Project Life, Jade Edition + Giveaway!

Once upon a time I was way way way into scrapbooking.  I even convinced my sister to go to a scrapbooking retreat for a few days.  I had 100 pairs of scissors, every type of pen and adhesive you could think of.  Back then I admired Becky Higgins but she hadn’t dreamed up Project Life quite yet.  I’m pretty sure if I had PL back then, I would’ve kept going and be caught up on everything.  Currently I have 2 big scrapbooks for my oldest, 3 pages for my middle, and not even a book for my baby.  My baby who will be seven in two months.

Recently I received a big old box in the mail and was giddy when I opened it:

Project Life Jade Kit

The colors are perfection.  It’s super simple.  It’s made for someone like me.  Someone who loves pictures and capturing memories.  But who doesn’t have the time to scrapbook in the traditional sense.

I mean- seriously- how much do you love this pile of cards for Project Life?

Project Life- Jade

Because I have years and years of scrapbooking to catch up on, I wasn’t sure where to start.  It’s a little super intimidating.  So I scrolled through my Instagram feed and decided that I’d create pages about one of the things I want to remember forever: baking with my kids.   I didn’t really learn to cook or bake until I was in college.  And I “baked” potatoes and “cooked” pasta.  Freshman fifteen was more like freshman twenty for me.  After I got married I learned to love cooking and baking.  I wanted to make sure my kids spent time with me in the kitchen often.  They know how to crack eggs, measure, stir, blend, and more.  I gathered some pictures and went to it.

Project Life Giveaway

I included one of our favorite bread recipes.  I created the recipe card in Photoshop and printed it on 4×6 photo paper.  I took the pictures of us baking with my iPhone- nothing fancy and at several different times.  But I don’t think it takes away from the memories being preserved.  I love how the pages turned out and they were so insanely simple.

Hi- I'm Mique (as in Mickey). I started 30days as an idea file a few years ago. After three years and hundreds of ideas, I now realize that I'll never check them all off my list. When I'm not creating, I love spending time with family and friends and long drives, especially if they end at the beach.

    I just love Project Life, although I do not have it. I’m a small scrapbooker and a bit intimidated by the 12×12 pages. I see so many great books put together. If I win I’ll have to take the plunge :o)
