Project Life: January Setup

I have been so excited to start Project Life this year! This will be my first time doing it for a few reasons. I always thought that it sounded like way too much of a commitment and then I figured out that I can make it whatever I want it to be! I have also been much too busy in the past to make enough time for scrapbooking, but now I am overjoyed to have rekindled my love for this hobby and I hope to never let it go again!

Instead of doing weekly spreads, I will be printing my pictures for the month at the beginning of the next month. In January I collected photos from all my devices and kept them in one folder on my computer. When I was ready to print, it was easy to plop them all in a word document, size them accordingly, and print on 8.5x11" photo paper here at home. I then cut them out, plopped them in pocket pages, and proceeded to decorate and journal. As you will see in the video at the end of this post, I have not yet completed January yet. I think this is perfectly A-Okay because I don't ever want to be caught up! The idea of having nothing to scrapbook about is much scarier for me than being "behind".

I am already loving this project because so many of the photos in my January pages are everyday moments that probably wouldn't make it into an album otherwise. I can't wait to complete this album in a year (or more... it doesn't matter to me!) and then look back on all the memories that I probably would have forgotten.

Here are some photos of what i have so far! Don't forget to check out the video at the end of this post for more of my Project Life chatting and sharing!

Please check out Scrap & Bean (where I purchased my 6x12 album) because they gave me great service! Thank you so much for stopping by today.
