I have never been a big scrapbooker and certainly not a regular one... I'm happy to put one together as a gift or for a special ocassion.
But Project Life might just change that.
Jonathan bought me a kit from a box store ( he's so sweet supporting my craft habit) and this was right around the time that Stampin' Up partnered with Project Life to come out with their own exclusive kits.
I made some with both kinds so you can see...
Some made with big box store Project Life:
And one made with some downloadable freebies from PL:
All are cute but here's the Stampin Up edge--
1) no repeats-- there are at least 10 of each kind in the big box set yet all unique in SU set
Plus they come in a cool storage box!!
2) matches SU colors
3) super high quality cardstock
4) better quality photo pocket pages with better variety
5) and awesome matching accessory packs!!

But it's pretty simple- select photos, select the right journaling cards, write your memories, and slip them in. No pressure. It only took me a few hours to capture six months of memories!!
