I titled this post with "September," but I've actually only made it through the third week of the month.  I'm a bit behind right now and need to spend some time catching up - a good goal for this week.

September was the first month that I used the new Project Life Everyday Core Kit - mixing it in with favorites from several other core kits - and I used it liberally.  It feels like a newer version of the Midnight Edition which has long been one of my favorites.  The cards are largely neutral and feel like they mix and match really well with a variety of cards from other kits and coordinate with any and all photos.

The above left page above is my favorite of this set.  While I love taking photographs and using them in my albums, it is often the pages with fewer photos and more journaling that end up being my favorites.  These layouts are filled with more of our stories - rather than just snapshots of moments - and they provide a nice break from the visual clutter that photos often induce.  I sometimes find myself stressed when I don't have "enough" photos from a certain week, but then end up with beauties like this that end up telling a bigger and better story than more photos might.

Glad to have another set of pages completed and in the album - overjoyed to have another few weeks of our lives recorded for posterity.

Project Life is a scrapbooking system created by Becky Higgins to simplify memory keeping.  I have been using the Project Life method since 2012 and am currently on Becky's Creative Team.

If you are looking for a no-worries, easy and "it will all go together" method of scrapbooking that won't require a lot of time, I definitely recommend choosing one or two of the Project Life Core Kits that fit with your style and using that exclusively.

I am all about mixing and matching, so I use cards from many (many!) of the available kits.  My very favorite (and most used) kits are SunshineMidnightEveryday and My Story themed cards.  

If you have any questions about Project Life or about the methods I use to scrapbook, I would love to hear from you.  Comment here or find me on Instagram.
