project life 2012 cover page

This year I am so excited to be doing Project Life.  Wait.  Let me clarify.  Matt and I are so excited for me to be doing project life.  Project Life is a system created by Becky Higgins that helps you to focus on the everyday life.  It helps you focus on the stories that happen in the small moments, not just the big ones.
I could explain the ins and outs of it but Lisa does it much better than I can.  Matt is thrilled about this project because already we are remembering the small stories in 2012 - the little things that would escape our memory if they weren't documented.  I love it for this reason but I also enjoy playing with paper. :)

So here is my title page for Project Life 2012.

Becky Higgins sells kits with patterned cards to fit the pockets.  I chose to use my stash because I always get new product but am never able to use it all on traditional layouts.  This title page is pretty straight forward.  It is a nice mix of October Afternoon, plenty of washi tape, left over Amy Tangerine, and some Studio Calico.  For my pictures, I'm using my iPhone, my Nikon, and my wonderful little Instax Mini that Matt got me for Christmas.

And here is the reason I'm doing Project Life this year....



  1. Hey I just read about her Project Life products right before the new year, so I've been taking pictures but didn't really know if I wanted to buy the products. Yours looks sooooo beautiful! Perfect year for you to do this!

  2. Thanks, Deb! I didn't buy any of her products but I will be buying the design a page protector when they are in stock. I'm using an American Crafts D-ring album (they are less than $20) and my own stash of supplies. I also bought some awesome downloadable journaling cards that I'll be sharing here as well.

  3. I love your book, your project! God bless you Ellie.
