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!
