The Benefits of Digital Project Life

The Benefits of Digital Project Life

Project Life is a fabulous simple system to get photos scrapbooked and stories told, whether you are a paper or digital scrapbooker. The new collections coming out (baby and childhood) in addition to the new core kits make it easy to create beautifully coordinated pages with minimal effort. That being said, I think going the digital route has some distinct advantages. The Advantages of Digital Project Life 1. Templates are the best thing that ever happened to digital scrapbooking, and there are so many Project Life digital templates to choose from. No more spending hours designing the perfect layout.

My Complete 2012 Project Life Album

My Complete 2012 Project Life Album

I placed my biggest Persnickety Prints order to date at the beginning of the year… 95 prints! It was a very happy day when the rest of my 2012 (and 2011) layouts arrived in the mail. It really is my favorite mail, Christmas cards aside. I can’t tell you how good it felt to slide the layouts into my completed 2011 and 2012 albums. I don’t think I’ve ever been this caught up since I started Project Life in 2009! I did quite a poor job of keeping up with my layouts in 2011 and 2012, something I hope to remedy in…

Tutorial: Creating A Digital Project Life Layout

Last week, after posting this photo of my recent Persnickety Prints order on Facebook, I received multiple comments asking how I create my pages. Today I am going to walk you through the process, but before I do that, how fantastic are the layouts from Persnickety Prints?! They even look good photographed on my iPhone. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Persnickety Prints. They have been exclusively printing my layouts for two years now and their quality is unmatched. Did I mention I received my layouts three days after placing my order? Amazing. If you have never used Persnickety…

Project Life 2012 | January

Project Life 2012 | January

This is my fourth year of participating in P365, or Photo-of-the-Day, or Life in Photos, or Project Life. Whatever you call it, capturing (mostly) daily photos of my family and our life is my passion. I love documenting the little bits of life that make our life special. That being said, I’ve never been an official “Project Life” participant. The idea is exactly the same, but I have used a mishmash of other products for the last three years instead of Becky Higgins’ paper products. (Remember, I’m a digital girl.) However, I have been worn down. I have seen literally…
