how to start Project life documenting

Move your memories from digital files to tangible, sharable, memorable layouts!  It's as easy as print, slice, design your layout and enjoy!

How to get started creating project life layouts;

  • Select a dozen or so photos from your phone, computer or wherever you store your photos.  Get them printed or print them out yourself! There are many affordable printers on the market these days along with good quality photo paper.  Printing at home I find, gives you more control over the size as well as the quantity of prints! I'll link to a few printers and paper that I love soon!
  • Next, decide what your theme is going to be for your layouts.  This can range from special occasions to trips, to just a fun Saturday in your local city!  Whatever you decide you want your theme to be, use your project life digital downloads from the shop to help support your layout!   Our designs are mostly black and white and minimalistic.  It's just what we love best so that your photos can stand-out!!
  • Next, arrange your photos and print-outs into your project life sleeves in any format that you find aesthetically pleasing!
  • Display your memories and layouts in a beautiful memory book which I recommend leaving out on your living room coffee table for you to enjoy!

Learn how to journal the creative and easy way

Creative journalling is one of my favourite creative activities to do!  It's an easy way to express yourself, set goals, figure out your next steps and to document memories and special occasions!

Creative journalling can be used for;

  • simple journalling
  • gratitude journalling
  • dream board imagining
  • mood board creating
  • goal setting
  • or bullet journal to keep yourself organized

Whatever your goal is, all you need is a journal, a few writing instruments and go!  Creative journalling is a little more fun! Gather those same tools but add a few cool rolls of washi tape, the digital downloads from the shop, a glue stick, scissors and your photos or magazines to tear images from.  Then watch as you become inspired, excited to create your layouts and fill your new journal!!
