A Look At My 2017 Project Life® Album(s) So Far

Today I wanted to share a video overview of where I'm at in my Project Life® album(s) for 2017. 

I've got the first half of the year complete - January through June - and have made a start on printing photos and completing weeks for the second half of the year. I'll walk you through both albums in my video below:

Bottom line for me: 

  1. I still love working in the 12x12size for this project and plan to continue that next year.
  2. I still love having each spread be one week. It fits the kinds of photos and stories I want to include.
  3. I still love filling all the 4x6 pockets with photos and a title card. I choose seven photos to represent my week and then usually include a couple other 3x4 photos. 
  4. I still love using repetition with embellishments and design as I create these spreads. 

Check out all my past Project Life® posts here

Many of these spreads were completed using Story Kit™and Story Stamp™ products and my process for those pages was shared in each of those classrooms. Learn more about my Story Kit™ subscription here

    I like those rectangular stickers you have on the photos in the beginning of the album. It looks like you wrote the day and a caption about the photo. Is that something that you sell?

      Hi! Right now Story Camp is just being held in our hometown. It's a better fit for Katie and I in this season of our lives :).

    Love looking at this! Makes me slightly sad I lost first 6 months of this year's layouts to a flood but I finally did a PL spread last week, so maybe this will help inspire me to re-do them!

    Love how your photos are all printed and slipped in, I'm such a batch worker. Do you have your stories contained somewhere, or just wing it when you tackle that week?

    I noticed some studio calico products here and there. Do you subscribe to them? As always I love your spreads. This is definitely motivating me to 'get the pockets filled and tell the story'!

    Ali, Thank you for sharing this. I've never done project life and have wanted to do some format of it - I think monthly. I've done the Storytelling with Project Life class and loved it. My hang up is getting the photos printed since I don't print at home.
    This post and video are so helpful and motivating to get me into doing this. I haven't printed any photos this year and am planning on doing a BIG photo order soon to print out all the photos. I journal every day so hopefully I can pair the photos with those words. I am impressed with the amount of journalling you have in these albums - lots of great stories and documentation here. Any tips about going back and doing spreads with older photos is always helpful.
    Thanks again!
