Project Life 2016

Back to blogging, this time about a favorite ongoing project that has turned from a hobby into a passion. I had blogged about Project Life in 2013 (that was way long back!!) and as I step into my fourth year of memory keeping through Project Life, I am hoping to share my work on a regular basis here on the blog.

Project Life is a memory keeping system created by BeckyHiggins to capture photos and document everyday life. Some create weekly pages or themed spreads but I do monthly spreads where I combine my photos and journals for a month and document them across several page layouts.

I am going with my usual 12x12 album format this year and improvising upon my process to get the spreads done easy and quick. My stories are the crux of my album and I plan to journal more in combination with my photos. 

Being a Pocket Your Year Creative Team Member has sparked my interest even more and I love that it motivates me to get my pages done. I share my work exclusively to the Pocket Your Year workshop by Megan Anderson  which provides a guided class to the process and tips for pocket scrapbooking. Be sure to checkout their links for more information.

I hope to blog my work here on a monthly basis sharing peeks into my spreads for the month. This helps me stay accountable and current with my PL goals and also keeps my blog alive:) 

For the title page, I used photos of the kids and the firework from Diwali 2015 while the bottom left photo was from our Mexico trip last year. The filler cards are mainly from my Studio Calico Documenter kit and Ali Edwards Story Kits. I cut the phrases from a 4x6 card from the Black&White story kit and adhered them to the firework photo. All my embellishments come from my Studio Calico Documenter kit and Ali Edwards Story Kit

I am so happy to have finished pocketing the photos for the month of Jan and have begun my Feb edits. There were exciting events the whole month, with revamping the home, my Bro and Sil's visit, planning Megha's birthday party, partying with my Minions, not to forget the winter blues apart from everyday normal life!

It is a delight to capture and record the everyday real life and to learn to appreciate the happiness life showers upon us. I love stamping on photos and my journal cards and Ali Edwards story kit stamps are perfect with their bold words and lovely phrases.

Its always fun creating color co-ordinated spreads and I am so totally loving the yellow/blue color combo here. The Minion photo is a tag from Megha's Tshirt that I had saved to include in the album:)

  Thank you for staying this far and hope you enjoyed looking into my scrapbooking.
