Project Life January 2022

Hey there!

I get it, it's 2023. But I haven't posted any of my Project Life (scrapbooking) layouts in forever! And, if I continue to post them here on my blog, it might just help me in my quest stay caught up. 

Believe me when I say I'm so far behind! I think in 2022, I only got to April. The biggest reason was I ventured away from the "classic"  Project Life  and decided I wanted to do actual scrapbook pages to document my everyday, especially after watching Jamie Pate create a scaled down version of a scrapbook using Heidi Swapp's Storyline Chapters. You can see her video here Jamie Pate Storyline Chapters.

Unfortunately it wasn't long before all the Storyline Chapters that everyone was doing turned into planners. PLANNERS! I am NOT a planner person! Not only do I not have a lot of planning to do on a daily basis but putting photos that are seriously tiny into a 2x2 space is not the way I want to document my story. After all, the PHOTOS are the focus. 

So, my 2022 album has become sort of a hodge-podge of scrapping. Some out of page protectors and some inside. But, you know what? THAT'S OK! I'm getting my stories told and it doesn't matter how, as long as the photos are PRINTED! The pages for these are 9x7.5. 

So, here's my title page for 2022:

Creating this page was a blast!!! 

So, I'm not gonna lie. Creating these freestyle pages was A LOT of fun! Just so time consuming and I missed just sticking a photo into a pocket. But, because they were so fun, I'm sure I'm going to throw in a few scrapbook pages here and there from now on. 

As always...
