Project Life In 2018

Hola Crafty Friends!! Thinking of trying out this style of scrapbooking, this year. It’s called “Project Life”, where you basically create along the way as life happens. So printing out pics immediately or right after it happens, and adding a bit of journaling to explain the pics on the pages, and any type of embellishments too!!! I thought it would be perfect since I have both printables and physical stock to use. I found it easier and fun to be able to journal via computer, and then have it printed out. All pics were printed on my printer, and then I cut out each according to the size of the sheets. The album and photo sheets are from Fun Stampers Journey (www.funstampersjourney.com/jenyoung). Each set of Pocket Photo Pages comes with a “size map” that shows the size of each photo pocket, so I know what size to print each photo (scroll below to see a pic of what I am pertaining to). Then I print on a 8-1/2 x 11 glossy photo sheet, and cut the photos out. I love the set of photo pockets that FSJ offer, they have several packages, with a variety of photo pockets with different layouts.

Pages 2 & 3: I cut out some digital elements from Doodlebug Digital Designs, and adhered them to random photos.

The album that I have here is a black album, sized at 6” x 8”. It also came with 10 pocket pages. There are 2 rings in the middle, and easily pull apart to add/remove paper or pocket pages. As I create these pages, I know I will be adding more “here n’ there”... it’ll be fun!!!
This page is incomplete!
Here is page 4, it’s incomplete. I still need to journal and add embellishment(s) to this page. Will post it again, when I get done with it.
Products that I used from Fun Stampers Journey are:
  • Black Licorice Journey Days Album - JD-0016
  • Variety Packs of Photo Pages: JD-0019; JD-0020 & JD-0021
As promised, here is a picture of the “size map” that is provided on one of the pocket page sets...
