I have always admired people who create gorgeous scrapbooks with their personal photos. It is such a creative and pretty way to share your family photos, but it’s not for everyone. While I love to look at scrapbooks, the idea of making one myself makes me cringe a little. I have no patience for cutting up little pieces of paper and photos, and I know I would ruin my pictures. Thankfully the Stampin’ Up scrapbooking company realized that there are people like me out there, and developed a product that is perfect for me.

The scrapbooking company Stampin’ Up! is excited to launch its new limited edition Project Life collection. What is Project Life, you might ask? It’s a super simple, creative and totally affordable way to get your favorite photos organized into personalized albums. It’s a back-to-basics approach to scrapbooking that requires no scissors, no glue, no tools, no skills of any kind! It’s a great and easy way to scrapbook your best memories in a personalized way that you can touch and feel—a nice alternative to keeping photos on a phone or computer screen. And it’s a fun family activity anyone can participate in!

We had a pretty amazing summer and I was happy to be able to share our vacation photos in a way that is nice to look at but not difficult to put together. To do this, I was sent the following Project Life items:

  • 1 black faux Leather Project Life Album
  • 1 variety pack Project Life Photo Pocket Pages (12 pages per pack)
  • 1 Playground Project Life Card Collection
  • 1 Day to Day Photopolymer Stamp set
  • 1 Playground Project Life Accessory Pack
  • 1 clear block
  • 1 stampin pad (basic gray)
  • 1 black Project Life Journaling Pens (2 pens per pack)

Basically it is just a photo album that I can use to be as creative or simplistic as I want. It comes with a stampin’ block and various stamps to use with it, and using those I can personalize my photos and album. I like the cards that can be put with the photos or by themselves. They are a nice way to break up the pictures.

So I can finally say I’m a scrapbooker, sort of. This kit nudged me to print my photos, which I don’t always get around to doing, and I am proud of what I have put together so far. I can’t wait to print more pictures and finish the book.

One of my lucky readers will win a Project Life kit too! Win all of the items I listed above by entering below.
