I remember seeing Becky Higgins Project Life on Create and Craft, and to be honest, it didn’t really twig with me ….
……. and then when Marc came to stay and we saw the boxes in HobbyCraft he was very enthusiastic about it all and I became more curious.
Well ……. to cut a long story short, and as you can see from the pictures, I decided to buy an album, page protectors and a couple of core card kits as a first wedding anniversary present for Tom and Laura as it was their paper anniversary.
But, before I gave it to them I shared out some of the core cards and page protectors with Denise, Iris’s equally proud, significant other Nanny, so she can add to the album too, as and when, like me.My box of cards is now permanently on my desk in my craftroom so that I can just reach over and “do” one whenever the mood takes me, ……
….. especially after special occasions or visits when my camera is permanently clicking anyway or when a memory suddenly springs to mind.
…… and about her Granddad Andy.…..
…… who would have absolutely adored her and been the most wonderful, wonderful, patient Granddad, who would have given her the moon on a stick if she’d asked for it!So Project Life also seemed to be an ideal way of revisiting old photos and telling the stories behind them …..…….as well as stories of the present.
I have always found the idea of filling a whole scrapbook page very daunting, the Project Life cards I have measure 3inx x 4ins and 6ins x 4ins which is just enough for a few words or story and a small photo or two.
