Happy Monday! Happy Mojo Monday!!
This week’s challenge is to use a pocket page protector in a project.
This weekend, Wendy and I were lucky enough to participate in a Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine event, Crop & Create in Markham, Ontario. Our main focus was on the classes, and the instructors, one of which was Ali Edwards. Our own Paperie instructor, Krista Wells, had been to another Crop & Create event in the past, and had persuaded us to give it a shot with her this time around.
Ali has been a personal favourite of Wendy’s for some time now, and I too have always admired her desire to make her memory keeping meaningful. Meeting her in person was a moment of “giddiness” followed by a new appreciation for her touch of reality and her fantastic way of communicating her message with a ‘down to earth’ approach.
Ali has been creating a Project Life® album for a number of years now. According to the Project Life® website, Project Life® is an ultra-simple, über-stylish solution for getting your photos off your phone and computer, out of boxes, and into albums. Gone are the days of cutting, pasting, buying oodles of supplies, and spending hours on an album. Or even hours on just one page. The system was developed by someone well-known in our industry, Becky Higgins.
Most Project Life® layouts/pages/albums use page protectors with pockets. There are many brands out there that manufacture these, and really it depends on personal preference. At The Paperie, we have offered a number of classes over the last few years that feature these page protectors, by many of our talented instructors. The idea is that your page (ex: 12×12 , 8.5×11) is divided into sections that have pre-sized pockets for your photos and memorabilia.
Your challenge this week, is to try out this concept. Create a layout using one of these page protectors. I am working on aProject Life® spread for this week using this We R Memory Keepers page protector.
We have lots of options at The Paperie, in varying sizes. Call or email us if you would like more details 🙂
Here is a photo that the Crop & Create website posted as a Sneak Peek to the “A Day in the Life” class we took with Ali. Here you can see a We R album in a 4×4 size, with divided page protectors.
