I debated for awhile whether or not to have another go at Project Life this year. I tried it last year, but ultimately fell off the bandwagon very early on. I believe my failure was in a large part due to my lack of organization. I approached it with the hopes of creating my own cards from month to month to match my photos. In the end though, it was extra work each month and instead, I found myself creating layouts.
In theory, I like the concept of Project Life. At least I like my adapted version, in which, I choose some of the photos that won't be going onto layouts. they would instead inhabit the pockets of my divided page protectors. These project life pages would make a lovely introduction to each month with a series of the month's layouts occupying the album behind them. So once again, I have decided to attempt Project Life. This time though, I have made a few changes.
This year I chose to buy the digital version of the Sea Foam kit from ACDigitals.com. It's more economical then buying a pre-printed core kit. I can print as much or as little as I please. I have also chosen a few sets of the free project life cards available in the internet.I purchased a package of cardstock in 81/2 x 11 size and printed off my card sets. The disadvantage to this method is that I have to cut everything out. I found the task a but easier to accomplish by cutting the cards out while watching TV with my husband.
Now, my album is started and all I need to do is print my photos and insert them in the pockets.
