com/rebeccacooper/words/

  13. Hey! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website like yours require a lot
    of work? I’m brand new to blogging however I do write in my diary on
    a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for
    brand new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
