Shares of my 2012 Project Life
(in reverse chronological order)
In 2012, my first year of Project Life, I documented weekly double-page spreads, using Becky Higgins cards, and later, Studio Calico cards. I did weekly title cards, despite hating those evil titles. I ended up with 2 albums that captured the richness of our lives.
My set-up as of fall 2012

My Process and Set Up for PL
Late June to Canada Day 2012
Mid to Late June 2012
Early June 2012
|Scraps from the week’s layouts + washi + markers = PL goodness!|
|I love putting all these pretties together|
Mid to late May 2012
|Project Life-in’ it in my scraproom|
|Lots of scraps and found items on this spread|
|I used Diptic (an iPhone app) to create this collage of nail photos|
|Using up as much of the Bo Bunny Ad Lib collection as I can! It’s perfect for PL.|
|Using the Design F page protector was so much fun!
Taking advantage of the pre-printed Cobalt journalling cards made this spread a breeze!
Early May 2012
|The Ad Lib Collection by BoBunny is perfect for PL.
I have lots of leftovers from the pieces I bought last summer.
|I love the colours of this spread… and all those yummy Sassafras letter stickers!|
|This is a flip-up and pull-out journalling card.
I journalled inside about a difficult issue our family has been struggling with.
|I created a series of journalling cards using Studio Calico stamps and Becky Higgins’ blank journalling cards|
|School awards, pink woodgrain screen print, mix and match Thickers, Jack’s eye…
all in a week of documenting the everyday!
|My Fake double 3X4pocket (really a single 4X6 pocket with acetate holding the cards in place)|
Mid to Late March 2012
|Studio Calico advertisement scraps abound in this week’s spread!|
|These little Instax photos are perfect for PL!|
Late February to Early March 2012
|Ok, so this photo is a little contrived, but we had fun contriving it!
(and making silly photos is part of our life, having a photo studio in the basement, and all!)
|Julie Balzer was bound to show up on these pages somewhere!|
Disney Edition (February 2012)
This video received a lot of attention… Becky Higgins herself tweeted it and posted it on her Facebook page! I am so thrilled that my QR code idea went over so well with scrapbookers! I see lots of people using it and putting their own spin on it. Such a fun way to add an interactive component to PL.
|I created a card of Hits and Misses to remember the things to do and not do on our next Disney vacation|
|Candy wrappers, labels, QR codes, and stickers|
|QR codes give PL an interactive twist!|
|I completed all 13 double-sided page protectors, and 10 inserts of various sizes in one weekend,
thanks to my Cobalt core kit. I added stickers, park brochure clippings, ticket stubs, etc.
|This insert is just 1/2 of a Design A page protector|
January to Early February 2012
(getting my bearings and learning to document the everyday)
|Some of my PL pages are pretty basic, but they are still beautiful, even without all the pretties…
The beauty of PL is that it can be whatever you want it to be- quick and simple, or elaborate and detailed.
