Celebrating Three Years | Project Life Giveaway & Blog Hop

Project Life is celebrating 3 years this week and we’re celebrating with a bunch of giveaways today as part of the Creative Team blog hop.

GIVEAWAY | One person will receive a set of 3×4 grid cards and a set of 4×6 grid cards (two of my favorite extras to the Project Life kits).

As most of you know, Project Life is a big part of my memory keeping endeavors these days. Looking back through these albums is such a fun experience. So many wonderful little and big memories within these pages. Here’s a quick look back:


Here’s my first post about Project Life back in January 2010.

My pages were even simpler back in 2010 (and they are still pretty simple now). At that time I decided to make my own journal cards vs. using the kit cards.

This post from February 2010 talked about how it was going.

Do you guys remember that 2010 ended up falling off the shelf it was sitting on and everything fell out of the album? That’s still sitting in a pile in my office (best intentions of course) and it’s on my long list of projects to tackle.


I completed all 52-weeks in 2011 and I loved it.


As most of you know this is now simply a weekly (almost always) part of my life.

It’s a project I continued even through the process of getting a divorce. I think in many ways it was part of the healing process – a visual representation of all the things I had to be grateful for. I definitely included references to the challenges here and there, but I also kept the focus on moving forward.

So love Project Life. You can check out my Project Life archives here.

I’d also recommend checking out Becky’s updated Free Stuff page – cool downloads available there.

    I’ve been doing PL all year, mostly because of your inspiration last year. These are the only things I haven’t picked up for PL! I always stocked up on plastics instead!

    Ali – thanks for the chance to win some of these neat looking products.
    May I take this opportunity to mention that I think the way you look at your “re-tailored” life and how you are moving forward is such a good example to others facing the same situation… you are an inspiration in so many ways….

    I LOVE project life and this being the first year that I have done it I am happy to report that I am currently working on week 40 and still loving it.

    I bought the core kit this first year but after about a month I switched to making my own journal cards using my own supplies. So I would definitely love some of those grid cards to add to my stash.

    Just started my second attempt at project life with less emphasis on photo a day and more about capturing a week at a time. Thanks for the inspiration and for helping me to love it again.

    Thanks for the chance! I’m still trying to find my groove with project life! Love the concept, have supplies, but just can’t seem to get a flow going.

    Pamela K said…

    I did the digital version of Project Life last year and am dearly caught up for this year. I like that it is smaller and easier to share. I do wish I could tuck in memorabilia though. I may switch for 2013.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    This is my first year with PL and I am loving it. I had been doing a double page layout a month for each year but do it all at the end of the year. I am caught up on my pictures and not too, too far behind on journaling! I love the ability to do different size pages all in the same album if i have extras.

    After thinking I could make my own cards (like you did in 2010) I see the value of using the grid cards. Save time – better chance of staying current!
