project life for heritage photos
When it comes to memory-keeping and doing something with our photos, most of us think about the hundreds or thousands of recent digital images from our life. But what about those heritage pictures that so many of us are fortunate to have inherited? When it comes to preserving those photos, I am definitely a fan of slipping those precious photos into pockets as opposed to using glues or tapes that permanently adhere them to traditional scrapbook pages.
I am often asked about a heritage edition of Project Life. Yes, we’re working on that. Yes, it will be awesome. No, I am not able to tell you the timing on that just yet. In the meantime, I do think that getting your heritage photos into a Project Life album is most definitely a wonderful idea and you definitely have some options – with or without an official Heritage Edition. One option is that you use only the Photo Pocket Pages and nothing decorative whatsoever. That’s about as classic and timeless as it gets. Another option is that you choose a Project Life Edition that best suits the photos you’re working with.
The Olive Edition of Project Life, designed by the one and only Heather Bailey, is delightfully beautiful and while many see how it’s perfect for their photos of various themes, we were thrilled to get the following note from Catherine Davis the other day. (sharing the following with her permission of course)
Here’s what I did with the Olive Kit. I LOVE THIS. I got the kit yesterday and thought that the prints in the kit reminded me of 1940’s dresses. Then a light bulb went off. I have a bunch of photos from my Mom’s side of the family that have sat in a memory box for years. (Most of these are just color photocopies that I took pictures of for this project.) I focused a spread on my sweet grandmother and I’m just bananas over having these few memories in one place. Bananas!! The only embellishments I used were two little buttons because she loved to sew. Sniff!
Thank you YET AGAIN for all of the inspiration!
I’m getting requests from aunts, uncles and more family for copies of these spreads so I think I’m onto something. Maybe I should just say, “the Olive Kit is on sale Thursday, folks!”
Have a great weekend,
