Underneath the layout squares, I have a simple to do box. This is for helping me stay on track with what I need to do for each layout. I pre-listed some basics like printing out pictures, selecting which cards I’ll use and embellishing. I also left a few bullets blank so I can add in stuff as I go. Since I’m still figuring out my Project Life style, and my process for creating a layout, the things on my to do list may change as I become more experienced.
The rest of that page, as well as most of the next, is filled with spaces for each day of the week. This is the meat of why I created this planner. Somewhere I can easily jot down notes and memories from each day. I want it to kind of act like a journal, but more of an at-a-glance snap-shot version. I have been mostly jotting down snippets of information to help jog my memory when it comes time to work on that week’s layout.
I am absolutely loving having my Project Life planner to help me stay organized when working on my layouts. It takes a lot of time out of the planning phase. It has also easily allowed my to jump in and out of my current spread whenever I have time to work on it. I can simply pull out my planner, and remember exactly what I was working on. I feel like I can truly remember and record all the happenings of my daily life.
And the best part is, this Project Life planner is just the basic beginning of what I have in mind for this binder. I’m already planning some new additions to this planner in the future. I am also hoping to make this my one stop reference binder for Project Life. I have all the reference files from Becky Higgins for the kits I own downloaded on my computer, ready to be printed out and added into my binder once I get the chance. That way, when picking out cards for a layout, I won’t have to sift through thousands (yes thousands…yikes!) of cards to find the perfect one. I can simply flip through the couple of pages per kit in my Project Life planner!
I am so excited I finally have a place to help me organize and plan my Project Life-ing, and I’m so excited to keep adding to this binder. But for right now, I am so pleased to have a place to help me stay on top of recording the good life I am cultivating. If you love what you see and can’t wait to start making your own Project Life planner, head over here to get the pages I used.
