Project Life

Okay, I may be a little obsessed...I don't remember how (probably Pinterest), but I stumbled across Project Life. Mind blown. Don't know about Project Life? Basically, it's a solution-based way of scrapbooking created by Becky Higgins. This video has a little more info.
(Checkout Becky's inspiration page to see Project Life in action.)

So easy right? I love the simplicity of it. Seriously, it takes me like an hour to put together a traditional scrapbook layout. I'm a little bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my creative endeavors. Probably why the last time I "scrapbooked" was over 5 years ago. Plus, I love how much more of the story I can record. Also, I can make this as easy or as "crafty" as I want, and totally personalize it. I can use it as a quick way to catch up on years of pictures, or a more labor-intensive way to record the everyday like Project 365. I can choose one way or the other or have a mixture of it all. Love it!

I am so excited. How excited? So excited, I had everything in my Amazon shopping cart, waiting for payday. Seriously, I would check on it like everyday just to make sure that nothing had sold out. So excited, that I would spend hours looking at people's Project Life photos, layouts, and blog posts. Yeah, can we say obsessed? So obsessed that I have spent the last month searching the web for free journaling and filler cards. (Which I'll put together a post of links and share with you later.) I have spent countless nights printing and cutting out cards. I think my husband is sick of it. I have a serious little stash just waiting for my pages. I even created some cards myself! (I'll share those too, once I make sure they fit in the protectors.)

Well, guess what?! Yesterday was payday, and I got the green light from the husband to buy them today. Yay!!! So, I'm off to check out (because you know it's already in my cart online)!

So, tell me, have you ever had a something that just clicks for you and you get super excited about doing it?

Love this, thanks for sharing. I love traditional scapbooking and thought I would have so much more time to do it, but I really don't so this would be great.
