100+ Free Printable Project Life Journaling Card Insert Sets

Printable Project Life Cards

Have you been bitten by the Project Life bug? If you haven’t heard of it yet, Project Life if the latest craze that everyone is falling in love with. It’s scrapbooking made super simple by utilizing a system of pockets and pre-printed card inserts. The goal is generally to do one layout  per week, though some ladies accept the daily challenge of Project Life 365!

I just got started with Project Life last week. For my birthday I got the new Honey Core Kit, Cobalt Core Kit, Seafoam binder and a big pack of pocket photo pages in assorted layouts. The great thing about Project Life is its simplicity – it really does take all the guesswork out of creating scrapbook layouts. The core kits come with hundreds of cards that all complement one another, so mixing and matching is only as difficult as choosing which ones you like the best (which is actually more difficult than it sounds if you’re chronically indecisive like me!).

You can add as much or as little embellishment as you want – some fun accents are dimensional stickers, glitter accents, tiny buttons and trinkets, ribbons and twine. These are my first layouts, so I just stuck with the basic cards for now, but I can foresee myself going a little crazy with the embellishments in the coming weeks.

My 7-year-old son designed this layout all by himself!

Once you get started, I can guarantee that you’re going to be hooked! I highly recommend purchasing a Project Life brand album and core kit to get started, but if you want to change up the look of your pages a bit, you can save a little bit of cash by utilizing the free insert card resources available on the internet. To save you some time, I’ve put together this list of OVER ONE HUNDRED FREE places to download and print your own Project Life insert cards. This list is absolutely the best of the best!

    I have a binder and page dividers but I am such a freak I can’t just start. I am going to do it once school starts. I need time frames. Can’t just scrap! Ah. I love all of the Project Life things. Thanks for sharing the freebies. Might just be my little push I need to get going! :)

      I was worried about how/when to start too because I usually like to have a clear plan, but I just jumped in and went for it…and I’m SO glad I did! I know that many people like to create a two-page layout to showcase their entire week, but I tend to make my layouts center around one single event or activity that we did during the week instead of covering he whole week. Once you get started it’s hard to stop!

      It is SO easy to get hooked! I just posted this morning that Project Life is going to be back on HSN next week with some amazing deals…it’s the perfect time to get started! 😉

      Under each set of cards is a link that takes you to the site where it is available for download. Each card set is designed by and hosted on another blog or website, so you have to click the link to go to the designer’s site where you will find their download link. Each card set will be downloaded separately. :)

        Hey Heidi! I get that they were individually designed with separate downloads, however I must need more caffeine because I only see the pictures as one big block, not as individual sets with links…

            I think you must be missing a bit of the code because even when you follow the link to the inlinkz loading page, it keeps loading forever.

    I found this post through my blog stats because you have my cards listed (the retro kitchen ones), and it’s such an awesome list! I thought I was totally up on the freebies out there, but there are JCs I’ve never seen, and to have collected them all in one place, so beautifully laid out, is wonderful. Thank you!

      Thank you SO much! I had a tough time deciding which cards of yours to include! I’ve been checking out your blog lately, and I’m now convinced that I need the PL Rain core kit because I love what you’ve been doing with it! :)

    Thank you so much for this wonderful round up! I just bought my first album and core kit and can’t wait to start first week of September. I’m so excited by the number of freebies around! I can’t wait to design some myself.

    I want to start Project Life but I have a question, what type of paper should I print the print outs on? Regular printer paper? What do you suggest?

    • says

      I would suggest using a heavier weight paper (like cardstock) to print the cards on – this will help them slide in and out of the Project Life pocket pages easier. Have fun! :)

    thanks for the job!

    These were posted on my FB page, so I came to check them out! I don’t scrapbook, but I do use Project Life Cards to Journal in the Hobonichi “style”, called Fauxbonichi. This list is a fantastic resource for those of us who journal using cards =) Thank You So Much!

  7. Karen says

    Thank you so much for sharing these. Do you have any suggestions on what types of paper/cards we should print these on? I am hoping to use them in my kikki-k planner.

    Holy smoke!!!!! I just decided to put together a Smash Book box for my daughter. I made a calendar for my grandson 1st year and I though I might make the basic book and let her go crazy with a box of goodies to add as SHE goes along. You just made my job a breeze with all this printables. JACKPOT! Thank YOU!

    I am intrigued to say the least. I’m going to ask a dumb question, in printing these gorgeous cards, do Y’all use stock card paper & then it must go through alot of ink ? Thanks!
