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 so excited about this PL anniversary, have been on board since day one as well. Each year just keeps getting better and now I can’t imagine never doing this.

    Thanks so much for the chance to win, would love the 4×6 cards!!

    How funny that my album is still sitting here in a pile too, mine fell apart about 2 weeks before yours did. So glad to know that you haven’t fixed it yet. Even my DD of 2011 is in a pile. ONE OF THESE DAYS RIGHT???!!!

    Thanks Ali for being a continued inspiration to me and especially with your project life and keeping it real.

    I keep wanting to start this project but everytime I go to get my supplies they are temporarily out of stock. Then when they come back in stock, I have just spent too much money on different supplies to justify the expense. Would love to get these!
