Project Life Everyday Adventure

Project Life by Stampin’ Up!  A revolutionary way of memory keeping.  Photos and cards into pockets.  It worked!

I started out with just the basics:  a pile of photos and memorabilia, my 12 x12 album, pocket page protectors, card collection and journaling pens.

I organized the photos into groups for each page, picked the best pocket protector page  for the orientation (there are 6 options) and slipped them into pockets.  I added some journaling cards from my Everyday Adventure Card Collection.

That was sooo simple.

I used my Project Life journaling pens and my Project Life stamp sets to add in some titles and journaling.

I even got brave and rearranged some photos and pages (easy) and added embellishments from my Everyday Adventure Accessory Pack.

I then printed out some more photos and did pages from Labor Day weekend while it was fresh in my mind (and before I misplaced the tickets and maps from the weekend).

Today’s Tips:

– use Post-it-Notes to hold a spot for a misplaced photo or item (page1).

-use the Cards and Labels framelits to cut photos to fit the smaller pockets (4×4 and 3×4).

-Memorabilia – some will need to be cut down, some adhered to a card.  Or use a full 6×8 or 12×12 protector for larger items.

-Yes, the 6×8 pages will fit nicely in the 12×12 books for interest.

-Cut a 4×6 photo in half to fill 2 smaller pockets (page3).

-Cut a map with the Cards and Labels framelits to add to a pocket.

-The Labels framelits and the Word Bubbles framelits make nice title and journaling pieces.  Attach with SNAIL adhesive or some Washi tape.
