Hello Catch Up with Project Life!

Annette Haring





Hello my fellow Project-Lifers! I am so beyond thrilled to be sharing my latest collaborative class at Big Picture Classes called Catch Up with Project Life!

It is a 3 week online class taught by me, Megan Anderson and Trisha Harrison. It starts October 30th but registration is open now so you can get started on the first three challenges. Cost is only $30 for some amazing content, prizes and a lot more!

It is all about MAKING PROGRESS and HAVING FUN with filling in gaps or "catching up" with our Project Life. 

It is about joining together as a community to inspire and uplift one another. 

It is about letting go of guilt and getting more done.

It is about welcoming beginners and helping seasoned Project Lifers find their groove.

Are you excited yet?



Below are some peeks at some of the layouts I have created for this class. I just counted the pages I have created and I am blown away. For this chronically behind, gap-laden Project Lifer, I have created or filled in pretty big gaps for over 40 pages and caught up on over three months of Project Life, all while staying somewhat current. It's seriously cool. I am more motivated than ever to keep going back and start filling in the smaller gaps. 

And yet…I have never technically "finished" a Project Life album. 

Why would I share that with you when I am supposed to be "an expert?" (who knows what that really means anyways.) But seriously, I share that because I am just like you. I am a busy working mom. I love taking photos and memory keeping. I dabble in the online scrapbooking world. I love to start projects. I really do. I just have a hard time finishing them!

I share that because when my family looks at my albums, they focus on all that I have created. The memories and moments that are captured. Not that my use of visual triangles or rounded versus squared corners. They are just happy to see photos and read stories. And yes, I'm happy my daughter loves  stickers and embellishments too. But that's beside the point.

The point is: memory keeping with Project Life is awesome! But like with any attempt at chronological documentation, it is very easy to "fall behind" and have gaps in our albums. 




What is the class NOT about?

This class is not about seeing who has the most gaps. 

This is not about seeing who is the best at keeping up. 

This class is not about saying you have to do it our way. 

This class is not a race or a competition to see who can create the most layouts. 

It is about learning techniques and principles to help you fill in gaps and possibly keep current while doing so. 

The main idea is that we have created 12 challenges, each with lots of instruction including video presentations, video tutorials, pdf handouts and bonus worksheets. These 12 challenges are designed around some of the main "reasons why" people fall behind or have gaps. And the fun thing: we have a prize for each challenge! So even more motivation to complete the challenges!

We also have bonus collaborative handouts tackling some other areas where people may struggle: title pages, memorabilia and how to handle those "extra projects" like Week in the Life™ or December Daily™.





As if that isn't enough, there will be emails throughout the week to help keep you motivated and inspired, including some printables.

There will be a gallery and message boards + live video chats with the instructors.

Yes, it's a lot! But wait, there's more! (insert infomercial voice here!)

Are you a beginner? We have you covered! We have tips for beginners as well as those who have been working on Project Life for a while. 

Are you current in your Project Life? We have tips and motivation for you as well with photo and journaling prompts to help inspire even more life documentation for the three weeks of class. Plus, you will be learning principles to help you as you move forward.

And finally, we are going to be finishing the class with a big Catch Up with Project Life Party! A full 12 hours for us to play together with additional inspiration from us as well as some very special guests to help you really bust out and finish your pages for the challenges.

Needless to say, this class has been a labor of love. We really wanted to create something that would be fun + inspirational + focus on getting more done. We are not perfect. This class is likely not perfect. But I think it's pretty darn good and I really hope you will join us.

So here are a few of my sneaks and you can click here to find out more about the class and sign up. (I have a coupon code below as well.)

Big Hint: if you sign up now, you can get started on our first 3 challenges in pre class. That's right! It's like getting an extra week of class and it will give you time to figure out what you want to work on and get ready for the rest of the class.

*****************************************************

First up: one big tip. If you are going to be working on pages from various years, I highly recommend grabbing an extra album if you have one available. It really helped me keep focused just on the layouts I wanted to work on and it was super motivating to see this album fill up. The album I used is this one: this really fun black and white striped album from the  Heidi Swapp Project Life edition. You can find that here or at your local Michael's store.

Seriously, this album is almost full now!


Have big gaps? I had two big gaps in my 2013 album. Seriously, this was what my October and November 2013 looked like when I started.



And here are some sneaks of the finished pages.




And yes, those are sneak peeks of pages created using the newly released Project Life® App!! Check out more information about that from Becky Higgins here.

Do you have smaller areas to fill in? We have ideas for that too.

I fell behind with my attempt to do a photo a day for December Daily™ in December of 2012. I was able to complete the month following the principles in class and I have ideas on how to finish that year's December Daily™ too!




Are you excited yet? Okay, so what are you waiting for!! Just go here and check out more about the class and get registered! We are so excited to help you get started catching up.





So just say "YES!" to both donuts for dinner and having more fun playing catch up with your Project Life! We are so thrilled to have you join us!!
