I have fun news today. My Olive Edition core kits and papers for Project Life have arrived. They are now in stock at Amazon.com and available for purchase with Amazon's FREE Super Saver Shipping. Becky assures me that she ordered gobs of product, but she also laments that her products tend to sell out with ridiculous speed. I'm not sure where that leaves us on urgency.
But, I do know that it's the beginning of a new year—and the perfect time to get going on a Project Life album. The Project Life concept makes documenting your life fun—and easy. You only have to fuss as much as you like to fuss. And if you don't like to fuss, there's no need to fuss.
For Project Life, you use pocket pages to organize your photos and then you add in color, design and documentation using one or more of the Project Life kits—like my Olive Edition core kit here. Each core kit comes with hundreds of cards for jotting down key bits of information pertaining to the photos in your album. Everything goes in a pocket page. And there are lots of pocket-page configurations to choose from. Super simple.
The Olive Edtion core kit is housed in a chic, glossy box and organized as you see below, in a tidy tray. In the larger compartment, there are title cards and foldable journaling cards with lots of writing space. All of the smaller cards have artwork on one side and journaling space on the reverse.
There are scrapbookers who go wild with their embellishments, preferring all sorts of texture and flair within their layouts. And there are others who like simple, clean layouts. Project Life is designed to satisfy everyone.
I like goop, well-done goop, that is. But, I don't have time to goop. I do have time, however, to slip photos and cards into pockets. And my kids are expert pocket-slipper-inners. Project Life works for me and my busy, busy life in this way.
Of course, you know I'll find at least a dozen other ways to sneak Olive Edition cards from their well-ordered little box and use them for other purposes: gift tags, thank you cards, bookmarks, valentine ornaments—lots of ways to spread this loveliness about.
Oh, that's right. There's a 12"x12" coordinating paper pack. I can use that.
There are also some cool, plastic month dividers and a coordinating album/binder that should be in stock soon. These are still making their way to Amazon's warehouse.
Here are links to the products available so far:
To pull up my collection over on Amazon as items are added, search "Olive Edition Project Life" in their Arts, Crafts & Sewing Department. I don't think Becky has "Heather Bailey" on the listing yet.
