Hi everyone!

This is Terri Bradford from CreateScrapbooks.com, and here’s the latest video (showing Week 33) on my Project Life scrapbooking video series on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/user/CreateScrapbooks.

Create Scrapbooks Video – Project Life Series – Week 33 (2013) Layout Share and Scrapbook Process.

My notes from this week on supplies I used: I am STILL loving that I am using my latest Scraptastic Kits (especially the “This Life Noted” PL Style one), Gossamer Blue (especially their “Life Pages” PL Style kit) along with my Studio Calico (PL), Elle’s Studio (Papercrafting/emebellishment kits). The list is below of all the supplies/links to the clubs and more info.

I decided to add a 5×7″ Becky Higgins page protector again this week right in the center of the full 12×12″ F & A page protectors to expand my photos and journaling. It helps to have these types of protectors to accommodate the over-flow (and/or orientation) of photos and journaling elements. As usual, I like to edit in Photoshop to fix any lighting/exposure, and add dates/titles before I print. My printer is a small format that prints either 5×7″ or 4×6″ and it makes those simple enlargements easy for me to do at home. Love that! (You can click on the above photo to see a closer look at the layouts.)

Notes on my Week 33 photos/layouts: Definitely an account of how busy things get and everyday things my family does during a typical August week: work, marching band, Starbucks trip, summer AP homework and getting ready for the school year for my son. Still worth documenting the bits and pieces that make up our lives… routines and all!

Stay tuned for the next video (Week 34 – or I may just skip to December project life spreads to mix it up and work backwards!) I am in the mood to scrap with my newest December kit supplies!

Project Life Scrapbooking Video Series by Create Scrapbooks – Week 31 (July 30-August 5, 2013)

Hi everyone!

This is Terri Bradford from CreateScrapbooks.com, and if you missed the last video and blog post – I started my own Project Life scrapbooking video series on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/user/CreateScrapbooks.

eateScrapbooks.com Project Life Process Idea Video Week 31 Layout Complete (D&H protectors)

Here’s the second video of the weekly series I created – Project Life Series – Week 31 (2013) Layout Share and Scrapbook Process.

I hope you subscribe and comment so we can connect. Click on the little red subscribe box, comment under the video (or here on the blog) and tell me what inspires you.

My notes from this week: I am *loving* using the July and August Scraptastic Kits, along with my Studio Calico, Elle’s Studio, and Paper Posies Kits in the mix. Makes things so much easier to open a fresh exclusive kit and put elements easily together for Project Life spreads. I decided to add an H 6×12″ Becky Higgins page protector right in the center of the full 12×12″ D protectors to expand my photos and journaling this week. It helps to have these types of protectors to accommodate the over-flow (and/or orientation) of photos and journaling elements.

As you can see, even during the summertime my small family has STILL been knee-deep into high school happenings for my son… like marching band, AP classes (and me toting around my teenager to/from school, etc.) Summer went WAY too fast this year. My son is a Junior now and I am trying to get a few of the last week’s of summer Project Life layouts completed. Those will be coming up next in the video series.

Thanks to everyone who has stopped by (excited to see my friends from Germany, Australia, Canada, and more!), downloaded a file or two, sent a message or made a comment, subscribed to my YouTube channel, and has connected with me during the scrapbooking journey! Much creative love to you all. See you next week (or sooner) with week 32.

Friday Freebie: More FREE page protector printable organizational files for you (6×8″ style) for Simple Stories, Project Life, Studio Calico Albums

As I am typing this out I am EXCITEDLY awaiting the UPS man – the delivery of my much anticipated Project Life (Jade Kit) should be at my doorstep any minute. I bet many of you who ordered the Today’s Special on Sunday at HSN.com (Saturday night for me) are expecting to receive your kit shortly as well. I will be doing a open box video soon on it as well, so subscribe to the Create Scrapbooks YouTube Channel if you are interested. (I already have several Project Life by Becky Higgins open box videos up now if you want to see any kits that I have ordered previously.)

I thought I would start “Freebie Friday” today. 

FREE printables from CreateScrapbooks.com to organize your pocket and page protectors for project life 6x8 simple stories albums!

My most recent organizational post was on organization of my Project Life style page protectors from all different manufacturers including larger sized 12×12″, 10×12″,  6×12″ and a few other smaller protectors (you can see the post below or click here to read). I was recently at Michaels checking out any new must-have items and I ran across the 6×8″ Sn@p! Simple Stories page protectors… I grabbed the Variety Pack (10 Pack) and went to the WRMK 12×12″ ringed albums (this is what I have been using for my Project Life so far) to make sure the holes would line up and I could use them as part of my Project Life. They do! I used my coupon and headed home a happy girl.

Then, I realized that in light of my newly organized page protector stash that I needed to add these 6×8″ design sizes I just purchased to my system now. No worries… actually I am super excited to incorporate this size into my stash and projects.

So, today I created another FREE .pdf including just these 6×8″ pocket style page protectors and am sharing that with you (you can download this free along with the whole system – just add them all to your cart and checkout). Enjoy! If you want to just cut these apart and add them to your system as needed you can, or you can purchase the .psd files to create your own custom page protector organizational system (and these DO include this latest update of 6×8″ protectors).

If you haven’t yet make sure you download the larger page protector organization styles (3 packed 8.5×11″ printable .pdf sheets I custom designed) FREE here. 

If you love your new system and this post helped you I would appreciate it if you could please share this post with your creative friends, follow my YouTube Channel hereTwitter, pin on Pinterest, or like the Create Scrapbooks Facebook page – see all the links at the bottom of this site as well. Thanks for your support!
