I decided it was time to add another pocket page spread to my (growing pile of scrapbook pages that I will hopefully put into) albums (one day)!
I haven’t been very consistent with scrapbooking this year, but I like that with a Project Life spread like this, I’m able to document a whole bunch of little stories all at once.
I cut all the filler cards from a sheet of mono-printed paper and I only used a couple of store-bought alphabet stickers. Everything else was die-cut with Elizabeth Craft Designs dies!
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FOR MY DUTCH READERS:
Els van de Burgt komt naar Nederland! Aanstaande zaterdag 5 september demonstreren Els van de Burgt, Anita Izendoorn en ik (!) deze prachtige nieuwe dies bij Doe@ding in Spijkenisse. Ik hoop je daar te zien!
The Oct/Nov 2013 issue of Scrap365 was a Project Life special and I contributed the PL-spread shown here. It might come as a surprise to you that I even have a Project Life, as I have never shown any of it here.
The honest fact is, that I don’t really have one. What I mean by that is that I started with one in October 2012 and that I did a fairly decent job documenting my life until at least two months into 2013 and then I just gave up. So… I have all the photographs (printed AND in the assigned pockets), I have all the stories, the memorabilia, the special PL-supplies… But I do not have a finished album.
I really like the concept of Project Life and I really like the fact that it’s a place to live for all the bits and pieces that I collect. But the harsh reality is that it turned me into a hoarder of random stuff and that it’s just way more work to keep it up than I’m willing to invest.
That said… I really love this spread and I remember that when I completed it, I really was motivated to go on with the weeks that followed. I didn’t, but now that this spread has come home, I am tempted to finish at least a couple more. If I do, I will treat them as a ‘Week in the Life‘ and just add them to my regular albums.
I also have a bunch of pocketed page protectors left. Thankfully not a years supply though! I have vague plans for those… And I will fill you in about those plans, when the time comes!
