Project Life is my preferred method of scrapbooking and I’m hoping to provide you with some useful tips for either documenting your own lives or putting together your own pages with minimal fuss.
Here’s what I’m going to emphasize with the layouts I share:
- The random stuff I like to capture and document for myself.
- The simple approach to Project Life that I take. There are a lot of photos and very little embellishment and journaling.
- The way I organize some spreads into themes or stories.

Capture Idea: Ok, how could I pass up that famous Oscars selfie? You can apply this to other major news screenshots in your area. Maybe the local paper or a national headline.
Story Idea: I’m a little quirky. I like to be photographed with giant oversized toys and things. So I tend to collect a set of them over the month. I just put them all together in one side of the page here. You can do this for any other series or collection of photos that go together.
Capture Idea: During one work day, my husband and I were texting each other back and forth with random pictures of our offices. Sort of like a dance-off, but totally not. So I just picked three from each of our offices and put them on one page.
Story Idea: March was when I started learning calligraphy and I took pictures of my practice sheets. I put them all together here with some other artsy resources as a reminder of my progress.
Capture Idea: Any new and fun toys in your life? We started collecting these Lego figurines from the Lego Movie.
Simplicity Point: Got lots of photos? Fit them in 3×4 slots. Use minimal journaling.
Simplicity Point: I had a lot more pictures than this from the trip. But limiting myself to one page helped me get it done and in the book.
Capture Idea: Going on any tours? Get a picture of the tour bus or vehicle.
Capture Idea: On the highway, we saw an Olive Ave, so of course I had to get it! Maybe you’ll see road signs with your name too and you can start a collection.
Simplicity Point: Type your captions directly on the photos.
Simplicity Point: Just write a quick hit list of what you did on the trip.
