Project life


Its been a few weeks since I posted (blame the weather)  and a month since I did a craft post, which is what I promised I would do more of this year! Well you are in for a treat. A few weeks ago I was contacted by Hobbycraft to see if I would like to do some craft installments on my blog with them, I jumped at the chance, as I basically live in Hobbycraft! So when I was asked to pick a product to craft away with I knew exactly what to choose! At christmas my Mum bought me some Project Life stuff, so I chose a set of the  Kraft edition cards to go with what my Mum had bought me. Let me explain, Project Life is a new way to scrap book and it is dead easy! To create a project life you need the ring binder, the wallet pages, the cards, photos and a pen. The idea of it is that you just slot your photos in, along side some of the beautifully designed cards to create an almost organised collaged page. Over time I am going to be sharing with you the development of my Project Life and hopefully encourage you all to do something more with your photos other then putting them on the internet



The Kraft edition cards have some amazing designs on them! you get a massive 616 cards!



No gluing, just slide them in

My introduction page, I've added stick on letters onto my photo, this could also be done in photoshop before printing, but I like adding the extra texture!


My first two pages are from my trip to Valencia, it's so much nicer to have photos in your 
hand then on a screen

I have added embellishments on top of the sleeves to add extra character




I'm really excited to create my Project Life in association with HobbyCraft, its something were I can print off a few photos at a time and spend 20 minutes doing 2 pages or I could print off hundreds and spend a full day arranging my images. I'm looking forward to having something to not only keep personal photos in but somewhere to put my blog photos. I hope you'll come back to see my next installment!
Much Love

  2. I've been meaning to share some more of my crafty projects on my blog too! Love your project life spreads, your album is looking great already! Pinterest is a great place for inspiration for Project Life - I am so tempted to buy a kit and get started! xx

  4. I've just started a scrapbook and me and my boyfriend are thinking of starting one together so this is really helpful, and you've constructed yours so beautifully!

  5. I've never heard of Project Life but it really does look amazing. I'm an old fashioned girl and still print out all my photos so have albums and albums of them. This is a lovely way to display photos ... would be great for someones birthday as well, kind of like a This is Your Life book.

    I love it! x

  7. I saw all these in Hobbycraft the other day - I really like the designs, cards, papers etc but I thought they were so expensive and didn't really do smaller packs to use with other scrapbooking sets. I thought about getting the whole set, but I love the cut and paste aspect of scrapbooking.

    I totally agree with you though, it's so much nicer to be able to flip through your memories, rather than having them on a screen. I put together a book for my boyfriend for Valentines that I'm going to fill over the year and I'm also going to do one for myself. I have a HUGE scrapbook that I bought from Paperchase a few years ago and it'll still empty! :O The horror! ;)

  11. PMI’s Project Management Professional (PMP) ® credential is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers. Recently I went for a PMP prep course by the training provider mentioned above, the instructor was too good and I passed with relative ease. Looking forwards to apply what I learned in PMP class in my company.
