2015 Scrapbook || Project Life

DSCN1938 text DSCN1948 DSCN1949 DSCN1950

If you're a Lily Pebbles fan (if you aren't, why not?) then it's obvious that you would have seen this video about the Project Life Scrap Book Lily started last year. I've now watched the video four times, stalked scrapbooking youtube channels and spent a small fortune on scrapbooking essentials.

I thought i'd blog about my experience as if like me, you're a complete beginner then it's hard deciding what you need and what you don't need. First of all, a trip to Hobbycraft is a definite must (also check ebay and amazon to save some £££). Choose your book, I went for the 12 x 12 Blush edition scrapbook (£19.99) and picked the Page Protecters in Design D for the images (£6.99). I bought some stickers and journal notes to add to some of the pages and left it at that (UPDATE: I've been back twice to pick it more decorative bits and ordered a few bits from Ebay).

After some research I decided to buy some Core Cards as I didn't just want it to be full of photographs. I chose the Celebrate kit (£7.00) and some partial kits from Ebay.This is a good way to save money, the core kits are around £30 and contain 600 cards so there are lots of people selling partial kits for around £6-£8! I then picked up some more letters and washi tape for extra decoration.

To house all the little added decorations, I picked up a £5 storage box from Hobbycraft and filled it up. This is perfect storage for scrapbooking materials as you can keep little scraps of paper etc without fear of them getting lost. I'm aiming to set one day aside a month to complete a page so i'm glad I bought somewhere to keep everything. I might try and do one post a month showing you the page i've completed, if that sounds like something you'd be interested in then let me know.

If you've started a scrap book and are blogging/vlogging about it let me know, i'm obsessed with looking at them!

  3. I LOVE scrapbooking!! I spend way to much money on all the supplies over the summer, that I had to take a break from it after awhile haha :) I should have definitely bought a kit like you instead of buying everything individually! I can't wait to see it when its all done.
