The idea behind Project life is to “Keep it simple, to get photos and memories into Albums”.
Project Life can be as simple or as decorative as you like…it’s all up to you. The most important thing is to enjoy what you are doing and have fun with it.
Project Life is a pocket system to storing your photos. Your page protector is made up of pockets in combinations of –
4 x 6 “ (10.2 x 15.3 cm),
4 x 4” (10.2 x 10.2 cm),
3 x 4” (7.6 x 10.2 cm),
2 x 2” 5.1 x 5.1 cm

You can slip your photos into pockets along with Project Life cards that can be for decoration or journal.
With every photo there is a story…your story can be just as important as your photo. Imagine you are showing someone your photos of your holiday…what are you telling them about the photo.
• Who’s in them
• Where you are
• What you’re doing
It doesn’t need to be a long story, it can be in point form (Bullet) or more in depth.
In years to come when someone is looking through your album it’s nice to know why you had a funny look on your face or where you were when that photo was taken.
