Project Life ~ My Process & Favorite tool’s

This past year I have learned a lot about how I like to document, everyone documents differently,  has their own way and the favorite tools! I want to share with you my process and how I go from an empty page protector to a finished album page. I’m also going to share my favorite tools to enhance and create beautiful pocket pages!


My Process

Daily, weekly or monthly ?  I Document monthly, I find this way a whole lot easier than weekly.

My process is simple, Step 1 I pick my favorite photos from my phone or laptop, decide before printing where I want them to be on my layout . This helps me narrow down the quantity of photos.  Once iv picked them I will then use the Becky Higgins Project life app to crop them to size.

Step 2 Once my photos have been printed I will then place them in my page protector and find filler cards and journaling cards to match. I will pick out colours that are featured in the photos and match them up to the cards I want to use.

Step 3 Normally after a few days I will come back to my layout and add writing and embellishments to the page. I do this so I can look at it with a fresh pair of eyes and have a clearer idea on how I want the page to look.

Favourite tool’s 

  • Becky Higgins Project life app –  This App has been a life saver, i use this app ever time i need to print my photos. It makes me cropping my images down to 4×6 cards a whole lot easier!
  • Fuse Tool – The fuse tool was a christmas gift so I haven’t had it a long time, but it has quickly become one of my favourite thing! This is how I use it!

I use the fuse tool to make clear pockets like the one on this page! I fill them with small embellishments!

  • Home printer – Since buying myself a printer in the black Friday sales it’s really helped me stay up to date with my documenting!

What is your process for documenting? What are your favouite tools?

Project life ~ Update

Hi Guys, as with any new hobby no matter how may youtube videos you watch to get inspiration you have to ways find your own style.

I wanted my album to be simple, the forces to be on the photos. I didn’t want to embellish every page, but this made me think is it going to be too simple/boring? Well now Iv completed a few more pages I’m really happy with the final outcome and I thought I would update you with my layouts!

Last week I, was away in Cornwall on a camping holiday with my Partner and sister, the weather was gorgeous and I was able to capture some amazing views and moments,  so as soon as I was home I printed out a few shots from my iPhone. (I still have few to edit from my camera but I was to excited to wait! ) Here are my Cornwall pages.

 

Please feel free to share your Project life layouts, tips & tricks or if you have any comments on the pages iv shared with you! I love hearing from you!

Project life ~Part 1

At the beginning of the year I made a resolution to become better at photography, so far Iv been loving the photos iv been taking which has made me create a photography gallery  right here on WordPress. This wasn’t enough for me though, I needed a more creative way to document my progress. And thats when I found Project life!

For the past few years iv been a big scrapbooker, but now iv become bored of my photos not being the main focus.  Project life is different, Instead of embellishments, glue and spending hours to get the best layout, all you do is put a photo in a pocket!

I wanted share with you my first pages, Im really enjoying this new hobby of mine and this has really become my favourite ways of documenting! Its so easy and looks so much more professional then other scrapbooks iv made in the past!

I love the way these pages have turned out, I cant wait to share more pages with you all! Please feel free to leave your comments on my pages or ask questions about project life. Also if you have been project lifeing for along time i would love hear your tips and tricks!

Ill be posting about where I got my binder and pocket pages soon!
