I don’t know about you but lately, it seems as if daily (or hourly) someone is saying ‘life is short’, ‘life is a blessing’, ‘tomorrow is unknown’. Whew – So much sadness on social media, the news and just all around. That’s why I am sharing a way to be sure to capture your memories. Protect those photos and keep the memories alive. I always say ‘when I’m gone you will be happy I took all these pics!’ =) Becky Higgins is one of the greatest people to learn from and in this video shares 10 of her favorite Project Life products. Please watch – It’s only 13 minutes…
I don’t know about you but ribbons, tape, glue, buttons – all that just overwhelms me. But, we want our pages to look awesome, right? Well – sometimes less is better and this is one of those times. Keep it simple.
And what size is best? That doesn’t matter either….it doesn’t have to be the huge 12×12. It’s whatever you want.
I will admit that I prefer digital because I feel like it’s ‘safe’ but I would love to have everything printed out so you can touch it, turn the pages and recall those memories. Ronnie has promised to build me a ‘safe room’ in the basement once we get cleaned up. At least then I will feel more comfortable having everything physically available.
Digital is also cheaper. Think about it, you create a page, save in a folder and you’re done.
The choice is yours. Each to his/her own. And Becky has both options available –
I do like the envelopes to keep those items that I just can’t part with. I sorted the kids stuff a year or so ago and scanned some stuff and ‘bagged’ up others. These envelopes will definitely be on my wish list so I can get them into albums.
And just the simple 8 x 10 for those pictures from school. Yearly pics. Sports pics. So much easier than what I did. I basically scanned in the pics, added them to a scrapbook page and attached digital elements. Now that’s still a great plan but these days the faster and easier the better, right? Exactly!
