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 40" & "Week 41", by Wendy Antenucci.
I love to do Project Life. It takes a little bit of time from my layout scrapbooking, but it allows me to document the everyday moments and not feel guilty for only layout scrapping my absolute favorite memories/pictures. I started doing Project Life when our 6th child was born because I wanted to make sure I didn't miss any moments. To keep it simple for me, I only do a one page spread for each week; although I do throw in two page spread for special events as needed. Because I have two weeks next to each other in my book I make sure that I carry colors throughout both spreads. For these weeks, I chose to focus on bright colors - greens, yellows, reds, blacks and I chose to use the fun words I cut out as another unifying element. The stickers from the different collections are great for PL because you can ALWAYS find just the right sentiment. Pen work is another method I use to add details to my spreads without adding any bulk.

“Wedding Day”, by Jen Chesnick.
While I don't do Project Life a lot I do love the style of Project Life. So for this layout I focused on the smaller items, 3x4 photos, embellishments that could fit into the small pockets and a more clustered rectangle design. I used a mixture of Love and Marriage and Engaged At Last to document my baby sister’s wedding day. This photo of her and my daughter is one of my favorites.
