With the exception of my title page and monthly divider page, the layouts I've been sharing here on the blog have been those created for Becky's 2015 Project Life Creative Team. Today I'm happy to share some of the pages I have done for my personal album. Remember, I am... Continue reading

So how many of you have changed from the physical version of Project Life over to the digital version for 2015? Me, me, me! My hand is UP! One thing I miss about creating layouts in the traditional way is working on an entire double-page spread at one time. It's... Continue reading

Jen, thank you so much for your comment! I'm so glad you enjoyed the posts! I did weekly for a few years, but the pressure I put on myself to get it done was too much, so I am switching to monthly this year. I hope to have a few spreads to share next week! I do love to manipulate the digital kits! Being able to do so makes things extremely economical, don't ya think? What is a Hobonichi journal? Never heard of it! "Brain dump"...I love that...since I got that out, there is now room in my head for other things!

Boring lives! Your life is far from boring, my friend! I found that PL made me pay more attention to the everyday. As a suggestion, if you find that you don't have many photos for one week, include journaling from current events or take part in Fat Mum Slim's Photo A Day! She gives you a daily photo prompt which help to capture those moments you may forget about!

I do have a ton of photos from Europe that I can't wait to put into pockets!

It's funny, I couldn't change those pages if I wanted to! We didn't have digital cameras back then. It would be such a pain to go through all of those negatives if I ever wanted to put those photos into Project Life albums! Thanks for the comment!

Oh my gosh! The stencils! I had a ton of lettering stencils and would hand cut all of my lettering! Thank God for the Silhouette Cameo now!

Oh my goodness Helen! You remember those layouts! Those magazines were the only two I kept. I got rid of the rest! So many of them piling up were starting to become a fire hazard!

Too funny Rita! I did an album for a trip to Disney World back in the 90s. OMG, the details I put into that album! I even took a picture of the silhouette of the Tree of Life at Animal Kingdom on the garbage cans to transfer to card stock. I then cut it all out with an X-acto knife. The time I spent on that! UGH! I was crazy! Have fun purging!

Thanks Christine! Like I mentioned in the post, all that stuff was preventing me from creating! Part two is a long post, but I share a lot of ideas of what I did to get my scrapbooking mojo back!

I'm loving the digital! Are you finding that your digital collection is as bad as your physical one?

I know it's overwhelming! I know when I started with Project Life, I couldn't care less about my collection of supplies anymore! It felt good to have a fresh start! Good luck in paring it all down!

As the paper turns...too funny...as the paper turns into so many piles that your husband wants to take a bulldozer to it! :)

Glad you liked it Emelyn! Part two is long, but I think it has some good stuff there!

Hi Christie! Thanks for the comment! I hope you will read Part Two! There are some suggestions there that will help you to get back on track! I totally understand that it can be easy to collect digital project just as it is the physical stuff! I try to keep it to the basics: digital versions of flair, wood veneer, enamel dots and generic, everyday use stamps. I don't buy big digital collections!

I have been wanting to write this post for quite some time now. The subject has been on my mind for at least a year. And whether you are fairly new to the scrapbooking world or have been documenting your photos and stories for 20+ years like I have, I... Continue reading

Hey friends! Earlier this week I blogged about my plans for Project Life in 2015. You can read that here if you missed it. In the post I mentioned that I am altering my digital Project Life templates with rounded corners and making them square. I'm really not changing the... Continue reading

Awww...thanks Donna! You're to kind! Last time I did the class I think I hurried through things. This time I am really taking it slow and not putting pressure on myself to work on the prompts right away. I want to sit an ponder about them more!
