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.

Check out giveaways on each of the Creative Team members blogs:

    Just bought my first PL set. We found a box of photos & childhood memorabilia my mother-in-law had given my husband years ago. Somehow, we had forgotten about it. For a split second, I was overwhelmed with what to do with it (given my need to do elaborate scrapbook pages!). I went straight to the computer and ordered an album, pages and a set of grid cards. I love seeing your pages – so inspirational!

    Bought PL a couple years ago, started saving my bits, finally putting the two together this month. I appreciate the simplicity and versatility of it. I will try to keep it away from the edge of a high place–good tip!

    I didn’t finish my PL album last year and am regretting it. I know I can go back and just use what I have but it seems so overwhelming. I am determined to keep it up this year and have been doing so much better with documenting our everyday life.
