project life--CTMH style--pt #1--an overview

Project life,
Project life,
Project life....
I kept hearing this, but wasn't sure what it was.
(Thankfully, you can find anything on the web)
And this is what I found.
It was coined by Becky Higgins (click on her name to go to her site)
and is scrapbooking/photo book/journal/smash book
-- simplified all in one kinda system.
Sound confusing? 
 Well, I was confused,
until I realized that this has been here before,
but Becky just updated it.
Of course it's quicker if you buy Becky's
But more personal if you do it my way.

Supplies
Dotty for You Paper Pack
(actually, you could use any CTMH paper pack,  they are all co-ordinating)
Colonial White Cardstock
paper trimmer
corner rounder
stamps & or stickers of your choice
memory protectors--photo storage pages
(Z1324--vertical & 4113--horizontal)
Recipe Box Z1322
Work-in-Progress Album (Z1348)

Save time...stack 3 paper and cut them all at once


 At this stage of the game I cut a sheet of white cardstock
into 4x6 pieces, and then cut some of them into 2x6 & 3x4 pieces
stamped some words & journaling lines on them
rounded the corners, and I'm done

Now, store them in our recipe box
until you're ready to work on your "project life"
So, if I had picture developed I would pop them in a couple of spots
pick out some paper accents,
maybe add a sticker and some journaling
pop them into our photo storage pages
and
Voila!!

I will be posting more info on how to make your own "life project"
