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.

Simplicity Point: All squares on this layout with photos from my Instagram feed.
Simplicity Point: I placed patterned paper in a diagonal pattern on both sides of the spread.
Capture Idea:Gas prices had been going down, so I took a picture of that.
Simplicity Point: Both sides of the spread use the same page layout.
Capture Idea: The upper right shows a before and after of the wall hanging process in our upstairs hallway.
Capture Idea: I was sitting at Costco waiting for it to open and the light was really nice. Look around even when you’re running errands.
Capture Idea: The bottom left corner is blurred on purpose, but it’s a picture of a Christmas card envelope we received that was lettered nicely.
Capture Idea: On the top right, I wrote out a recipe and photographed it before we went to the grocery. It’s nice to incorporate my own handwriting and recipes into this album.
Story Idea: The spread is a quick weekend trip to Las Vegas with our folks.
Simplicity Point: I have many more photos from this trip, but I kept it to one spread so I could get it done.
Simplicity Point: Digital washi tape with typed text is one of my favorite ways to label photos.
Capture Idea: Casino winnings! My husband won fifty cents off a slot machine. And then quit while he was ahead.
