Project Life it is!

Hello everyone!
Its me! Nupur 


One of the best ways to make yourself happy in the present 
is to recall happy times from the past. 
Photos are a great memory-prompt, 
and because we tend to take photos of happy occasions, 
they weight our memories to the good.
~ Gretchen Rubin


AN INTRODUCTION TO PROJECT LIFE


Project Life is an amazing system, 
a very systematic system of recording memories 
it is an ultra-simple, über-stylish solution for getting your photos 
off your phone and computer, out of boxes, and into albums.
It is a revolutionary system to simplify the process of preserving 
your family’s history, your daily/weekly experiences, important days etc






HOW DO YOU “DO” PROJECT LIFE? 
WHICH DIRECTION TO WORK IN?


There are many ways , there is no "wrong "or “right” — way to “do” Project Life. 
Some people keep chronological albums,
some create themed albums 
and some just “go with the flow”, 
creating and filling the sleeves as time permits without imposing
a theme or time-frame on their album
Anything and everything you can think of can be documented in Project life
Its fun, no restrictions no limitations...only fun
It is advised to begin with the day to day experience.
Then slowly proceed towards the week by week
If you’re keeping a weekly Project Life album, 
the way you tell stories may change from week to week. 
That’s okay too 
and then deciding how to work with the theme makes it easier for you to document. 
Do you want to convey your message using text, handwriting, photos, or stuff?
Or a combination of those things? 
If you are not sure and just want to create
you may choose to go on with the flow....
you never know what awaits you...


WHAT’S A LAYOUT/SPREAD/POCKET/INSERT? 

A layout is basically a single page designed for a specific event or a memory or a particular time etc.




A spread usually consists of 2 pages for a specific period of time.




A spread - the albums that are kept daily, weekly or monthly. 
It is also referred as the left-hand page + the right-hand page together. 
Some people may use just one page per week,
Most Project Lifers who document life on a weekly basis put together one spread each week; 
if they have extra memories to include they’ll use an insert instead of adding pages to their spread. 
But sometimes life is too good a multiple spreads are required for a single week. 
If you’re documenting life on a monthly basis, you may use anywhere from one to three or four or more pages to compose a spread.

A pocket is a compartment within the page protector. 
Depending on the size you have chosen the size of the pockets will vary.

An insert is a page protector that is slipped between the left-hand page + right-hand page of a spread. By default, it’s smaller than whatever size page protector your album uses for spreads. For instance, my Project Life album uses 12×12 page protectors for weekly spreads. If I add additional content to a week using an insert, I do so using some variation of a 6×8, 3×3, or 6×12 page protector. 
It measures 6×8 overall, and has two 3×4 vertical pockets and one 6×4 horizontal pocket.
