Project Life

Here is a photo of my very first Digital Project Life book using Becky Higgins Project Life Templates at www.beckyhiggins.ziblio.com

It was easy, fast, and fun to make the book... and I "caught up" on one of the years (2005)that I had not been able to scrapbook at all. Plus, I was able to buy 4 copies. One for me, and one for each of our boys when they are all grown up and leave the house. When you consider the cost of printing photos the price of the digital version it's a pretty good deal. It's a personal choice though. If you want to get "caught up" from past years I say this is a great way to get a whole lot of photos into books quickly. You can always go back and make other layouts from these same years. I find that now that I look back at these photos I see and remember layouts that I have wanted to make. My whole family enjoys looking through these books and my oldest son Alex actually prefers the look and feel of a "real book" with a spine and hard cover. I like Project LIfe in any shape or form both digitally and paper/glue and hybrid. It all works. Getting those stories and photos down on paper is amazing. You won't regret it.

I will also be catching up on past years using more of Becky Higgin's Project Life Kits. Here are three that I am using simultaneously to catch up on previous years and current year. I also have another digital version that I am working on at the same time. It all works for me.
I went through all of my 2008 photos and just had them printed at scrapbookpictures.com and will just slip these into my Project Life Kit along with all of the journaling and month cards. Once all of the papers and photos are in the kit it will be easy to go at my own pace and journal. Plus we can enjoy these photos and the whole family can contribute to the journaling. Love.

I'm not sure what I am going to do going forward as far as using Project Life digitally vs. traditional. I like that the digital books do not take up a lot of space. I like that they are quick and easy to do. However, I also love the traditional as well and how you can make it your own. Hmmm. More to come later.
