Project Life Birthday Blog Hop

Please note:  I have TWO blog posts up today...this one and one for October Afternoon.  Be sure to scroll down to see my second post.  :)

The birthday celebration continues as Project Life turns 3!  The Project Life Creative Team is having a blog hop where you read about how Project Life has inspired us all AND you'll get the chance to enter for some fabulous Project Life products.  See the Creative Team links at the bottom of this post.  
So why do I do Project Life?  

For me, I want to create albums full of memories that my family will treasure for many years to come.  The big events like birthdays and the holidays are special but it's the everyday stuff that I think is so intriguing about Project Life.  I think about the things I would love to see in photos along with a short story.....like what my room looked like as a teenager, more photos of my siblings (especially my brother that died as a teenager), meals at our old dining room table, funny things we did, the toys we played with, etc.  Project Life allows me to capture all those memories of my family and more.  That's why I do it.  

What's inspiring me right now about Project Life?

As we move into October, my mind starts to think about the holidays and baking and crafts.  One of my favorite things to look forward to is Ali Edwards' Daily December album.  This year she is going to be working with a 4 x6 album format.  You can read about her upcoming Daily December album for 2012  here.  

I love the idea of working with the simple, smaller format but to twist things up a bit I've come up with a plan that will suit my needs.  I really want to be able to integrate my Project Life album and a Daily December album into one album.  So I'm going to use the 5 x 7 Horizontal Page Protectors that are just a size up from the 4 x 6 pages that Ali will be using.  This way I can fit a little more on my pages and nestle the pages right into my Project Album since those size pages for sure fit into my PL album.  I can still follow Ali's format for her album but just tweek the designs to suit my fancy.  
You can get an idea of what this will look like from the photos below.  These are the vertical 5 x7 page protectors that I used to create a 2 page mini album of sorts for a night at the county fair.  The pages were just tucked right into my Project Life album.
My idea for my Daily December 2012 is to just insert the 5 x 7 horizontal pages into the weeks where they seem to fit the best.  And the great thing is that if my pages get too bulky or I decide I want to create a separate album, I can just take out all the 5 x 7 Daily December pages and create an entire separate album. 

I'll have more about my Daily December process on my blog starting late October or early November.  Until then I just wanted to share my ideas and perhaps spark an idea for you.  I'll be using the October Afternoon Make it Merry collection + some of my own stash items for my DD.  And good for you, I'll be giving away a pack of the horizontal 5 x 7 page protectors!!
Keeping it organized:

To keep up with Project Life, we need to keep organized right? The Big Envelope Pages are perfect for storing all those bits and pieces of life that we collect.  You can use them for school papers, newspaper articles, photos, receipts, packaging....anything that you need to keep safe and organized until it makes it into your Project Life pages.  
I've been using some of the Big Envelopes to store my October Afternoon collections.  I tuck all the small items like the tidbit packages, buttons, brads and stickers in the large pocket.  Then the 12 x 12 papers are filed behind the Big Envelope pocket.  I use one Big Envelope for each collection.  I love that!!  

For my Daily December I am planning on keeping one Big Envelope pocket inside my Project Life album.  Here I will store photos, journaling notes and anything holiday related that I want to use.  No more having stuff scattered all over for the entire month of December.  I'll also be using a Big Envelope pocket to hold some of my smaller Daily December embellishments.  I WILL be organized this holiday season!!  And lucky for you I'm also giving away a package of the Big Envelopes!
Okay, I hope I've inspired you to geared up for the holidays. I'm getting very excited...to the point of where I want to play holiday music and set up the tree.  Uh just kidding, who does that in October right?  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Birthday to Project Life!

To enter for my drawing of the 5 x7 page protectors and the Big Envelope pockets:

Leave a comment on this post before Sunday, October 7th...10pm Central Time....telling me something unique you've done/could do with your Project Life.  Have you added lots of inserts?  Do you use it for a baby album?  Do you use special accents?  Do you keep it very simple?  I'd love to know! And sorry, but the contest is open to commenters with US addresses only.

Thanks for the giveaway Mish!

Angela said...

I love the idea of mixing in the 5x7 inserts for December -- that's definitely an idea I'd like to try! Thanks!

Sherry Eckblad said...

What a great way to incorporate the December Daily into Project Life. I am totally stealing your idea.

Rossana said...

nice giveaway!

sheetal patel said...

I am hoping to start project life to document my new baby's life. Thanks for the chance to win!!

Susan Bowers said...

what a great giveawy; interesting idea for the december daily - if only i had begun PL in 2012. my plan is for 2013.

Unknown said...

I do the digital version of PL. but I will adhere ticket stubs and other flat memorabilia to the inside covers.

Keith Mustard said...

I am using the Project Life system to get all of my scrapbooking caught up from my daughters life. She is now 10 years old. I am starting with putting all of the pages I have done in traditional scrapbooking style and will fill the voids with the Project Life style of scrapbooking.

Julie said...

I've done a mixture of digital and paper scrapbooking - that's my unique take on Project Life. I took a couple of years off from scrapbooking, so it's nice to have this creative outlet again.

Heather said...

I don't know if I do anything unique with Project Life, but I tend to keep things simple and mix digital and paper. Thanks for the giveaway!

Melinda M. said...

Great giveaway. I don't think my PL pages are particularly unique, but they have my story, my journaling. :)

Lydia said...

some great ideas for mixing things up in a pl album.

kollerskrafts said...

I don't have anything unique *yet* ... that said, I am using 1/2 of a turquoise kit and 1/2 of a clementine kit :) thanks for the chance to win!

Elizabeth V. said...

I love the idea of bumping up to a 5x7 size for Daily December. Adding your inserts into Project Life makes lots of sense and I'm excited to see your finished pages. Thanks for offering the great ideas and the fun prizes!

Pam said...

Love your idea for using the 5x7 inserts for DD. Thanks for a chance at the giveaway. In love with the big envelopes.

mshaf23 said...

I'm just ready to get started, but plan on using it to document my kids' school year and their various activities. Next year I'll do one for our new baby!

proudmama said...

I love PL! and it has revolutionized the way I scrapbook! i love adding inserts with my kids' work from school. i have been able to turn it into life/school albums and that just works out so much better for us! thanks for the chance to win some great stuff!:)

Monica said...

Thanks so much for the chance to win!

gashuttergirl said...

Thanks for the great giveaway. I am just starting PL (for the second time), so I am loving all the new ideas that I am getting from the creative team members.

Miss Kathy said...

I will just be starting PL in 2013 but plan to do 1 page per week with smaller add in page protectors for special occasions. Your giveaway should come in handy. Thanks for a chance to win.

Diana said...

I started doing Project Life in 2010. I have never made weekly layouts. Instead I just place the photos as I take them with the story beside them. If I want to (and have the time) I include traditional layouts (of different sizes) between the pocket pages in the album. Thanks for the giveaway!

Xin said...

I don't really do anything unique with my PL. Just keeping it simple. College + part-time work doesn't leave me much time to do scrapbooking!

juju vee! said...

Thanks for the chance of giving away these pockets and envelopes. Hmm. I love adding these small pockets makes your pages more fun!

Kim said...

I'm just beginning with my PL, but I would love to be able to include videos in my PL with the Scan Life app. So fun!

R said...

Thanks for the chance! I have included a lot of inserts especially Design G and 6x12 protectors to put in memorabilia. Lots of 8.5x11 pp for my daughter's marching band competition scores

julie e said...

Thanks for the chance to win.

Renee said...

Well,I don't have anything unique yet because I haven't started! I'm trying to figure out where and how to start, there are so many PL inserts, pages, etc.. I want to do this but am so confused!! These envelopes sound like a good start?! Thanks for the chance to win

Elysia said...

i was just thinking how i needed some 5x7 plastics!! :)

Ann said...

Currently my PL album is broken down into three separate sections; one for everyday life; one for the kids' school progress; one for special occasions. Might separate it out later, but want to get it all going simultaneously for now~~thank you for the extra offer of supplies!

Lisa said...

Don't have all the little extra yummies...that would be great:)

peaches said...

What a great idea of using the big enveoples to store everything at your fingertips!!

DawnBeery said...

Great giveaway! I use different size inserts in my PL life album almost weekly! School papers, menus or extra pictures are usually want are in them.

Linda Jordan said...

I love your idea of blending the December Daily with project life! I haven't started project life yet so I'm not sure how it will work for me but I'm extremely excited to start it in 2013! [I put it off partially because of December Daily & because I already have a 2012 album going]

Linda

Susan Slinkard said...

Thanks much for the giveaways. I love having the 5x7 inserts also!

Michelle said...

Hi Mish! I actually use my PL in a different way than how it's intended. My hubby and I moved to Colorado Springs 5 years ago, and I'm using PL as a scrapbook, starting when we moved here. We LOVE it out here, and I wanted a simple way to keep the photos of all our CO adventures together. PL to the rescue! Thanks for the chance to win!

Sarah Zinkel said...

i just started my PL album 3 weeks ago. i kept putting it off for the "right time", but then decided that the right time to document my life is NOW! so i jumped in with both feet. :)

The Golden Family said...

I used PL for our trip to Scotland!!

tiarastantrums said...

I need to get on this task and quickly - I have baskets full of memories that need to be placed in books!

j*e*n said...

I need to get back to documenting my kiddos' lives...I know it's cliche, but they're growing up so fast!

MsCinderella said...

This is fun... like a treasure hunt!

CJb said...

I don't do anything unique or ground breaking in my PL, but I do love using the pockets to include birthday cards & special ephemera. Thanks for the chance to win!

Jessica B said...

Love your selection for giveaway. I have been wanting to get some of hte 5x7 size. I use a lot of inserts in my PL album. I was thinking incorporating my DD album into PL this year also.

marla said...

What a great project and very fun ideas to use so many great products. Thanks for a chance to win some very useful items. TFS

Amy Papale said...

I love your idea about using the large inserts to store your supplies. Very clever and a great use of the inserts. I am very new to PL and think I will start with one large album to document my daughter's life to this point (6 years worth) and then start fresh for 2013. I will keep it very basic, few embellishments just to get caught up and free myself of the "mom guilt" This way my pictures are in a book rather than in boxes. I know that is not how PL was intended, but it is the quickest way for me to catch up, it's a start.

Julie Boeck said...

You are always inspiring! Love your posts and your Project Life creativity is amazing!!

Sharla said...

I have really enjoyed your blog over the past couple years and love your PL pages. I use my PL as a normal album, I don't do the Picture a Day, I just like the fact that I don't have to do a bunch of traditional layouts with all my pictures, if I want a special layout for my first page that's great, then just slip in the rest of the pics into the 4x6 pages! I do want to pick up some 5x7 pages though..that would add some fun!

Mendi M said...

Something unique? How about actually keeping up with it? That's unique for me! Thanks for the chance.

Seester2T said...

I do mine more as a year in review. I don't have kids so it's more about my husband, me and our dogs. I still keep it in order of months but I don't use the dividers just monthly cards to separate them and whatever I have for a month is what I have. Nice and simple. Some months are packed, some months may only have two pictures but that's okay. I do love all the new products that Becky has come out with though to jazz everything up but still keep it simple. I love that I can do this along with my traditional layouts and not feel overwhelmed. Thanks for the giveaway!

Jenn said...

I haven't yet used either the 5x7 insert or the big envelopes in my Project Life album, but would love to use them! Thanks for the chance to win some!

Marcie said...

What a great post, love the products you're giving away, thank you for the chance!

Liz H. said...

I just keep my project life simple and extra's here in there as to not make it to bulky.

Rhadonda said...

I was way behind with pictures from at least 10 years ago. I took the PL approach and put those pictures in the page protectors along with what journaling i could remember (see why you should at least write things down?) So still plugging away. Thanks!

Lynne said...

I am not sure i have done anything too creative, but I do add an inset each month with a big monthly summary.

Teal said...

Going to use it for my new baby! I had a very elaborate baby book planed for my daughter and haven't touched it in the three years since she was born. I know PL will help me document this one!

Margie said...

I haven't done PL yet-but I am serioussly thinking about it for next year! Thanks for a chance to win!

iamjuju said...

Great idea for the 5x7 inserts! Thanks for the giveaway AND the inspiration!

Ashley Rustad said...

This is an awesome giveaway. I just purchased my first Project Life supplies and will be doing from now until the end of the year. Starting with the Seafoam Edition for 2013. So exciting!

Danielle said...

I started off doing collages but now I just keep it really simple with photos & PSE text & a few embellies. Thx!

Melissa said...

I use PL to store my ideas for everything I am working on at the time; if i am redecorating a room I will keep the different paint colors or furniture placements (drawings) of my ideas in that week. It is so versatile!

Raven said...

I haven't started PL yet, but we are buying a new house and I would love to use it for the before and after of the new house. Thanks for the chance to win.

Latonia Grant said...

Thanks for a chance to win!

{VICKI} said...

OMG
Love these pages!
thanks for the chance

Debbie Pereira said...

love project life! Thanks for sharing.

blupixy said...

I have used a couple of inserts for my PL album. I llike to use them for invitations, programs, enlargement photos, and artwork from my kids. Also used a 6x12 insert for my day in the life project.
I do a mix of simple and played up. I have a bit of trouble just sliding in a journaling card or photo without doing something to it (stamping, punches, washi, etc.) but I tend to stick with 4x6 photos and the 2x3 journaling cards.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Mary Dapelo said...

I love using inserts for all the "extra" photos from the week. Other than that I keep it pretty simple. The occasional label or tab on the side of a page but not really any other embellishments. I love including lots of kid art in my book too. Thank you !

Kelly Massman said...

i love the idea of having special photos mixed in in the 5 x 7 size! I also like saving fun mementos in the envies!! fun to capture everyday moments!!! thanks for the giveaway chance!

Moe said...

I use my blog to keep the grandparents up to date and also the entries became my Pl daily entries.
This is my 4th year doing PL.

thank for the chance to win

Connie B said...

I dpn't know if I can mix my December daily with the everyday, but I think I might try!

Anika said...

Love your DD idea. PL is helping me catch up with my kids albums. Thanks for the chance

Beth said...

I try to keep it simple as possible! When I start adding a ton of extra inserts, etc., that is when I get behind!

lisaplus6 said...

I would love to do my December Daily inside my Project Life!! Thank you for the chance to win!

I always love your designs... so inspiring!!

webdabbler said...

I have been using mine as School of Life albums for my kids as I didn't want to wait for the childhood kits but I can't wait for those to be available as that will be my next purchase.

Kate Burroughs said...

Loving Project Life. Thanks for a chance to win!
Aloha, Kate

katiedidit said...

I want to try some of the smaller sizes as inserts. So cool.

Valerie K said...

Love seeing your PL pages!! I'm not sure I do anything unique to my PL pages, but I do include some traditional 12x12 scrapbook pages in between (as inserts) sometimes. I usually do this for weeks when we were on a vacation.

Happy Birthday Project Life!!!

Shaylin + Cody said...

Project Life has saved my life! I just got married in January, so I'm loving keeping it simple, but documenting the little things in our first year of marriage!! Thanks for the giveaway!

Basement Stamper said...

I'm always inspired by your Project life album and although I don't do it the traditional way, I always enjoy seeing how everyone else does there's and I love that it's helped me to keep up with my stuff.

Robin said...

I keep it simple and use the designs other than 'A' to add inserts.

Miriam Prantner said...

I want to start something project lifeish for my daughter now that she's in school. Those big pocket would be great for kindergarten art work/handouts/miscellany.

amsynicole said...

i have just started PL as a way to get caught up after my second child and the start of homeschooling! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Lisa Johnson said...

I used Project Life to go back and document my 18 month LDS mission to Slovenija that I served in 2002-2003. I ♥ Project Life!

Mandy said...

I keep it simple but I can't wait for the baby editions.

Christa Allgood said...

I'm new to PL so I haven't tried anything exciting YET!! I do like to cut up my pictures to fit them into multiple pockets!

Lynn said...

Thanks for the chance to win! I love the idea of using the 5x7 pages!

TJ said...

Such a nice blog hop. I am just starting PL. Love all the inspiration!!

crschaf said...

I so want to do Project Life, I even ordered the kit last year. It is still laying in the same spot empty. I love looking at yours and many others but have just been intimidated I guess. I have thought I could start by recording only one spread a month...anyway love your idea of organizing in the Pocket Pages-genius!

wendy said...

your album is one of my favorites to look at. i'm amazed at all the different ways you design your journaling cards. i'm doing a monthly approach and have been trying to include larger photos. i love seeing 12x12's all cut up to fit in the pockets.

Valerie said...

I love project life!

Jean M said...

Thanks for the chance to win. PL is new to me. I'm thinking it would be good for my parent's pictures and other items.

Unknown said...

Hi! I love Project Life, but it quickly became tedious to always have the same format... I purchased many different page protectors and I LOVE my albums!!! It's a mixtures of quick notes, elaborate 12X12, and other sizes as my fancy strikes! Mixing it up makes for awesome albums. Easy to add to! Love your blog and projects.

I use mine to document our travels around the world. Each country has a large envelope. I will add PL envelopes when they come to keep brochures.

Karen in Virginia said...

I love your ideas for Dec Daily. It's also one of my favorite things. And I'm ready for some Christmas too, maybe it wouldn't be too early (wince) to get out the Christmas dishes?! :D
PL is flexible and that's how I use it. Sometimes a lot, sometimes a little and both ways fit, which makes it easy.
I haven't used the big envelopes or the 5x7 pages yet so they'd be great to win. Thanks for the chance!

reneecorps said...

What a great giveaway. This would be a great asset for PL starting 2013. Thank you for all sparking my creative juices for 5x7 additions.

jedger1085 said...

Love your idea for mixing in the December Daily into PL! Can't wait to see how it turns out! Thanks for the chance to win!

Sandra said...

I haven't done anything too special with my book. Just my journaling with my pictures. Simple but so perfect for me! Thanks for the chance to win.

Karen R said...

I use them for my nieces and nephews albums.

Sandy B said...

I'm an event scrapbooker, so in PL I do a 2-page layout for each occasion (that has enough pics). Then, for the 'other stuff of life' in between, I have hodgepodge layouts. Everything's in general chronologic order (not specifically a week-by-week summary like many other PLs are doing).

Michelle said...

I have added lots of extra pages and inserts for sure. I am on my third album just for 2012!

karenelr said...

Thanks for the awesome giveaway PL pockets and protectors! I love Becky's products. I intend to use a lot of embellishments outside the page protectors, too. I love your idea with the 5 x 7's! Thanks!

ejmom said...

I love your project life shares. Your post gave me some really great ideas for the holidays. Thanks for the inspiration & the giveaway!

Lisa said...

I, too, like your December Daily idea. I figure December will be a bulky month whether you leave the inserts in your PL album or not. I know mine will.

Patchouly said...

I love that Project Life allows you to easily include all of the "bits and pieces" that I normally would just shove in my scrapbooking table and never see again!

Jac said...

Thanks for a chance at this giveaway! I am a HUGE project life fan...it is simply the best idea for streamlining memory-keeping!

Karenj said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I'd love to try using the big envelopes for organizing collections. Hadn't thought about that! I love PL, lately I've been using design F to incorporate some current events into my scrapbook. My favorite one this year was to add some tidbits on the Olympics.

LittleSurferGirl said...

For 2011 and 2012, I kept PL very simple. I'm looking forward in 2012 to incorporating more stamps and die cuts into my layouts and not be so dependant on the premade journaling cards. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Jennifer Johnson said...

Happy Birthday Project Life!!! Love it SO much!

Jackie - aka funhockeymom25 said...

i am documenting a huge life change as we relocate to a new state. as crazy as life is, it helps me focus on the little things. love these sizes!

Sheryl Berglund said...

My Project Life isn't very unique....just very simple so I keep up with it! Love Project Life!

My plan is to use Project Life to document two trips that we took to Disney. I took lots of notes and I am almost ready to start =)

debbie said...

Michelle, What GREAT ideas for incorporating your Dec. daily in your project life! This is one of the reasons I LOVE PROJECT LIFE! it is so simple yet so flexible. It meets every need. I have enjoyed Becky's product for all three years. I LOVE PROJECT LIFE!

ruth said...

I really do keep it simple. I do a week on a single page and add whatever I feel like adding. Photos, stubs & receipts, wrappers, whatever! I just keep trying to simplify!

sclugo said...

I loved it the very first time I saw how you used the 5x7 page protectors and think its a great idea! Thats what I love about PL. You can add as much as you want or not!

Stahl Family said...

I usually do a two page spread with the project life page protectors then add some smaller inserts between for what would not fit. I love doing this -- adds variety and fun to the album. Never know what the next turn of the page will hold.

Julie and Vince said...

I'm working on adapting PL for my kids school albums, which are woefully out of date. Thanks for the chance to win!

budletsmom said...

I love the idea of mixing it up. I have kept mine pretty simple but did add page protectors to add in artwork and school work each month for my DS. I wanted to be able to look back and see what he was doing in school and see his handwriting.

bryansgyrl said...

To house my sticker collection. :) I like the different size pockets to hold all the different sized sticker sheets.

Erika B. said...

I just mentioned this on another blog but something unique that I plan on doing when I start PL in 2013 is including all the little tidbits I collect when we go places. I have a huge stash and PL will let me incorporate these in my weekly spreads. Thanks for the chance to win!

Kathleen said...

I keep mine simple, but I do enjoy adding inserts for special occasions!

Aubrey said...

I do keep mine really simple...just journaling, bits and pieces of everyday, and pictures. Thanks for the giveaway!

Steph said...

I kept mine really simple - too simple. I only had time to put all of my son's photos in and haven't had time to journal on my cards (I have an online file I update with my stories). I just need to get it together - and soon because I also want to do a Dec Daily this year.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Angela Spangela said...

One of my goals before I turn 26 next year is to do a week in the life for my last week of being 25, I'd love to incorporate that into the album.

tracy said...

I print out funny quotes my kids say on 3x4 journaling cards. They always make me laugh!

Leanne said...

Thanks Mish I had not 1 but 2 (TWO) ah-ha moments while reading your blog this morning: I did my version of December Daily 2011 at the start of my Project Life album (my first year for both) and just used Becky's Design A pages. Ah-ha No 1: LOVE your idea of using the 5x7 inserts (& yes I agree 5x7 will give me more room to play with, might even use some of the other sizes to change it up a bit throughout the month). Ah-ha No 2: LOVE your idea of using the 12x12 Pocket Pages to house your October Afternoon collection - I can really see that this would work for me too. I got so excited about your post that I shared with our Facebook Project Life Australia group - afterall good ideas have to be share. Thanks so much

Jazzmom said...

I love the idea of creating the December Daily using the 5×7 inserts ... as well as using the Big Envelopes to organize everything!
I'm using Project Life to organize all the photos we have of our new little granddaughter.

5 x 7 size is perfect for me! I make smaller albums for my own kind of project life - one page per week. Thanks for the chance

Tash said...

Thanks for the chance to win, I just found PL 3 months ago after the birth of my 3rd daughter and I'm LOVING IT!

Jennifer Land said...

For my family's Project Life I 've been using 1/2 of the Clementime kit mixed with my own stash. Since I'm a Studio Calico subscriber I usually use products from that month's kit. I also use 1/2 Design A pages mixed with 1/2 of the Big Variety pack to mix things up. Thanks for a great giveaway and can't wait to see those December Daily pages!

Tiffany H. said...

I'm just about to jump on the PL bandwagon. I ordered the turquoise kit when it was recently restocked. Your giveaway would be a great addition to my very small PL stash of supplies. Thanks!

Thanks for the chance!

CaliforniaBlondeWrites said...

My kids are all grown up, so I document the grandkid's doings... Plus, I want my kids to get to know me better, and PL is a good way of doing that. And it's so much fun!

Rachel said...

something unique-I added the packaging from my Christmas presents last year so that I could see what I was "in to" that year. :) thanks for the chance to win!

Dana said...

I'm simple. Just trying to get the hang of it and get into a rhythm. I just started a little over a month ago and love it!

Debbie said...

I am just now taking the Project Life class and beginning my long journey of getting all the photos that are in bags, boxes and enveloped into Project Life Albums. I have many different sized photos, so the 5x7 inserts will be perfect for inserting the kids class photos. I am so excited to get started.

Stacia said...

Love the idea of using the same designs/cards/ideas for a family history album. Makes it all seem much more doable!

CandraWynne said...

I want some of these SOO bad!

Amanda said...

I keep mine pretty simple, but I do use the 6 x 12 inserts for extra pics

skcoe said...

Something I plan to do next year is add more about what is going on in the world around us, I was thinking a "news page" once a month as a 5x7 or 8x10 insert??

Christine said...

cool! thanks so much for the giveaway!

Susan E said...

love the fact that she has made different sizes of page protectors to incorporate all the stuff of "life".

Whskr & Dash Kitten said...

As a new Project Life-r I did not know how useful or effective the other pages could be - Wow these are cool!

Sarah said...

I LOVE PL, mine has been mostly simple. But every so often I fancy it up a bit. Life is busy and I haven`t had time to get too creative unfortunately.

Thanks so much for the chance to win!

Susy said...

Thank you for this giveaway! I've been a scrapbooker for over 10 years and now only use project life for all my albums: the everyday albums and even my baby albums! Thank you for the chance to win!

Lisa Shay said...

well, i've given this project as a gift to two different brides to keep track of their first year of marriage. they loved it.
thanks for this opportunity!

Lisa Rice said...

I have just started PL and I decided as my first project to do my personal history in one album. My mom saved a lot of my stuff from baby through childhood- so I am incorporating as much of the memorabilia with the pictures as I can, to tell my life story. I love the pockets to put items in such as my girl scout sash and even a t-shirt from the first concert I went to. I am having a blast!

Kary said...

I am new to PL and at this point I am keeping it simple until I get in the groove. I consider myself a creative person but that is what as slowed me down in traditional scrapbooking. I have really gotten into simple embellishments and find that works good with the journal cards..so maybe its a happy medium to getting things done!

Jeanette said...

I keep my PL pretty simple, but love to add the occasional BIG picture for impact!

Shark said...

I'm using PL for our chronological documentation (vacations, holidays, birthdays etc. stay in the main album). But I'm planning to create a separate album once the Baby edition becomes available.
Thank you for the giveaway!

Emily said...

I scan all my kids artwork and print them in 3x4's to add to my PL albums... I don't want to forget anything!!

Jen said...

Cool idea! I love that I can include my kids' artwork and little scraps of notes and drawings that they leave here and there. Thanks for the chance to win!

Wende Beedle said...

Just to add-- I am one of those people who put a tree up in October lol but only one time and there were circumstances associated with that story, although my hubby won't let me forget it.

And speaking of PL, this story is one of those I will be adding to my 2000-2008 PL album(s) when I get everything ready to put it together. I am going back and getting those early years of our marriage consolidated into one or more albums and PL is helping me make that happen.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Joanne said...

i haven't really started my PL. waiting for 2013 but i can't wait and you always provide tons of inspiration!

Tana said...

I tend to keep my PL very simple, a month at a time. I would love to try some new twists and the 5x7 would add some variety. Thanks for the giveaway.

IAmMikki said...

I have been doing Project Life since 2010 now and one of my favorite tricks when I have lots of pictures is cutting a 4x6 photo in half and putting it in the journal spots. Unique, No. Easy, YES! That is the best part about this project, lots of memories, lots of stories, easy execution.

Felicia J said...

I have been doing project life for 3 years as well! Thanks for the chance!

Christina said...

I don't feel very creative. That's why I kept the album that I completed simple. I love that it still looks clean and fresh and fun due to the design elements!

Amy said...

Thanks for the chance to win big!

Amy Lee said...

Hi Mish!
Thanx for the opportunity :) I started PL in Feb for my own personal scrapbook. It has helped me rethink my picture taking and documentation of life. Really like how you use the 5x7 as a mini album within your album.
Amy

Tiffany said...

I'm rather boring, just using design A. would be fun to get the two items you are giving away. thanks for the chance.

robynthedoglover said...

I have pl now but I would like to do an album for my children to tell stories about important people that were in my life that are no longer here. Thanks for the chance!

Heather DeMartino said...

I'm new to PL so don't have anythign to say about anything unique that I have done with it, but I am dying to get caught up with my 12 year old son's photos. I also plan to get all the photos from my mom from my childhood years and use PL to get them into a book. I'm already addicted!

PattiM said...

I love that pl is so easy to use. I've never used the envelopes and would love to use it for extra photos..

Hugs,
