Of course, who wants to get gold lame' undies from a stranger? NOT ME!
I bought a bunch of trashy undies and had them mail them from all over the states

my PROJECT LIFE just arrived in the mail

I'm excited.I was going to try it a few months ago and then changed my mind ($$$) and then it was all on sale over black Friday weekend so I ordered it.

I've been traditional scrapping for over 20 years and I'm falling more behind each and every day!

So I'm going to try this. I think I'm going to combine some of the pages I have already made the traditional way with some of the Project Life pages -- all in the same book.

Suggestions are VERY WELCOME! Would love to hear from you if you are using Project Life.

are you saying instead of trying to scrap the past year because you were behind, that you uploaded them & ordered a printed book instead?

Not sure I understand what you ordered.

ETA: went thru OP's past posts & found this from August. Now off to google to see what the product is.

Got it. Its those divided page protectors where you slip in the photos & journal or embellish only as you want or need, instead of scrapping an entire page.

I quit scrapping years ago just because I could never keep up. I also don't even print pics anymore at this point. BUT, if this method had been around then, I might have kept up with it better. I've used similar method a few years ago for one occasion, but it wasn't from Becky higgins.

on Becky Higgins dot com I watched the 30 minute video of her "dealing with kids stuff" and I might try to make some of those albums too. She scanned a lot of her kids' art work and put the pictures in project life. That seems like a pretty organized thing to do.

I created my own Project 365 a few years ago... and I really need to order two project life kits so I can do my 2012 & 2013 books...

I too am falling further and further behind... I think my 2012 Disney trip I'm going to do digital and it will take several books..... but it may be the only way I can do it and it get done. I'm working on my 2010 Disney book right now and need to use up by swap stash so that I don't feel guilty about them just sitting in their drawers awaiting use.


We do have a fellow DISboard member, StitchIsOurHero, who has been using the Project Life books for a while because she and her DS4 like them so much more.. He looks through the books with her a lot and she is able to keep fairly caught up and he can relive their adventures faster..


Good luck with your project!! I'm sure you will like it... Can't wait to hear what you think! I may need to consider ordering them after the first of the year after DD's tuition is paid at the end of this month!

You're going to love it.
I did my own version of Becky's project 365 using Creative Memories albums and I actually finished those 2 years within months of the year being over. It was refeshing! And they will be easy to replicate if the kids want a copy of their own.

Moving forward I will be doing Project 365/Life digitally only because I am running out of space to put albums.

I have CM albums that I MUST use , but I love Project Life and Becky's materials. Did you just use the formats for the PL sleeves and put them on the 12x12 CM pages?
