Project Life

So, I got myself all enamoured with Project Life last year – the scrapbook documenting life a week at a time.  I don’t get the time to scrapbook much these days, but I desperately want to record our day to day life, and this seemed perfect.  The official kits, however, were expensive, and a bit limiting, and I just knew I’d never get around to actually cutting and pasting anything.

In the end, I decided to go digital.  I’m becoming more proficient with Photoshop these days, and I love the idea of printing all the pages as a photobook at the end of the year.  Typical of me, though, I put it off and put it off, wanting to find the ‘perfect’ way to do it… until today I bit the bullet and just did it.  I’m going to keep it simple, and just get it done.  And I have to say, I’m loving the first week.  Although I did have a lot of photos to choose from because we were away… I think the next couple of weeks might be challenging as I so often forget to take photos.

I won’t be sharing every week, but here is week one.

And the separate pages:

Now, to catch up and keep up!  I’m hoping it will get quicker as I go – I’ve been editing templates and making actions to speed up the process.  I think it will be worth it at the end of the year, don’t you?

  1. Good luck with your project. Looks great! I’m trying to do Project 366 this year (damn leap year with one extra day!) with a photo a day and also make a photo book at the end of the year. I think we get so busy with life we forget the little things that make it all up and these projects are a great way to remind us!

  2. They look so great. I’ve just been making some monthly photo books for our family (through Snapfish). I love the idea of the single sentence descriptions for each day though.

  3. Which software did you use? I have used the smilebox software if feeling creative, you can choose scrap-booking like embellishments, but recently I used the generic software at http://www.getdigital.com.au which prints as well with a nice hard cover, I love how for all your hard work you can print multiple copies for family members! I think id find a daily commitment a bit much, but a monthly section would be nice! It really is worth making the time the kids LOVE looking through and re-living all the great moments!

I'd love to hear from you!
