Last year I fell in love with the concept of Project Life.

I loved the way it allowed me to use all my favorite elements (paper, photos + memorabilia) in one place without having to make traditional scrapbook pages. At first I was super dedicated (I’m going to do this every week! of every year! for the rest of my life!), but like all long-term creative endeavors, I eventually fell off the bandwagon. I started to feel that I had gotten too far behind (even though I don’t believe in that!) and “catching up” just seemed too daunting a task. I still loved the concept, but I knew I needed to find a system that work better for me.

So after much thought + inspiration from others, I decided to try something new. This year I’m going with an 8.5×11″ format using a mix of baseball card sleeves and traditional Project Life page protectors cut down to size. I also plan on forgoing a rigid week-by-week schedule and instead, simply filling up my pages when and how I see fit. Nothing too fancy. Nothing too crazy. But totally doable.

    sounds like a good idea to me! that’s how i did mine last yr(& this yr). sometimes i would combine 2or3 wks together on a spread or even a whole month. no pressure no worries =))

    That’s such a good idea actually. I had been thinking of combining two weeks per spread, but I love the idea of just adding stuff when I have it and not worrying about it! Thanks!!
