Starting Project Life

photo

I have always been tempted to start some kind of scrapbook but had never really been attracted to the amount of fuss that goes along with it so when a blogger I follow, Elise Blaha Cripe, started sharing her Project Life spreads, I was intrigued. The system, developed by Becky Higgins, uses plastic wallets which fit photos and printed cards for journalling and decoration. It’s simple, modern and attractive. I love it already. Last night, I spent some time on my first two spreads and I really pleased with them. I will get some washi tape (all of mine is in storage) to embellish and label the photos and be on the look out for fun stamps and stickers but otherwise, nothing else is really needed.

These are Week 1 28 July – 3 August:

Happy Independence Day to all my American readers! I am very excited that in just a month and a bit, we will be flying over the pond to visit our American family in Massachusetts to celebrate my auntie and uncle’s 50th wedding anniversary. We are staying on Cape Cod, an area we ┬áhave never been before. Because of my course, I had barely let myself think about the trip because I didn’t want to get distracted by the excitement but now I am finished, I can’t wait to start planning and researching. It’s going to be so much fun!
