I did it! I had another baby, he’s almost two months now and just as with my other children I can’t imagine my life without him. Times have changed though in the scrapbooking world since I had my other two children and I am lot busier now then I used to be for some reason.
I decided that since I am a mother of three now that I was going to create a project life album as the baby’s 1st year album as well as complete a project life album for the family this year. I think I might be a little crazy but I am hoping to be able to catch up with both albums by the end of this month.
I think I completely under estimated how much time I would really have while being home and taking care of a newborn!
I have managed to complete the month of January for the baby’s album and for our family project life album. There are some things that I find a little more complicated with project life.
The baby’s project life album I am working on is digital so it is a little easier than the actual family album in that I don’t have to put the photos into the sizes that I want to print them. I find it very time-consuming going through the photos and putting the photos that I want to be 3×4 size in a template to print.
I do love the ease of throwing these photos in the album though! I think once I learn to set aside time each week and I am all caught up that sorting and printing photos will be much easier for me but until then I am playing catch up since I have not learned to set up time each week to go through the thousands of photos that I take each day.
I am working on getting on some type of schedule for my photos which I have come to find is very important if you are going to tackle a project life album. With all that being said I am finding that I really enjoy pocket page scrapbooking and I enjoy mixing it up by adding 12×12 layouts to the mix for those photos that I feel really deserve to be honored on a 12×12 layout.
I wanted to share with you a few pages that I have completed for the baby’s album so far. I have to admit that I really love the ease of creating his album digitally considering I take about 50 thousand pictures a day of him!
For the family project life album I have decided to primarily use the Kraft Edition kit and I think I will be adding some stuff from the 5th and frolic kit.
Have you attempted Project Life yet?
