Project Life Christmas

Are you  preparing for Christmas? Have you created your layouts for last year? If you’re like me you’re running a bit behind schedule. Project Life offers the perfect solution. It is a quick and easy way to get your memories into an album.

My pages are all really simple because I have 5 children to create pages for as well as doing our family album. I also love to scrapbook traditionally and that is my main focus. I want to dedicate as much time as possible to traditional scrapbooking. If I can do Project Life with 5 kids you can give it a go too. Imagine the memories you’ll be able to leave your children.

Last year we had my daughter’s kindy graduation. As the journaling says, when did that begin to happen? I know it is the next phase of education but seriously.

Christmas Project Life

Are you enjoying all the Christmas projects? You will have arrived from Paula and her fantastic project.

I’ve been doing Project Life for many, many years now. I love to document Christmas time because for us it is a time of tradition and a very special time in our family.

I used the Seasonal Snapshot Project Life card collection and the Seasonal Snapshot Project Life Accessory Pack to complete these pages. The only other items I added were the Festival of Trees bundle to add a bit of detail to my Christmas tree pages, the Handheld Stapler because I just love the look of the staples and they fit really well with the school pages I had to do.

These first pages I kept very simple showing you how easy Project Life can be.

I thought I would include a close up of my journaling just to show the different ways you can journal.

Here I used StazOn to add the day to the photo. I love StazOn. It is a fantastic ink. Just make sure you clean your stamps properly after use and don’t use your Stampin’ Scrub to clean off the StazOn .

I am thinking I should do a review of the Project Life Journaling Pens because over the years I have used a lot of different pens to journal with. These are fantastic and I love that you get 2 different sizes in the pack. They just write so well.

Here I have used the So Social stampset and a card from the kit which I didn’t want to use. I cut the card into banners after I stamped the words. Don’t be afraid to alter or cut up your cards.

I added the staples from the Handheld Stapler to the banners and a dimensional under the banner end to give it some dimension and give the appearance of real banners.

Here is the Festival of Tree bundle in use to add a little detail to a simple Project Life card. Don’t you just love a coordinating stampset and punch?

I kept these pages fairly simple because I have a lot of photos from Christmas and December last year and I have 6 Project Life albums to complete for that period. This year I plan on being prepared and doing a December Daily album using the new 6×8’ album and getting most of it completed before December begins that way with the rush of the crazy season I will be up to date. 

Now head on over to Ria’s blog.
