Memory Keeping

It’s time for the April edition of Keep It Together, co-hosted by the lovely Alexandra. If you have any posts about planning, scrapbooking, Project Life, memory keeping, etc. please link up with us below! We’d love to have you every third Thursday of the month!

Keep It Together: April 2019

Alexandra has sold me on trying out Project Life for my scrapbook needs. I used to scrapbook a lot more often, but it’s been years since I’ve really focused on it (though I did make a scrapbook as a wedding gift last Fall). Ever since I started reading Alexandra’s posts about Project Life, I’ve wanted to try it out because I feel like it will allow me to still preserve these memories in a fun way but without as much work – or creativity- involved (which isn’t always my strong suit!)

Project Life Supplies

I haven’t started my album yet, but I did collect the supplies to begin. I’m going to make a Project Life album for my London trip, and don’t worry – I’ll share my progress along the way!

This is the album that I got. I actually saw one that was travel themed, but this album came with a fun kit and the other didn’t, so I figured this was a better deal. I actually got it on Zulily, a site I love for fun deals! The album also came with the pages where you insert pictures and cards, like the ones below.

This is the Charming kit that I got with the album. I don’t know how much of these cards I can use for the album, but I liked the look of it – and I can always save things for a future album.

This other kit was actually the first Project Life item that I bought – it’s the Travel edition of cards, so perfect for my London book, and I got it for sale at Tuesday Morning. I love that all of my items so far have been from deals!

Until Next Time…

There you go! I have everything to finally get started on my first Project Life album. As I said above, I’ll share updates in future Keep It Together posts, so keep an eye out! I’d love any tips or tricks if you’ve made Project Life albums before.

Now, if you have your own post, don’t forget to link up!

  1. Oh so fun! I love the striped album. The good thing about the cards is that they all coordinate and you will have tons to choose from! I never ever ever finish a pack! LOL. They can be fun to make into other albums later or to cut up and be creative once you finish an album! I hope you have so much fun! I have a bunch of YouTube videos obviously, so feel free to watch those if you need some tips or just want to get inspired by watching someone make their pages. I did this back when I started and it really motivated me! Good luck! I am so excited for you!! 🙂 XO – Alexandra

  2. I know people who have really loved the Project Life scrapbooks and take off with them. It was never my jam but I’m trying to find a way to document my daily health because I can’t remember what’s going on between appointments.

  3. I used to scrapbook a lot before I had my two little ones. I even had a large desk with a great set up..but alas, my children needed a bedroom. I keep meaning to get back into it.

  4. I like the kit you got! I can’t wait to see how your London album will turn out! Every time I see these posts I’m reminded I should really get back to finishing the baby scrapbook I made for Oliver. You know, my five year old? LOL.

  5. I love stuff like this! If it wasn’t for the girls’ mom’s diligence in getting memories preserved this way, they could be lost forever. There are so many creative ways to present them, too. Have fun!

  6. What a neat concept! I can’t wait to see your completed book for London. I used to scrapbook, but I put away my craft table and now I just never get it out any more.
