Project Life Allotment Journal

I just discovered the Project Life system and decided to try it for documenting my first year on the allotment. I usually scrapbook or bullet journal, Project Life seemed like a perfect compromise between the two.

I was initially drawn to the idea of pocket journalling because I liked the idea of keeping seed packets and pressed flowers with out the glueing and sticking of scrapbooking. I'm hoping to create a tidy layout that I can reference next year when I'm picking out seeds and deciding what to grow again.

I took the leap and purchased a value kit of cards and one set of pockets to see if I thought it was a system that I could make work for me. Once I'd decided it was for me I also bought the 6x8 album and a We R Memory Keepers corner chomper to get the classic round edged corners on my photos.

I've been printing my own photos at home on our old Epson printer but ink is fairly pricey and the picture quality could be better. I've heard that the Canon Selphy is great for instantly printing your photos at home and that might be one to look into in the future. Project Life is expensive to get started with and the availability in the UK isn't great. Although, there are plenty of online sellers which is where I bought everything from.
