Project Life is helping me document my family’s memories

166 Flares 166 Flares ×

One of my goals for 2013 is to spend more time creating and documenting my family’s life experiences and adventures. If you follow me on Instagram, you can see that I’ve been taking {and sharing} more photos and one thing I plan to do with all of those photos is create a digital Project Life album.

If you’re not familiar with Project Life, it’s a back-to-basics approach to scrapbooking. This great system that Becky Higgins created takes the “scrapbooking” out of scrapbooking so you can focus on turning your family’s everyday activities, celebrations, challenges, and your big moments into albums to be cherished.

I’m using the turquoise collection, I love the bright pops of color! One thing that really draws me to the Project Life system is that everything is coordinated, so there’s no need to worry if something is going to match!

Project Life Turquoise Edition

There are several extra elements to help spruce up your album, too!

Project Life Templates

And the template choices provide a variety of layout options so that each of your pages has a different look!

Project Life Templates

After purchasing the Turquoise Project Life kit and templates available, I knew that I had to give a set away to one of you! One lucky Nap Time is My Time winner is going to receive a digital core kit of their choice, complete set of templates and a $50 Shutterfly gift card to print your book!

{Please keep in mind that with the digital format, you’ll need a photo editing software to create your scrapbook layouts, and add typed text to your journaling cards – I use Photoshop and have heard of others using the free photo-editing software from Gimp. Photoshop is NOT included in this giveaway.}

********************THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED!!! Congratulations to Tracey L. the lucky winner! She chose the
Cherry Edition – it’s gorgeous and making me crave it as well!************************

    Project Life is so easy that my nine year old has taken over my stuff. She wants to do it, and can. I haven’t gotten to play with it much, so I am looking to get some more for me. I still think it is great that my daughter is interested, at her age, to document her life in her way.
