Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



inspiration from our creative team – september 2015

With September drawing to a close, the fall months (here in the U.S.) and holiday season are swiftly approaching! This is truly my favorite time of the year – perhaps because my birthday is on Christmas – and it’s filled with fun moments, celebrations, togetherness, and memories to be made. It can also be a time that overwhelms those who want to document the everyday because our calendars tend to be more full which can take away from the extra time we want to spend documenting. The answer to the dilemma? Project Life®, of course! Keeping things simple with your Project Life pages can make getting your photos and stories into albums a breeze … even with less “extra” time in your daily schedule.

Our creative team continues to move forward in their documenting – even while some are enjoying extensive travel, some are working full time, some are in school, some are battling chronic illness, and several of our team members have new babies … two more this month, in fact! Regardless of what stage of life you’re in or what roles you’re filling in any given day, you can do this! Find what works for you with your scrapbooking and remember to enjoy the process – not only will you love looking back at your completed pages and albums, but it will remind you of the goodness that fills your life and/or how the struggles you’ve experienced have made you stronger.

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 September 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.

Here’s to being inspired by the many memories ahead or those from years past as you Cultivate a Good Life and Record It.

Wedding gift mini-album project created by Rianne Alonte, featuring the Southern Weddings Edition (printed from digital files), Trinkets Value Kit, and XOXO Themed cards (retired). All pages are 6×8 Photo Pocket Pages – Design 3. Rianne shares her inspiration for the project:

My friend once told me that she wanted to make a scrapbook about her and her boyfriend (now husband), but she has no time to do it. Five days before the wedding, I had a lightbulb moment– why not help her start it? I used a 6×8 album and packs of Design 3 photo pocket pages. I printed the digital Southern Wedding prompt cards and paired them with the Trinkets and XOXO cards. I left notes on what photos to add in the 4×6 pockets.  All she has to do is print the 4×6 photos and write on the cards. (This couple never posted their photos on social media, by the way, so I wasn’t able to print them.) She can rearrange, change the designs, insert more photo pocket pages for an event if she wishes to. I’m pretty positive that she will like this system and will easily learn how to do it. I’m hoping to have another Project Lifer in my circle!

  1. It’s time for us to grow up, as a result of we have
    now been part of the issue: We have helped to offer start to self-righteous web pages that assume they
    should be watched and awarded only for the time we invested in crafting them.

  2. In the late 1990’s, future-minded businesses would buy theircom’s,
    buy costly hosting plans, and rent an online
    grasp” in order to have The Net Page, the one that may make them seen to
    the rest of the Web. They are so environment friendly in making a enterprise seen that they are rendering primary internet pages useless.
    The truth is, we’d like fewer net pages, not more of
