I’ve been doing Project Life, in some form or fashion, since 2012. You can read about how I started here. I started sharing and posting my pages after Max was born, later that year. And, slowly, over the last few years I’ve discovered and cultivated an amazing network of talented crafters and creators through online Facebook groups and Instagram. Note: if you’re really curious about how I started on this crafting adventure, you can check out some of my first posts, starting here.
Last year, I had the honor of being a part of Becky Higgins’ Creative Team. And that experience, working primarily with the Project Life App to document my year, totally changed the way that I capture and store our family memories.
Apart from the mini books that I know and love so much (and I have made A LOT in the last year!), most of my life documentation is done through the Project Life App and through digital layouts made using Photoshop Elements (I have a Mac, and this is the current PSE version I use) and printed at Photobook America.
And while I have become SUPER organized with storing my digital layouts, I like to track my work physically, on paper, in planners (like the Get to Work Book©) and checklists.
That’s why, every year, I create a physical checklist for my Project Life album.
And because I love it so much, and I know you will too, I’m sharing it here for free.
You’ll notice that the link brings you to a google document. Feel free to download it to Microsoft Excel to change the font, or download it as a PDF, print it on cardstock, and affix it to the inner cover of your project life album.
I use the check boxes to keep track of where I am in the process of making those pages: started (photos are printed), assembled (photos and cards are in place), and finished (journaling, ephemera, and embellishments are added).
You can use it however you want.
Happy Documenting, friends!
