Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



inspiration from our creative team – november 2015

This past week I had the opportunity to spend time with family visiting for the Thanksgiving holiday and was reminded of a few things:

1) Family is where it’s at.

2) There is no such thing as too much good food.

3) Memories are made when we spend time with others – regardless of the activity.

4) Photos have a magic ability to transport us back in time and flood our minds with details of moments captured – whether the photos are hours or years old.

Taking all of that into consideration, why wouldn’t we want to “bottle up” the goodness of these memories into albums that anyone + everyone can enjoy? It doesn’t have to be complicated to get it done … simply print your favorite photos and slip them into pockets alongside journaling cards where you can jot down your thoughts, stories, details, and more. You can see in the pages that our Creative Team members shared this month that simple pages make a huge impact. Every layout documents memorable times whether they are big events, daily bits of life, or annual traditions. Taking time to record these memories is a wonderful reminder of the abundance of blessings that our lives are filled with.

The pages + projects you’ll see in this post are from the girls on our team using our physical products. You can also find digital inspiration for November from those on our team using our digital products and the Project Life® App to document. No matter which products you choose, the idea behind Project Life is the same – to help you simplify the process of getting your stories into albums! Remember that the 3 core Project Life components and nothing else are really all you need to get started. Album + Project Life Core Kit + Big Pack of Photo Pocket PagesThat’s it. All products used in the pages below include direct links under the images for your convenience so you can see more.

Sit back and enjoy the monthly dose of inspiration from our remarkable Creative Team!
