My First Project Life

I have finally gotten around to putting some of my daughter’s Project Life album together. I started with two of the big occasions – her birth and her first birthday, now just to fill in everything in-between!

I love the mix between using the photo pocket pages to just slip photos into, and the 12″ x 12″ page protectors where you can do a little more “traditional” scrap booking. I’ve just used one sheet of DSP to glue down the name card from her hospital cot and her little hand prints I embossed when she was 6 weeks old. Her little embossed footprints were on a card the hospital did for me when she was just three weeks old – she wasn’t able to come home till she was five weeks old. I didn’t want to glue down the whole card so I cut the DSP so I could insert the corners of the card which will hold it in place, but still let me take it out if I want to.


After the hospital had embossed her feet, I thought they were so cute (and I also thought, I could do that!) which is why I did her hands when we got home – they were a little trickier than feet, but I still got a good result. I did them again when she was 14 months old. I love being able to record these types of memories, look how much her hands and feet have grown!

I’m using the Hello Baby Girl Project Life collection. I love the soft colours it uses: Blushing Bride and So Saffron, but I love that it also has Mint Macaron so it’s not all too pink and girly. On the layout on the right, I used one of the larger 6″ x 4″ cards, and cut it into three 2″ x 4″ strips to create coordinating inserts down the middle of the page.


I still have the journalling card to fill in, but at least all the photos are done for this spread… now to get going with the rest!
