Project Life the CTMH way!

Summer is in full swing here, and we are really having a blast!  Before long, though, the kids will be back in school, and life will resume the routine of early mornings, volunteering, homework and carting kids to and fro.  What's a scrapbooker to do?  How will we find time to keep up with our scrapbooks when our schedule is so crunched?

I've got a great solution, and I hope you'll join me!  I've chosen to keep a running record of our year by doing a Project 365 using Close to My Heart papers and our wonderful Work In Progress Binder! 

So - what exactly IS Project 365?  It's a concept that was popularized by Becky Higgins, to keep a running journal of our days, weeks or months.  Using 4x6 pocket photo protectors that fit into a standard 12x12 album, we add pre-made journaling cards, photos and embellished cardstock pieces to keep a running record of our journey. 

What makes this system so simple is that everything is pre-cut and ready to go.  We just jot down a few notes on a journal card at the end of the day or week, pop in some photos, add an embellished card to a pocket, and DONE.  No worries about layouts or color coordinating our photos and paper - everything is all set to go before we need it.  We just tell the story as it unfolds. 

Join me in September at a special workshop to cut ALL of our papers, get them stamped and embellished, and decorate our Project 365 Box!!  We'll use this box to store all of our 4x6 cards and keep them handy. 

This workshop is FREE when you preorder your supplies (or when you purchase $50 in products from me in August).  Please contact me by Aug 28 and I'll have your things waiting for you, or you can order them online at and have them shipped directly to you.  Make sure to allow at least 2 weeks for your package to arrive!  (it doesn't usually take that long, though!)

You'll have two opportunities to attend this workshop - please choose either Sunday September 16th at 2pm, or Tuesday September 18 at noon.  If neither of these dates work for you, or you need an evening time, drop me an email and I'll make a workshop time just for you!  I want everyone to be able to have a chance to make their scrapbooking FASTER, SIMPLER, EASIER. 
Here's what you'll need for the Workshop:
Your choice of any paper packet ($9.95)
Your choice of Stickease or Embellishment Pack  - $4.95 to $5.95
12x12 Chocolate Legacy Work in Progress Album - Z1348 - $15.95

This will get you started and keep you going for about 3 months of weekly journaling if you use one full page per week. That's 12 pages, double-sided, for a total of 24 weeks.  Not bad for about $50!
