Project Life Family Album Update

Today I wanted to dive into all things Project Life. I have mentioned several times over the last few weeks that I was on Project Life overload, and struggling somewhat with our Family Project Life Album.

I have been taking 2 amazing workshops through Ali Edwards that have really inspired me. I’m feeling excited once again to document our everyday stories.

{Project Life Family Album Update}

I thought that I would share with you a few of the photos from our family album. I still haven’t completed my journaling, and there are a few embellishments I still want to add.

I am feeling so much better about my layouts. I feel like they are coming together nicely.

Week #8


I thought I would share with you a few things I’m changing, a few things I’m keeping the same, and a few things I’ve created to help me with Project Life going forward.


Weekly vs Monthly: Let’s just get this out of the way. I’m a weekly kind of girl. I’ve tried doing our family album by the month, and I’ve also tired not to care. I simply like the format that the weekly layout gives me.

It is also how my mind works. When I’m looking through photos, and printing them out I can recall which day of the week it happened on.

Below is a Project Life Design A graphic that show my basic layout each week.


Designer A: I started feeling like maybe Design A was too boring to use for my entire album. Every week, all year long.

However, I’ve decided that I like the foundation of Design A. This makes getting my photos in my album each week easy. I like being able to use other designs as an insert for special events.


One of things that I struggle with the most is getting my photos printed. I currently am using Snapfish to get all my photos printed. I have been using Snapfish for over 10 years.

The one option I really like that Snapfish offers is the ability to print my photos in a matte finish.

However, because Snapfish is online I have to upload photos, and then wait up to 2 weeks to get my photos back.

Weekly Printing: I’ve decided to start printing my photos weekly. I will be uploading the to snapfish, and then having them printed locally. 

Monthly Kit: I have decided to try out a monthly kit. I’m going to be trying out Ali Edwards Craft The Story Themed Monthly Kits. I am in need of some fresh embellishments. I think this will be the perfect way to build up a stash. 


These are the items that I will be using for our Family Album.
