Today, I am using Fancy Pants Designs to put my own spin on Project Life. I think PL is perfect for any occasion when I have a lot of photos, too many for a scrapbook layout, or when I want to add extra journaling. Like my son's first birthday.
Here's a sneak peek of a two-page PL spread I made:
My son has a March birthday and we had a St. Patrick's Day themed party when he turned 1. For my Project Life spread, I used two 12 x 12 page protectors with 4 x 6 pockets. To turn the top pocket above into two (faux) 2 x 3 slots, I mounted the cupcake photo and the journaling card on a 4 x 6 piece of white cardstock. Instant 2 x 3 slots!
Here's another sneak peek:
Fancy Pants Designs makes Brag Pads for each of its collection. They are a collection of 4 x 6 papers with various designs, quotes and patterns. They are perfect for Project Life because they fit right into 4 x 6 slots. I used the Brag Pads in all the slots shown above.
The great thing about Project Life is you can use any scrapbook supplies you have on hand. Just cut them down to fit the Project Life page protectors.
I have the complete spread of my son's first birthday, Project Life style, on the Fancy Pants Designs blog today. I hope you'll stop by!
