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.

Bella's new Snapshots line is perfect for your Project Life pages! This entire spread is done with all Bella Blvd, the only thing I added from my stash were sequins. Some of my favorite elements are the 'update status' card, which I used to type out one of my Facebook statuses. I also love the 'captured' 3x4 card and the black and white doodles which I colored with a few markers. Be sure to try out these new collections in your PL album soon!

“Week Nine”, by Katherine McElvain.
Yippie, Bella has products that are perfect for project life! I always like using the Bella alphabets in my project life album and now with the new products there is even more Bella fun to be had. I especially enjoyed using the Snapshots collection, and it inspired me to do some doodling in my album for this week. I added some doodles by tracing the preprinted letters and symbols from the Snapshots images. My other favorite new product for project life are the arrows. It is great to use them to help give direction, to connect my journaling or titles to my images or photos. And the colors were easy to work with as usual!

“Cabo 2013”, by Diane Payne.
The Daily Details papers are inspired by the Project Life concept but work wonderfully with a traditional scrapbook page too. I used 3 pieces as design elements and for the subtitle above my photo. I customized the 4x6 doodle image with Gelato crayons for a watercolor effect.
