Can I tell you how much I am loving this monthly approach to Project Life®?
I LOVE IT.
It's manageable. You have time for this. You can do this!
When I looked back through my images from April there was one main theme that definitely stood out: blooming flowers in my yard. So many flowers. Throughout the month I've been taking photos regularly and was able to really document the explosion of blooms that occurred over the course of the month and I had the best time printing out so many of them to tell a story.
Here's a look at how it all came together:
For April I decided to go with two of the 2B 9x12 page protectors (with 3x3 pockets) because I knew I wanted to include a bunch of images.
I took one of the sentiment cards from the May Stories By The Month™ kit and cut it to 3x3 and added it into one of the pockets.
As always, pretty much always with any inserts, I added Avery Index tabs to the outside edge.
The "April stories" card is from the April Stories By The Month™ kit (available digitally here).
On the back of the 6x8 page protector I added another card from the April Stories By The Month™ kit and a custom journaling card that holds my story for the month.
Were there more stories from this month? Of course. Do I need to scrapbook/document them all? Absolutely not.
I so want to encourage you to find a method and a rhythm that works for you that actually allows you to get some of your stories told. Sometimes when we feel like we have to include everything we end up doing nothing. You have the time, the ability, and most likely the supplies to do something.
For my journaling this month I created a custom card and focused mainly on the story of all the flowers. I also added just a bit at the bottom about a couple other stories from the month.
On the back side of the 8.5x11 page protector I included a second photo enlargement which is a picture of me taking a picture of the sunset in Austin. In the sky at the top of the photo I used the Quote This stamp set to create a home for some handwritten journaling and added a plastic rectangle title on top (from a past Add On).
On the last page for this month I continued with all the 3x3 images and cut one of the cards from the April Stories By The Month™ kit to finish it off.
