project life 1


One of my New Years Goals was to document family life–so I suppose that’s how I ended up settling on Becky Higgin’s Project Life as the means to make that happen.  You see.  It has to be simple.  It has to be fast.  And, I love things that are template-y and list-y and worksheet-y (I know, isn’t that weird?!).

I ended up ordering a different binder than the Becky Higgin’s one, mostly because I was worried about the durability of a cardboardy binder in my house.  I’m sure it’s a fine product, I just went with a faux leather one.  I was disappointed to see that the most popular “template” or “photo pocket pages” (Design A) were sold out.  So, I settled on another Photo Pocket Page design (B) and went with it…just so I could get started.

Husband surprised me with a Wacom tablet for Christmas, so I was anxious to try it out.  I created a few freebies for y’all who are doing Project Life.  There are two 3×4 journaling cards (really 2.75×3.75 so they fit in the sleeves) and a 4×6 .png frame to layer over a photo.  I hope you’ll love them and incorporate them in your albums–if it’s something that goes over well, I’ll probably do a Project Life Friday Freebie each week–just to keep me on track in my own memory keeping.

Next week, I’ll share some of my own progress with Project Life.  This week was all about assembling the materials and getting excited about the project.

Just click here to download the .zip file that contains the 3 free downloads.  If you like this freebie, please feel free to share via Pinterest or Facebook!

    I really like Project Life as well, but was thinking about purchasing a different binder. I will check out your links.

    Also, I am a new reader. I found you via The Nester and I decided to buy your ebook. Clothing is taking up way too much of my time. Thank you for advice. I’m cleaning out my closet today!

    I love what you created with your tablet! I just got a tablet a couple of weeks ago and I’m still trying to get used to it. I’m impressed that you’re already creating things!

    Looks great Haley! Just shared it on Pinterest. I ordered the orange binder with the Clementine version at first and the quality is great, but I decided to switch to her black binder so that every year they could be the same. I thought they would display better.

    Also, I tried clicking on some of your links but they didn’t seem to work. Is it just me?

    These look great. I am doing Project Life this year too … and I am trying to do a sort of hybrid version of my own (doing everything digital and then printing for the 12×12 album).

    I am so jealous about the Wacom tablet. I would love to have a new one (mine is about 7 years old I think).

    Can’t wait to see more of your Project Life stuff.

    I have been really interested in Project Life since I read about it on another blog. It seems like the best fit for me for all of the same reasons you listed…I love lists, and really laid out plans! With your mention it’s for sure pushed me over the edge and I just NEED to do it! Thank you!
