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 photo pocket pages 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.
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!

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.
