Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



end of school year gift idea for coaches + teachers

A couple Project Life customers shared with us how they’re saying THANK YOU to special coaches + teachers in their life, now that the school year is wrapping up for so many.


Terri in Texas created this End of Season Mini Album and had this to say:

I wanted to share with you the books I made as a thank you for my daughter’s soccer coaches. The team is going to present them to their coaches tonight at their banquet. I used a mini album and photos I took during the season. Each player as well as parents wrote a short thank you note to each of the coaches (there are 2) on blank grid cards. I love the way they turned out and I think the coaches are going to love them! I thought I would share with you another idea for using the mini album. I love your products!

Sarah in Florida made this End of School Year Mini Album and shared this with us:

Just wanted to share a project I did with your mini albums. I made it for my son’s first grade teacher. I had each kiddo draw a picture on a 4×6, and I also had them write a thank you on a folded 4×6 that I put behind their name. The rest of the book was filled with photos I had taken throughout the year. The kids loved looking through it and the teacher loved receiving it.

    Love this, but how did you get the kids to do it without the teacher knowing?

      We sent home an envelope home in the “Friday” folder. Each envelope had a 4×6 grid card and 3×4 grid card… we also sent directions in the envelope to write or draw on the cards, and also include a picture of the child.

      The teachers were instructed to put the envelopes they got back into a manila envelope. They could peek, but even if they do it won’t be as cute as the finished album. I’m also including pictures of the school, field trips, and class parties.

  10. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything. However think about
    if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could definitely be one of the very
    best in its field. Good blog!
