Pocket Scrapbooking with Project Life

Cultivate a good life and record it.



inspiration from our physical creative team – august 2018

Summer came + went in a hurry here and my kids have been back in school for over three weeks now! While it’s always sad to say goodbye to vacations and sunburns, late nights and sleeping in, there’s something so wonderful about the routine that comes with a new school year. For me, it’s a great time to reevaluate things, shift focus where needed, and catch up on things that often go by the wayside during the summer months … like scrapbooking. Can you relate? I hope that as seasons and schedules change, you can find time to enjoy reliving and documenting the memories you recently made – or those from times long since past.

Our Creative Team members are taking an active role in sharing the stories of the everyday with those they love. They are each doing it in a way that works for them, but they are doing it! The pages you’ll see in this post are from the girls on our team using our physical products.

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.

Feel free to get inspired by our team’s pages this month and hopefully feel like you, too, can get your stories recorded!

    I struggle with something and maybe some can help the two facing layouts look great but then I turn the page and sometimes my pictures don’t work in the pockets on the previous page does this make sense? I’m using the physical cards and pages not the digital. I’m used to the traditional scrapbook style any help would be great. I’ve tried to find where I can see a series of pages any suggestions?

      I used to be frustrated by this same thing! If I used vertical pictures on one page, then flipped the page for the next layout, I often would not have vertical pictures to use in those slots. I’ve simplified the process by making a 4×6 horizontal print with 2 vertical pictures, then printing. Now I generally always use the Layout A pages. I have spaces for my 4×6 horizontal prints as well as my 3×4 vertical pictures (that I cut from my side by side 4×6). I do this in photoshop, but would love a template or app (for computer) to make this process easier. Hope this helps!

      I’ve heard of people using a tape runner to glue two different pocket pages back to back when they have that problem. I haven’t tried it, so I can’t tell you how it holds up.
