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: I took a photo of my husband’s hand while he was putting the lid on a soda cup. Try to incorporate some hands in your shots to give some feeling of movement.
Capture Idea: Tried out a new flavor of ice cream from Trader Joe’s. (I didn’t love it)
Simplicity Point: Fill, fill, fill those spaces with digital scrapbook paper.
Story Idea: This was from my trip to Salt Lake City and these were all photos from my phone.
Capture Idea: I took a screenshot of the book I was reading on the plane. It’ll be really cool to flip through all the books I’ve read over the year.
Capture Idea: I also put together screenshots of Instagram photos of the groups I was a part of during the conference I went to.
Story Idea: Still all phone shots from the Salt Lake City trip.
Capture Idea: The bus broke down on the way to one of the excursion, so I took a funny selfie series and put the two photos side-by-side.
Simplicity Point: I included a bulleted list of my travel highlights.
Capture Idea: My luggage while checking out of the hotel in the bottom right.
Story Idea: A quick weekend trip to Seattle. This whole spread is just from that trip with a brief card listing the highlights.
Capture Idea: The trash can on the left there says “Seattle Center” so I had to snag that. I kind of have a thing for trash cans.
Capture Idea: The signage for the restrooms in Pike Place Market was pretty funny with the dude holding a baby, so I had to capture that too.
Simplicity Point: One of the postcards we bought was a neat illustration of the Space Needle, so into the scanner it went and into the album. (Read more about my postcard collection here)
