In January 2015, I decided to start scrapbooking using the Project Life system and it was the best decision I made that year. Without even realising it I managed to document some of the best trips I’ve ever been on and our pretty spectacular engagement, so there was no way I was giving it up in 2016. I still really love scrapbooking but have found I’ve settled into a style with my layouts which really makes things a lot easier (and I’m not hoarding supplies like a crazy person).
At the start of the year I bought the Liz Tamanaha Everyday Edition kit which is just the most perfect selection of cards to suite my style. I loved the challenge last year of creating layouts using a different colour theme every month, but there’s something about the cohesiveness of this year’s pages that just gives me old big heart eyes.
Can you tell I like black, white & gold? I love how this kit has those colours in abundance as well as some key accent colours which I can use when the mood strikes me. Here’s some of my favourite cards from the past few months.
I probably won’t be sharing my Project Life spreads every month like I did last year, but maybe every now and again I’ll pop in a post to share some of my favourite moments throughout the year. The main thing is, I love Project Life and there is absolutely no stopping me!
I enjoyed scrap booking so much last year that I’ve committed to doing it again in 2016! For Christmas I got a couple of Hobbycraft vouchers and what better to spend them on than Project Life 2016 supplies. I decided to get a new kit as well as an album and I finally settled on the Everyday Edition.
It’s so beautiful! This is the 12×12 album from the Everyday Edition designed by Liz Tamanaha. The gold plated hardware is a lovely touch and I really love the script on the front and spine.
Above is a selection of my favourite cards from the core kit. This kit comes with gold foil accents which is one of my favourite things about it! The cards are really well designed, with an extensive selection of filler and note cards.
I bought small variety pack 4 of the page protectors which comes with designs L, P, Q and R to mix up my layouts a bit. I also bought some full page 12×12 protectors to have a go at doing full layouts too! I’m pretty pumped up about continuing to scrapbook. I find it so therapeutic and going back through 2015’s album makes me smile so much! In 2016, the plan is to still have 2 pages per month with separate spreads for events like holidays and birthdays. I enjoyed doing December Daily in a separate album (which I’ll be sharing soon) so I might do the same this year. I want to add more mixed media into my spreads and challenge myself to do some full 12×12 layouts which I find a bit intimidating. That’s why I love Project Life so much – you have the ease of photo pockets when you have zero time to scrap but then when you do, you can really go all out with heavily designed cards and spreads. I’m probably not going to share each spread every month as I don’t know if it’s interesting to many of you so maybe I’ll only post the layout’s I’m really proud of. Anyway, there’s plenty more scrapbooking in my future!
