I just wanted to share with you these cute tags I made for my Project Life Album.
They were all made using left overs and scraps that I have been saving. On some of them I've added a bit of sewing.
A few weeks ago Michelle Wooderson posted on her blog, these super cute tags that she made for her Project Life album and so I was inspired to make my own!
Thanks...Jules x

Project Life Storage and Organisation

 One of the topics that we got talking about a few weeks ago on this new FB Group I am apart of to do with Project Life was how do you store your products for Project Life?
I must admit that I did have all my Project Life stuff seperate but it was in the cupboard in a few 12x12 Magazine Holders, so not out where I was reminded to actually do and use it!
All the black holders are all my Project Life stuff, along with my Albums for 2012
 (I have a spare album ready to go incase the first one gets as full as 2011)
Anyway, there were heaps of ideas that people were showing what they used to store or stash their PL stuff in and of course where they got them from here in Australia.
My biggest storage inspitation comes from Michelle Wooderson, she just has the coolest ideas and I love her style in both Card Making and Project Life!
(I so want to be like her when I grow up!)
Anyway, here is the rest of my storage and organisation for my Project Life (at the moment) to keep me motivated for the rest of 2012!
This cute little draw below is from TYPO, they also came in a pink, but I loved the natural look, but this was the last one in stock, it is just the perfect size for the 3x4 cards to sit in.
I've had this set of drawers for a few years now and I have always stored bits and pieces in it, but I cleaned it out the other day and I have moved all my smaller embellishements and things for PL into it so it is all in the one place now, plus it is easy to pull out the drawers and take them to my desk.

There are still a few things that I really want but cannot seem to find at the moment, but will certainly be keeping an eye out for them or something similar!
So, how do you store your Project Life stuff?

Project Life

How are we on this beautiful Spring day?

If you have been a follower of my blog for a while now then you would have heard me mention Project Life by Becky Higgins a few times.

I first mentioned Project Life back in January 2011 and although I didn't do a regular update on my blog through out the time I was quietly working on this in the back ground with everything else going on in life!
this is the Turquoise Edition that I started with in 2011.
I eventually finished my 2011 Album and (although there are a few journalling gaps here and there)  anyone who knew me back when I did scrapbooking knows that I was a shocker when it came to journalling - all it needs is a title and a date right! I think my pictures tell the story!

 My completed album - very full and overflowing...
I did my Project Life as a Weekly update. It's that full that it doesn't close properly!
 Just a few random pages here and there from throughout 2011
We went to Top Gear Live (which was Anthony's Birthday Present)
 Had a holiday in Fiji (so there were heaps of photos in this week)
 My brother's Lego Collection
 Friday Night Footy - Go the Broncos!

 And of course..Christmas
So one completed album for 2011 - photos and journalling.

So with 2011 finished, I was certainly inspired to do another Project Life Album in 2012, so I did my pre order for this again through Craft House in New Zealand they are the stockist for Australia and New Zealand.

This year there were heaps more Collections to choose from, but I ended up going with the Clementine Edition. I only ordered the Core Kit and a Pack of Mixed Page Protectors as I thought I would use my own 12x12 Albums that I already had here at home and I knew I had 2 in the same colour so if I needed to go over into the next album, then this wasn't going to cost me more $ and then I didn't need to wait.

The Clementine Edition
 While I was waiting for my Project Life Kit to arrive I started going through and making a collection of suitable products that I could use in my album this year. Sad to say that most of this stuff I already had here at home.
I did find this really cool USA site called Elle's Studio and they had some products that are so suited to Project Life.
 So my Clementine Edition eventually arrived at the beginning of January.
So, very happy to make a start on Project Life 2012....
Thanks...Jules x
