I'm using this adorable 5th and Frolic Edition. The girls helped me pick it out and I'm in luuuuuv!
Here's a little sample of the title cards :) Aren't they cute?
Here's a peek at week number one, which was really just a few days. Super easy!!
And week number two, which has some personal journaling, hence the super sneaky camera angle. Ha.
So, for my process. I load up my book with my page protectors. I only use one 12x12 page protector for one week. Two is too much for me :) So for a whole year, that's about 30 page protectors, give or take. Then I go back through and add all of the title cards. I just take the stack, right out of the box and rotate them through the book. SUPER easy.
Then I go back with a few Sharpies and add the week number and the dates. And then I go back and add the journaling cards, using my same stack and rotate method (see above, haha) This year, I worked on the whole process on a Sunday afternoon while Mike and I watched a movie.
Now, my whole book, FOR THE ENTIRE year, is done. All it needs is pictures and words. I just have to add three pictures a week. I take all my pictures with my cell phone and print from my Selphy. I write in my planner, a few notes, every day about what we did or what is going on. So when I sit down to work on my Project Life, I print my photos out and work on my journaling. By the time my photos are done printing, I'm usually about done with my journaling and can slip the photos into the page protectors. SO EASY!!
The best part about this project is that it's recording our everyday. I was in such a scrapbook slump, only taking pictures of the major holidays and now I'm getting all this awesome stuff!
So, I hope I helped someone that was maybe thinking PL seemed like too much or like they couldn't or didn't want to take it on. I know it's not for everyone :)
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you're having a good week!
