Here We Go!

I did it!!   I got some supplies to start Project Life! Cause we all know that shopping for craft supplies is part of the fun! ;) I decided to try to keep the cost down & use a lot of what I already have. It may take me a bit longer but I think it will work. I did get some paper on sale that I plan to cut up to the correct size. I have a few done ahead, corners clipped & ready to go. I also grabbed some small note tags.

The things that I picked up were either on sale at 50% off or I used my 50% coupon at Michaels. I even grabbed a "Smash" date stamp. That was definitely a splurge. But hey...I used my coupon so it was only $2.50

I went ahead and put a few of the items in a cigar box that I had on hand. ( was from another project that I never completed) But I'm using it now...does that count? 

And last but not least I printed out things that went on this week. I do not have any photos yet but did write down a couple notes of a few pics I want to print. Unlike the week of Christmas I just don't have that many photos this week but I think it will work out just fine with the few I have and even a menu & some ephemera that I plan to include. All in all I am very happy with the result & just hope that I can keep it up!!


Here are a few shots of old scrapbooks where I have used a similar technique. I think it is the same idea as Project Life in that you use the multi-photo page protectors & some slots are left open for journaling, etc. I love how they add to the overall look of your scrapbooks. I always mix and match them with regular 12x12 pages. Taking it a stop further to Project Life seems like the great way to go. we go!!
