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 27 | June 30 - July 6", by Leanne Allinson.
Week 27 was a very busy week for my family. I had a high volume of photos to include plus several significant events to record! And because of the complexity of all these events, I needed to use colours that would be universal across the spread. Luckily for me, all of the Bella Blvd collections compliment each other!
I chose a neutral base of grays from the Scattered Sprinkles and Lucky Starz collections and added pops of bright yellow and pickle juice green. My highlight colour is the beautiful ice blue, found in the die cut bow, my son's shirt and various stickers on the two pages.
I have designed Week 27 to include clusters of related photos. This week my daughter performed in a large professional production of CATS the Musical. Included along with the journaling about this adventure for her, I have layered several elements, drawing the eye to the Molly Candid Card 'fox' image. This cute little guy, for all given purposes, has now been labelled a cat!
Also during the week I took my boys to visit the Museum, my husband and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary and my youngest son turned five. To document all these events I have happily combined Bella's latest collections with some older ones found in my stash. I just love how you are never limited when using Bella Blvd products.

“Family Time At Seven Peaks”, by Wendy Sue Anderson.
We like to buy season passes to the local(ish) water park, so every summer we spend several days there – sliding, splashing, relaxing, and just soaking up the sun before the long, cold winter returns! I usually don’t take my camera or phone into the water park with me, but I try to remember to take it at least once or twice so I will have photos to record our fun times!
As you can imagine, these photos are often super busy, and always very colorful. When it comes time to scrapbook the photos, I figure I have two choices – use very neutral papers and accents so they don’t compete with the photos, or embrace the colors and chaos, and just go with it! As you can see here, I’ve opted for the second choice – it’s much more fun!!
