This year, I haven't taken as many photos as I'd like particularly of our every day lives. So I've decided to do Project Life or Project 365 again in 2013. With Project Life or 365, you take at least one photo every day.
I did this one other year, 2010 and scrapped my one photo per day. I first read about this process a year earlier in Creating Keepsakes magazine and I don't remember if there was a scrapbooking format or not but I chose to do my own thing. I prefer to do traditional pages. I just put a lot of photos per page - sometimes 7 per page for one week. Sometimes I spread a week over a two page layout. Sometimes I did a whole month in two pages. Sometimes I did a single page on one day's photo. It depended on the time I had available.
I call my process "A photo a day, scrapped the traditional way."
In this video I share a little of my 2010 album. If you would like to see more pages, click here for the tag from this blog for Project 365. Most of those posts are from my 2010 album.

My plan for 2013 is to do one video a week. Some of them will be Project Life/365 and some will be regular layouts. I'm trying to streamline the videos with a goal of keeping them to 10 minutes or less. We'll see on that one :-) I'll share some sketches in a PDF file here on the blog.
I noticed in reviewing the 2010 album that the emphasis was really on the photos. I like that and I'd like to add more journaling, too.
I hope you will join me. To visit my YouTube channel, click here. I'd love to have you as a subscriber. Whether you plan to do Project 365 or not, I hope you will commit to capturing more of your daily life. We all take photos of the birthdays, holidays and vacations. Those make up a fraction of our lives. Let's leave our children and ourselves a memento of the great every day little things.
Thanks for stopping by today!
