I have resolved in 2015 to get more of my old photos scrapped. A lot of the photos I am referring to are random photos of every day life that have been overlooked when creating traditional scrapbook layouts of the bigger moments in our lives like birthdays, holidays, etc. Once I go through and make my traditional layouts, I have these leftovers photographs just laying around. I want to get them out of my temporary storage albums or off of my desk and into their permanent homes. So, 2015 is the year.
With Project Life, I Still Get To Be As Creative As I Want To Be
Project Life and pocket page scrapbooking have been my saving grace for this New Year’s resolution and I have to say I am loving every minute of it. Not only am I enjoying the process of creating scrapbook pages with Project Life and pocket pages, but the sense of accomplishment that I am feeling as my photos reach their final resting place is huge. I thought I would miss creating traditional scrapbook pages…the creativity, the pretty paper, the putzing around with embellishments. I am happy to say that I can do all of this, and more, with Project Life and my pocket pages. I scrapbook to enjoy the journey and embrace the process. It is my sweet escape and I feel no need to rush. With Project Life, I still get to be as creative as I want to be (or not) , and I get a lot of scrapbook pages completed. I have yet find a downside to doing both!
The new year phenomena and cabin fever have propelled me into the depths of my scrapbooking space and the results are completed layouts that I love…clean and simple, not to mention disappearing piles of photos from my desk. Indeed, good things are happening!
A huge shout out to Becky Higgins, Project Life, Simple Stories Sn@p, and W R Memory Keepers for helping to expand my love for scrapbooking into new and enjoyable territory. It has been and will continue to be a game changer for me as I document and create the stories of our beautiful mess!
Until next time,
