Take a picture on each of the 365 days this year. Some pictures will illustrate bigger moments and some shots will be routine stuff in your life. It all adds up to paint the full picture of your life right now.
All About You.
All the focus is on your child or other loved one. Include their favorites, their hobbies, their friends, their schoolwork. Snap pictures inside their car and even dresser drawers. Capture them texting, brushing their teeth, and facebooking.
Self-explanatory. A picture of you doing something every day of the year.
The whole family is involved in Project Life and contributes their pictures & journaling to the album. Leave the camera accessible to all. Even if it means your three-year-old is taking pictures of the toilet. What a great way to capture everyone's perspective! You could even set up a schedule so that you take turns for each day or week or month.
Showcase your favorite highlights and photos a month at a time, whether you do this with one layout or more. Not quite as vigorous as the Picture-a-Day concept, yet still captures so much of your life right now. This is also a great way to go back and do last year or any year if you're trying to "catch up" on scrapbooking.
Weekly or Monthly Themes.
Pick a topic to focus on each week or month. For example, one week might be pictures at work, another week might be errands, another might be clothes you wear, and then food you eat, and then technology you love, etc.
All About Me.
Whether you are an adult or a child or teenager, you focus completely on what makes up your life (what you wear, what you eat, what you love, where you go, who you hang out with, where you work, why you do what you do)
Family circle journal.
Combine efforts with your extended family, having each person or family take responsibility for a layout or a handful of layouts. Put it all together in one Project Life album and you have an awesome gift for grandparents!
All-time Favorite Photos.
Pack the album full of your favorite pictures, whether they're ones passed down to you from your grandparents or the snapshot you just took this week.
Home Sweet Home.
Focus on every little detail of the place you call home, inside and out.
Your Project Life album can be a melting pot for several different approaches mentioned in this section. Don't be afraid to mix it up! When it's all said and done, it's still a defining snapshot of your life.
Capture one of the most miraculous chapters of your life. The doctor appointments, nesting, anxiety, shopping, aches and pains. Document it all along the way.
Baby's First Year.
Document that year with the most growth in a human life. Capture your baby's highlights and milestones as well as the routine feedings, diaper changes, and outings.
