Hey, friends! Do you scrapbook? I’m six months into 2016 with my Project Life Album. I have loved all 4 of my Project Life albums. Working on them has been incredibly rewarding, but this year’s album has been one of the easiest to put together.
This has been a blessing because about March this year when we weren’t ever in one spot. We were constantly traveling and this whole scrapbooking each week would have gone down the drain. I’ve been using the Project Life App this year to organize, document, and layout our pages. It is easy and convenient and allows me to still print out my pages at home.
But I’m really happy to report that using the Project Life App has kept me on track this year. Even if I didn’t print the pages out right away I still put them together and got it ready for printing. It is awesome that the app is right on my phone which happens to be with me all the time and is where 90% of our new photos are stored.
This means I can put together the pages wherever I happen to be and it only takes about 10 minutes to do a layout. You then have the option of printing directly from the app or saving to print at home. I like printing them myself for several reasons. I get the pages in my book right away and I only have to print out two pages for each week. When in the past I was printing 4 – 6 pages for a week’s spread.
The 8 x 8 size has also been awesome, I was worried that the pictures would feel small and that you would miss out on detail but that just isn’t true. It’s a great size and I can still print from my standard photo printer which rocks.
If you have yet to check out the Project Life App and scrapbooking system you totally should! It is great how easy and beautiful my scrapbooks come together. It is so easy that I’m creating my scrapbook each week instead of waiting til the end of the year. I’m able to put it together when I remember the events that I’ve photographed. And at the end of the year, I have a completed album. Which is the best feeling.
Project Life has been one of the best projects I’ve worked on and I’m so thankful that Gunnar enjoys them too because even if I feel a little tired of it, he is there cheering me on because he loves looking back at our memories too!
P.S. In the last picture where Gunnar is making all those silly faces, that is the best part of this whole project. I’m so grateful that he is willing to be in pictures with me. Even if he has a funny face (which honestly makes it more fun), but he always gives me at least one good one in a series. I often put the goofy ones in instead of the standard ones because it is just more fun that way.
