Project Life is everywhere these days, in many shapes and forms. Whether you create full Project Life albums, a few Project Life inspired layouts/spreads here and there, or even simply working Project Life style products (such as Bella's new Daily Details papers) onto your everyday layouts, there are so many ways to incorporate this popular style into your designs. We are asking our designers to be inspired by Project Life, and show us how they work that inspiration onto their own pages.
Week 1 & 2, by Wendy Antenucci.
I began Weeks 1 & 2 by pulling my color choices out; since I chose teal and red it went perfectly with the hello Autumn collection. I chose my cards to best suit the pictures I had from the weeks and arranged them to my liking.
I love adding in a few pieces of chipboard as it adds dimension and interest without too much problems with the page protectors. I then begin to glue my pieces down and make sure I like my arrangement. Next, it is sticker time. Oh how I love all the Bella Blvd stickers! They really are perfect for PL, both in size and content. Once my stickers are in place I add in my title, on Weeks 1 & 2 I really didn't have room enough for a whole title card so since I had pictures that I wanted to include that had a lot of white space I added my title to these pages. I then dated my journaling card and wrote my thoughts for the week.
I spend normally an hour on 2 weeks and while I could be scrapping a layout and playing, I am so glad that I have a finished album for us to look at. We don't have a lot of special events, but the everyday is why I scrapbook because it is worth remembering.

“You’re My Favorite Dude”, by Stephanie Buice.
I'm not a routine Project Lifer, I usually do one spread a month if I have time but I don't put pressure on myself to keep up with it. When I've got lots going on in a month many times I find myself taking a few pictures from an event and making a project life style layout instead of an entire spread. It works perfect for me and it still allows me to get at least something in my album for that particular month.
