sneak a peek: colin’s baby book

I feel like a broken record.  I love Project Life.  I love Project Life.  I LOVE PROJECT LIFE.  I started using Becky Higgin’s system in 2011 as a way to put my everyday photos to use.  I had thousands of photos on my computer & iPhone that were never seen until I discovered this simple format.  I could write a whole post about my Project Life books (maybe I will…), but this post is about Colin.  And his beautiful baby book.

I was thrilled when Becky announced her new Baby Editions of Project Life.  The release was perfectly timed with the arrival of our first baby.  Match made in heaven.  I’m using the digital version of her kit.  It’s easier for me since I live in Photoshop and I’m not very diligent about printing my photos. Upside: Super easy for digital photos. Easy to make multiple copies.  Downside: Waiting ALL YEAR to see a printed copy.
It’s not finished (Colin is only 4 months old), but since so many of my friends are currently expecting, I wanted to give everyone a sneak peek into the book…

[there are still a few blank journaling cards (waiting on some info from Dad)
and when I was proofing this post I realized all the milestone cards are labeled 2012 instead of 2013- oops.]

Becky has made it super simple with the pre-written prompt cards (and the designs are SO dang cute!).  If you purchase the physical kit from Amazon, you get hundreds of these cards that simply slide into the album slots.  Simple as can be!  No photoshop experience needed!

New to the Project Life concept?  Check out Becky’s getting started page.

Already have the Baby Kit & looking for inspiration?  Here are close ups of the Time Capsule pages with all the data/info I found on Google (should be good for 2012/2013 babies)- hopefully it’ll save you some time!

[Although the Pope has already changed… totally didn’t see that coming!]

 Let me know if you have any questions about Project Life- Baby Editions!

LOVE LOVE LoVe this book! I’m doing the traditional PL baby edition, but I love your ideas! I thought it was neat that you live in South Bend. I also live in Michiana! :-)

Your pages are beautiful! I hope you will share more. They are super inspiring and make me want to do a Project Life baby book for my 9(!) year old.

Thanks for sharing this post…..I’m working on my baby book for my third baby…also a boy…..the time capsule info was a great help….I’ve been putting off tracking down that information for several months now….I feel like I’m starting to knock out some of the stuff for Fulton who was also a November baby!

I found this from Becky’s link to your page…I’m just getting started on my son’s baby album using the digital Project Life. Thanks for the inspiration! Do you use a background paper or just leave it to print white behind the photos/cards?

A huge thank you for posting this! I have yet to get started on mine (and my “babies” are 9 and 6), but seeing how you organized yours helps a ton. Beautiful job and lovely photos.

new to your page from Becky’s FB link. I have to say ths is probably my most favorite baby book I have ever seen using PL.

Nicole - April 9, 2013 - 7:59 pm

Your book looks awesome so far! I JUST received my physical version of the boy Baby Edition for my son who is just turning one. I am doing PL digitally, but wanted to do a physical version for his album… We’ll see how it turns out! Sometimes I wonder if I should have just done it digitally as well!

Regi H - April 9, 2013 - 6:14 pm

First of all- thank you for sharing. Mine is 13 and I still haven’t done his baby books. I am so glad I found Becky. :) Secondly- my goodness he was a BIG baby! LOL. Thank you for all the ideas.

Are these physical cards the same as the digital version of her baby kit?

Valerie - April 9, 2013 - 5:48 pm

Love this… I want to do this so bad,but have trouble starting and these just gave me a jump start. Thanks fot the great ideas.. Hope you don’t mind I might steal a few ideas..

I love this sooo much. Have been thinking of using PL for my great-neice’s album and now I am convinced to do it! Thanks for the inspiration.

Tiffany - April 9, 2013 - 5:29 pm

What a wonderful treasure you have/are creating for your son. Thanks for the inspiration. I found you from Becky’s Fb post.

Hi Casey! I just found you via Becky Higgins and I just love the Project Life stuff and think your baby book is lovely. Thanks for posting.

Tracey Caudle - April 9, 2013 - 4:58 pm

Love this! Thanks for the inspiration. I need to do my daughter’s baby book (she is now seven, LOL) and my son’s (who just turned two). Seeing your pages definitely inspired me! Thanks again!

This is such a wonderful keepsake for your son! How great will it be when he can look back at this and enjoy these moments? VERY well done (so far)!!! :)
