WFMW: Memory Keeping with Project Life


My friend Jessica from The Mom Creative is filling in for me today while I take a few days to tend to my daughter. You might remember her from her WFMW receipt organization post.

When Kristen asked me to write today, I was a little nervous. What could I share that both works for me and that would be helpful to many of you? As I considered a variety of ideas, the one that kept coming up in my mind was my system for memory keeping, Project Life.


Have you heard of it?

Y’all, if you haven’t, you are in for a treat today.

This memory keeping system has taken the crazy out of my scrapbooking and left me with thousands of photos in albums (and not sitting collecting dust on my hard drive). I love it so much and I am so excited to share it with you today.

Check out this super cute, super short video that does a perfect job of explaining Project Life.

As a mom who works full-time outside the home, I love that Project Life makes it easy for me to record my family’s memories. All you need to start are an album is a core kit (I’m using Jade this year), a 12×12 album and some page protectors (I recommend starting with the Big Variety Pack 2 ). I love using a bunch of different sized and style page protectors in my album. I typically buy my products on Amazon, but a bunch of retailers are now selling Project Life products too.

This is my fifth year doing a Project Life album to document my family’s story. In my album are photos, birthday invitations, Instagrams, school artwork, cards and so much more. All the memorabilia and different page protectors make it so much fun to look at.

Plus, like I said before, it’s easy. And that’s SO important.

    I really want to look into Project Life for my memory keeping. I scrapbooked my daughter’s first year – which took almost 2 years to do with Creative Memories and resulted in 4 very large 12×12 albums. Obviously, I don’t do that anymore, now I do Snapfish books, but I still like the “look” of scrapbooking. This might be my 2013 project…well, maybe 2014 ; )

    This looks GREAT! I will definitely check it out – I do a photo album for each season, but there are hundreds of awesome pictures that don’t get in those albums – and it makes me nervous to have them sitting out there on my hard drive!

    What a great idea! I’ve been procrastinating on my baby (now 20 months!) album for ages and with another little one due in a few weeks, this seems like the perfect solution to motivate me to get moving! Thanks for sharing.

    Phen375 is a synthetic diet plan capsule manufactured legally in FDA
    certified laboratory, California, from 2009. As of now, the only
    thing stopping everyone from using this safe weight loss
    product is its bad rep, and the only thing stopping you from
    actually taking this effective product is your idea that what they are saying is
    true. Only have a person tablet and never utilize
    far more.
