Project Life is a popular and simplified project for recording daily life. Using photo sleeves, or divided page protectors and journaling cards to write about your photos is a much more manageable and sustainable form of scrapbooking.
I’m glad it works for so many scrapbookers, but I personally have never been a fan. Here’s why: there is no way, however simple the format might be, that I could keep up with daily or even weekly scrapbooking. It’s just too much and too overwhelming. And to be honest, I am fairly certain my children don’t want to lug around hundreds of scrapbooks when I’m gone. Too many details to be sustainable and meaningful for me.
But, I love the simple concept of the photo sleeves and journaling cards so here’s what my solution is: Albums Made Easy. It’s perfect for me. No pressure to “keep up” with anything. I create the pages I want when I want to. I sometimes will do a month-in-review layout, but I can also slip in pages about events, relationships, personalities, or whatever I want. Love it!
Here are a few recent examples, plus links to more about these pages on the We R blog.

So, what do you think? Are you a Project Life fan, or more an Albums Made Easy person? If you’ve never done either, would you give one a try or stick to traditional scrapbooking?
