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.

    Thanks Ali for the giveaway! I did this in 2010, skipped 2011 (didn’t want to make this feel like a chore but wanted to keep it fun) and now am doing it in 2012. I love this project and now have a handful of friends who have jumped on the bandwagon too!

    Thank you for sharing your PL throughout your journey. I started in 2010, but it’s been a rash of catch up etc. so I’m planning on staying on top of it in 2013. I love it no matter how I work on it though. I am also loving the new products that have come out so thank you for the giveaway!

    Your PL pages are such an inspiring resource…this is my first year of PLing, and while I’ve found some weeks challenging, I love looking back on what I’ve documented. Thanks for the chance to win some goodies!

    Shawna said…

    This is my first year doing PL, and although I am about 2 weeks behind (not bad for working outside of the home full time, going to grad school, and keeping up with my 4 year old son and husband!!!), I LOVE THIS PROJECT and am determined to finish! And your inspiration, Ali, keeps me going!

    I have avoided Project Life up to this point because I was too afraid I wouldn’t be able to stick to the commitment once made. But I’ve heard so many scrapbooking friends say they love it… to the point that I’ve signed up for the BPC class Project Real Life just to see what I think about it and whether 2013 will be my year!

  • 148.
    Shannon said…

    Ali, it was following your experience with Project Life (and seeing how you approached it with your usual “using it the way it works for me) that prompted me to do it too. I am just finishing my first album, documenting the first year after the death of my husband, and I love seeing my kids sit down and flip through it. Thanks for all you do!

    Marla H. said…

    What a great job on keeping up with your Project Life. I would love to have these cards to help me with my journaling in my scrapbooks. TFS and another great giveaway.!!!
