I started a Project Life last year...and then got bogged down in too many photos and not enough time. Add in a lack of creative-craft energy...and I ended up with maybe 7 pages.
Then while browsing Instagram, I totally felt re-inspired to try again. There are some majorly talented scrapbookers out there, and I want in on the fun.
I had quite the pile of photos to catch up on...So, this week I made a tiny dent in a year worth of photo-taking... I decided to do a fun, get-in-the-swing-of-things album for last year, spanning from summer 2013 all the way to this spring (2014). Then, I have a second album--the real go at PL-- I am going to start the first week of June. I like the idea of summer-to-summer album years, because summer is my favorite season; and in my opinion, the best one for photos.
Last time I tried this project, I did not use any of the PL tags. This time, I bought a few collections to make things easier on the weeks I feel frazzled and rushed. They are so cute, too. Why did I not try them before?
And the 12X12 pages with 3 rows of 4X4's~~ I had trouble finding them, but so glad I was able to grab a few packs. They are so perfect for lots and lots of my Instagrams. I love square photos, so these are a definite must.
I still need to tackle last year's holiday pages. And I want to do a page or two of Phil and the kids. But, I have a few more days before June starts, so I should be okay:). Is there a PL accountability group, because someone should start one for people like me. :)
Do you do Project Life?
Any favorite card collections or scrap materials?
And do you have an IG account where you share your creations? ...
Mine is @kristacanary.
Gonna start a weekly post sharing my pages to keep me on track.
Wish me luck:).
