February || 2012 Project Life Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2012 Project Life Blog Hop! Inspired by Becky Higgins.

Project Life is a back-to-basics approach to memory-keeping. No one’s life is perfect but everyone has a story and every family has a collection of memories. Putting pictures + stories together in Project Life makes us more aware of our blessings and encourages us to cultivate a good life.

The fitness of [Fitness, Health and Happiness] is running and strength training. The health is nutrition and taking care of myself and my family. The happiness is photography and Project Life!

Thoughts:

Planning is key. Marcy Penner generously shared her PL Planner printables. There is a planner for every Becky Higgins pocket page design, they work perfectly and Marcy saved me the time of having to create them myself.

I keep the planners in a binder and throughout the week I make notes, jot details and plan the layout. Huge time saver!

I keep the blank templates in the back of the same binder.

More thoughts:

  • I love cutting up the pocket pages for variety and using a variety of photo sizes.
  • A favorite digital product, Cathy Zielske’s photo and journaling templates.
  • Another favorite digital product, Ali Edwards’ word art.
  • A favorite tool, Epson’s Picture Mate Charm Photo Printer.
  • Another favorite tool, We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper.
  • Lately, I’ve been using a lot of interactive pull-outs for journaling, cards, etc.
  • Love the mini canvas photo collages!
  • I liked including A Day In the Life. I’m sure I’ll do it again a few times throughout the year.
  • For the most part I have the whole process down to a routine. Making it sustainable for the year.

    If you have any suggestions, please share.
    With thanks!
