Project Life

So this past weekend I pulled together some materials and pieced together the beginnings of my project life album for 2011. As I've said before, the kit and shipping costs were not worth it to me to buy Becky Higgins gear so I just gathered some of my own materials and decided to use what I have to create something wonderful to chronicle our year. Scrapbooking gets to be what you want it to be right?!

So here's my opening page. I used Studio Calico's Metropolitan kit. I love how it turned out. I added the washi taped corners as a last addition to the page and I LOVE how it looks kind of like a bulletin board or whiteboard. So cute!



I am using Project 12's sketches to create an opening layout for each month of the year. Here is January's layout which comes right after the opening page as a double layout spread.


Then I inserted a single layout about New Years and a few left over pictures I love from the same night in an American Crafts page protector with 6 slots for 4*6 photos.



I added some randoms to the other side of it with a few embellishments to dress it up.


There's also a few more single page layouts to add to this January section. The goal is to organize the year into one place-whether that turns out to be one, two, or three albums. I'm okay with that.

February's section will be a more accurate depiction of what I really want this album to look like but since I had to go back and put January together after the fact I had to use what I had. Despite that, I like the way it's turning out so far!

I'll post another update in early March to show you what February looks like.

Are you chronicling your year in some way? Are you using Project Life or the Project 12 sketches? How do you organize your scrapbooks?
