Project Life

Since August 2013 I have been documenting my life in pictures.

After spending 20 minutes with me you will figure out how obsessed with taking pictures I am, my iPhone is constantly screaming at me to clear up some space, my iPad too, 6GB of just pictures slowing up my phone.. then god knows how much on my Laptop too.

So back in 2013, I was complaining at the amount of photos I have, but my lack of organisation and ability to view them. So my lovely friend Kerri introduced me to an american concept called project life.

The idea is basic - but beautiful. I can look back over the past two years in detail, what I have done, my achievements, moments where I never want to forget a thing, and moments so ordinary that they would be forgotten about without writing them down.

You completely control it all, you can do it weekly, monthly, seasonally? You can pick your layout, pick your cards or the option to embelish, stamp or just go all plain. The options are endless so completely unique to you.

So this will begin a new monthly feature in my blog, a way of sharing with you all what I have done with my month... and hopefully encourage you to run to your nearest Hobbycraft and grab the supplies to start one of your own!

Here is some spreads I have loved over the past two years.

December 2013: this was featuring the Studio Calico Subscription, You can embelish, cut and spend so much time getting an amazing look. I used to love spending 2-3 hours a week on these :)

August 2014: Sometimes its all about the photos. This was a day out to celebrate my Son's 3rd birthday and my cousins 17th. It was a sunny day at Blairdrummond. This took less than 2 minutes to complete. I think it looks fab! :)

October 2014: Family holiday in Tenerife, pictures up and looking fantastic, I love the mix with the bright colours during summer.

February 2015: This is more my style at the moment, simple with some embelishments, looks fab and documents everything the way I want to remember it. This was the Beauty Chat Live in Glasgow, was so lovely to meet LilyPebbles  & ViviannaDoesMakeup.

April 2015: a very typical normal week. Remembering moments that would have been forgotten about.

June 2015: Project life is also fab for storing tickets and other momentos. I try to include them as much as I can, this was from last month at the Corteeners. Was Such an amazing trip.

So there it is, look out for my latest month's update over the next few days. What do you think of it all? does it make you want to start your own? or do you already have one?

  1. I love project life! I'm a big of a craft freak when it comes to my planner, so I already have a LOT of journaling cards, washi and stickers. Maybe I should give it a go?
