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 | Bad Day Cards

These past two weeks have been really rubbish. And sometimes Project Life just can't be all about the happy parts.  Since I couldn't find any applicable digital cards to go in my bad week, I made a few simple ones myself. In black, white, and glitter, obviously.  ...

16 Lessons from my First Year of Project Life

Now that I have been Project Lifing for almost a year, I am an expert. Well, obviously not, but I do have some lessons from fifty spreads. Bare with me, there are quite a few for a noob like me. 1. I do not like mixed page protectors I bought the big mixed page...

Freebie | Hello 2014

I scanned in a few versions of my handwriting in "hello" a while back, and with the start of a new year I thought now would be the perfect time to use them. I've saved the files as .png so they have lovely transparent backgrounds to make it easier for you to put over...

Project Life | Plans for 2015

Living in a third world country with very limited access to scrapbooking products, I'm forced to plan way, way ahead. When my mom visited Germany for work back in August, I had to make sure my order from Scrapbook Werkstatt would be all ready to be delivered to her...

The Ultimate Project Life Catch Up Guide

Okay so you've committed yourself to weekly Project Life spreads? Good for you. That's the way I do it, and that's the way most people do it. The number one disadvantage of the weekly pages is that getting behind can happen really quickly. In fact, it takes exactly...

Project Life 2014 | Album Video

I made a video of my Project Life album for 2014 because I felt it's a lot nicer to feel like you're paging through the album rather than just looking at still photos. There's only one album this year because we were kinda boring and we worked a lot, but I'm happy to...
