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.

Story Idea: A long weekend trip to Chicago with some friends.
Simplicity Point: Bulleted lists for trip highlights are my bestest friends.
Capture Idea: I photographed the tickets to the Art Institute. This is my way of incorporating ephemera in a digital format.
Capture Idea: Shadow selfie with the husband. I love collecting these from various places.
Story Idea: Another trip, another isolated spread.
Capture Idea: The trash cans have stars on them! (Read more about my trash can fascination here.)
Simplicity Point: The selfie I took on the bottom right page was from te front-facing camera of my iPhone 5S. The resolution of the photo wasn’t quite wide enough for the square “pocket”, so I found a digital paper that coordinated with the shirt I was wearing to use as a background.
Story Idea: The right page is my process of learning to crochet. I like to document the beginning stages of new skills or hobbies that I’m learning.
Capture Idea: We tried out some new (to us) foods at Disneyland, so I snapped some photos of it.
Simplicity Point: Quick and easy type directly on top of the photos.
Capture Idea: My usual nail polish photo that I had Instagrammed.
