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 am undecided about project life. I love, love, love to see everyone’s work but I struggle with whether or not I want to participate. This might change my mind. Tangibility might trump voyeurism.

    Signed up yesterday for Becky’s class. Super excited. Did PL in 2010 and not 2011. Want to start again as I have found I miss it. Thanks for the give away. Made an order yesterday of some PL extras but did not include the grid cards. Now that I see you really like them, I am kicking myself for not including. Oh well-hopefully I will win :-)

    I will have to check out Becky’s site. I purchased the elements/papers in Jan when they became digital but have not used them. It is on my “to do” list.
