Project Life Organization

Each has their own specific organizing technique that works best, and many times it takes a while after starting any project, like Project Life, to figure out what is your best way.   One begins slowly accumulating items, like  card kits from Becky Higgins (www.beckyhiggins.com).  I started with the Clementine set and used only that for a while.  Now I have the standard sets of Clementine, Cobolt, Cherry and the mini For Him) and various 12×12 papers and stencils from the local Hobby Lobby (which now carries some of the Becky Higgins Project Life items).  I found that boxes and a plastic rolling cart from Hobby Lobby worked fine.

This also shows the many cards I printed out from Pinterest to insert because of the beautiful colors or the intriguing words.  I also made many cards by adding washi tape or doodling onto the journal cards (which I’ll show and discuss at a later time).

This cart can be rolled around to accommodate use of space and where one happens to be working.    The 2 lower drawers are filled with 12×12 paper and pads of paper, pictures I’ve taken from various batches so I can go back and look for what I want, stencils, stickers, paints/pens/brushes, stamps and stamp pads, etc.   The cart came with each drawer having a lid which is perfect for traveling but for everyday use, I took off the lids for easy and quick access.  Works great for me.

I made this for my grand-daughter’s birthday after having seen something like it in a “Cloth, Paper, Scissors” magazine.  It was a joy to design, to put together and to add the little memories.

The little notepad in the front had some memories regarding her four paternal great-grandparents and grandparent.
