Project Life 2014: Weeks 36 and 38

Happy Tuesday, it's time to share some Project Life pages! I don't know about you, but even four years in, I am still loving Project Life. I think what I enjoy most about Project Life is that you can change it up anytime you want. Take me for example, after over 3.5 years of working working 12 x 12 inch page protectors, I am now switching things up to a Studio Calico Handbook for the rest of the year. That means my album is now roughly 6x8 inches. I am having fun playing around in a smaller size. It is so freeing to know that I can use different page sizes, different albums. weekly pages, monthly pages, or whatever, and regardless my family and my story are documented.

If you are curious what my fall Project Life album looks like, I shared the first few pages last week HERE and will have another post up later this week showing more of my handbook. THIS is the album, I am using and I am loving it!

Week 36

This week of Project Life was created using the Studio Calico Poet Society Project Life Kit
I also shot a video of how I put together this layout. That will be live on 
My You Tube Channel later today. I hope you like it! Please consider 
subscribing channel, I would sure appreciate it.  :-)

Week 38:

 The left side also incorporated two cards from the Project Life app (the large date award card 
and the 3x4 journal card.) I just printed those two out and then added a few simple 
embellishments to one and some hand journaling to the other. I even added a flair 
pumpkin from my Etsy shop. You can find the
Pumpkins and Pineapples Flair Set HERE.

The right side of this layout was made almost entirely using the new Project Life app. 
I edited and printed my photos using the app and all from the comfort of my family 
room couch. I worked on this spread while my family and I watched a movie 
together. I found the app easy to use and a lot of fun. 

My thoughts on the Project Life App

While I don't plan on giving up paper scrapbooking anytime soon, I do plan on using this app to print out artwork and keepsakes that my kids bring home from school. It will be such a time saver to just take a quick photo using my I-phone, print most things at 3x4 inches, and slip it in a pocket. I have a lot of school memorabilia I need to catch up on. I will be writing a blog post sometime in November about my children's scrapbooks. This will include organizing them, and including school memorabilia and other momentos. If there is anything else you would like me to touch on in that post (or another Project Life post,) please leave your questions or ideas in the comments below.
