Freshly Brewed Projects - Project Life

Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls. This week we are talking Project Life.

If you have never tried Project Life, then you are in for a real surprise. It is such a fun way to bring your memories to life. Rather than having all your photos shoved in shoe boxes or on digital media, Project Life enables you to get them out, show them off and document them in a straight forward, quick and easy way.

I am a traditional scraper from way back. I started with the scrap pages where the only embellishments you had were stickers. And I do still love to do the traditional scrapping. But not all photos are suitable for traditional pages. And sometimes there are just too many great photos for an event and they simply won't fit on a trraditional page. That's where Project Life comes into its own.

Like these pages I have done below.

This was a special occasion recently in our family and there is just too much information I need to tell the person looking at the page, and too many photos for a traditional scrap page. 

On the 30h March this year, my parents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. So we decided to have a luncheon.  I made up some beautiful invitations and sent them far and wide to relatives all over the country. Many we knew wouldn't be able to make it for various reasons. But we were thrilled when several from interstate accepted. Mum and Dad were over the moon that some were coming so far just for them. The luncheon was beautiful and we followed it with a gathering at Mum and Dads after lunch. We all got to catch up with family we hadn't seen for some time. One cousin I hadn't seen for nearly 16 years. Plus I got to see my brother again after nearly 5 years. 

I wanted to include all this in the journalling as I knew these little details would be forgotten over time. Project Life was the only way I could include so many little details and not have the journalling take over. And I had way too many photos that I wanted to include.

Here are some close up shots of some of the little bits I have added to the photos and the journalling cards.
