Getting Started: Project Life Scrapbookers – What to Purchase First

Does the thought of scrapbooking a 12″ x 12″ page seem too daunting for you?  Why not try the Project Life style of scrapbooking?  Instead of scrapbooking an entire 12″ x 12″ page, the page protector is divided up into smaller sections so you only have to scrapbook a 4″ x 6″ or 2″ x 3″ or 4″ x 4″ shape.. you can choose to make the entire 4″ x 6″ space a picture or you could divide it into two 2″ x 3″ spaces… the options are unlimited and you can add bible verses, sayings, stories and/or words of wisdom in other 4″ x 6″ spaces…

This style of scrapbooking is pretty quick and really fun…

I put together a list of items you will need to get started… I am assuming you have no supplies… so just use this list as a guide… most of the items on this list you will use over and over and over again (ie: Stampin’ Write markers for journaling or Stampin’ Paper Trimer)…

So Jump-in and lets get started!

su project life scrapbook


1. Use the Stampin’ Write Markers to journal a story or a word of wisdom or a poem in one of the squares!

2. Use the corner punch to round the edges to create a unique look.

3. Decorate one or two of the squares with stamped images and buttons/ ribbon/ brads…

4. Use the Simply Scrappin’ Kit to get started with making the cards for each rectangle.

5. Make the Divided Page procter double sides for more pages.

6. Store locks of hair, a tooth or small mementos of a trip in one of the proctor pockets for discovery later…

7. Make one side of the page protector a weeks worth of activities or a year of fun in your child’s life…

8. Play with free fonts that you can download to your computer for headings and journaling ideas…
