I changed things up for the second half of the year. I'll be using my templates, and no cards/papers/embellishments. Just photos and text. I want to get my memories into a book, and I just don't want to be spending so much time on daily documenting anymore. I want to have time to do the "fun stuff" like traditional layouts, themed pocket and mini albums, and cards. So, sorry these pages will all be pretty boring, but I'm planning to share them anyway in case anyone who reads this truly wants to know what life is like for us :)
Here's the first spread for my July to December book:
Some photos blurred for privacy
I chose my Pocket Template 2 because I didn't have too many 4x6 photos for this period. My font is one I purchased that is no longer for sale, called DJB Bailey, by Darcy Baldwin. Her shop retired recently and I'm glad I scooped this one up. It's the perfect handwritten font!
Here's a closer look at the left page:
We visited some friends at the end of June, so I included a photo that captured all four of the kids in the backyard. Austin started swim lessons, and we started a family movie night tradition that I hope will stick.

I really like the clean and simple look having no papers or cards gives to my pages.
Project Life is an amazing and simple scrapbooking system designed by Becky Higgins. While I often use products created by other designers, I attribute my love of pocket style scrapbooking to Becky and Project Life, which is why I always refer to my pocket pages as Project Life. For more information, please check out Becky's website. If you're new to the blog and you'd like to scroll back through my past few years doing Project Life, you can find all of my Project Life related posts here. In 2014 I switched to the digital Project Life format, which you can find products for here.
