Friday Faves – July 5, 2013

Hey everyone! It’s Friday! So what things am I going to share with you today? Well, first off, let me say, I’m late writing this post today because I was busy playing with my littlest bug! The kids are visiting with family for most of the next few days but my little guy is too small to play in the ocean so he’s back home for awhile today. My point is that I usually don’t have a great deal of free time but when I do, I enjoy scrapbooking (I’m pretty sure that’s not a surprise to any of you by this point). With so little time and such a passion for scrapbooking, what does one use to capture and record all those wonderful memories?

I bet you know where I’m going with this! Yes, Project Life and all the other pocket page style scrapbook products out there! As you know, I also love to work both digitally and physically with paper, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone when I tell you that I have almost all of the “official” Project Life kits digitally and five (yes, FIVE) paper Project Life core kits! Why? Well, partly because I love the designs and I have a scrapbook hoarder personality! Mostly though it’s because I love the idea that if I’m pressed for time, I can drop my photos, a few cards and a little writing onto a page and it looks wonderful! Sometimes just doing that looks better then when I keep playing around with a page for days!

I really love that this way of scrapbooking has taken off. With any great idea you run into true copy cats but I think that many designers (both paper and digital) have really expanded on this concept and given us so many options! I’ve also got some SN@P products in my paper stash, I have other designers’ P365/Journal Card products in my digital files, and I’m excited to use it all! So today’s post is all about how much I love these products! Did you get through all that text? Okay, lets look at some fun pictures!

Here is a picture of my current “official” Project Life stash:

And there’s a picture of some of my SN@P products, these are for my oldest son’s Disney album that I hope to work on with him this summer:

Lastly, here are some of my favorite digital products I like to use with my Project Life albums, I’m not including all of the “official” Project Life kits (which you can find at AC Digitals) because I really want to share some of the OTHER great products I use to supplement my “official” stash:

I’m pretty sure you knew I’d include M&M Designs’ Project Life Journal Card line! Since I’m on her Creative Team, I’m lucky enough to get to work with these great templates, this one was just released today! Take a look at the layout on the top right, that’s the one I made using this template and Inspiredbydominic’s “A New Day” kit and Corky V1 styles:

Another product that I love, and a designer who’s team I’m not on, is Scrapping with Liz’s “Time Table Templates”. They are set up to record “Day in the Life” layouts but are flexible enough to be used for weekly layouts too:

I also love how some designers are creating 4″x6″ templates. It’s nice to have a template for one of my pictures pockets especially if I want to add multiple pictures to that spot. Scrapping with Liz also has some 4″x6″ templates but the ones I just saw from ChrissyW Digital (who’s team I’m also on) really gets me excited!

So, in honor of today’s Friday Fave, I’m going to enjoy my day, and most likely the weekend, working on my Project Life pages! I’ll make sure to share them with you all next week! Enjoy your weekend dear readers and as always…

  1. Scrapbook Hoarder Personality…Hahahahaha!!! Have you been professionally diagnosed with SHP? I’m sure I could have been diagnosed with RSHP when I was heavy into Rubber Stamping! Funny post, thanks for sharing. 😀

  2. I’ve always wanted to learn the art of scrapbooking. The designs all look so good when they’re done. Guess I’m just going to have to satisfy myself by looking at yours. Have a great weekend!

  3. I am so excited that I found your blog! I just discovered project life last week and decided to start using some to make scrapbooks for my daughters. I can’t wait to learn more about it and get some great ideas!

    1. So glad you found me here! Congratulations on starting down this incredible journey! There are some great Facebook groups too, let me know if you want some recommendations! =)
