Project Life Pocket Page Scrapbooking

Project Life Pocket Page Scrapbooking is what we have for you today. If you are a long time scrapbooker, new to it or have put your creative juices on hold, I have something to get you back into the groove! Project Life Pocket Page Scrapbooking is an awesome way to document your life and also enable you to get your memories and pictures in albums.

I was inspired to start making scrapbook pages again!

I went to an AWESOME crop on Saturday that was hosted by our fantastically talented Creative Crew Member Leticia and her friend Esther.

*If you are in So Cal and are interested in attending, click on Leticia’s Facebook Page HERE become a fan and you will be notified when she has an event.

When I was getting ready, I needed to get some projects together to do. I realized it had been a while and I really needed to get back into the swing of things. The crop was SO much fun! Both Brandie and Rhoda joined me as well. Brandie was on our CC and Rhoda still is and it was a blast to spend some quality time with the girls!

With Project Life Pocket Page Scrapbooking, it can be as easy or as complicated as you want to make it.

You can simply use a kit and put your page together with a specific theme or create your own pages using embellishments, 3-D items, memorabilia and whatever else you wish. There are other companies that offer similar things that can be used for Project Life Scrapbooking as well. The above pocket pages are made by We R Memory Keepers. They have a while line that allows you to document your life with Pocket Page Scrapbooking. They have numerous different page. Project Life also has different configurations and the page insert collections vary.

This is the cover of my Project Life Book. I really liked how it was not gender bias. I can often times only find albums that have more feminine colors. Normally masculine colors and designs aren’t available so I was thrilled to find this one as I think it covers both.

I really love how my Project Life album came with an album protector! This makes it so that the pages don’t get bound up in the three ring binder aspect of the album.

It is a harder plastic piece and it has a cool quote on it too. Be sure to keep it in front as it will help to avoid any pages being damaged or bent. I am not sure that all of them come with it but I bought this at Michaels and it did.

The first page I did was pretty simple to complete.

I used one 4 x 6″ card from a kit I had and it only took about a half hour, if that. What took the longest time in the whole creation of the page was the punching out of the pictures. I used the punch from We R Memory Keepers which punches out pictures to the perfect size for 3 x 2 pictures. You can choose to have rounded corners or squared punch. Depending on which project I am working on will depend on which one I use.

This is the left side of a two page spread for my youngest son Austin’s birthday.

I don’t really care for the quality of the photos but I have to document his birthday so of course, I kept them anyway. These pictures were taken with a disposable camera. When he turned 1 which was almost 16 years ago, they didn’t have cool filters, overlays and decor like they do now for your pictures. I bought this disposable camera that had the phrases on it specifically for his birthday. MY HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED, RIGHT?

For Austin’s first birthday, this is the right side of the two page spread.

This took a little longer with the cutting and I made an outline that makes the page look like a cake. My favorite picture is the bottom right where my oldest snuggles with my youngest. This is the EXACT reason why I have to get on the ball and start scrapbooking my pictures. I have plenty to keep me busy for a very long time.

This page is a little bit more detailed but still very simple to create.

I used 3-D pop dots for the top left and right pockets to give some dimension for the cards glued on top of the larger card. My choice for writing was lined cards. To add some interest, I chose to write the story straight across rather than have the first, second and third one read.  I thought it gave a nice flow to the page. I used my old fashioned label maker using yellow label tape I create two labels. Beach Walking for the left side bottom and with Daddy for the right side on the bottom. Although it isn’t extravagant in it’s creation, I do like how it is dressed up a little bit but still my style of CAS – Clean and simple.

There are a number of different kits you can get for various themes.

I really liked this one and thought it was pretty versatile although it is meant for a boy. The majority of the cards can be used for many different layouts. Kits typically come with 4 x 6″ cards and 3 x 2″ cards with two of each. You could share with friends or create two books like I need to for my kids.

This is what came in the kit.

There are numerous cards and I do not have them fanned out to show every single one. The picture to the right shows you what is all included in the kit.

    I’m happy to see you showcase the Project Life cards and layout because this is something I’ve been meaning to try with my own scrapbooking. I am so, so far behind and PL is an easy way to document everyday life in a simple, fun way. LOVE the way you journaled across the page! It ties the photos together so well and flows nicely. Good for you, scrapping those less-than-perfect photos. Many of mine were taken in the 1980’s, so you can imagine the poor quality, but these memories are still treasured so I use the photos anyway. Thanks for a peek at the process!! I follow you on Youtube and by email!
