Memory Keeping

My Favourite Tools

Physical memory keeping | Scrapbook Werkstatt is my fave for scrapbooking supplies in Germany

Photo books | MILK / Moleskine or Blurb*

Digital memory keeping | Paislee Press is pretty much the only digital paper, elements, and journal cards that I use.

I have the full Adobe Creative Cloud* because I use at least three of the applications every single day (Photoshop, Bridge, and Premiere Pro), and the others (InDesign and Illustrator) at least once weekly. I know that it is an investment ($49.99 pm), so if you’re still learning, I recommend starting with Photoshop and then going on to the other ones.

Adobe Photoshop CC* for photo editing, blog graphics, and pretty much everything in my life ($9.99 pm including Lightroom)

Adobe Bridge* for photo organisation (free!)

Adobe InDesign* for making PDFs for class workbooks, free downloadables, and printables ($19.99 pm)

Adobe Illustrator* for logos ($19.99 pm)

Adobe Premiere Pro* for video editing ($19.99 pm)

(If you’re a teacher or a student, you get 60% off Creative Cloud plans*)

Freebie | Hello 2015 Project Life Cards

Happy twenty fifteen, you gorgeous person. I love sharing freebies for totally selfish reasons. Seeing people make things with them make me oh so happy. It's the same as seeing what people make with kits that I've got too (like the Gossamer Blue one). I love how one...

Freebie | Week Title Cards

Unfortunately these are no longer available. Keep an eye out on the blog for 2016 title cards. I am a lover of consistent title cards. I couldn't imagine coming up with a creative idea for a title card every single week. I'm almost certain that I will be continuing...

Project Life 2014 | A Year of Weeks

Because I didn't share every week with you this year, here are all of my spreads in one place. 67 photos coming your way... If you'd like to see a larger version, I have these images on Flickr. Also, there's that video I posted last...

Project Life | Digital Planning for 2014

The best thing about a new year is all the new planning. I started planning my 2014 Project Life in the middle of 2013. Enthusiastic. I know. Here's what it's looking like: Since I'd be looking at my folders at least once a week I thought they might as well be pretty....

My Digital Project Life Process

I shared my traditional Project Life process on the Essence blog back in October, and today I'm sharing digi. A few bullet points that I don't note in my video: I used the Paislee Press In Progress kit I used Archer and Brandon Grotesque as my standard fonts for the...

Project Life T + C | The Story Documented

In what just may be the most stupid decision in paper documenting, I have started documenting T and my relationship from when we met up until our marriage. That's 2008 to 2013, and coincides with when I started Project Life. It's the ultimate "catch up", at least...
