Scrapbook Circle Be Real

Ok, confession time. I did not finish my 2015 Project Life album. Insert shocked gasps here. I know, I am the worst. And then I didn't start 2016 either and that's when I knew there was a problem. It had gotten to be too much and had become a chore and I wasn't enjoying it anymore. But my kids LOVE looking back at those albums. So, what to do? I decided with this assignment to re-think (once again) what Project Life or pocket page scrapbooking means to me. I decided it means getting my phone or everyday photos into an album. And I decided that album did not NEED to be 12x12. Since I am using my phone photos and most of those print well at 3x4 or 4x4, I decided a 6x8 album was best. So I grabbed a Simple Stories 6x8 album, the Scrapbook Circle kit and got to work.

I love this page protector and will probably use it a lot for my album. I used the 6x6 paper pad from this month's Scrapbook Circle add on to fill a bunch of the squares.

Having coordinating embellishments in the kit makes pulling these spreads together quick and fun!

And in just a couple of pages (and in not much time at all) I was able to complete March! Some of the planner supplies like the Simple Stories clips were perfect for these spreads too!

I used the 12x12 papers from the kit too. They were perfect for monthly dividers that I made in 6x8 sleeves. This is my "cover page." I love the exclusive Scrapbook Circle acrylic word and adhered it right to the outside of my pocket page.

This is one of the monthly dividers. I used the PinkFresh washi strips on top of the fun patterned papers.

And some of the larger embellishments were perfect on these divider pages too!IMG_7788

So if you are anything like me...before you give up on a project, think about what you like, what is making you crazy and what you could do differently that would make the project seem more do-able! There are no rules here! One thing is certain though...Scrapbook Circle kits make ANY project more fun! :)
