Project Life + Library of Memories is an album approach and recurring blog series at Simple Scrapper.

Project Life is a modular system of products created by Becky Higgins. Library of Memories is a non-chronological memory keeping approach developed by Stacy Julian.

Here’s a video I created for a Big Picture Classes Pajama Party that introduces the general concept.

These are the posts I’ve shared thus far featuring my combined album approach:

  1. My PL + LOM Approach
  2. Preparing for 2013
  3. 2011-2012 Album In-Progress
  4. 3 Steps to Getting Started
  5. 2013 Album In-Progress
  6. 2014 Album In-Progress
  7. Organization & Workflow
  8. Get-it-Finished Planning

Nooo, every PL you tube is week this,day that, needless to say, I have a whole BUN H of PL stuff that I don’t and cant (remember the thousands of pictures, no dates) find anyone who uses PL like I thought was the way to use it! Do you show your PL books on you tube? I am soo glad I found you!ūüėÜūüėā

      Yay, I’m so thrilled this concept resonates with you Elena. In the post about the baby book I have a video where I talk through two albums for 2011-2012.
