Keeping Memories with Project Life - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

International Scrapbooking Day is 4th March 2016. To celebrate, we're having an Artisan Scrapbooking Hop!

For me scrapping is all about reliving great memories together. My kids just LOVE thumbing through the albums. Now, I love a traditional 12x12 layout and they do appear in the album occasionally BUT they're pretty time consuming when you have three kids tearing around plus a newborn! So in more recent years I've turned to Project Life. This form of memory keeping is easy, doesn't require a lot of resources and comes together quickly. Thank you Project Life!

Are you a busy mum like me? You can do it too - get some of those pics off the phone/computer and into real life! You won't regret it. And if you can do it with minimal effort - even better. 

You may have seen this first page in progress on Facebook. If so, you'd already know that one of my fav ways of using the pocket pages is splitting larger photos. This creates a visual break in my album as I tend to pack a lot of photos in elsewhere! Here I used an 8x12" and cut it into two 6x4" and three 4x4" segments. A little detailing from the Moments Like These Card Collection and we're sussed.
