Project Life 2015 - Jan 16 - 27

I finally felt like working on something this past weekend, so I decided to work on most of the rest of January in my Project Life album. I used some of the Hello Memory Pockets Monthly kit from The Lilypad, as well as three of the add-ons from Amber LaBau - labels from the Hello, Friend Elements pack, a few of the Hello, Friend papers, and a card from the Hello, Friend Pocket Squares pack. I subscribe to the Memory Pockets Monthly kit (you can too, at a great discount off the price of the kit without a subscription), and so far I am loving it. I haven't wanted to use any of my physical pocket cards, because these kits are so fun!

Anyway, here's my full layout:

Most of my spread focused on just two main events - the Garth Brooks concert I attended with Brad and my brother, and the Blizzard of 2015, which completely hammered us. We ended up with just under 3 feet of snow...and then the snow just wouldn't stop. For almost a full month, we were hit with storm after storm. The city closest to me, Lowell, has been named the snowiest city in the country. That was back when we had 111" of now. That's since grown by a few. A normal season for Lowell is under 40". So crazy!

I had to include a shot of my pretty best friend, Shannon, on our crafty day. I love the little "best friend" tag that came in Amber's element add-on. I included my ticket stubs for the concert and our parking ticket. I also used one of my free Best Moment Overlays to highlight what became my favorite moment of January. 

And of course, the right page was all about that snow. That shot as I opened the garage door was so neat. And I had to go out and take some photos of all the snow drifts and of a ruler stuck in the snow (while the snow was still falling).

I used the "hello" card from the main kit and added alpha stickers to spell "blizzard." Then I just added some snowflake and regular sequins to decorate it.

I'm not exactly up-to-date with Project Life this year, but I'm writing notes every day using my free planner pages, and organizing my photos so I can work as I want.

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 used the digital Project Life format, which you can find products for here. Or you can design a page using the Project Life iOS app.
