Wonderful Project Life

My sister Sarah told me about Project Life early this year and i didn't really understand what it was. Then mum brought it up again saying Sarah had started hers and again I didn't really respond still not knowing what it was. One day I popped over to have a look at Pam Garrison's blog (one of my favourites) and she had just completed this post . Well did that get me going! I love what she does and she gives all the info, with links, about what you need to get started!

Since reading her post I haven't looked back since! I urgently ordered albums, inserts and a core kit from a site in the UK and was bursting at the seems until it arrived. There are a lot of freebie printables (I have many saved on Pinterest) out there to use and also great sites that sell digital cards as well. I particularly like the Lilypad store . I'm still collecting things here and there so as goodies arrive I may change a few things on a couple of pages. 

I'm keeping it fairly simple, not very good at scrapbooking and journalling but I love the way you can store memories and keep records! Lulu is also involved occasionally writing, drawing and advising me.

I am now up to week 6, 2014 here are a few pages:

I've also started do our wedding album, the photos have shamefully been sitting in a box since 2003!
This is an epic job all my photos are on discs which we never look at so now I plan to go through and slowly put favourite photos in albums! Like I really have time for this!!!! Regardless it's well worth it and great fun. Hopefully as time goes I'll get better at it!!!!!


  1. This is looking great! I, too, am not good at scrapbooking or journaling, but I heart this simple and fun system! Oh and btw you have a beautiful family!! xoxo, Amy

  2. Wow Rach. You are doing a great job so far!!!!

  3. I LOVE visiting your blog! I feel as though we are connected somehow because we love vintage, sewing and now I see we both just started Project Life this year! Great album and I'm looking forward to seeing more of your pages this year.
