My brother is the genealogist in our family. We are very fortunate to share in his findings.
I started using Project Life and found that it really makes scrapbooking easy. I am no longer overwhelmed with a blank 12 x 12 canvas, unless I choose it.
Project Life is more of a photo album system. There are different size pockets and designs on the page for you to fill. I used scraps of designer series paper to mat pictures and cards on this page.
Another advantage of using Project Life is that you can change out any of the pockets at any time. You are no longer restricted to keeping a 12 x 12 layout for eternity. What do you think?
