Project Life, or how my procrastination paid off

CM1800B Back in the old days, aka the 1980s, the people of America started buying VCRs to enjoy watching movies at home. At the time, there were two formats on the market — Beta and VHS. The people who chose Beta would soon become very sad as VHS became the way to go. Since then, we’ve moved on to DVDs, Blu-Rays, streaming videos, movies on demand.

The lesson to be learned here, is something better always comes along. It’s the same with scrapbooking, or memory keeping.

I mentioned in a previous post how I still haven’t finished my oldest daughter’s first-year album. She’s 26 now, and I went on to have two more kids after her (now 21 and 19). Their albums aren’t finished either. And by “not finished” I really mean “not started.” I’ve finished other albums — vacation albums, and such. But the pressure of coming up with the perfect layouts for my kids’ baby albums just paralyzed me from even starting. So I didn’t.

Normally, I would feel horrible and tremendous guilt about having stacks of photos lingering in photo boxes, but not this time. Because this time, my procrastination has paid off. Because this time there’s Project Life by Becky Higgins. I’ve been a fan of Becky Higgins and her simple, but beautiful, scrapbooking style for years. With Project Life, she changed the game.

Project Life is an easy memory keeping system that allows you to be creative without the stress of being creative. Pocket pages and adorable pre-made cards allow flexibility so you don’t have to worry about tearing apart a layout if you don’t like it. You just rearrange your cards and journaling until you’re happy with it. And, if your child needs a particular photo for school, you can slip it right out instead of ripping it apart with your teeth while cursing the inventor of permanent adhesive.

Along with the pre-made card inserts and pocket pages, Stampin’ Up!’s Project Life line includes stamps, albums, accessory packs, dies and other tools for you to create your own cards if — and this is the important part — IF you want to. Whether you do or not, your albums will still have their own personalized look.

If you prefer digital memory keeping, Becky thought of that, too, with exclusive Stampin’ Up! digital offerings.

Whatever route you choose, you will have FINISHED albums that look beautiful at a fraction of the cost of the scrapbooking days of yore.

Aren’t you glad you waited? I know I am.
