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 31”, by Katie Rose.
There is nothing better than Bella Blvd for documenting a happy week! My husband had a near fatal heart attack at the end of June and ended up having open heart surgery. It was a really terrible and scary time. Fast forward one month to week 31 and we were celebrating his one month post-surgery date! It was a very happy and joyous occasion and I was so excited to use Bella Blvd to document this amazing week. I used lots of the new Tiny Tots line, proving how versatile this line is. I think it was just perfect for this week!

“Week 52”, by Wendy Antenucci.
I did it! I completed my first year doing Project Life and I am here today to show you my final spread. One year ago I started this album with the birth of our 6th; I wanted to make sure that we didn't miss any of our newest specials. Most weeks I just used one page to keep things simple. I did a few double page spreads as needed throughout the year. Color has been my main unifying focus to keep the facing pages looking attractive and like they fit. This is the last pages in my book and again I chose color to focus on first; I chose the Tiny Tots collection and pulled the blues and yellows to work with.
I first chose cards from the Daily Detail page that fit my theme best and figured out there placement. I filled in the other spots with some white cardstock that I then decorated with bits and pieces of the Tiny Tot collection. My next step was to find chipboard pieces that added interest/support to my page. Stickers are my next step in a spread; I love the variety that Bella Blvd offers and that they fit so nicely in the pockets.
I added a few cut words and some journaling as my last step. I plan on continuing Project Life as it allows me to get the everyday details documented, it encourages me to recognize the blessings in my every day, and it allows me more time to scrapbook only my favorite pictures/memories without feeling guilty about missing anything.
